Armand Mike- you mentioned that you are unpublished. What do you write?


Mike (the Paladin) I'll try not to bend your ear too much...

For years I've come up with and sketched out fantasy stories and never thought about getting published. Then I ended up disabled so I had more time to write. My wife's health was never real good and a couple of years after I went off work she had the first of a series of strokes. I spent the next 2 years caring for her.

She passed away 2 years ago. Since then I've gotten work done on several novels. These are mostly fantasy though I have an outline for a science fiction and some research done on a nonfiction.

Of the fantasies I have a first draft done on 2 and a couple more more than half done. There's one I want to complete first and then get back to the others in rewrites.

So...it's to late to say in short, I hope to finish that one and start a search for an agent this year.

Kernos I still think I'm looking forward to reading this book, which is in some pile somewhere. I got it because of its description. We shall see.

Armand Mike- if you ever want a reader for your novels, feel free to send it my way!


Mike (the Paladin) Thanks, I'll consider it. My daughter is my only proof/beta reader. It's surprising how many typos you can read over repeatedly.

Tessa These remind me of the Lemony Snicket books for the reasons you describe--weirdness without characterization.
