John Cicero | 1 comments Hi Everyone,

My name is John Cicero and I am a fantasy/adventure author. My passion for writing is driven from the joy I receive from reading my stories to my children.

Watching the expressions on their faces as I take them on a journey through the magical pages of my imagination is what drives me to find the time to write.

My recently released novels are in the Rainbow's Shadow Trilogy. They are Rainbow’s Shadow and the Tablets of Fate and Rainbow’s Shadow and the Covenant of Wisdom.

As a passionate writer in Northeast, Ohio I have been fortunate to hit the Best Sellers list with 'Tablets of Fate' and am on track currently with the 'Covenant of Wisdom'.

The final novel in my trilogy is Rainbow’s Shadow and the Other Side of Paradise which is currently in development.

If you have a moment check out my website and Rainbow's Shadow Trilogy today at... www.RainbowsShadow.com

Take care, John

Shawn (stk_kreations) Hello everyone,

I have been a member for a little while now, but had never introduced myself, so here it goes.

My name is Shawn, I am a graphic designer in Meridian, MS and I absolutely love the Fantasy genre. I first started reading fantasy in my 'tween' years––being pulled into the rich mind of R.A. Salvatore was like nothing I had experienced in a book before. After reading all of the Drizzt novels––that were out at the time––I stumbled upon the dark and gritty world of Warhammer with William King's "Trollslayer".

When I was finally able to start ordering books from Amazon––after discovering the internet––it was like a whole new world opened up for me. I realized there were tons of great books and authors out there that I never got to see in the local Books-a-Million.

Since then, my wish list is an ever growing one, and I wish I had room for more bookshelves. haha

As a side note: if anyone has any information to breaking into the book biz as a designer––or anything really––let me know. I am currently a graphic designer for a newspaper, but I believe my dream job would be to work for a book publisher. I don't even care if it wasn't designing, just something to do with the publishing process. Only problem is there are no publishing companies around where I live. :(

Okay, well I think I've talked long enough––everyone should know enough about me now haha.

Greetings all,

My name is Rich and for some years have been a Technical Writer (along with a whole bunch of other things). I decided to publish my first science fiction novel, which combines my love of the genre along with my fascination for gadgets and the ramifications of past decisions made in history. When I write, I write to be exciting and entertain, but also to try to get people to take a look at and think about our past so that they don't make the same mistakes in the future. But I guess that's a lot of wishful thinking on my part.

Greetings all,
I am a brand new author on Goodreads. My first fantasy novel has just been published. My first review on Amazon is in and the reader could not put it down. My story will keep you guessing about what will happen next. My cast of characters includes wizards, wolves, demons, a shape-shifter, and a young girl who intimidates all of them.

Kriss Perras (kriss-perras) | 4 comments Hi All,

I am Kriss Perras Running Waters. I have loved science fiction since I was little. I grew up on the original Star Trek when it first came out, because my Dad was a Star Trek fan. We watched each episode. (I am 44 years old). I'm here to see what people are interested in reading.

I currently own the independent story development and film production company Running Waters Productions. I am the previous Publisher and Editor of Malibu Arts Journal and PCH Press (Malibu's daily newspaper) and am a 2002 member of the prestigious American National Honor Society Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges. 300 Nights marks my first novel in a saga of four science fiction books: 300 Nights, Fard Ayn, Exile and Holo. I am not new to the industry. I previously worked for a well-known development firm in Hollywood where I learned the craft of story development, a trade I enjoy and find highly gratifying. So I am a screenwriter, author and director. Plus I love photography. I had the privildge of being a showcased artist on the CMTV Chanel 14 Artists Showcase in my area for photographers. I also love poetry.

Again nice to meet everyone,
Kriss Perras Running Waters

How many people try to get you to film their stories? I imagine there's some kind of process in place for that sort of thing.

I responded to your previous advert . Many thanks for your subsequent information for non-Indian writers. But since sending my MSS to Unicorn Books I heard nothing. That happened many months ago. It might be useful when you provide feedback to your publishers that it is possible to acknowledge with an automatic response.Otherwise the very authors you want to attract might go somewhere different.

Should I send in my next novel and wait for 90 day to pass, then another 90 days , then another 90 days,and so on. I think you get the picture. Authors wait long enough as it is. I know some have been waiting years in hope, and saying their prayers. Amen.

Hi Kriss
Star Trek, that's all good stuff.

