D.M. Andrews (author) Andrews (DMAndrews) | 1551 comments Well, it might have more appeal and could be category placed...thus leading to more exposure to the participants...

Would there be enough authors to populate a few categories?

Yes, it'd have to be renamed :)

Imagine - a year from now - people on Amazon seeking out the latest "GoodReads Anthology Winter 2013 - Thrillers", "GoodReads Anthology Winter 2013 - Young Adult", "GoodReads Anthology Winter 2013 - Romance"

...

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments No WE're the best for the naughty stuff !


message 454: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments It would be lovely if we could generate that much material. I actually had to crack the whip (there are still people with lash marks and nightmares!) to get just over 30,000 words - novella sized.

If there's enough material I'd love to see it happen.

We've siold 95 copies to date by the way. Not long till the 100 book party!

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments Awesome !

Not sure I want to get into the next one now Ignite seeing how you treat the writers! Mind you after you've edited my piece of rubbish there'll probably only be two words left: THE END


message 456: by Darren (new)

Darren Humphries (Darrenhf) | 6638 comments The End?

Lorraine, I find the plot hard to follow and the characterisation was a little weak. Liked the length though. :-)


message 457: by Lorraine (new)

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments Well 1 star is better than none !


message 458: by Mark (new)

Mark Faulkner (MarkRFaulkner) | 462 comments I'd happily write something for it. I have a few recepies too.


message 459: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments Looks like we're up for Book 2 then?
I really think that towards the end of the year again will be best. What do others think? If we start collecting material around September (I have some already) we can see if there's enough to break into categories or if it's just enough for a single volume.

PS Lorraine, I can put you in the comfy chair and just poke you with a cushion of you prefer!

Recepies - recipes for pies?


message 461: by Lorraine (new)

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments Yea but then everyone will be jealous Ignite, can't have preferred treatment to everybody else.... I'll endure the whip and the taunting Ignite, I can take it !

I can do pies. I make a lot of wines and liquers and could throw some of those in the mix.


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4697 comments A genre based book sounds great but as ignite says it was a struggle to get contributions for book one. Perhaps as we get bigger it will get easier. For now it is just nice to be able to publish a mix from all our members (authors and readers).


message 464: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments Hear the words of our Illustrious Leader (and I WILL be persecuting you for another contribution!)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments Louise-Lesley gave us our 9th review yesterday too - another 5* - ta chuck! We have 2 x 4* and 7 x 5*. Good little book eh?

David Wailing | 834 comments A new Gallimaufrey?!

Can I play, please?

I second that please !


message 469: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments Oh yes! Anyone can play! (As long as you let me win!)
I have a few already and some more promised - Mel Comley, Mark Faulkner and now David. I must trawl back through the thread and see if anyone else has volunteered. Going to be good eh? My whip will be redundant.


message 470: by Kath (new)

Kath | 1965 comments well... with my poems in it (assuming they make the cut) it really can't be anything more than wonderful !


message 471: by Lorraine (new)

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments Maybe you should do a new thread dedicated to the planning of number two Gallimaufrey :)


message 472: by David (new)

David Wailing | 834 comments Oh goody-goody!!! I get to hang out with the cool kids!

I've been bitten by the short story bug lately, both reading and writing, so I'd love to contribute a little tale.

Hope "our" story will not be a short one ;)

This is a good idea - it would be great to track development of it, know when deadlines are, find out what other people are doing for it, etc.

Lorraine, our saga will last a lifetime! :-)


message 475: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments I think I twisted Harry (Tom Fleck ) Nicholson's arm for a poem. Well, I KNOW I twisted it - I'm fairly sure he said yes!

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments David wrote: "Lorraine, our saga will last a lifetime! :-) "

GOOD, because once I love, I love forever and ever, body heart and soul !

Ignite, another idea... in one of Simon's email updates to all the members, maybe he could mention that you are on the lookout for some more material for the next Gallimaufrey :) That way the people that don't follow this thread would know of it too :)


message 477: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments That's an excellent idea Lorraine. Maybe come the summer when everyone's feeling happy and creative?


message 478: by Lorraine (new)

Lorraine Versini (LorraineVersini) | 8999 comments Yea, that'll give them enough time to come up with something hopefully... unless they're like me in which case they'd better start writing right now !


message 479: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments If I may push an idea forward, if there is a new one, Jenny must be bullied into writing several more short stories.

*nods*

Patti (baconater) (Goldengreene) | 58364 comments One at the very least, Elle.

If her mum can't do it, no-one can - I'll pass on your Message!

Jenny (Border Dweller) | 210 comments I can now exclusively reveal that I've started a new story. It doesn't really fit a genre, nor am I certain that it's the sort of story I should showto my mother :-o But nonetheless I feel it is destined for the new collection if you'd like it.

Edit: This is mainly of note because it will be my first new story in over 10 years.


message 483: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments You may think your mother is a prude Jenny - people here know otherwise!
I look forward to reading it!


message 484: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments Yay!!

Philip (sarah) Willis | 5175 comments Looking forward to reading it Jenny,I so enjoyed your story in The group book.(sorry can't get the link)Has the book been saved?

I'm so pleased you are writing! You truly have talent, Jenny.

Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4697 comments A good excuse to put the link to it again though.....

Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4697 comments I wonder if Patti will be asking a question about it in the quiz?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/A-Goodreads-G...


message 490: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments Who knows. I gave her some of the questions but to carry it on for a month (and update it with newer authors) she has taken it and made it her own - in her own way! :)


message 491: by Patti (baconater) (new)

Patti (baconater) (Goldengreene) | 58364 comments Erg. I went looking for the message you sent me ages ago, Ignite.

Couldn't find it. I either deleted it or it's lost in my thousands of PMs.

I've done all the questions from scratch, using a complicated algorithm to keep it fair.


message 492: by Simon (Highwayman) (last edited Jan 30, 2012 05:36AM) (new)

Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4697 comments Ah yes Patti, I know all about complex algorithms....

We had the "Dotty choosing a cat biscuit on top of a name" algorithm followed by the "guess the number of jelly beans" algorithm ...

Stephen Hawkins eat your heart out!


message 493: by Patti (baconater) (new)

Patti (baconater) (Goldengreene) | 58364 comments Oh my algorithm is much more clever and complicated than those.

It involved cockroaches and banana plants.


message 494: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments Book has a cover again!


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4697 comments Who stole our cover?


message 496: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments Amazon stole it!

Along with like, loads others. Been taking a break going through them again. Saw that somehow lots of new random editions been added too so loads of doubles to delete. Cleaning up Shaun Jeffrey books atm! I just did them last week so a slight FU to Amazon.


message 497: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 22419 comments I still have the original questions but as they were mnore an idea than questions, you algorithms will do fine. (I got algorithm, I got music,...)


message 498: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments You gonna have to upload your own Karl as I can't find a decent enough sized one to upload for you!


message 499: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments If you edit your book details, there should be an option at the side to let you upload the book cover!


message 500: by Elle (new)

Elle (Louiselesley) | 7914 comments You haven't combined your normal profile with your authors profile, I forgot!

Hm.. Is there anywhere on the web with a full size picture of the covers?
