I've never done this before. Actually what I should say is, I've never gone to a chat room to meet with other writers and their crazed fans! LOL OMG I've never seen anything like it! The whole thing was scrolling so fast I could scarcely keep up and then when I happened to glance away for a second to read an email - BAMP! I won the door prize and everyone was typing - 'Congrats Blak!' and I didn't even know why everyone was saying it... Duh... And yes I did get my prize. I won a $10.00 gift certificate for Amazon.ca! I do purchase from Amazon, so this is totally awesome!
Adding to this, on a more serious note, I've got to say what an interesting and thought provoking experience. I met with and talked to a few other authors and I also got to see how they interact with their fans... And I've got to say - WOW! The authors were great! The fans were great! It was so much fun! I've been invited to participate again and I'm definitely going to do it! I'll try not to be so shy next time! LOL Thanks AJ for the invite!
As the weeks pass, I learn a little more about the publishing industry and my fellow authors - some well known, others up and coming, and of course the newbies like myself, and I've got to say what a wonderful group of people! They're supportive, intelligent and always willing to offer advice!
If you get a chance, you should try the Night Owl Review chats! Who knows maybe we'll see each other there sometime! And yes I haven't forgotten. My next installment in the world of Yaoi is soon to be posted!
Happy Yaoi Hunting!
Blak Rayne ^_^!!
P.S. I just thought I'd add a sexy (yaoi) picture I found! Enjoy! The image is from the yaoi manga called Shujii by: Sadahira Mika