Wondered if your company deals with 'coverage?' Is that part of your story development. Or are the stories written firstly by the directors and then considered for development? Book to film is always interesting.


message 14: by Kriss (last edited Nov 17, 2010 03:04PM) (new)

Kriss Perras (kriss-perras) | 4 comments Hi Cleveland and Marc,

Coverage is part of development, a big part. Coverage is part of the process that gets a story through a development meeting. There is a process in place to get coverage done for your own works, but most of the time, like with my company, you need to have your legal representation contact my legal representation for the protection of your stories and my company's stories. That is the industry channels everyone talks about. But there are some other ways to get it done too. If you search for writers groups or screenwriting coverage there are some folks out there that will do coverage. I however do not recommend sending out your story without some kind of legal representation to ensure your story remains yours.

Adaptations are fun and sometimes even more challenging than an original screenplay. The work is already written, so one the story is there, but two the literary part does not translate to the screenplay part, (e.g. descriptions, inner thoughts etc.) and sometimes the inner thoughts of a character are a major part of the story. So to translate that to only dialogue, sound or image for a screenplay is where the challenge takes place, and Voice Over rarely works anymore. So it is both fun and challenging, much the same as writing a book! :0)

To get a director to consider a story or book for development usually requires a working relationship with the director. So getting in first and then pitching the book adaptation or other story development idea to the director is usually how that goes, but there are so many ways to get a work noticed or in the hands of someone who can make it happen, that to say just one way works is very limiting to the receiver of the idea and grandiose in the part of the communicator, especially in Hollywood. Sometimes people know someone who is the assistant of a famous person who has the ear of that A lister, and that is how it can happen. Today with the invention of the Web, there are so many ways to get the idea developed, it takes a lot of work on the part of the writer to figure out which one is the best for that particular project.

So while there are some industry channels that can be used, which are generally the ones I would stick to for legal reasons, other ways do exist to get the work out of the literary world and onto the screen.

I hope I answered the questions. :0)

Very interesting. I've heard of film writers who have a terrible time with people sending them emails and they almost lose their jobs. It must be very hard to separate your life from your work, but how do you read a book without having it in the back of your mind that the author may some day sue you if anything you do bears the slightest resemblance to his story? I suppose he would have to prove some connectivity beyond the mere fact that his book was on sale where you are.

Hi Kriss
Thanks for your reply. You covered a lot of ground.
Marc: as far as I know a film writer will not write a screen play for another author unless it is clear who has the power to pass on permission to do so. I have a novel and that is blanketed with cover by ProtectRight , if I remember the name correctly, for ten years.
Connections do work in certain way but sometimes it can be impossible to approach or contact a family member depending on what they do.Easier if they contacted me.
However my cousin is CEO and owns a film company in the Middle East.She's a writer too and is interested in my work. But her company sticks to people and documentary work in Arabic.
I have a new friend who is a film writer. I might let her read my novel. I'd be interest to see what she makes of it. My poetry is said to be like that written by James Joyce. I've no idea what my prose is like except I done the William Falkner Award thing and been a finalist, and made my way into the top ten best sellers list with an anthology. So I can put two or more words together. But agents are not reading submissions at the moment it seems. They are after an elusive 'next harry Potter' or the equivalent. I guess that's life. Tough as always.
But we've picked up some interesting info in conversations on this group forum.
Best wishes

Ciara | 14 comments Happy holidays everyone. I'm not new to Goodreads but I am new to this thread so I'll intro myself. Thanks for getting this thread started.

First, I have three jobs. I teach art full time to high schoolers, I'm art director for a local magazine and I write novels.

I write sci-fi futuristic romance, paranormal time-travel romance and I've just recently had a fantasy romance released called the Keeper of Moon Haven. The fantasy takes place in Victorian England. I'm currently working on a sci-fi futuristic, Dragon Hunter, that releases in April 2011. I post all my first chapters on my website if anyone is interested. Ciara Gold
And when I'm not writing or working at my other jobs, I'm either reading or sailing.

Adam Moore (PerceptorPrime) | 2 comments Hello.

My name is Adam. I'm from the Queen City of Cincinnati, Ohio.

I'm new to goodreads and am branching out in this very welcoming community of authors and readers. I'm an artist and a writer. I haven't written anything you've heard of... yet. Mwah hah hah hahahaha... ahem. Anyway, my first novel isn't heavy with fantasy but if you're interested you can check out Seven Arrows. I'm a big fan of Philip Jose Farmer, H.P. Lovecraft, and Edgar Rice Burroughs but I'll read any yarn that captures my imagination and dares me to invest emotionally in the characters (I swear, I wasn't crying there was something in my eye as I finished reading The Monster Men.) I'm always looking to meet new people for new chats and new suggestions.


message 22: by Nikki (new)

Nikki (goodreadscomnikki_persley) | 1 comments Happy New Year everyone!

