Hire an Elven translator...

Any fans of The Walking Dead out there? I've seen the first season and really loved it. The writing is really great with natural sounding dialogue. It's based on a comic book series produced by Image Comics which is really well done as well. The thing about the story is that the characters are very interesting so it doesn't really matter the setting, I would still be into the story. It just happens to be about a zombie apocalypse. I suppose if you are disgusted by gurgling undead and their dangling body parts, you should stay away, but otherwise check it out. I dig it.

In novel news, I am nearly at 50,000 words on Shards of S'Darin. That's page 152 for those counting. By now, the characters have taken over. I have no more control. Dwarves are everywhere, Pith are everywhere, the Rot is rampant, Deckard is a replicant. I hope you all enjoy book two. I've put a lot into it and I hope it shows once it's published. As always, I appreciate your support and feel free to contact me. I promise to send a reply, but I might write it in Elven so hire a translator.

How is everyone?

Hey everyone,
It's been a few days since I've posted here, so I thought I would let you in on what's going on in my world. I've been working a lot on Shards of S'Darin. I've made very good progress on it. I have a few friends that are reading it as I write it (aren't they the lucky ones) and they love the direction that it is taking. It's sitting at 41,500 words right now and I've just started Chapter Seven. More Stone Trolls, the Dwarves have been introduced, Creatures, Dragonbuck.
On a side note, if you like fantasy then you know about Game of Thrones. Everyone is talking about it, so I decided to watch a few of the tv episodes. I haven't read the books. Should I? Anyway, I like the series so far, but I really don't think I would call it fantasy. Just my opinion. It seems more historical, but maybe things change later on in the story. I am a fan of Sean Bean, though.
So, I hope everyone is doing well and feel free to shoot me an email. I will respond to every one of them.
