About this author

I am G. K. Masterson and I grew up in Mississippi. Yes, Mississippi. And before you start on with whether or not I’m impressed by all this electricity and amazement that I am literate, let me just say a few things: William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Eudora Welty, and John freaking Grisham. The defense rests.

I have been writing since I could hold a pencil but really only began working on novels within the last few years. I write primarily for my own enjoyment but I wouldn’t mind making a little money off the endeavor either. I work mostly in swords’n'sorcery style fantasy but am planning two general fiction novels (one urban fantasy, one general to be specific) as well as a sci-fi series.

If you’re interested in finding out more about my n

I have not been this sucker-punched since the first time I watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. If I were anymore floored, you could put carpeting on me. So, all I have to say is…

Well done, guys. Very, very well done. I haven’t been this emotionally traumatized over the death of a fictional character in a while. I thought the death of Sturm Brightblade in Dragonlance Chronicles was harsh bu...

Daniel Kaine Well, when you add your book to the site, you literally only need a title, author and blurb. For example, I've got the second book in my series up so that anyone who likes the first can mark it as to-read. It's just a way of letting people see what the book is about and express an interest. And, it also acts as a kinda bookmark, so people don't completely forget about it months later.

message 5: by G.K.

G.K. Masterson I'm still waiting on my expiration/rejection letters from agents before I go ahead and post my stuff online. I figured I'd give it one last solid go and contacted 11 different agents last week. I already have one rejection.

The rest will probably say nothing so by Jan 1, I'll call it safe to forge ahead. I'm just trying to get myself set up and get accustomed to this so that I'm not a complete noob when it comes time to do it for real.

Daniel Kaine Oh, right... the link to add the book. Just search for any book using the search form at the top of the page. Then at the top and to the right is the manually add a book page.

Daniel Kaine I'd start with the groups tab at the top of the page. See if you can find a group that specialises in your genre. Most of them will have a discussion board where authors can create a post to add all their promotional stuff. And the introductions posts, I'd pop in those to say hi, say a little about yourself, like that you write and you're trying for publication.

I'd also add your book to the site. Can't remember where the add link is off the top of my head... and then you need to claim your author page. Once that's done, your book will show up on your profile so people can check it out easier. If you need help, just send me a message.

message 2: by G.K.

G.K. Masterson Yeah. I'm trying to figure out how I'm supposed to get in touch with other authors and get my stuff published here. Any tips?

Daniel Kaine Hey, you made a profile! *waves*
