Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

You're so brave Liz to ask Mr Farland why you got 4th place! Did you see David Farland's tip today? I think it's very relevant to your situation. Did the judges want vegan or BBQ?

Re: SOMETHING NEW THIS WAY COMES!

Wonderful! WoTF really is serious when they say that they want us to succeed as well as to write good stories.

At LTUE, Joni was handing out the writers hint booklet to those of us who pre-ordered volume 36. She emailed my copy. Be sure and get yours. Email her a copy of your receipt.

So, the pitch went well. I learned a lot from the experience and I recommend doing one to everyone. I only had my current short story to pitch, but Mr. Tony Daniel didn't seem to mind.

Re: I'm looking for a specific type of fantasy novel.

Mercedes Lackey has a series, The Bedlam Bard series, where fantasy worlds come into, mingle and threaten New York and San Francisco. My favorite is: "Spirits White As Lightning" which is the 5th book in the series. Not for children! Adults only.

Basically, the bio exists for you to tell the readers who you are so they can form a connection of sorts with you as a writer. Whoa! It blows my mind that I will have readers interested in who I am.
