    NK Jemisin - any good?

    She has rather strong views that some people do not agree with, but they can be ignored, mostly. She's the only writer who writes in first person I have ever been able to read. I like her books, all of them. The first trilogy she published but not the first one she wrote was the Inheritance trilogy. 10k Kingdoms, The Broken Kingdoms, the Kingdom of the Gods are a trilogy in the loosest sense. As in each book can stand on its own.

    The Best Villains in Literature

    Eragon because he doesn't even realise he's evil. Bayas from the First Law series.

    Boarders Writing a Novel Part 15

    Ah...It's been a busy year. Got so sick and tired of what I was writing I redesigned the maps and made some new ones. Still want to kill everybody. Made mistake of letting my dad reading manuscript. Only got two to three chapters in and he said the story was jumping around a lot and it doesn't appear to be coherent...... In the chapters he's read I've only introduced two characters who briefly encounter each other in the second chapter. Realised my Asperger's may prevent me from ever finishing the book or any book, then realised if Anna Smith Spark could do it so can I. Diagnosed myself as having a grasshopper mind, and nearly wrote an entire plot line based on the fact I saw how the Missy and Master arc was finished in season 10 of NEW WHO and thought wouldn't that suit these two characters of mine, and so had to stop myself. And I currently debate whether or not to split half my characters and plot line from one story into another one and have two completely unrelated world and story. It's been a busy year.
  4. I think you will find that the whole paragraph about Jezal admiring himself in the mirror is foreshadowing for something in book 2

    Writer's Dump: Post and Critique

    Something short. A character description from the second chapter.
  6. Bethod manipulating Logen with sex is not an image I was expecting today....but it happened.
  7. Ah. I must've missed that bit. I read the series when it first came out. I got the LAOK with the missing pages. Recently listened to them on Audible again and I still missed that. Hah. Thanks.
  8. Wait. Ferro was mentioned in BSC? Where? When? How?

    Authors who vanished from the face of the planet

    David Keck, author of in the eye of heaven and in a time of treason. Vanished after book two in his series. Don't know what happened. David Bilsbourough, the Wanderer's tale. This guy didn't come off well in interviews. Who knows what happened to him.

    Authors who vanished from the face of the planet

    Elizabeth Haydon finished her Symphony of ages saga but the later volumes were badly done and appeared mostly to be rushed. She's pretty much stated that she prefers writing for YA which is why her original series took so long to complete.
  11. Three Worlds by Ian Irvine. A none European setting. Think Africa, Asian pacific sort of thing.
