Re: Say Hi, I'm new thread Hi, I'm RJ Barker, also with a debut out this year, called Age of Assassins through Orbit, and Anna Stephens said if I didn't come here she would steal my lunch money. Actual true fact.

Re: Say Hi, I'm new thread I really feel for self published authors, I can't imagine anything harder than trying to get your book noticed among the thousands that come out (one of the reasons it's never appealed to me, also: laziness). I think those sort of 'drive by' postings come out of the sort of unscrupulous advice that tells you it's a numbers game, when it's not really, I think it's probably a lot subtler (and mysterious, to me anyway).

On the other hand, if you're a bit shy it's probably quite hard to walk into a forum and just post stuff, easier to squeak in and I suspect some people hope they'll be dragged into conversation that way. Luckily, I am not shy, I put this down to my massive hair.

Re: Say Hi, I'm new thread Hi Yopla, as Jmack says, Dead, But Dreaming (although I once got a random email that asked me why I was dead but drumming that still amuses me). It's a reference to Fields of The Nephilim who are in turn referencing H.P. Lovecraft. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQmPEUJOhTQ So Goth, much woe.) It should really be RJ Barker as I'm, apparently, a professional author now, but I must have signed up a long time ago and there doesn't appear to be a way to change it.

I would never steal Anna's lunch, she may pull my hair. I don't generally even eat lunch to be honest so it wasn't really that much of a threat.  Duped again.

Re: Say Hi, I'm new thread You absolute diamond. Also, this little thread has just become a little bit confusing to anyone who's not read it.  A little joy to savour.
