So it seems like another year has passed by in the blink of an eye. 2010, a year from our future is now the past, immutable in the frozen time. Onwards into a second decade at this wonderful site, to those still with us and the many who have joined - have a good one
Hello, I am currently writing my first novel with my best friend. We are both talented and think along the same track, we hardly ever disagree on the story or anything for that matter. Our ideas are very similar for the book. I was just wondering if anyone else has written with a partner and what some of the pros and cons may be, also just want to hear about your experiences and what you guys think about it.
It's been over a month since I last put something on here, not sure why, must have been busy. I really want to post a story onto the story part of this site, but for some reason I have not got round to it. Hmm, perhaps it is time to get on with things!
As my first post, i would like to have a bit of a whinge about the plaudits given to certain books. I may just be impatient, but every time i pick up an 'epic' fantasy like George R. R. Martin's or R. A. Salvatore's, I launch into it full of optimism. I then proceed to launch myself back out five minutes later. I know it's a question of taste, but i don't see why books like these receive all the accolades. They may well plot storylines and depict countries on a massive scale, but this makes the

New to the world of blogs, please be patient.
I am trying to remember the name of a series of books I read in the late 80's by a woman author. There were two main characters a man and a woman. The story is told by him about her. It is set in what would best be discribed as the dark ages. He is the bastard son of some Earl or Duke or something and when his half brother attacks him he kills the brother. For punishment the father sends him away for a year to be come a servant, something

I'd like to share a new fantasy book title I've read recently, Rider: Spirals of Destiny. It is the first book in an upcoming trilogy by Jim Bernheimer:
The story of me finding this book is pretty interesting. A while ago I was hooked on Harry Potter fanfiction and one author nicknamed jbern had written some amazing fics. Turns out he published his own books as well, so I gave them a try.
So... Rider: Spirals of Destiny is a book

Recently, Smashwords, the largest distributor of independent eBooks, announced they had renegotiated their contracts with Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and Sony to follow the agency model instead of the wholesale model. When Amazon launched the Kindle a few years ago, they used the wholesale model which meant the publisher sold the book at a discount to Amazon, then Amazon would sell that book for whatever price they chose to consumers, usually at a loss. When Apple launched their iPad, they popularized
DAMON DANE'S RAGNAROK
Here ended the Book of Endings, the final book in the epic that was the Holy Tome.
Filled with a sense of foreboding, Gothia raised his eyes and looked at Stargard, haunted by a fear that they were standing on the brink of an apocalyptic cataclysm, and that a horrifying darkness would soon sweep down over them all.

Another night, another blanket
Early morning, because it really can be the best time of the day
Even the reindeer can't get out
If you compare with the same shot from yesterday you'll see how much more we got
Work closed, had to drive home in this.

Think they'll trade cars for huskies?
Trees with snow on are mesmirising to look at.

I hear Republicans constantly complaining about the entitlements that our government has created for our citizens ruining America. They state their desire to cut these programs. My answer is that I will be willing to give up my entitlement when they are willing to give up theirs.
The GOP talks very loudly about unemployment, social security, and Medicare, but you hardly hear anything about golden parachutes or bonus payouts whether the company succeeds or fails. They are all
Why is it that every time I try to print something, it always. Always. ALWAYS. Involves rebooting the damn computer, failing twice to purge the thing that 'won't print' from the printer which somehow doesn't disappear unless you shut down the computer (restart is technically the same thing, yet it doesn't work) and then, after all that, the original thing prints?
Why is that?
