I'm moving this to the small press section.

(Who says I don't have a sense of humour!)

OVERLORD! That is sorta funny, but.....  Dont hide my responses from the people who attacked my thread. See how many hits it got in two minutes at the main heading? thats because its interesting.  

I am @BookReTweeter on twitter and a founding member of the Independent Authors Network too, so I do more for self pubbed/small press authors than most of you. Dont think they'll turn against me. I am a one of their Champions. Pay attention.

I wasn't going to respond to this again, but now it's just getting silly. None of us were attacking your thread, we merely pointed out that you appeared to have missed a point that is rather obvious to the rest of us, and that this should not be a public argument. Please stop.

Also please stop bragging about groups you're part of as though that makes what you're doing ok; it just makes you come across as arrogant, and is really not helping your cause.

Re: How did you Choose your Nickname?
Alright, hope no one minds I am resurrecting a dead thread here  :)

I always use gender neutral or ambiguous ids when I post to tech forums, force of habit I thought about doing that here as well, but decided it really didnt matter. I still didnt want to use my real name, it's boring if for no other reason. So, trying to come up with something, I was thinking through characters I like ... decided to go with Arry, Arya's alias when she was traveling as a boy with the Night's Watch, figured it was suiting. I probably would have preferred an adult character, but I liked using the alias instead of the real name and had to pick something. ... and I absolutely love Arya's character. I would love a series of books with her as the main character as an adult.... but I will settle with just waiting for the last two books of ASoIaF

I love that you gave us a huge reason, but, and I'm sure I speak for a few of us, I only ever hear Hagrid when I see it! :D

Mine is what my name got shortened to, after my mother told me I was to go by Laura because they couldn't shorten it...

Re: Whats the most you've ever spent on a book? you folks are mad! I buy books to read, and yeah, it's fun getting them signed, but I am not a collector. My books are bought to be read, and I wouldn't feel write owning one I'd spent a tattoo's worth of money on.

Re: Things you're just sick of.

People who knock on my door. Unless I know you or you are delivering me something, go away. You probably don't really want to see me in my pants anyway.

So yeah, people annoy me!

Saying that is just going to make more of them turn up, you never let the creepers know you're in your pants!

Re: You know you're a writer when...
you know you are a writer when people pay you for your work.

If you write only to get paid, you're going to spend a long time disappointed.

You know you're a writer when you find stuff written all up your arm from committee meetings that had nothing to do with what was discussed in said meeting, you just didn't want to put it in your meeting notes in case you never see it again.

Re: The King's Paws Dear gods, is this place still going? Have you got a better barman than in the old days?

Re: The King's Paws It may be the half bottle of wine I've just skulled, but now I really really miss the old crew.

And you named it!

Re: How much did you write today? Every word is one more word closer to the end.

There are all sorts of horrible clich├ęs I could use, but I'll spare you ;)

Re: Violence in fantasy It's an interesting topic, because different people have different levels of tolerance, informed by their own life experiences etc.

I think you can have a high level of violence as long as it is not entirely gratuitous, but then you run the risk of your writing becoming dull, because it loses the ability to shock, or the reader no longer cares that any character could be in danger at any given time. That's the thing that makes violence effective: when it toys with the reader's emotions.
