Title: Gotta Catch 'Em All: 'Fantasy-Faction in/on books'
Post by: Overlord on March 12, 2014, 04:26:31 PM
Hi guys,

Just a quick request for you all: If you spot Fantasy-Faction in / on a book could you please take a picture on your phone / digital camera and upload it here or e-mail it to me? (Marc.Aplin[at]Fantasy-Faction.com). We are trying to build a collection of them up and see who we are reaching :) I know we've been on a fair few this year, but hadn't thought to keep track until now (well... I had, but lost the little list I was writing  ::))

Pretty sure the copy of Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan that I spotted in the library today had a quote on the back cover.

You're on my amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fade-Black-Rojan-Dizon-Novels-ebook/dp/B0091LLQB6/ref=la_B008D0QMPG_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394657519&sr=1-1) page, if that helps?

Somehow I've been in four acknowledgements, and even been named as a character in a book! :O

Acknowledgements: Myke Cole, Sebastien De Castel, James Barclay & Mark Charan Newton. Character in Sarah Pinborough's book :)

I'll have to grab a copy of the hardback to photograph it, but Fantasy Faction's review of Heir to the North gets listed on the inside cover of High King's Vengeance -  'The beauty of this book, I think, is that it will work on two kinds of readers. Those of you who are just starting out on the marvellous journey that is fantasy will find a cracking adventure story, one that will encourage you to explore further in the genre. And those of you who have read every fantasy novel published since Tolkien will appreciate the way the book plays with your expectations.' Fantasy Faction

Congratulations! The day I get my words on a cover or inside a book I will be super happy and do a stupid dance!

I would LOVE to have Fantasy Faction on my book. The folks at Best Fantasy Books swear by it, but so far, I've had no luck getting anyone over here to even read it, even when I've offered it for free. It's frustrating, but I'm not a quitter.

Hi @abatch , are you on the fantasy faction Facebook ? That's where all the F-F staffers hang out or at the r/forum. there don't visit this forum. That's the folks who you need to interest to put slogan on the back of your book.

Some of us visit :)

You're best bet is to submit it to Marc A (Overlord on here)... and don't lose hope I've yet to get them to review any of mine! :)

I forgot that the Invisible Library Series has a FF quote on the back! I'll post a photo in the next days (hopefully).
