Are you a Realmer?

Are you a Realmer? You are if you've joined the thriving Door Within Forums. It's been up for almost a year now, and a great many lasting friendships have been forged. See it's not just about the Door Within books. It's about community. People find a lot of people who read the same books, who think the same way, or have similar interests. And guess what happens? All kinds of conversation breaks out.

Conversation and creativity. Within the Door Within Forum are tons of sub forums, including the above Isle of Swords/Isle of Fire Forum. There's also a place for artistic fans to share artwork: hand-drawn or CG. There are several threads for writers where you can get amazing feedback on what you write. Who knows, you may even meet someone there who will one day publish your book. There are contests, games, quests, and yes, lots of discussion about most every topic under the sun. So if you're not already a Realmer, head on over and sign up.

Yes, Take Me to the Realm!

Oh, and speaking of cool artwork. Check out these sketches by FantasyPunkPrincess! Too Cool, eh?

Flin, Araken, Annessa, SW, V4C, and Elliot, thanks for entering the Realm in a whole new way! And welcome aboard Adherent!

Ian said...

Leave it to my school district to block your forum. I can't get on it. <_<

Oh well. The last thing I really need is for more forums to eat up my time...:P lol


Vivian Claire said...

I will soon become a Realmer. I have never commented on your blog before, m'lord, so I am new to you. But I just wanted to say that I love your books. I have read them a million times but they never become old. They only become more and more alive. That is what I love, when you read and you find something in the words that you have never seen before. *deep sigh*

The Writer said...

Nice artwork!

Now... can you please put some kind of update on your progress (word count or actual post)? Because it's been about a month.

WayneThomasBatson said...

Hi, Ian and Vivian

Thanks for coming by! Hope to see you in the Realm. Yeah, Firewalls are a pain, aren't they? Like the Stones of White Fire!

And writer, as per your request, the word count is updated. ;-)
