A belated welcome aboard to Holly, Arthur, Jeremy, and Salvanir! I would've welcomed you earlier, but you arrived during long, arduous exile. I shall endeavor to make amends.

Hi everyone. After submitting to Q2 and stalking the Q1 29 board for a month, I figured it's time to be a part of the conversation. Also, now that finalists have been announced for Q1, Q2's bound to heat up to tepid in the next few months.

Welcome, Crom! You most likely are. As far as we know, nobody has gotten Q2 responses. We've been eagerly awaiting the final list for Q1. Come on down to the Q2 thread and commiserate, jabber about whatever, or just hang out. Glad you could join us!

I'm not familiar with Conan, unfortunately. Was Crom a character?

Apparently Conan worships Crom, but usually just uses his deity's name for swearing. wotf011

In the Schwarzenegger films (I'll admit, I've never read the books), Crom was Conan's god. A particularly humorless, disinterested god who figured if you weren't strong enough to take care of yourself, why the heck should he?

Crom was the fictional deity created by Robert E. Howard for the Conan novels.

My first submission is in Q2. I figured it's time to join the fun.

Holly Heisey wrote:Howdy! I'm Holly. I'm one of the 1st Quarter finalists (I'm still trying to wrap my head around that!), and got generous invites to come join the fun here, so I'm here. :) I write a general smattering across scifi and fantasy, typically ending somewhere in between. I do art and design, too, and play a handful of acceptable and obscure musical instruments....

Anyhow, saying hi and looking forward to getting to know you all.



Don't think I said welcome and Congrats to you Holly.

Not that I can recall or find anyway--which may not mean much. :)

Anyway sounds like you're on your way .
