What started as a way to keep my hand in when I was having doubts about my place in the writing world ended up becoming the top-rated work in the horror category of the site and the fourth-rated work overall among something like 67,000 total works on the website.
TextNovel is long gone, but you can read NERVOSA and even own a copy, thanks to Full Speed Publishing.
The Parkers are down-on-their-luck, desperately in need of a fresh start and a lucky break. When Rose is sucked into a cycle of recurring dreams filled with monstrously burned and disfigured people, her world unravels and her dreams start to become a nightmarish reality.
I discovered the phenomenon around 2015. I thought for some time it’d be interesting to try my hand at it. Nervosa is my first attempt. It’s a horror novel that I updated twice a week for nearly two years. At that time, Textnovel.com was no longer as active as it once was. There were still both writers and readers, but many works that began years earlier had been left abandoned, unfinished, by their authors. Posting a brand-new story and updating it regularly gained me an unexpectedly large following on the site. It seems that even those authors still writing their works were only updating sporadically and without intending to, I became the primary provider of content on the site for a while.
During that time, Nervosa jumped up the rankings charts quickly, eventually becoming the number-one-rated work in the horror genre, beating out the former number one by nearly ten-thousand votes and views. Considering the previous work had been on the site for something like six years, I was thrilled and honored to have so many people read and support my work.
