When someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes.

Read up on fictional gods and the characters that pray to them, as my A to Z speculative fiction tropes series continues.

This week:

Lost Girl The conflicts in the show aren’t due to their race, or their gender, or their sexuality, or anything else – they’re due to the people. The individuals.

Self Fulfilling Prophecies Fans that have been demanding, for years, that they respond to their desires and allow them to pay for their hard work and amazing product. In the process, the merchants have only hindered them, and punished them, and demanded that they, in return, purchase products in a manner that consumers don’t want to purchase through.

What is Art A good game soundtrack can set to tone to the world and add important atmospheric tensions. Fallout 3’s soundtrack contrasted deeply with the wasteland, and never was this more accurately thrust at us than in the teaser trailer. I know I’m not the only fan that still gets a shiver when they hear “I don’t want to set the world on fire…”

Words: they say a picture is worth a thousand of them. Fair enough, but I think sometimes the exact opposite is true. Sometimes nothing can portray emotion as well as a few simple words.

I've set myself a grueling schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for updates. It's Monday and I've updated. We'll see how long I can keep this up.

Author Interview with Kim Wright
On her books and the changing world of publishing.

"The biggest advantages of self-publishing is that no one can tell you 'no' and that, as a writer, you keep a bigger percentage of the profit on each copy you sell."

Looking at having a book cover designed? Cover Artist Scarlett Rugers answers the big questions on what to look for in a designer, how to create a compelling cover & the do's/don'ts of book covers!

She covers a lot, so I've broken them into two posts:

One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy is a weird science fiction tale set on the moon. But is it worth your time? Find out here: It is illegal to speak of the existence of the so-called fourth primary color.
