How do you do?
« on: January 21, 2017, 01:38:24 PM »
Hi,

I write an online web serial (there's quite a big audience for fantasy stuff) and occasionally put out an ebook on Amazon. Big fan of reading fantasy although the movement towards grimdark has left me a bit meh, which has been surprising since I've always liked darker stuff like Elric.

I like staring at cool pictures of dragons more than's probably healthy. I really miss that old style of art (Michael Whelan, Frank Frazetta) that used to mark out fantasy book covers. Please no more hooded guy in shadow with the author's name three times the size of the book title, I beg you.

Also like reading manga and light novels, which tend to be fan translated and of varying quality but strangely addictive.

Have been a lurker for some time but hope to join in some conversations from now on.

regards,
moody

Welcome! I share your sentiments, and although the cover I'm working on does have a hooded guy, a book's not about the author imho, and even equal billing is slanted the wrong way.

That captcha was so hard to read!
