Dragon’s Day 2014

I’ll post an excerpt from WOlfBite, to mark the occasion, what occasion is that?  Why the second annual Dragon’s Day of course, some random holiday I made up last year, isn’t that interesting. I should post a link to last year’s explanation, let’s see if I remember to do
….

 

Alex ran from room to room he felt like he had caught his second wind.  Alex ran into a room and saw a dragon up in the air.  Before he had, a chance to think fire rushed from the beast’s mouth straight towards him.  Alex jumped to his right instinctually and charged towards the flying beast.  Alex jumped as high as he could and landed on the dragon.  The dragon staggered for a moment then it restabilized itself in the air.

For a moment, Alex was riding the dragon.  When the winged beast realized what was happening, it started to furiously twist and turn in the hopes of making Alex fall to his demise.  Alex’s whole plan was based off that reaction.  Soon the dragon flew into a wall Alex jumped off at the last second.

Alex watched the dragon hit the ground before him.  Once on the ground, Alex began to laugh.  ‘Taking down a dragon is a lot easier then it sounds,’ Alex thought to himself as he left the room.  Soon Alex ran into Fang by then he had been in the Thunder Temple for a few hours.  Fang was exhausted from running away from a pair of dragons.  Fang took Alex to the room with the dragons.  Facing two dragons was a lot easier than just one for Alex.  He started the same way he did with the one dragon before.  Before he knew it, he got the two dragons attacking each other.  Fang was dazed in amazement as the two dragons destroyed each other above them.

Hope you Enjoyed this Dragon’s day.

Should You Pitch (and Sign With) a New Literary Agent? The Pros and Cons

Writers In The Storm Blog

by Chuck Samuchino

BusinesswomanOne of the most common recurring work blog items I get complimented on is my “New Literary Agent Alerts,” a series where I spotlight new/newer literary agents who are open to queries and looking for clients. At writers conferences, a frequent question I get is “Is it OK to sign with a new agent?” This is an interesting question, so let me try to delve into it here.

First of all, let’s look at the CONS:

  • They are likely less experienced in contract and money negotiations.
  • They likely know fewer editors at this point than a rep who’s been in business a while, meaning there is a less likely chance they can help you get published.
  • They are likely in a weaker position to demand a high advance.
  • New literary agents come and some go. This means if your agent is in business for…

Shameless self promotion

Funny how I don’t do this more seeing as I only started this blog because some book on writing other books said it made selling them easier. Anyways here’s a bunch of echoshadow related stuff I’d like to just say hey go look at, most of this is of course already on the about page but who cares? Well obviously not me and I’m writing so that’s all that counts, I think….

So as many of you know, I’m a writer, I even wrote an entire book last November, good times good times. As many of you also know, never been published, so I’m trying to fix that. Long story short, if anyone has time, could you maybe look this thing over and like tell me if I sound professional and you know, not like a crazy person. THanks for your time.

Hello,
I’m (Name withheld) I’d like to talk to you about a personal project of mine. Beyond the Cutting Edge, a Mystery Fantasy novel about a young con artist/ thief who finds himself framed for a murder and has to solve the crime before something truly terrible happens. It takes place in the fictional town of Cutting Edge a place named after the factory and corporation that once was the very life force of their economy, the giant abandoned factory is now all that remains of the company. Those that live in the town know, something bad happened a long time ago, forcing business to leave, causing the town of Cutting Edge to be a place in decay. This is the story of one man’s struggle to not only free himself of blame and restore his name, but to bring to light what lies, beyond the cutting edge. The story focuses on themes of truth and freedom nature vs the mechanical, as well as redemption and remorse. Additionally I try to bring my slightly above layman’s understanding of biology into play in everything I write. The whole affair is approximately 50,000 words long and the target audience is young adults. I’m a 22 year old currently trying to save up enough money to attend college where I can study, biology.