I’m not new to Goodreads, but I hardly ever post. One of my resolutions for 2011 is to be more involved, so here goes. A new year means a new beginning, and I’m beginning a new dark fantasy series called The Godling Sagas. It has feuding deities, primeval demons, and a secret mystical society. Oh yeah, and a great war is coming! Awakened, the first book in the series is in revisions and the second book, Earthbound, is a work in progress.

I’m also the founder of http://www.DailyTablet.net, a brand new website and free daily email for writers. It’s still a work in progress too, but it’s growing everyday. Check it out. All comments are welcome.

Happy writing, and good reads too!

Hello everyone!

I'm a young adult fantasy/sci-fi author. "Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes" is my first novel, and tells the story of two seemingly ordinary brother-and-sister twins whose lives change drastically when they're recruited to seal a dimensional hole that allows evil aliens to travel to Earth. It's a fun read, so please check it out! I also have a blog dedicated to the novel (http://shelbyandshaunakitt.blogspot.com/) and to the adventures of Shelby and Shauna Kitt.

Happy to meet you all!

I don't like having 'rules' for writing since they seem to bind me to particular storylines, so my only rule is only to write if i feel like it, otherwise it comes out rubbish, the advice i follow from an author; Joe Craig, it is "The first draft is always 'rubbish'" though it sounds discouraging and doesn't apply to everyone, i've found it applies to me for every one of my works. Anyway, I hope to have a good time here and please be sure to notify me if I'm being a pain in the arse :)

Joe Vadalma (JoeVadalma) | 25 comments Daniel, You may have a problem. The Warhammer 40000 universe is probably copyrighted by the game company. You cannot legally set your novel in it. You may get away with it if you call it something else, but you must change everything, names of character, places, etc. Also, you say you don't follow rules, but if you hope to ever get published, there are at least three you must follow: 1. use good English grammar, 2. check you spelling, and 3. follow the format guidelines of the publisher you submit to.

Ivis Davis (ivisbodavis) | 4 comments Hello Authorlings!
.
My name is Ivis Bo Davis. I am a Christian man and an old-fashioned realistic science fiction writer... However, I write YA novels where there's romance but no sex, no foul language, and violence enough to keep the story fast-paced... but not gory. Interestingly enough... though my characters are mostly teens, the gray-beards love my stories... go figure.
.
My stories are what I consider a 'future history' series. I want to capitalize on the excitement of realism... while preserving the example of good moral character. Astronomers are particularly enamored with my stories.
.
I am the author of the XTERRA Series: currently consisting of two novels - Conspiracy and Escape - out of a projected 5 books. I have two additional books in the series nearly finished: Dark Matter and Ocean's Revenge - the XTERRA Prequel... which was supposed to come LAST... but the story line is so compelling that I just had to continue writing it.
.
If you would like to see some of my writing, you are invited to investigate my website (Currently under redesign) but still available at http://www.ivisbodavis.com. You can download 2/3 of each of my published novels with a single click of your mouse.
.
Robert Heinlein is my favorite author. Like Mr. Heinlein, I'm writing what I consider to be a 'future history' series. I think the history of man has considerable romance and adventure, and the future promises to hold a great deal more as we consider the possibility of interstellar exploration and colonization.
.
The technologies I employ are based on the extreme edge of current physics, and my characters have developed some devices that permit the series to be extended indefinitely...
.
Comments are welcome.

Ardy Ardy (ardybooks) | 16 comments Hi. I realized I've been here a while and never properply introduced myself. I too am a Christian, though ironically I spend most of my time at good reads in the Horror Affionados group. I have published three novels and four short stories and novellas at smashwords.com. I write mostly horror and fantasy with some sci-fi. Some of my work can be considered "Christian" though most of it is not. My Christian fantasy novel Dawn is Coming is doing pretty well so far, as is my vampire novel Akeldama: The Field of Blood. You can check out my work at https://www.smashwords.com/profile/vi... or at other ebook retailers like Barnes and Noble, ITunes, and Sony Ereader. To any authors out there looking for a good outlet for their work, I strongly suggest smashwords.com.
Looking forwards to hearing from other authors and readers of the stuff I like to read and write.
