    What Movie or TV show are you watching?

    Valerian and the city of a thousand planets - I think the movie deserved more credit than it got. I guess that's often the way with these kind of movies.

    The Best TV Series!

    I'm a big fan of the 80's stuff like A-team, Magnum PI, Airwolf, Blue Thunder and several others. Stargate SG1 is awesome too but that's 90's...

    What would you like to see more of in fantasy books?

    How about fantasy that intertwines spiritual and philosophical themes and ideas into the story, without it detracting too much from the overall fantasy feel?

    What would you like to see more of in fantasy books?

    Agree that books need to have chapters from different character's perspectives... something I need to do more of in my own writing. I'm definately not a huge fan of the use of magic - there's something a little bit superficial about it for me - it detracts from the authenticity of the story.

    What would you like to see more of in fantasy books?

    I was wondering what things you would you like to see more of in a fantasy book? Do you think there needs to be more depth in terms of the characters, plot or theme - or maybe more battles, quests, romance, for example? Looking forward to your replies!

    Authors of Shame (and how to avoid the branding!)

    ((TomTB edit - I've moved all of these posts to a dedicated thread in the marketing section, as it seems to me that they're worthy of a new thread here which will prove useful!)) In defence of self-published authors, I don't think people realise how tough it is trying to get your book out...

    Your favourite historical movies?

    At the moment I'm watching "Helen of Troy", which is a 2003 mini series. It's not as visually impressive as the 2004 movie with Brad Pitt, but still a decent watch if you like the story.

    Your favourite historical movies?

    I totally forgot "Band of Brothers" - absolutely classic - all the actors had to go through basic military training for the role. Last Samurai is a good one as well. I think "Dragonheart", with Sean Connery doing the dragon's voice is my all time favourite though.
