But we are fortunate to have secured the talents of Lynn Norris.

Someone else suggested to me "David Tennant or bust." Man, the book we could have produced with budgets like that. ;)

Although I've gotta say, I think we produced a pretty darn cool book anyway.

So I've not been keeping up with the whole writing-as-a-hobby thing 'cause my doctorate's been draining me dry.

Hope to get back to it eventually!

Just wanted to comment on the character of Tommy Shelby which Karliene sings about in the youtube link below. It made me realise how many of my favourite characters are broken people who get up to act anyway. I found it a surprisingly helpful way to think of my own created characters too. (Also Kaladin, of course).

Heh, so here's a bit of a squee moment. If you want to read me taking about my experiences with Reading Excuses, flowing into the Distant Gardens anthology (thanks to @Mandamon for setting this up, and endorsing the topic), there is a link on Writing Excuses to Mary Robinette's site and My Favourite Bit...(squee).

Thank you :)

One of the most satisfying things about the project is how much of a collaborative team effort it was. Immensely satisfying.

Hi!! 

I'm back (I think), after a rather  long hiatus. After months of revising on deadlines for various things that kept me away from here at times, and some major anxiety issues, I got very burnt out and had to take a break from all things writing.  But I think I'm getting back on my feet now in terms of writing and mental health. 

I published a book last month--Earth Reclaimed! Some of you read my opening chapters a while back when I was working on developmental edits. If you want to read the whole book, here is a link to places you can buy it: https://books2read.com/earthreclaimed

I drafted a brand new novel for NaNoWriMo (it isa terrible draft, but it exists). 

And now I'm working on some short fiction while I decide what to revise next. 

How have you all been?

Wow, that cover looks gorgeous

Great to have you back! Its been pretty quiet. I think several regulars have been on a break from the forum. 

I also wrote 50,000 words of something for NaNoWriMo. I hesitate to even call it a draft zero, but it's better than a blank page right? :-)

Looking foreward to your next sub!

List cleanup is done! As always, if anyone finds I've removed them in error, or if you're returning to the forums after a while and just want to be re-added, let me know :)
