Well, as the publication of The Sleeping Life rapidly approaches, it's time to draw the winners of the survey competition! And the random number generator says: 3 and 55!
Congrats Nina and Kelsey! Emails will be wending their way to you shortly.
I had plenty of fun reading all the survey results. I totally recommend to other authors that they ask their readers for their favourite moments/re-readable moments in your books, because so many of them are my favourite moments as well. :D
The answer to question 1 was totally unsurprising.
My fave is still Stained Glass Monsters. :D But also, usually, whatever I'm writing at the moment, in between hating it. There is always a "Wow, this is so much better than I thought" stage in re-reading a book you've recently written - while the current chapter is always The Worst Thing Ever.
Not long at all now before I can put up links to TSL! Then onward, ever onward, to all the new books I decided I wanted to write while working on this one.
Edit: Expanding this post as requested to include a few more results.
Fave POV Character: Cass by a long way, but Medair, Ash and Rian also gained a fair number of votes.
Fave Non-POV Character: Kaoren, Aristide, Maze, Ys, Illukar and Illidian.
Story Element: Evenly scattered among categories I've already been writing, with some preference to not go in for too much smut.
A lot of fun stuff here, including:
- Arden Ruuel falls in love.
- Daily life fluff.
- Setari School Stories.
- How Fish and Maddie managed to get together.
My favourite question!
- Lots of people liking that elevator encounter. :)
- The scene where Rennyn calls the lifestealer.
- The crypt in Silence of Medair.
- Thornaster laughing himself into hiccups.
- Trolling the Secret War actors.
- Dragon conjuring!
- 80% mark on And All the Stars.
Looking forward to:
