I'm new here and just wanted to say hullo. I keep notes of whatever it is I'm up to in various places - see the links below.
If you're so inclined, I am currently researching Joan of Arc for the fantasy/sf/spec book I'm writing, and there is a poll at my Word Press blog where you can cast your vote for your favourite onscreen Joan.
I don't know how relevant this is to everybody so I'll delete this post if it's not nessecery, but Stuart Hill - The aurthor of the icemark chronicles - is planning a fantasy book based on the Arthurian legend, where he's decided to write Arthur and Merlin as the "bad" guys. Met him again on Wednesday, lol. Signed my third book as well! Leave a comment if you want to know more or have any questions.
Name:Georgina Age: 14 Favorite fantasy author: Stuart Hill, I met him and he signed my copy, really nice guy! Favorite fantasy novel: The cry of the Icemark and many, many more Favorite fantasy creature: Fairies (used to live next to the "Fairy Glen" in Lancaster) ...and share a random something: I've been writing since I was four, and fantasy is something I like to experiment with. Currantly trying to write a novel called "Merlin's Legacy" although the title may change, and when I say I'm writing a novel - you can be sure I'll never finish it.
Name:Ila Age:25 Favorite fantasy author: This is tough, I have many depending on my mood. Martin Millar, Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint. I recently discovered Holly Black (took me long enough) and Cassandra Clare and got hooked. This list can go on... Favorite fantasy novel: The Good Faeries of New York by Martin Millar. Favorite fantasy creature: Tree Sprites or Gnomes. ...and share a random something: I'm a Canadian currently working on starting a Fantasy and Graphic Novel Publishing Company based out of Toronto. I'm in the process of being certified in Book Publishing and write fantasy on the side.
Hello all, I'm new, so I thought I'd introduce myself.
Name: Frost Age: 19 favorite fantasy author: Jane Lindskold, Anne Rice, and do Poe and Lovecraft count? favorite fantasy novel: If I have to chose just one, probably Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but I've read it about eight times. favorite fantasy creature: Probably any sort of shapeshifter. ...and share a random something: I create all of the races (aside from human) and most of the [fantasy] creatures I use in my work, which is why I don't have a favourite among the already established.
So that's a little about me. I'm relatively new to this. I've only been writing for about eight years, so I'm still learning. Of course, we're all still learning no matter how long we've been doing this. Blessed be, Frost
Oh how I dread editing, in my eyes it is such a time consuming part when you're all excited about having you're story finished. But alas it is an essential thing.
So if you have not guess by that pretty little sentence there, that I am in the editing stage, for my story that I'm planning on sending out to agents and hopefully getting one but who knows. Anyways does anyone have any tips on editing? Like what to you look for first when you edit? What are you're editing strategies.
See I'm going through this little thing I call Editing dread, and it is much like writers block, in some ways. So I could really use advise and strategies to editing. thanks x
I will be having my next booksigning event for Blood of the Dark Moon, the first dark fantasy/vampire/paranormal erotic romance book in the Dark Moon series at Mass Morgue 2008 on Oct 26th at 7:30pm.
Out-of-print copies of my book which my original publisher had sent me exist in limited quantities, so if you're local to Cambridge, MA or have a chance at being there be sure to stop by!
If you enjoy dark fantasy, supernatural romance, vampires, and vampire erotica as well as books with pagan, occult, magick, and BDSM themes, you may be interested in reading Blood of the Dark Moon. More information about the book is here: http://www.adriannebrennan.com/botdm.html

favorite fantasy author: I've got a few ^_^ J.K.Rowling, Christopher Paolini, Stephenie Meyer, Melissa Marr, C.S.Lewis, I have more but those are off the top of my head.
favorite fantasy novel: Dude this is like way too hard to answer I got so many...Flight of the dragon Kyn, Twilight Saga, Inheritance sequence, Harry Potter series, Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Wicked Lovely, many others as well, again these are off the top of my head. favorite fantasy creature: Dragons oh wait no Gryphons( or is it griffons?). Umm thats wrong again, Dragons are my most favourite followed closely by Griffons(Gryphons)
...and share a random something: My mom read Harry Potter to me when I was young, then Lion the witch and the wardrobe, and since a very young age I have been hooked on fantasy, and at a young age I decided to become a writer and I've stuck with that all my life.
