Description of book "Alice in Mapleland"

Author_Natalia Archer
First love can come at any time. Especially when you are not looking for it.
Alice was not following a white rabbit in a forest, but she was lucky to meet a nice guy in a white sweater, wearing plush reindeer antlers. He can bring her to a real fairytale. Or a nightmare. No one knows for sure. All Alice needs to do is to take his hand and meet his friends.

How much time do you need to fall in love?

So, I have read few chapters and I must say this story gives a feel good vibe which is rare considering most of the popular stories I have read. I was smiling all the way through the chapters. Alice is cute and Den too :p At last I would love to say that this story seems somewhat real, like the incidents may happen somewhere. I will for sure read the entire story and see how it turns. Keep Writing dear, you write great

Many many emotions!!! I like how Den is taking care of Alice in that party, his reactions about risks with unknown people and unknown drinks. His talk by phone with Mr.Dad is perfect! He is responsible young man it is good for me.
Thanks a lot i'm Meat Loaf's fan... well special that song!!!
See u soon))))

Thank you, Svetlana! :-)
I'm so glad that you like Den. I hope he won't disappoint you. )
I love the song as well. Though the name of the group I found out only now, especially for the chapter. Need to listen to other songs by them. :-)
Thank you!

This was a fun read! I like that Alice blows Chloe off instead of sinking to her level. It keeps with the lighthearted atmosphere of the story! The quintessential coffee shop date is a nice addition! Overall the story is a warm, engaging brew (just like Christmas)! Reminds me of those great 90s rom-coms. Good writing and keep at it!

Hello )))
How can u understand a person better? Many ways to do it..... to walk with him, to share your sweet memories about holidays, to make fun, to describe your school and friends.
So our teenagers are doing well))))

Светлана Михалева, We will know about his friends very soon. Let's check if the saying "Tell me who your friends are, I’ll tell you who you are" is true. :)
Thank you, Svetlana! (✿◠‿◠)

Ch 4: Ooh so looks like Alice and Den are acting as the "fake girlfriend-boyfriend" which I like this trope, although they already feel very genuine together in such a short amount of time so it'll only be a matter of time before it becomes real, right? :) Oh no, so Alice unfortunately gets targeted by Chloe, Den's ex on sight. >:( Alice's imaginary conversation of what Den and Chloe were discussing from afar made me laugh with Chloe putting the PlayStation into the washing machine and them disagreeing on the scent of the softener. I love Alice's positive attitude and humour in these circumstances and she didn't let Chloe's words ruin her day. :)

Наталия Арчер 14.02.2021, 23:07:42

noveltealover, Yeah, Den is too good to be let go of easily. We will know what was her problem, why she lost Den and surely will meet her again. :)
I need to hope that Alice will save her day once more, but first, we need to get what is on Chloe's mind. ))

noveltealover 14.02.2021, 17:46:57

Hii, I'm back again! Ooh I love your new book cover! It even looks like Alice is wearing a winter coat with the snowflakes love the way her hair looks like it's being blown by the wind. Fitting for the time your story is set during winter. :) I just finished Ch 5 (which I'll share my thoughts separately in other comments since there's a word limit unfortunately hahah). I really needed something sweet and fluffy to read this weekend and Alice in Mapleland was perfect for it. ^_^ Reading your story always fills me with warm, fuzzy feelings like a mug of hot cocoa on a cold winter day.

noveltealover, Your comment has the same power on me (warm, fuzzy feelings)), thank you SO MUCH! I reread your comments and they feel my heart with utter joy. ❤️❤️❤️
I like the cover too). I decided there should be brightness in colors to match the main character. ))
Thank you! ❤️

noveltealover 09.02.2021, 07:38:08

Hullo! I just finished the end of Ch 3. Alice and Den's interactions are too cute. They're literally the cute in the 'meet-cute' hehe. It's neat to see popular references as well like HP (proud Hufflepuff here ahah) in their conversations. The story is very sweet so far and it just makes me grin from ear-to-ear as Alice and Den get to know each other while they're walking around in the forest. Oh, just one thing I noticed so far in Ch 2 if you don't mind me mentioning, but I saw that Alice's thoughts were written with double quotations instead of italics or single quotation marks. At first I thought she was talking out loud from this line till I re-read it: ["Ok," I think to myself. "Let's get to know..."] I'm not sure if in later chapters, thoughts are expressed in this format but just wanted to bring it up in case it hasn't been mentioned before. Anyway, I needed something fun and light-hearted to read so thank you for sharing your story with us! I plan to catch up to your most recent update some time later this week. Till then~ (❁´◡`❁)

noveltealover, Thank you very much!
I changed the inner speech for italics, it really looks better now.
It's a little strange when I write in the first person singular, to mark the parts she thinks, where every author's line is hers )))
But everyone needs to talk to him\herself from time to time, right? ))

