Re: How many books do you read per week (or month)?

It depends. Usually 3-4, but if I'm in a slump or in a writing frenzy, then it might only be 1 a week. It also depends on the size of the book too. the Count of Monte Cristo is going to take significantly longer than say the Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I can finish in a couple of hours, where...

Re: Characters Who Should Have Died

I'm not going to lie, I was a little happy to see Katniss on the list. I was excited when the first book was told in present tense. I thought it'd be more powerful if she died. It would have been more powerful. I don't think I've ever seen a book written in the present tense where the MC died. I ha...

Re: Of the characters you've written, who is your favorite?

My favorite character would have to be Yo. He's proud, dramatic, flamboyant, vain, stubborn, hypocritical, contradictory, and fiercely loyal. He has a habit of stirring up trouble, and is prone to fits of jealousy. He also loves to wallow in his own sorrow, and is easily excitable. He has manic tend...

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

I noticed that the original post disappeared too. Weird. And if we could include video games.... Cloud Yes. Though i have to say, Squall in Kingdom Hearts, when he's voiced by David Boreanaz? Yeah...that's pretty awesome. But for me, in video games, it's Ezio Auditore. Wait, wait...in Kingdom Heart...

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

I think you mean manga... I've never read anime! But I think we should get Cookie over here. I have a feeling the two of you could have *quite* the conversation about anime characters! Lol. I've actually been trying to think of who I consider the most handsome, since you know there are lots. So, I'l...

Re: Condensing Your Pitch

All. The. Time. there is so much going on in my book, I never know where to begin. I usually end up saying: "It's about love, hate, war, vengeance, jealousy. You know, the usual." that way I don't have to go into specifics, or explain why I write fantasy and sci-fi. Although, I've been lucky not to ...
