After being stuck for weeks I had a breakthrough on the last chapter of the novel. *does little dance* It made me happy because now, I think, I have all the requirements to send it to a publisher. There are sixteen chapters total plus the epilogue.

Now a question. I know I have TDC readers in the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Canada. Is there anywhere else? I think one of the biggest selling points on this novel is that there's a market out there and, if I can convince the publisher to take a chance, there's a good chance it'll go overseas as well.
IF IT DOESN'T...I'll be willing to send copies to folks who ask. I'll likely set up a paypal account and would ask for shipping on the book plus the American purchase price which would be about six bucks. The only one I can do right off the top of my head is England and I think it would be about three pounds. Two dollars for every pound. Or would that be twelve? Oh well, you guys get the idea.

And I think I have to change Mandy's name to isolate this from the fan fiction piece totally because of the CSI/NCIS copyright issues. I've changed the dragons and humans already. Oh, and people watch the CSI shows in the book. So I hope that covers it. *grin*

Oh yeah, I've walked up to lecture theaters to 10 or so people outside gone in the the lecturer is already sitting there.
And apparently if we were all one big community we'd all be a poor as the third world because everyone would have to be equal.
Oh, fan fiction :) I don't know how I managed the first 14 years of my life. And you make so many friends too, like when I get your book I can tell people I actually know the person that wrote it.
Ah, limited editions can cost huge amounts, although you can sometimes get signed ones for the cover price, but not with Terry Pratchett I don't think he signed that often.

But it's so interesting from a sociological point of view. :)
I love the fan fiction community. Especially the CSI group. I've written in other fandoms too but this is by far the best. :)
The Pratchett book was like one of 1500 with a printed signature in it. I didn't even look at the price, I figured I was on holiday. And I found three that I couldn't get here so that made me really happy.

I guess it would be pretty interesting from a sociology stand point but I wouldn't even begin to know how! The closest I've come to that sort of thing is Economics which really isn't, I'm too mathematically minded for that sort of subject :)
Yeah, CSI is one of the best fandoms out there, crime drama fandoms in general actually. And the guys in Bandom are the nicest people ever too, a lot have migrated from supernatural I've found and that's said to be a really friendly fandom.
Oh, one of those special print runs, like the posh hard back Harry Potters with JKR's sig on the cover that cost an arm and a leg.

Yeah, my department the first time around sucked so I ended up in a lot of sociology classes to get my Justice degree.
I'm just getting into the Supernatural fandom but it seems great so far. But, like I said, I really feel at home in the CSI group. I think I've run into like two really mean people since I started writing.
Yeah, like that. I figured it'd be my only time in England when he put one out and I was on holiday. And Ro took a pic of me next to the billboard in the tube for the book. That's my pic on myspace right now.

Oh it sounds interesting, but with our degrees we don't get to choose classes and what not so I've not had the choice of picking something like that up, and I did Maths/Business A-levels.
I'm not really into supernatural I only caught the last episode of the first season and I've not really been bothered to try to get into it. I think 20 or so readable fandoms is enough :)
I have a pic like that next to an Eragon one in Euston tube station, I went and stood outside the premiere and we snagged 3 of those boards they hang on the barriers.

I tend to read in the fandoms I watch/read so that limits my scope a little. *grin* I fell in love with Supernatural when I saw my first episode in London. But I feel like a dirty old lady because Sammy is the same age as my kid brother. *sigh*
Ally and I have been discussing the differences between UK and US universities. I'm not sure which system I'd like better. I do know I'd like to take the classes that'll help me the most at my chosen career and that so doesn't happen here.
Yeah, you wouldn't think a pic in a tube station (and I'll be deuced if I can remember which one it was) would be my favorite from the trip. Well, that and me next to the statue of Sherlock Holmes outside Baker Street Tube.
