Where the Map Ends...



The February CSFF Blog Tour ventures into new territory for the next coupla days. We won't be reviewing a book at all, but rather a righteous SciFi/Fantasy Website called:
Where the map ends.

I've only begun to explore its richness. But so far it seems to be a treasure trove for anyone who likes to write or read SciFi/Fantasy. I particularly enjoyed the interview with Frank Peretti.

The booklist ROCKS as well. Just make sure (ala the Matrix) that you take the RED pill.

More over the next coupla days. Click on the link above or in the sidebar to go…Where the map ends!

Hey thanks Mr. B! That site is really cool. I was checking out his views on agents, publishing, etc. There's tons of important information on there for those of us who've never been published. Thanks!

Jefferson Scott said...

Thanks for the kind words, Wayne and friends!

I hope you do take a minute to check out www.WhereTheMapEnds.com.

And be sure to visit the site on March 1 when I roll out the collaborative fiction project. Futuristic space-faring aliens are invading a fantasy world that has only swords and sorcery to defend itself. Come pick your side and help us write the story!

P.S. You can also check out my author site to see writing from my own published fiction: www.jeffersonscott.com.

P.P.S. Thanks again, Wayne!

Cool, Jeff. You have generously pulled together so many great resources for aspiring--and established--authors. I have a feeling that I'll be visiting often.

Josh said...

I think a number of the writers here would love to get in on the collaborative fiction project that will be posted March 1on:
www.WhereTheMapEnds.com

And remember guys, Jeff is an acquisitions editor of many years. If he spots your talent...

Hi Wayne-I linked you to my blog because I, um, purloined the picture of WTME that you have on your blog.

:P

Hope you are doing well!

pixydust said...

Yeah! March 1st the maddness begins. :)

Becky said...

Nice intro, Wayne. I'm trying to remember to tell people you're on the tour. Sorry I didn't get you added to the "changes." Hopefully enough places will get the message.

Oh, and for dial-up folks like me? The blue pill, baby! None of that waiting for book cover images, as far as I'm concerned!

;-)

Mr. B I jumped for joy when I read what you just wrote....
Another writing contest?! In March?? Oh goodness. I'm going bonkers....

Cheryl said...

Thanks, Cheryl! I'm very encouraged by www.WhereTheMapEnds.com and your Unseen Worlds and Becky's CWoF and so many others. Little by little, we are gaining ground for the King.

I really have enjoyed the fellowship of so many like-minded creative people.

amy said...

It's been an honor to be allowed to participate and be exposed to all these resources. Thanks to all who've contributed thus far! This aspiring author is thankful to God for bringing all of you and this environment to me.

Christopher Hopper said...

Yes...take the red pill!

And Wayne, there is this thing called a pick; it's used to strum guitar strings. And I hear one calling your name...

"Wayne..."

"Wayne......"

Well, I have to go work on Book III now. Not sure what you're going to do.

Oooh, Lord Batson - LISTEN TO CHRISTOPHER! Think of all the unhappy, unused picks just waiting, day after day, hoping that you will take one up in hand, and make music.

WayneThomasBatson said...

Must resist...Must--re--sist

everlastingscribe said...

*big sad eyes* think of the poor, silent guitar.. .

Brett said...

Geez....he writes...he can play music...the only question is...can he sing??? LOL

WayneThomasBatson said...

I sing…just not very well. LOL

amy said...

Anyone can sing; not everyone will sustain an audience. LOL! My shower and car are my concert halls. I get no complaints from them. I just know that as long as my listeners are inanimate objects, I'm safe and so are the eardrums of others. :P

Brett said...

My iPod is my greatest audience...it's also quite a good microphone :)

amy said...

Yeah Brett - just don't be that guy who sings in public while listening to his iPod with the headphones on. Nobody can possibly be on key then. It happens and it's scary...
