    UH HUH. But you ignored my last tweet so I dunno....
    Hee hee
    Pfft, you don't have a tyrant bone in your body.
    TRYNA DITCH ME </3
    Excellent idea. Truly. We should have a presence on Reddit too in the LitRPG space over there. So ppl there know of our existence. That would be a good way to introduce us? I dunno if Reddit allows links to other forum sites though. @Larakel , you are our Reddit expert, any idea?
    One of the reasons I keep being drawn back to Ramon's website is for his list of `new releases. On Goodreads, the readers seem to want to know the dates of these releases. This is good info thave available. Which we DO but maybe it needs to be more prominent somehow? I dunno.
    Nah, I have to decline. I'm not a review person. But as a favor I will review your book if I've read it, so don't hesitate to ask. I know how much it helps! I nominate @WildAzazel .
    Diversity is also needed in LitRPG. Don't forget this much-valued topic.
    This is a TON of work. You'd really have to be passionate to take this on. But the rewards would be stellar, I'd imagine. If done right.
    See above heh.

    No one's mentioned it, but I have a character who is, I believe, the first Dwarf-of-Color in fantasy. Why should evil Drow get to have all the fun? ;)

    Also, one of my MC's is partially paralyzed in the real world. I brought that point up some in book two (because of a suggestion by Ramon!) but it got ignored so far in reviews too. I paralyzed him in-game to remind him of his real-world status.

    Doing a podcast or a video cast is a ton of work, but the thing that really sucks is the schedule. Me and a bunch of other writers did a show on YouTube for about 2 years where we interviewed best selling indie authors. It was great, but I got to hate the fact that I had to leave my family and go do the show for the rest of the night each week. That sounds like a little thing, but week in and week out it gets old.

    Also, I suck on video. I'm much better in text.

    Could make it a pop-up Podcast - like those pop-up restaurants and what-not.

    Hard to build an audience when they don't know when the next episode will be.

    Same, I stutter and I'm not a quick thinker/talker. Typing has always been my forte. I wish I could talk to everyone IRL through typing.

    Yeah, it's weird. Put me in front of a keyboard and I can be witty and think of great things to say, but on camera I struggle.

    I haven't kept up with this conversation as much as I would have liked to. I've been a bit busy with my second novel and by the time I finish writing I get really tired and anti-social and it sounds silly but I actually have difficulty just posting on a forum. I want to contribute to the community, but I think the biggest hurdle in my way is what I write and the fact that I don't know what to do. I'd love to do something like have a "panel" like thing with Eden Redd, Tom Gallier, and others that write what I do once I get my name out there more. I'd really love to talk to some people in other communities that I think would like this, but I don't have enough clout to be noticed.

    My current plan is to write hard until I get a certain number of novels, then try to start reaching out to other communities that would like the stuff we do. While I'm doing that I'll be looking for ways to reach more people.

    I decided I didn't want a permagame portal world thing.
    But I didn't just want to begin with "she started gaming..." so it took me ages to find her motivation.

    Then I built a game system. Then I worldbuilt a fantasy, and loved it so much I decided to eventually set a whole series of fantasy novels there, so I shelved it.

    Then I came up with a fantastic storyline - a multi-genre multi-series where the main characters of each genre-series interact with each other IRL and there's an IRL plot connecting all the game plots. But the first story was really hard to write.

    So I put it aside and started a much simpler game world only superhero LitRPG but I feel bad for abandoning the other story.

    Someday in the future where my regular job affords me the time and money to pursue writing I might give it a good. My wife would love to write but she doesn't do fantasy. Maybe I'll find a new job soon.

    I find this to be motivating.
