Hi, my name is Frog, and I'm a fantasy fan.

I've loved fantasy books since I was in the sixth grade.  Now I'm in my mid-thirties.  By day, I'm a practicing attorney, by night I read and write fantasy.  My wife and I have our first novel published with Sky Warrior Books, and several short stories as well.  I'm happy to be here.

A book published is an achievement to be proud of, so congratulations!

I hope you find your stay enjoyable!

hey, im ja5p! found this website through google, and so far I'm excited to find what seems like endless recommendations of books to read.

Although lately I've become a UF/PR junkie (butcher, harrison, briggs, hunter, among others), it's cool to find fans who love the fantasy/scifi genre. I'm not as hardcore as ya'll, but maybe ya'll will sway me further down that path!

well that’s me spiel, later :)

Hi Frog! That sounds awesome. So you and your wife collaborate on your novels and stories? I happen to be writing with my husband too (granted, the ever-sweet the_hound there has doubted the authenticity of our marriage which sure makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside), he's under the name T. Trian here. Anyways, nice knowing there are other wife&husband writing teams around!

You know all other parties have put this incident behind them, yes? Stop bringing it up if you don't want to appear like silly little children and get yourselves in more trouble.

Oh, too early to joke about it, yes? It takes down to live down some hilarious things, sowwie  :'( (I posted it before we PMed about forum rules and stuff, I apologize)

EDIT: also, the situation was just too juicy so I couldn't help myself. We're all humans right with our flaws and all that ;)

Hi, Frog, and welcome!

It'd be fun to compare notes on how we write as couples and how having another person collaborate on joint stories affects the writing process.

thank you ever so much for the very warm welcome,fallen one and elfy. i have read some of the return of the reaper and have enjoyed it a lot, terrific writing!

i'm not being cheeky but to tell you the truth i haven't just felt comfortable posting my thoughts here yet because i've been reading a lot and the atmosphere has been just a little bit on the mental side. to be frank,i feel really uncomfortable when i see a clique of older members hassle newer members. no apologies given. the welcome some folks have gotten here have made me think if i say one wrong word, i'll have the whole bloody gang chewing me up. i'm telling you, if that happened to me, i'd just leave because i came here to find a nice community. being depressed it's very hard for me to connect with others and now i'm afraid even i'll be ridiculed for saying these things.okay, i said it, come what may.

Not cheeky at all.  It was a bit more complicated than that.  Let's just say there was a bit of a culture clash?  A good thread to start on is What Are You Currently Reading, and then look for your favourite authors on the author section or your favourite book on the Book Specific section.  And please join in with the Book Club, a great way to settle in.  Hope you can get past the mad week that just happened and enjoy your time here!
