Hello all, from Deepest Darkest UK - I arrived on this forum by accident, but it's a good accident and I haven't been able to get away since. After looking through all the posts I've realised I know really very little about writing, publishing and self-publishing, and there's so much more to learn about my own writing too. I want to know more about the genre's I love (SF, dark fantasy and end-of-the-worldy-stuff), and even those I'm not fond of but could learn to love. I have so much I want to ask. And I ask questions. I ask lots of questions, so be warned. I can't wait to get started (please be gentle with me, I don't break easily, but I bruise like a peach!
