Wattpad or Traditional Publishing. Both?

DUDE…WTF??

It’s just the way he is. You’ll get used to him. Or may be not.:joy:


#386

Also, the middle schoolers who bought the first book were in college by the time the final book came out. That series matured with its readership, which I think is kind of brilliant.

The Pern books were Adult Fic when they started and became younger as time went on.

I was a fan of the original 3, and STUNNED when they became kids books. She was an excellent SciFi author.


#388

HA! Older than all of you! 58


#389

LMAO! I saved my allowance to get the White Dragon, the first hardback I ever bought.


#390

Nope! I gotcha by a whole year. :sunglasses:


#391

I’ve got to do something with my twitter account. It’s been staring at, daring me to tweet something for a couple years now.

Anne McCaffrey! Oh my! I bought most of her books. They’re still downstairs.
Robinton.
The white dragon
Moreta, oh that brings back memories. I loved those books, read them many times. Only the adult ones though, the kid stories confused me. Her son wrote quite a few as well. Not badly either. Loved the bit where the dragons soar in turbulences. That got rather real (I hate flying)
Okay, that was off topic but personally I find having them in the shelf, as something I can touch - I think it still makes a difference.


#393

Me too. I bought them in digital, and I still reread them.

My favorite McCaffrey book, though, isn’t sci-fi/fantasy. It’s a horse story called “The Lady” (in the US – was titled differently in the UK). I can’t count the number of times I’ve read it, nor how many copies I’ve purchased.


#394

Strangely that series never worked as e-book for me, but that’s me. Maybe it was simply the thing to do at the time.
There’s a place for everything I would say.
I’ve gone hybrid anyway. I’ve got my publishing deal and I just entered NEXT. I think that’s a wonderful mixture.
I love experiments as much as old books…


#395

Never heard of it. Will check. Her writing’s great


#396

I think I have a copy somewhere. It was one of her Ireland Romances. It was VERY good.


#397

One of? There are more?


#398

Yes, with some of the Harper Hall books. They were geared for such a young crowd.


#399

Romances - two are in Ireland.
Ring of Fear, The Mark of Merlin, The Kilternan Legacy


#400

Oooh, I love anything that’s related to Ireland! I might check this book out.


#401

Be aware it’s set in Ireland in the very early 1970s. If you judge the characters by today’s standards, you may be frustrated.


#402

Running off to find them. THANK YOU!


#403

Are they still in print? I picked mine up at a yard sale 10 years ago.
