    Upcoming Cover Art VII

    That looks uninspired. A chick with a sword against a brick wall.

    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    Spending 700 pages of Fitz suffering and suffering and suffering (to the point that it became blatant author manipulation of the reader) and then have the underlying conflict resolved offscreen in 2 pages? Bullshit.

    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    Really? It was the ending of the Assassin trilogy that turned me off from reading any more Hobb (that, and the overly emo reader manipulation).

    Official Blatant but Honest Self Promotion Thread

    Pretty spot-on list, thanks. I plan to try the traditional route first (mine for an agent) and if that proves unsuccessful, self-publish.

    Official Blatant but Honest Self Promotion Thread

    Thanks for creating the thread. I've looked at your sample at amazon because of it. Hopefully more of our board authors will pitch in. I've been working on a series / stand-alones for a long, long time, about a million and a half words in. Might make the jump to the agent query next year, and if that doesn't pan out, self publishing. If you don't mind, what are some of the pitfalls and promising marketing strategies you've encountered on the way?

    Goodkind XXVII: Welcome to the Yeard Reich

    "If you love ice cream and you can go downstairs to get it, it's not going to take much of your time, so its value is small. If the only ice cream is in France, and you decide to go there to get it, that means you really love ice cream because you are giving up a great deal of your life to go to France to get the ice cream." Good God what sort of author writes interview-replies like this? oh, wait.
