  1. I am indulged

    by , December 26th, 2010 at 06:56 AM (Comic relief)
    Everyone I know drifts between amused and condescending about my passion for comics but it does prove useful at Christmas time for them (and me!!! )

  2. New year's resolution

    Christmas rolls around again, and brings with it roughly the halfway point of my school holidays. I do hate to be unhappy on this day, but i can't escape a small feeling of guilt at having written barely anything so far in my time off. However, there is a solution for any guilt felt at this time: the new year's resolution. If anyone has tips to get my creative juices flowing, they will be extremely well-received. Merry Christmas!

  4. Writing with a partner/co-author

    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.

    Thanks, TTmiles

  5. Has it really been a month since I last visited?

    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!

  6. A small complaint

    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 ...

  8. 80's SF/F book/series.

    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 ...

  9. Rider: Spirals of Destiny

    by , December 21st, 2010 at 10:53 AM (Fantasy Stuff)
    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 ...

  12. Is the agency model good for consumers and publishers?

    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.

    ‘For good or for ill, you and I have been born into the Dark Ages,’ Stargard said, ‘the Third Age, ...
