    Aaaand I still haven't got The Son of Neptune... yet. I guess they still haven't sorted the packages yet, or whatever, since I'm living in a college dorm and they assign a mailbox for each of us... My book should be somewhere in the post office. XD Hopefully I'll get it before this weekend though. Then again, now is quite a busy moment so I'm kind of glad I still haven't got the package, or I'll be abandoning all my work. XP

    When do you plan on publishing part one? =D

    Not any time soon. I still have to finish the first draft, and I have massive changes and edits planned for future drafts. When I do finally finish, I have the choice of traditional publishing or self publishing. With traditional, I get a wider market, I'm assigned an editor, I need an agent, and I don't have to pay any money until after it's on shelves. If I go with self, I need at least $1000 (that's the cheapest package, the package I would aim for at West Bow Publishing is $4000), I wouldn't get as much publicity, and I'm in total control. Both have their pros and cons. I'll probably go with traditional, seeing as my money is slipping through my fingers quicker than water and I have no source of steady income. I did post the first five or so chapter at LucasForums. I provided a link in my first or second post in the club. I also managed to post up to chapter 13 here, but you'll have to go digging through threads I started; it's been deleted from the fan-fic sections. But I can assure you that the entire first draft will be online at either LucasForums or WritingForums. So basically, it's done when it's done.

    My brother finally finished The Red Pyramid, and now I'm reading it. I've been reading it for the past thirty minutes, and I'm on chapter six. Very interesting. It's started a lot like The Lightning Thief, making you ask a lot of questions before they're answered. I look forward to finishing it, alongside The Throne of Fire, and the final Kane book when it comes out next spring.

    Cooooooool. XD I kinda like the way how Riordan does that, in a sense. For one, it makes rereading the book has much more sense in it. He raises a lot of questions, and those are solved at the end of the book, but you only remember certain parts of those questions, notably the important ones. But when you reread the book and you notice all the weird dialogues they have, then only you notice the smaller details.... If you get what I mean. XD I might try reading the series during my winter break... Eh.

    On another note, I got The Son of Neptune. It arrived Tuesday, I think, but I only picked it up today. Since I have no classes tomorrow, I'm looking forward to really enjoying this weekend. And it's a hardcover book. I'm pretty sure I ordered a paperback one, but hey, no complaints. And the cost was only $11~, so I'm pretty hyper now. XD

    Oh anyway.

    Have you ever read a nonfiction book, just for leisure?
    Textbooks don't count. I have, a few. I forgot how long ago that was though. I think it's based on myths like Atlantic and the Aztec... And whatnot. the last nonfiction book I read was The Lady in The Tower, if I'm not mistaken. It's a story about the final days of Anne Boleyn. Even then, I only read that because I was supposed to do a nonfiction book review. XD

    Yes. All the time.


    And on a side note. I got ripped of with my copy of the Son of Neptune. There's an entire section upside down and out of order.

    The gist of it is finding faith and hope in a world that has none whatsoever. I can't really tell much else without spoiling anything. But I can tell that the story revolves around Demos Colonomos, Thais Xylander, Galen Kokinos, and Ebony Agapenas (Clarus in the first draft, something I changed for pattern consistency). Here's the first half of the first draft, unedited. If it doesn't show, here's the first five chapters, also unedited.

    Good luck with that, Darth. You have this future novelist's support.

    Sometimes I like to glance through my old almanac from a couple of years ago just because some of the statistics interest me. I've got this curious attraction to stats of any sort.

    Cold club?

    Well, I'm halfway through The Son of Neptune. Not exactly halfway, but eh. I want to both finish it as fast and as slow as possible. Fast because I want to know what would happen. Slow because the next book is not coming for another year. XD And I'm liking it so far. I like how the Roman system differs from the Greek. They even have colleges on camp. And Nico. :3

    Personally, I think The Sea of Monsters was good, but not the best book in the series. Hope you enjoy it.

    BOOK TITLE: The Red Pyramid
    AUTHOR: Rick Riordan
    AR POINTS: N/A
    SUMMARY: Siblings Carter and Sadie embark on a perilous adventure that was set in motion by their parents six years prior to the book's start. After a fateful night in the British Museum, their father, Julius, awoke the Egyptian gods from their slumber. Set, the god of storms, chaos, and the desert, kidnaps Julius, and plots to destroy the world with a single, mighty storm. Carter and Sadie, with the assistance of Bast the cat goddess and several other people and deities, must rescue their father, find Osiris, reestablish order, and evade the House of Life (which hunts them down like animals for a bizarre reason). Along the way, they discover that Set is not the greatest threat to the universe...

    How about a new topic then?

    Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what kind?
    Yes. But I don't listen to the music I normally listen to (various forms of Christian rock and metal) whilst reading, as the lyrics would get jumbled up in the text. Instead, I'll listen to video game and film soundtracks (as well as one TV show: Avatar).

    Not usually, but I do sometimes. I usually listen to whatever I'm into at the time, which is usually metal.

    Rarely so. I can never concentrate if I do that. Especially with articles that I have to read (for writing class, for example). Heck, when I'm reading articles for my writing class, even if I don't listen to music, it keeps playing inside my head. Then I can't concentrate. XD

    Books, that is. For discussion on forums or email, I usually listen to my playlist on my PC. If I found an article over the net, I'd stop the music.

    On another note, I'm nearly finished with The Son of Neptune. :3 It's kinda a long wait until the next fall for The Mark of Athena, but in the meantime I might start on The Kane Chronicles.

    Sometimes but I prefer not to. I usually listen to very theraputic music.

    Same here, but I don't have the lyrics problem, but I just prefer music without lyrics.
