Something About Me and My Book:
I am an aspiring author, but have yet to produce a complete manuscipt. Like many befor me, I have a few(too many) irons in the fire,one of which is a treatment of the Arthurian legends.
My interests include history (biblical and otherwise) as well as sci-fi,fantasy,mystery & a bit of horror thrown in for good measure.

What do those of us who enjoy historical fiction want from a story of this type. Obviously, for many of us there is a simple desire to visit distant shores. But,what to make of the inhabitants we find on those shores? Do we prefer an author who requires that we not only get to know a cast of characters, but also their cultural mores and values, recognizing that as denizens of the past, they are citizens of a "foreign country" as L.P Hartley so famously put it ("they do things differently there")? Or do we instead ask the author, our tour guide on this journey, to translate the experience into a modernized "shorthand" of sorts, so that we can hit the ground running. Should those who prefer the latter be looked down on for hitting what some consider nothing but all the "tourist traps?"

I just think it is a great thing that there is always a ship at the pier of the imagination bound for just the port we're looking for. 

Uh oh, I think I hear the captain calling. Time to set sail. I hope you all get to where you want to go. Maybe I'll see you when I get back.

If We Build It Up...

I would have to agree w/ Ms. Aurilia Sands' blog post on this site that the lack of distinction/differentiation between advice forums and ad-space can be discouraging. However, I think that the failure of the vast number of users to utilize the amazing opportunities offered by these forums leaves a vacuum that tends to be filled by what little is out there. I imagine that those who frequent this site have much to occupy their time. It is hard, however, to… Continue

Paul, I wish I had been smart enough to design such a family. But that takes a higher power with more intelligence and forethought than I can muster. :)

Thanks, Paul. Our plan is to make the series look like a set of old leather books for people to display on their shelf. :)

Thanks, Paul. My husband designed the covers. He also did my website and my daughter all the artwork for the characters and promo videos.
