Ann: Yes, TV tropes is ADDICTIVE! It’s a good way to find out what’s been done before with your current WIP. I actually did a blog post about that. 😀
Jani: Yes it’s nice to do the happy dance when you’re not on the List. But at the same time, I’ve actually commitd the Chosen One sin (and I am trying to subvert it) and Fae sin though, so if other people secretly have bitchy chicks and furry shifters, it’s all good too. 😀
Dawn: that’s actually why I keep mine animals too. I want to make it as realistic as possible. It’s magic, sure, but I really like to keep my magic as realistic as I can. 😀
Miranda: I second the October Daye. I actually haven’t read about a lot of fae, so they aren’t too much for me yet. I also second the crappy covers. I don’t know why the publishers think this is attractive to us at this point.
