Okay, okay, he said it "wasn't bad..."

Same thing, ain't it?

@ M2D

(Jaw hanging open in mute, drooling amazement...)

Thanks, DO realize I'm one'o them "Indies" right?

Ronald Craig says:
You really went ahead and did it?! LOL.

Scott, sorry I haven't got back to the other thread yet with my comments on the sample of your book.

Like I indicated before, based on the sample alone (about 28 pages?), I don't think it's among the books I myself would immediately choose to read, but I can easily imagine that a lot of people would enjoy it. :)

Yea man. Read the excerpt, liked it. Mr. Craig DOES do some good around here.

Lo, Commander Keen!
Protect us from Vorticons,
And the Indie scrolls.

Not all Indies are so bad. I guess you've just gotta waft through some of the chaff to separate the wheat (thank you Matthew). One day, I'm sure, I'll be producing my own sci-fi story for self-publication... but that's only if I run out of novels to read. Just can't stop reading! I've got enough novels to last me for another full year (70+ books). There after, I might be flaming myself!

;) More haiku, anyone?

LOL I'll try not to let it go to my head ;o)

I wish Ronald Craig will lead by example and write a SciFi novel. I'm sure he as one in him and that it would be interesting, to say the least.

I wish Charles D. Hartik (you dropped the "Mr"?), who apparently fancies himself a writer, could write a good scifi novel himself. :)

(You should take a look at Scott's book, Charles. You might learn something.)

Edit: Ah, I see you edited out the "who supposedly has an MA" bit. Get tired of that line of attack already?

I'm waiting with bait smelling breath to see if Hacker School qualifies for the coveted "wasn't bad."

@ Charles and Ronald:

Gentlemen, your bickering is moving attention away from the focus of this self-serving thread, namely: ME!!


@ Allan:

Here's to hoping! Ronald's stated opinion of Pale Boundaries' sample (less-than-terrible) launched it into the top 100 of three science fiction subcategories for two days. LOL Obviously the man has influence...

Ronald Craig says:

Yeah, right. I'm finding this all very amusing, but know a special someone who probably isn't.

(But who cares?! LOL)

Sorry, Ronald, but you have followers, even if they're afraid to admit it--there's no other explanation.

It's a powerful gift, sir. *TRY* to use it only for good. :)

Ronald Craig says:
Wow... that's a really depressing thought.

Makes me fearful for the future of the species.

Posted on Apr 9, 2011 6:49:59 AM PDT
A perfect set up for my books. Fear of the future is best countered by optimistic, post-dystopian, almost YA, speculative fiction stories.

But since this thread is really all about Scott and Pale Boundaries I'll mention a phrase. This from a reader's review on Amazon; (Scott's characterizations) "bring about a sense of reality and crunchiness." Crunchy characters are almost always better than bad.

After I finish my physical stack of TBR, and get a Kindle, I'll probably get and read Pale Boundaries. At the least I'll download the sample too.

Good news!!!

There IS hope for the future of our species--Ronald (and his now-likely nonexistent followers) is NOT the source of my book's brief rise to the top last week!

By happy coincidence it happened to be featured in the "Bargain Bin" at at about the same time.

Breath easy, Ronald, all is right with the world once more. :o)

Hey, Ronald! Remember this one? (Heh heh)

I figured if you're going to revive threads from the pits of Hell I'd hop on that bandwagon with you. Actually, I was kind of surprised that his one hadn't transferred over to the MOAF ghetto.

I'm betting it will soon...

Dude, this is like stealth promo. Not cool.

Posted on Dec 20, 2012 8:12:16 PM PST
Oh, there's nothing stealth about it! That's why I didn't expect to find it still here.

Mmmm... necromancy. :)
