I prefer not to use the ND site for personal topics, since most don’t appeal to readers specifically, but now and then there’s an exception. I’ve been following activity on one of several Noble Dead fan pages on Facebook, aside from our own official page. A few people have looked about for art done by fans for the characters of the Noble Dead saga. Back in the early days, when we ran a small forum on our first ND web site, this type of artwork popped up now and then.
While browsing the group mentioned above, I looked up from where I sit at the dining room table (where I often write). I re-noticed one of our oldest artworks on the wall that isn’t a print from one of our books… or a general artwork we just like. It still mesmerizes me for how I…
Wait, I’m getting too far ahead. Let’s go back to the beginning…
For our first entry in this ongoing series, we chose both an old question from interviews [adapted] and a new one from those recently submitted by readers. We’ll try to keep things mixed up that way as often as we can. This will likely lead to further expansion and reorganization of the site’s FAQs when we have time. The title of each Q&A article will reflect the topic(s) addressed and possibly where they will be filed under old and new headings in the FAQs.
Well it looks like we finallly got it to work. You can follow news from NobleDead.org about the Noble Dead Saga (and future related books) via our official FaceBook page. Soon we'll have a link to it in the sidebar of this site.
For now, to subscribe via FaceBook, go to the official page at https://www.facebook.com/TheNobleDeadSaga and look to the bottom of the left sidebar. There you will find both the SMS and RSS subcribers links... or you can just click those linked words herein to give it a try.
We've been struggling to get a Facebook "page" set for NobleDead.org where news summaries will show up so people can use that system as their preference for following what's happening the Noble Dead Saga and us. We are getting closer with a small break through this morning. So this post is merely a quick test, and if it works, some of the past posts should show up on the NDO page on Facebook. You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/TheNobleDeadSaga to give it a try for yourself. More later.
We’ve been asked many questions concerning the Noble Dead saga, authorship, and fiction writing. Some have been answered in past published interviews, but most of those are out of print. Many readers have also submitted questions through our old site, and we answered through email, one by one. Time for a change…
Barb and J.C. will attend “Authorfest” at the Beaverton Powell’s bookstore. This is a fun event where many local SF/Fantasy authors will be in attendance and signing their books. Since it is a bookstore (and one of our favorite local chains), of course books are on sale during the event. The store staff makes a great effort to be certain all current books by attending authors are available. Please join us if you can!
Date: Sunday 11/13/2011
Time: 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
