Re: [ShadowRealms] Re: Some help on what to buy next please? Fae??
- Ah....thanks for giving me some of the low down and
the recommendations. I read what i could on the
official site, but sometimes it isn't enough to know
what is going on. For me, Sebastian started off slow
in the first chapter or 2 so i can't always go by the
excerpts. Bought a hardcover not long ago after
reading the excerpts on the author's site and
regretted it. The excerpts on that specific author's
site i found misleading as to what the story was about
compared to what was in the finished book. Luckily,
that rarely happens.
I just finished up Dreams Made Flesh. I am glad we got
to see what followed up to the events in the Queen of
Darkness as well as how it started. That was a
bittersweet first story. Saeten's was so sad and
disturbing. Almost gave me nightmares. Saeten, Surreal
and Sadi are my absolute favorites though to be
honest, i love them all and i HATE the villians. I
mean i really hate them and their actions. Usually, i
can find something to sympathize or like about a
villian in most books i read, but these....::shakes
Half the time i think they got off too lighlty for
their actions! I hope that makes sense without me
coming off too violent. It is the rape and abuse. I
read the books to make sure everyone will make it and
worry when they don't. It can be an emotional
I love the character of Surreal! She reminds me of my
best freind with her attitude of just doing what needs
to be done even if it is dangerous to her own life. I
would love to see more on her in more books. One can
always put in a vote for more on other supporting
characters to get their own story told by Anne, right?
I visited the bookstore again today while my husband
got something at Best Buy. I am determined that i will
finish up Anne's books so i am currently trying to
talk my husband that i REALLY need those other 4 books
i am missing now. He pointed out that i may read fast,
but i still don't need all 4 in one night. I
disagreed. But i held back as i am still waiting on
them to get Pillars of the World first as they have
the others, but not the first book so i went ahead and
picked up The Invisibile Ring. I didn't want to start
off reading a new series on the 2nd book. Almost did
that with Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and came close
to regretting it as it would've spoiled the previous
I have only one major problem. After i finish this Fae
series, what will i do for my Anne Bishop fix? Someone
mentioned that she had another Black Jewel story in a
short story collection or is that in the works and not
released yet? I didn't see anything on the site for
Do You Yahoo!?

They'll either buy your story or not. But if you're looking at people to read
your work in draft form to provide feedback--or just cheer you on to write the
next chapter--than ask someone you really trust.
My understanding of copyright is that once a creative work is in tangible
form--that is, you have a hard copy--the copyright laws apply. Print out a hard
copy, date it, and put it in a file before you show the work to someone.
This is a common fear. We've all had it. The fact that someone did steal
something from you once makes it harder to believe that it won't happen again.
Until the story is in print, when it comes to the question of who sees your
work, it really is all about trust.
In a message dated 6/7/2007 7:01:27 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
I also wanted to ask anne if there anything she knew
about the copyright laws. I'm so scared to even let
someone read my work

- I have a friend that writes music and he makes a practice of putting a
finished piece in an envelope and mailing it to himself in care of the name
of the song. When he gets it back, he doesn't open it but files it away.
That way there is an un-opened copy with a postmark to establish date
written. Don't know how it would hold up in a court of law, but he told me
the attorney for the band recommended he do this. It was an interesting
idea, however, so I thought I might share.
Peace, love and dragons!

- Thanks for that info after I read Anne's message I
went and looked up some copyright laws and that was
mnentioned for smaller works like poems and songs. It
cost more to mail to yourself if its a manuscript
because of the weight.
