Well, here goes. First of all, to answer a question I get asked FAR too often and hopefully prevent it from coming up in the future, no, Jareth Valentine is NOT my real name. Or rather, it is. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that it isn't my LEGAL name. After all, which is more real? The name one is given, or the name one gives oneself? Hmm? I'm about six feet tall, with long dark hair and eyes can never make up their mind what color they wish to be. The avatar I currently animate is male, though I'm not entirely sure I am...I seem to be a gender unto myself...I shall call myself a Velvet, because that's what someone else called it and it's as good a name as any. Writing is something I'm reasonably good at. Quite possibly the ONLY thing I'm good at. The only thing I can't seem to do is finish anything. I'm serious, you should see the contents of my 'In Progress' folder...there must be two dozen half-finished stories in there. But anything that shows any signs of having an ending, I'll be sure to post ASAP. I ask but one thing in return. REVIEW ME, people. I crave feedback. Let me know there's someone out there reading this, and I'll have all the more reason to write it. Feed my ego. I also write fanfiction. At the present I am in the middle of an exceptionally long, and exceptionally good, Power Rangers story. You can find my stuff at:
Oh, and a big thanks to all the people who've reviewed me. I feel so loved. sniffle
Gateway to Druidia is by no means the first original story I've written. It IS, however, the first one I've written that got further than the first chapter, and for that it will always have a special place in my heart.
The Sins of Druidia series will (hopefully) include seven books, one from each of the Sins' point of view. Each one will be a continuation of the story, picking up where the last left off, but hopefully, each will be able to stand alone as an individual book. Oh, and that name might change. Just FYI.
A certain someone drew a very nice illustration for me, and I have every intention of using it as the cover art for the book, if and when a publisher decides to make my sad little dreams come true. If you'd like to see it, email me.
Oh...and, on the off chance that it DOES get published, I just MIGHT refrain from posting the final chapter. Just so you'll all have to buy the book. Because I can be evil when the mood strikes me, and strike it may.
Update 12/4/09 Yes, I'm still alive. Haven't posted anything in a long time, I know, but I'm still breathing and writing, so there's hope.
The main reason I haven't posted anything is that GTD is undergoing so many major revisions that anything I post from here on in would seem to belong to a different story than the one that's already up.
Ah, well. maybe I will anyway. Just to see peoples' heads spin.
