Greetings I signed up about a week ago, after searching for a good forum on fantasy related readings. I've more recently got into the fantasy genre, and it's quickly becoming my favorite. I'm a bit of a bookworm..some of my favorite books are "A Song of Ice and Fire" (saga) by George RR Martin, Stardust by Niel Gaiman, Lud-In-The-Mist by Hope Mirrlees, The Hobbit by Tolkien, and many others. Aside from reading, I'm an unpublished writer who's currently working on a novella (that is my target, for now). While I may or may not try to get this one published, it's been a huge milestone in my life of writing, and I feel that it's just the beginning of what I hope to be a career..or in the least, a huge hobby. I already have a concept for my next work, which will be a fantasy novel. The one I'm currently working on is more on the psychological horror side. Anyway..my name is Joe, I'm 24, and live in a small town in Washington state (US). I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time here, and perhaps sharing some of my work, and reading others! Also..if anyone has a librarything account, feel free to add me! Always looking for new collections to look at. This is my account: http://www.librarything.com/profile/twilightnocturne If you don't have one, I suggest signing up for one. I really like it, anyway So yeah..nice to meet you all, and such! Brightest Blessings.. Joe.
