Revive the Fantasy Faction Book Battles?
« on: July 11, 2018, 11:05:16 AM »
Hi all,
We started the Fantasy Faction Book Battles 3 years ago, and there was lots of good discussion and ideas and discoveries.

I'm thinking of reviving it (@Hedin seems to be busy rasing his girls :D), what do you think? Will we have enough people participating to make it worth?

We have done:
- Series
- Fantasy standalone
- Sci-Fi
- Main protagonist
- Antagonist
- Sidekick

What can we do now?
Repeat the 'Series' one, see if it changes much with the last 3 years publications?
New categories, which ones? Some ideas: 'world', "battle", "plot" or "event"...
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I have been summoned! I think we received nominations for secondary characters but I never got around to putting that together. My intention was to take all of the finalists for the character battles and have a contest for Best Character.

Other ideas I had before was that everyone would submit their favorite book cover (no special editions) and we would have a battle with that. Also toyed with the idea of favorite book period regardless if it's standalone or part of a series.
