For those of you who don’t know, (and that, I imagine is a good number. Unless you’re spying on me, in which case . . .bravo, my ninja seals will be speaking with you shortly).
I’m an aspiring author. Generally means I’m one of those schlubs who works on various writing projects for a good long while and never really gets any of them quite to publishing stage. Time will tell if I stay a schlub or actually get something out onto the market. But . . the point of me telling you this is because I want to mention a fact right off the bat. As one of my biggest inspirations, Orson Scott Card’s “Ender” and “Bean” series are right up there with Terry Pratchett’s writing. If I can end up writing something with half the depth of one of the Ender characters, or the Discworld, I will be . . . if not content, at least partially satisfied.
