Hello and Welcome

My name is Kiera Bryant and I'm just like a lot of other aspiring writers out there. I love what I do, but I don't quite know where to begin when it comes to making my dream a reality. Well, I want to get published one day, and I'm starting here! I need a writing circle! I need people who are willing to read my material and give honest, constructive feedback.

I'm also looking for other writers out there who need a community for the same purpose. Now, I know that there are other writing circles and guilds out there, but I'm hoping to generate something a bit more personal. An online community of friends, some we may already know, some we may be meeting for the first time.

Now - about me - I'm a writer of Paranormal Romance. I adore the genre and am very, shall we say 'passionate' about it. I've read a lot of books in this category of romance and always have a voracious appetite for more. That said, I'm kind of persnickety about my PNR. I'm not going o be hooked onto a story or series just because a writer throws a vampire or two into the mix. I love good quality pnr. This is a genre that's becoming more and more crowded everyday, along with the overall umbrella of romance in general. For a long time, writers and readers of romance have been trying to get this literary form the respect that it deserves. I'd like my chance at the podium. Who knows, maybe I'm actually good enough? If you're interested to know more about my day-to-day happenings, feel free to follow me at!

Some of you may be wondering why I've chosen to call this blog circle "Kassiopeia's Words". Well, in Ancient Greek, Kassiopeia literally means "she whose words excel". I'm a nut for the Classics, so there you have it. As time goes on and as (hopefully) I garner some more readers and writers, I'd like to expand Kassiopeia into something more. For now, let's take things one step at a time.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia, but I'm hoping to get to know people from all across the country and all over the world. The only limitation is that I'd like to stick to writers of romance. It doesn't have to be Paranormal, but it's gotta be about love. I'm a sucker for romance, what can I say?


  1. Nice blog and nice words. I too am a sucker for Romance. I do enjoy paranormal romance and have one completed ms. It's a hard genre to break into, i think. I've been in circles that tend to stay away from romance. LOL

  2. Hey, thanks for your feedback! I was scrolling through your blog, too and LOVED what I saw. I'm really just getting started. I've been concerned about breaking into the genre, but I'm going to give it a shot. In addition to joining the writing circle, I've joined a Goal Meeting group. When I have the money, I'm also going to join RWA. If anything, I'll have fun and meet other creative nutcases, like myself! :o)
