Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Since there doesn't seem to be a lengthy place to put up author bios or such (or I'm missing it), a bit about myself:
I live in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada and have been writing mainly for my own amusement (and partially my friends' amusement) since I was about 10. This means I have in and around a decade of writing experience under my belt...so to speak.
Most of what I wrote long ago is unusable now but I am gleening some ideas and characters from the old-stories-that-should-be-burned. I have written my first novel, "Tale of the Twins, Book One: Gathering and Destruction" and it IS out for sale as an e-book and as an actual novel (on amazon and Barnes and Noble for those interested).
For those who are curious, I do have a website (vonravenstone.com) and a few other networking things here and there. With a name like mine, it shouldn't be too hard to find me. ;)
Anyway, I write mostly fantasy. I've dabbled in sci-fi and am dabbling in crime fiction with one novel I'm working on...off and on. More research will be needed for the crime fiction one as I have no idea about what actually goes on in a crime scene investigation and what not. Currently, I have about...25 ideas and am working on five novels in tandum.
My friends say I have an 'entrepreneurial' mind, that is, I can't stay focused on one thing and I have to move to other things or I'll get bored. My friends also call me an introvert with the communication skills of a social butterfly when needed and a rambler. I completely agree, especially with the rambling part. If I ever write something less than four pages (a short story), I'm pretty sure the world would end...ha.
Since that is out of the way, I feel a bit better. And, feel free to ask me questions about whatever may come to mind. :)