noveltealover 14.02.2021, 17:48:09

Ch 5: Aww, Alice & Den's conversation about Christmas in Tahiti was cute. Hanging flip-flops instead of stockings and decorating with seashells instead of ornaments sounds equally as fun and festive for the Christmas spirit. :3 Den's group of friends seem like a funny bunch! Especially Eric who is Den's "best friend" xD At first I thought him helpful trying to mention that Alice and Den had met online about a month ago but yikes, that was when Den was with Chloe so the help he was trying to give had less of an impact. But it's the thought that counts, right? xD I'm also looking forward to Alice hopefully getting to know Den's friends better and become their friends too. I also wonder what the name QV stands for like Alice haha. Can't wait to read about Alice & Den's coffee break/date later ^_^

Светлана Михалева 14.02.2021, 06:50:42

Hello ❤
It was so sweet chapter with strong coffee's smell. I am always getting lost in cafe i want to try all of the flavors in menu but prefer capuchino. I understood Den very well)))
P.s., Hope you will fine the best job for you. Good luck ❤

I'm so grateful to you that you write the feelings after reading a chapter. It's unbelievably precious! Thank you very-very much! ❤️❤️❤️
I wait for your comments the day when I wake up well-rested))) Just want to describe the intensity of my anticipation of your feedback. ))
Your words inspire me. Thank you!

I love how this story is so light and cute. The festive time of christmess ,I could smell it.I have just read 3 chapters yet and the boook is in my lobrary now. it perfectly described those googly feelinds of a teenage girl and the meet cute was simple yet not a cliche. i'll continue reading it whenever i need to relax. it seems like a book that can cheer you up after a long hectic day.

I hope you will like the story till the final words: “The end”. ))
Thank you! ❤️

Светлана Михалева 08.02.2021, 21:44:03

Good afternoon ))
Ohhh.... it was so dangerous for Den to meet Alice's father but it was good experience. The parents are always worried about kids, where are they, how are they?... Of cz teenagers must follow Dad's rules and stay in touch with cellphone on.
This is good idea to have a walk together to see Christmas light, to see how is snow falling down.
Thanks a lot.

Наталия Арчер 09.02.2021, 11:01:07

Thank you very much, Svetlana!
I think meeting Alice's mom would be much easier for Den. Mothers are usually more open to accepting that a seventeen y.o. girl is an adult. For dads is a little more difficult to understand it, usually. In my opinion ))
Let's see, if the parents got all the information they needed to relax. ))
Thank you, Svetlana!

Светлана Михалева 03.02.2021, 05:20:17

Good evening)) I had read all of it well till ''The book is not finished yet"
Thanks a lot you press a bottom to move me back to X-mas time again. I can smell and feel my favorite holiday! I like how do you descrube Alice's emotions, the 1st meet with Den, ha... she was jealous. So little by little she is falling in love.
Waiting for more ))))

You've made me happy with your opinion on my story. I needed someone to read the full version and tell me how it looks from their point of view. :)
I'm already writing the next part with a new wave of inspiration you gave me.
Thank you for that! ❤️❤️❤️

noveltealover 31.01.2021, 07:08:00

Hullo! I recently added this book to my library because the synopsis and title sounded so cute. :D Alice in Mapleland~ Hehe, I don't often find stories set in my country so it is refreshing to see! I just finished reading Ch 1 and I'm loving Alice as the narrator so far as she describes her family during Christmas time and how she feels about moving to a new country and starting over. I also always loved 'Alice in Wonderland' kind of tales so I'm curious if you'll be pulling inspiration to include in your story too. I will definitely continue reading when I can and hopefully share more thoughts in-depth later on as I read further. ^_^

Hey there! I love the care you've put into highlighting the little details. It is, what I believe, makes a book come to life and makes it truly special...
Given that English isn't your first language I don't believe that this should have been a particularly easy feat.

While the fact that you aren't a native speaker (or writer) does show a bit, with a few interruptions in flow (happens to the best of us, believe me :* ) and an odd word here and there , I think that is a skill quite simply that is acquired over time...So keep up the awesome work, the polishing will come over time. Can't wait to read more from you!!

Nyssa Quadros, Thank you very much, Nyssa! I changed the words, where is possible.

I didn't think you were too critical, I was asking for it. ))
So, thank you for your help! ❤️

dreamweaver 21.01.2021, 15:37:08

hi there....thanks for the few constructive comments you'd given to my work.
i love how you pay attention to smaller details in your write up that could give the reader a kind of picture of what's going on...keep that up---a true skill that a writer needs.
Just like you, English is not my mother tongue so, I can relate much with your difficulty. However, things can be inproved and we can edit now and then our own works paying attention to verb tenses and the use of proper conjunctions for a smooth flow of the story. Break a leg!
