  1. Gosh, sounds brutal. The closest thing to that that I can recall was a series of photos I saw about people shaving women's heads after the war because they allegedly had sex with the German soldiers. The Shaved Woman of Chartres
  2. I only know the comic. There is apparently a novel with an official English translation, but there a tons of illegal websites that copied the content. Are you sure you didn't accidentally read it on one of those? That would explain why it got cut off - those websites aren't the best.
  3. Let's not make it complicated. Do you admire the good training montage? Have you ever thought to yourself "I wish the books had more of this"? Well, Progression Fantasy is exactly that. Imagine a story where the whole point of this to have tons of training montages and battles where the protagonist can show off his or her latest, most awesome new skills/powers. If you're interested in reading something, I suggest the web comic Solo Leveling aka Only I Level Up.
  4. I actually really love the trailer! The setting, clothes, and effects seem fine to me. The only thing I'm worried about is that the cast seems full of relative unknowns. I hope the actors do a good job and I'll definitely be watching.
  5. They already have a cover, it's on their sig.
  6. Nah, just put everyone's names on the cover! I mean, like this https://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Pale-Anthology-Jim-Butcher/dp/0989448738
  7. No idea about "problems" (you mean like legal problems?) but that would be confusing for the reader. Whichever author name/s will be listed on Amazon should be what's on the cover. Otherwise, people will hesitate to buy since the cover author name and listed author name are different. It would look like someone accidentally uploaded the wrong book! On the back matter there is an "About ____" page where you can include a line saying "_____ (pen name), whose real name is _____, lives in Nebraska with his two dogs, three cats, and one parakeert." if you want to put your real name.
  8. Don't worry! The days of difficult self-publishing are totally over! I just used a simple LibreOffice document with Kindle Create. All you have to do is this - https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/GYVL2CASGU9ACFVU
  9. Thank you! *nods* One hour of productive/creative work is better than ten hours of writer's block!
  10. I generally liked the Shadow and Bone trilogy for the setting, but the male and female leads could be more interesting. It showed potential so I'm open to reading the author's next books. I haven't watched the Netflix series.
  11. Wow, just went over the discord for Scribblehub writers and they told me most self-published books only sell like 3-10 books on launch so I'm actually doing well with 20 books sold so far (as of today). Most of the income they make is through Patreon and Kindle Unlimited (KU). I'm not on KU since it requires exclusivity.
  12. I have been writing but I hurt my right arm so I've been looking into dictation software. Any recs?
  13. For those with unpublished manuscripts, there's an interesting contest that you only need to submit 1,250 words for. Feb 21 deadline. https://www.firstpagesprize.com/ The 2021 Prize will support FIVE emerging writers with cash awards totalling US $5,000 and developmental editing. Top 3 winners receive an agent consultation. I am not affiliated with them in any way.
  14. I think you nailed it. BTW, the Netflix series based on her story, Inventing Anna, sounds as exciting as watching paint dry but, who knows, maybe it will be good.
