Plot Bunny Spam Comments

The spam-bots can get really interesting on a blog nowadays. While procrastinating from revising I decided to clear out the moderated spam caught by Akisment where I discovered these two gems:

You can definitely see your expertise within the paintings you write.


The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe.

I laughed at the first one. “Paintings you write”? My mind shouted, “Synesthesia!” One day I want to use synesthesia in a story. Just haven’t found the right one yet.

The second one… well, this is proof you can get story ideas from anywhere. When I mentioned it in Forward Motion chat, suddenly there were story ideas from a bunch of people! (As Grey put it: Writers: Getting Plotbunnies From Spam Comments!”)

  • “If we detect weakness in your writing, we will fire the proton cannons.”
  • “The secret writers’ consortium, of course. Oh, wait, I probably shouldn’t have mentioned them.”
  • “Evil oppressing alien overlords controlling the ‘sector’.”
  • “”If we detect weakness in your writing, we will fire the proton cannons.” It’s how they mention that you’re “not afraid to mention how [you] believe. It’s almost in a “We like an enemy who fights back” tone.”
  • “No, they’re a version of the Men in Black which descend on your domicile and all traces of your existence will instantly be wiped out. “
Yes, I came out of that one with ideas for stories. Like I need more than what I already have! Although, is it possible to have too many? Um, well, if one already has so many they wonder if they can ever write them all, then maybe yes.

Oddly enough, yes, we get a lot of writing done while in chat. Why do you ask? πŸ˜€

(As a note, all of the Children of Jad books now have new covers and are available in print!)

Children of Jad Omnibus

It all started with an ordinary day and ended with her life changed forever…

Finding remnants of an ancient crashed ship in a forest of the planet Jad may save Elvy Akuma’s father’s job at the Jad Cultural Center, but it could also restart the war between Human and Chion. Through the threat of pirates, Chion Warriors, treasure hunters and more, Elvy and her friends Tiver and Pelik must rely on each other to protect themselves, the heritage of Jad, and peace itself.

All while finding a piece of history that history forgot.

This Omnibus collects together the four “Children of Jad” novelettes at a bargain price, completing the entire story arc in one volume. The collection includes:
Glint of a Suncatcher
Glint of a Ring
Glint of an Artifact
Glint of a Tower
