Advice that works for incredibly successful authors! posted 10 June 2005 in Author Q & AAdvice that works for incredibly successful authors! by diarmuid, Peralogue

if i may...

make sure the cover art is without any redeeming originality at all

i cannot expree to you how impotant it is that you add "extreme" to a title
( a point expressed elswhere here by better people than I)

the hero needs a sidekick...preferablly a talking monkey named Goober but i don't want to curb your artistic expression too much, so...

any talking vaguely humanoid animal that is bi pedal and carbon based would be fine

but it must be bi-pedal...the kids are nuts about that these days and the spiders look creepy on Burger King glasses

and if the talking sword could speak in very simple rhyming couplets.....bliss

man this is so easy....it's no wonder you can't sell books in the states..

"original premise"....that and a buck twenty five will get you a cup of coffee view post

Kellhus, Achamiam, and Emotion posted 13 June 2005 in The Warrior ProphetKellhus, Achamiam, and Emotion by diarmuid, Peralogue

Kellhus not human?

He is clearly superhuman...

where "super" means not "not" but "more"

as for lacking emotion...he has shown lots of it to my way of thinking

but think...emotion is almost always generated by surprise or the unexpected

how much do you think happens among the "subnormals" that Kellhus doesn't see coming?

not much in the beginning...hence no emotion that we are shown

but towards the end of TWP?

i am anticipating a little sumpin sumpin from TTT on this very issue! view post
