Product Description

All three parts of the epic masterpiece combined in one definitive edition of the text.

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Since it was first published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.

Not Quite Kindle / Re: What is your favourite word?

Too many.  But growing up, I like the word, "abattoir" - more because the pronunciation fascinated me vs. what it really meant.

Then I started using it in phrases like 'an abattoir of ideas'.  Blah blah - I've grown up since then.

I wonder about series titles, rather than book titles.  For example, if author John Boogermeister has a cozy mystery series called Murder Most Fowl (set on a chicken farm, naturally - haha), I wonder if the series title would work as well as author title.  On the theory that sometimes readers remember the name of the series better than the name of the author who writes it.    ???

Not quite the same, but I did it with fantasy worlds.  So, for example "pern" as well as Anne McCaffrey and found that the author name had far more impressions than the world.  In that example, I had ten times as many impressions for the author as I did for the world and click through rate was about the same.

My book Over the Edge began as a dream. But though I've always really wanted to hang out with some of my characters in a dream, it's never happened :(

Try doing what I'm doing. I actually first tried it when I was learning about lucid dreaming. I'd think about something right before sleep, and if nothing else distracts me, I'd slip right into the scene in my head as I fall asleep. My lucid dreams are still spontaneous though.
I guess with my books, it happened on its own because I was exhausted and focused on the story. Try thinking about some new scenes with your characters when you're really tired, and then falling asleep. You have to be interested enough in the scene in your head, but not too alert so you don't get carried away and end up with insomnia.

Writers' Cafe / Have you been 'traditionally published' before?
« Last post by TracyBuchanan on Today at 01:56:53 PM »
Hi, I'm a newbie here! I'm published 'traditionally' and my ebooks have been selling well. I'm increasingly beginning to wonder if I'm mad to be accepting the tiny percentage return in royalties I get. So the 'self publishing' (if that's the right phrase to use now!) route is looking interesting, especially for one book I've been working on (so being a 'hybrid' author).

Has anyone else on here branched out into self-publishing after being published by a publishing house? Any advice (I will do lots of reading and research into self-pubbing successfully, just mean general tips and experiences).

I'm not much of an outliner!  I have random ideas that I write down but most of the time I just kind of sit down and write, winging it seems to work for me!

I can work both ways. I prefer a basic outline for standalone novels and a more detailed one for my fantasy series, but only because I have about a 100 scenes that I want to include in different books, and I have to find a way to incorporate them into the main storyline. But that's all just to know where it's headed, because giving the characters the freedom to choose their path and coming up with great stuff 'on the run' is definitely the best part of writing.

Ah that's probably what she did then. I'll have to play around with them although I am in some doubts of being able to fit a genealogy that complex on a page and have it be is legible, so it's going to take some fooling with especially since I've never touched those tools before. :)

My Sony recorder has a USB connector that slides out of it.  I guess you could connect your recorder to your computer with a USB cord.

Writers' Cafe / Beware Fiverr and Identity Theft
« Last post by Melody Simmons on Today at 01:50:53 PM »
A kind Kboards member just alerted me that someone is selling book covers on Fiverr under my name, using my banner and book cover samples to advertise AGAIN, for the third time this year.

This is the page:


Though I have reported it and hopefully it will soon be removed.

I just want to warn all cover artists to check the Fiverr pages regularly.  Search for Book Covers and see what pops up. The people who sell on Fiverr have no scruples and steal covers for their portfolios. It has happened to other designers I know too. I also wish to ask authors to double check on things before using any of these services.

Okay I don't know if the above link works but the person calls himself "Surgeongraphics" and here is a screen shot:
