— The Lost Words

It’s like that legendary British TV series, Are You Being Served?, only completely different. In fact, I want to talk to you about how reading other people’s work may influence your own writing. Emphasis on may, which is why we are here.

My very first fantasy read was The Hobbit. And I immediately fell in love with the book. I was probably twelve at the time. Next came The Lord of The Rings, which really opened the world of fantasy books before me. I was still a youngster back then, and I struggled slightly with the multitude of characters and plots.

Anyhow, what I want to talk to you is one’s change in the like and dislike of certain authors and sub-genres of the fantasy world, and how my own perception of the literary works changed over time, most likely caused by the inevitable aging and arguable mental maturity gently settling upon my shoulders. So what gives?

Now, so far you have only had two books, which means we cannot discuss those who survive into the third and fourth installment of this series, but we sure can dabble a little into the protagonists, antagonists and other gonists featured in The Betrayed and The Broken.

Let us announce the happy winner of this contest. All in all, more than forty people pledged, or had their names pledged to the contest, including the participants of the original my-best-software and the subsequent limerick contests. However, only 22 of them wrote their reviews in time, before the official expiry date of Year 2013. We even had one  exception, of a contestant who could not purchase the book on Amazon due to regional restrictions and whatnot, but they got their book by postal mail and subsequently wrote their opinion on Goodreads.
