So, I'm very close to publishing a second book. But I'm not there yet because I've run into some issues with Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). One "solution" to my problem suggested that I needed to raise my book price in certain markets so that the royalties amount could also cover the printing cost. This was something I really, REALLY did not want to do. I'm not really in it for the money, I just like writing and want to share my stories...and make at least a little extra cash on the side. But as the total cost for my 500-page novel got closer and closer to $25 American, I began to think "I love my book and think I'm a good writer, but who in their right mind is going to pay $25 for a self-published book? Even a good one?" So my question for you readers in the AJSA Community is, would you? To me, that's quite an investment unless you're already familiar with the author and believe their work is worth it. If I wasn't familiar with the author, no, I don't think I would pay that much. Fortunately, it looks like pricing was not the problem, and I brought it back down to $17.49 (which is about $0.30 above the absolute minimum price Amazon will let me set). Stay tuned for a shameless ad when I do eventually get it published.
I have looked around the internet a bit and I know there is a lot of comic books related to Star Wars. If anybody knows a good lineup that I could start from. I would like to start from the very beginning and until the present (Well the latest star wars books) These don't have to be just comic books I can read words rather than captions. Thanks for anyone and everyone. Brisingr
Greetings friends of AJSA! Spoiler Alert: it's Long...really really long... Well title says it all... I'm writing a book, a fantasy book series that i had an idea in mind for some time (few days ago to be specific...XD) Anyway i want to involve you guys in it, it's general discussion so i guess i may write it here, right? Well i have some lack of characters to put inside, i have the main hero that's for sure and the story ready, but the secondary characterד (sorry for that term...) i don't know what kind of names to put for each man\female out there. So would you like to participate in the book? just consider yourself in middle age times or gothic times not sure how to say it right...just what kind of character would you like to be in, just like you are in a video game and inserting your character in some MMORPG... but don't go highly of yourself and say everyone is a king of many lands\emperor or anything like that, be a bit realist about it, like a citizen...merchant, carpenter, thief, bandit, soldier, militia, mercenary, scholar, teacher, politician, farm owner, labor worker, field worker, mayor of a city (only few would be granted that place, each role must present a reason for it...like you actually live that life...), and of course a blacksmith... (the hero is a blacksmith, from a small village, so you'll probably a city blacksmith in that case), alchemist, ship builder (for the navy), city guard, soldiers with high rank (there are enough places for that), bakers, sailors etc... (if i missed something, you may add your own ideas) I think the book will contain 7 major cities, 1 capital (means 8 total), and probably 10 farms and villages together... Note: each role you take must present a some special name that fits the era, not modern it may be unique. In addition, present which city,farm, village you from. The hero comes from a village, you can give your ideas about it. Names of the cities: Theobald-city where the commander of all the guards is from (relevant for the chapters) and it's next to Lobarts' village and of course the capital of the land... Gardimon- city of the scholars, of the wise people, alchemists scientists and of course has the best city guards to protect the greatest treasury... Craagan- city of the navy, where sailors and the fleet stationed Krifan- city of slavery,bandits, thieves, plagues, corruption and greed (for the second book) Vortin- City of the assassins, and mercenaries (assassins are only going to be on the third book, so don't put yourself in it yet...) You know what i'm not going to block you into those cites only, i will let you put down 4 more cities names if you are not interested to be in one of those cities that were mentioned, and you may put the idea behind them. the best ideas will be chosen and the people who made them will be the rulers of those cities-the name of the characters you put. It also goes for villages and farms, if your place is let's say close to those were chosen you would probably will be chosen as a village elder, or farm owner. Few notes: 1. After i'll finish the first book you may choose an assassin "class" 2. You have 4 cities and 10 villages\farms names that you may put as an idea and i'll choose the best 3. Just think you're in MMORPG, with custom character that fits the story not too OP and i'll treat you fairly to your class 4. Krifan and Vortin those cities won't be mentioned till the second and the third book (which means the classes won't be mentioned till the first one is finished)- correction: thieves and bandits are available always... 5. If there are women out there who is reading this, you are more than welcomed, it really lacks here...and yes you may be warriors, but there must be sort of balance... 6. The hero has a fiancee, so you may be it...or not...i kinda think i have someone for that 7. The hero has 3 best friends in the village, i have already names for them, so i cannot put you there 8. Each city has a population over 1000 people but i can mention only 20-50 each one....those 20-50 people will have names, the rest of the population are just won't be mentioned 9. Your ideas are always welcomed 10. I love you for the fact that you read this far, which mean you are probably interested 11. Name of the book : classified for the moment (yes i have a name) 12. Second title for the first book: "Spirit of Vengeance" 13. All rights are mine for idea in the book, you'll get your credit for participating in it-well your character will be in it, like a video game... 14. it's going to be a trilogy, each book has it's own title and main name...well like Lord of the rings, game of thrones, harry potter, etc... 15. Your idea must be mature, no childish ideas, of course you may choose to be a child in the story, but you'll be barely mentioned, you'll have an effect though on the story, probably one of the greatest effects out there, we'll see ...you may cause guilt on the main character... 16. Again thank you for reading this far...must be tough...there must be an achievement for this, well i salute you. Well i guess that's it, thank you for your time, love you all for making this far...without skipping of course Sorry for bad grammar and spelling, having some trouble sometimes... Thank you again and best regards! P.S: take my notes seriously... P.S.S: I'll read every idea that i can, i'm on vacation right now, so i have the time to start writing it, and reading your ideas to put in. P.S.S.S: I know i'm writing alot, but i take this seriously, it's one of the greatest hobbies i ever had so far, it may come successful in the end, and you had a huge part in it. P.S.S.S.S: Females can be mayors, landowners Let us write this book together, your participation, my writing we can do it Love you all...
Recently started reading this again and wondered if a movie version will be done. Michael Crichton novels made pretty awesome movies and tv miniseries (ie Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, etc). With interesting plot of rogue nanobots with networking capabilities through swarm AI and capable of self replication. Getting smarter, hunting prey (hence title) and replicating objects and disguising as humans through hiding under the skin (a bit like John Carpenter's The Thing). Add a little grey goo scenario hints. I think I could be a good if not great Sci-fi material. Anyone else read this? Do you think it will be made anytime in the future?
I just wanted to get a consensus of those of us who enjoy reading in addition to gaming it up all day. There has to be at least one of you in the crowd? Probably not, but it doesnt hurt to try. EDIT: Maaan, that was a long breakfast. Lol. Genres: - Sci-fi - Action - Mystery - Mythology/Fantasy Books: - Harry Potter series (Who hasn't?) - Percy Jackson Series - Heroes of Olympus Series - Warrior Heir series (Really recommend this one.) - Hunger Games (haven't gotten to the rest of the series, yet.) - Seven Realms Series, first book (Forget the name.) I'm sure I forgot some, but its a good amount of what I've read. Do you read? What are your favorite genres and books? Discuss.
As the title says, what is a game you would love to see and why? This could be from anything: A video game adaption of a book or movie, a sequel or prequel to an existing series, a new story from an existing series, or something you come up with from your own imagination, you get the point. If you can see why it would work, how it could happen, or even if you know it wouldn't work or would never happen, let us hear it. - For those of you who have heard of, seen, or read what I'm about to mention you'll probably be very angry with me. Those of you within that group who have heard of, seen, or played the abomination that was already attempted, you'll be even angrier with me. However with that said, I'd still very much love to see a well done Fight Club game. The 2004 game was fucking awful and an obvious cash grab but I feel like a game with a decent fight mechanic, well written, well told, and interactive story, as well as today graphics and some top notch acting would succeed not only among fans of the book and movie but of people who have never heard of or seen either. Imagined wanting to see it sort of like Mass Effect in a way while not being a total Mass Effect clone. Being given options as to what your character does that alter both minor and major things in the story, that allow you to create and shape your characters own reason for joining Fight Club and how they got involved with Project Mayhem, so on and so forth. I admit I'm pretty basic with the things I listed, I actually ended up writing this huge thing, paragraphs long, about the 04' game and the another huge thing, paragraphs long, about what I'd like to see in a re-done game and why I think it would work but after I finished it I felt like it deviated from the original idea of the thread and turned into a rant/review, so I muddied it down to this. Fight Club is both my favorite book and movie of all time so all in all my real reasoning for wanting this is wanting some justice done to something close to my heart. I also don't want to wait for the sequel coming in the form of a graphic novel...
