trede: General update

Just to let everyone know about recent updates, here's what has been added to the site recently:




FAN STUFF

Fan art: one new picture by Kel, which is a colored version of a previous picture of Scoff.

Fan fiction: the first chapter of a story by Rachel Cooper (who also does fan art), called Nothing Goes.

Comics: I put up the first 13 pages of Kel's Heartland.

Remember, your submissions are accepted at any and all times! Let's make this site massive.




OTHER STUFF

• There's now a "creatures" page, which will over time become a bestiary explaining all sorts of things, from the differences between races of dragons, to all the different and exotic creatures in the Stone trilogy.

• No Graham Edwards news in ages, apart from the hints in the Feb 2006 interview. I keep my fingers crossed that Grum will update the website soon. I hope there's a new novel on the way.




REQUESTS

Is anyone able to get back issues of Realms Of Fantasy? I've tried but they don't accept Paypal - I don't have a credit card so Paypal is all I can use. If someone could get copies of April and October 2005 it would be awesome, as the site could then have a lot more info about the short stories Graham Edwards has written. See the magazine's website: http://www.rofmagazine.com




SITE FUTURE

I'm overwhelmed with college work at the moment, so no new major content until my break which is 3 or 4 weeks away. Then i'll have time to add more info (my current book is Stone and Sky, so lots of info from there coming soon). Of course in the meantime I'll still update the site with new art and fiction and what-have-you, as it comes to me. So keep those submissions coming. :D

draco18s: WOO! I got bored at ~4 am

I'm far from done, even for the prolog, but I figured I'd share, let those out there who are interested in making material for me to use to see what I'm doing.

Also, I need to switch Welkin and Wood's colors (I wasn't actually reading while I was drawing, just going for "blend into beach" and "shadowed" respectively).

Enjoy.

trede: Heartland: a comic

Prolific fan artist Kel has done a brilliant 13-page comic based around a scene from Dragoncharm (part of the chapter "Heartland", p. 87-94) in which Cumber and Fortune enjoy some cooked rabbits before witnessing a troll creating a stone circle.

You can see the comic now, and I'll put it on the site itself soon, I dunno if I should make a separate page for it or just put it with the fan art.

Here's the comic:

I absolutely love that last page. What do you all think?

Update: there's now also a title page: http://www.lovingdragoncharm.com/images/heartland/p00.jpg

Loving Dragoncharm is now online and functional! There's a lot of content still to come, but with the help of this community and fans everywhere, the site can only get bigger and better. If you can help with anything, let me know.

I'm going to be doing a few promotional things over the next few days - stuff like drawing new fan art and posting it to various LJ communities along with a link to the site. Feel free to do the same if you want.

Regarding technical issues: I've done limiting testing on browsers other than Safari, and there's the very real possibility that things could screw up for people. If anything weird happens, screenshot it or describe it in an email. Thanks very much!

Enjoy!

Sorry for the long wait, everyone. The site will be up and functional this weekend! Whoo! :)

trede: (no subject)

I just recently moved into college, and have found myself to be more involved in Orientation Week activities than I thought I would be. So it's likely there will be a bit of delay in getting the site up. I hope no-one minds.

Didn't get any feedback about the last post I made here, so I haven't done anything with the fan art gallery. So it won't be going up early. It'll be up when the rest of the site is up.

Give me a few days.

trede: Site progress; fan art gallery

I'm achingly slow in finishing reading the book, but I've promised myself I'll have read it by this Saturday (190 pages to go) so i can have the site up and running on Sunday.

But I'll need someone to help me rewrite some of the content - I'm pretty sure my character biographies suck.

Also, memorable quotes: if you can think of any, give them to me plus a page number. I want to have a nice little grouping of quotes for each book.




Currently on the site there's just a place holder page with a few updates and a link to this community. I was wondering if people would like me to put up the fan art gallery too, as a kind of featured piece of content to preview the website?

What does everyone think? Should I put the fan art gallery up early?

trede: Exclusive interview

Just recently Graham Edwards gave me the opportunity to interview him. I asked 17 questions in total, and here are the answers he gave.

Thanks very much Mr. Edwards for your time, and we sincerely hope you'll like the website once it's up. :)

The answers are fascinating, and at times tantalising... remember, sometimes less information is more information.

trede: A question

So I'm writing for the short stories page, and seeing as I haven't got the chance to read either of Edwards' published short stories yet, I've instead quoted a review of each of them from another site (http://www.tangentonline.com).

But, I'm wondering which of the following is appropriate/legal in this situation:

a) Quote the entire review (each is a few paragraphs, about 500 words each) as long as I explicitly state the author and the source

b) Quote only bits of the review (like, a few sentences), again referencing the source fully.

c) Quote none of it and simply provide a link to the page the article is located on.


(PS: The fan art section is complete for now, with 52 pictures. The site'll launch as soon as all the info is there for up to the end of Dragoncharm. Then I'll update it over the next few months with info from the other 5 books as I read through them.)
