Hi, I'm another newbie and another indy author! This looks like a great forum. I'm doing some dabbling in fantasy forums, looking for a community of other writers and readers to be at home with. I like epic fantasy the best, RJ, Robin Hobb, GRRM, Tad Williams, Brandon Sanderson but I'll read just about anything. I also want to find other indy authors who write epic fantasy (and other kinds too) and share the trials and joys of writing/publishing.

Since I'm new to forums and they can be kind of overwhelming, I'd like to ask anyone who has time to respond, what do you find the most useful/engaging/fun about this forum (or forums in general)? Where is the best place to start conversing (ha ha, after this thread, that is).

Haha! You sound like you'll fit right in! Like Chill said, the Fantasy Book Discussion is a great place to start. However, if you just want to chat about random things with all us Factioneers, and just try to get to know everyone, I'd recommend "The King's Paws". It's a bookmarked thread (meaning it's in blue, at the top), and inside the "General Discussion" board, second from the bottom of the main index.

I hope you enjoy your stay!

Thanks for the welcome. I was pretty excited when I saw the book club was reading a book I already own. My TBR pile is rather large.  ;D

Howdy everyone, I'm Ryan

I've been coming up with ideas for things to write about for a while now, but I'm just starting to write them down. Hopefully you can expect to see me becoming more active on the forums, as well as submitting a few of my works.

Cool. Glad to have you Ryan.

Considering you're a writer, I would recommend heading on over to the Writer's Corner. Ask anything, even submit some of your work for the monthly writing competition. Or try to improve your stuff at the Work to be Critiqued Board.

Hope your enjoy your stay! :)

Hello. I'm a huge fan of fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. I'm also a poet and author. I'm looking to connect with other fantasy writers and chat about fandom.

Hi Alison! Glad you've found us, and you've definitely come to the right place!

Just ignore all the casual insanity that goes on. You'll get used to it eventually. ;)

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'll take casual insanity over formal insanity any day  :D

Another one who found this place via Twitter (which I joined a few days ago). Someone retweeted a FantasyFaction post, I read it, then more posts, clicked around and it went downhill from there.  :D

I'm an avid reader, history and travel blogger (who should update more often  ;) ) and writer, mostly of historical fiction involving Romans, but I also have a Fantasy Monster in the making.

Hi!

I've been following fantasy-faction for a year now. I've decided to join for convenience and to meet new people who have an interest in fantasy and sci-fi.
