As a fantasy junkie, I get a kick out of all the different species, their histories, and cultures that dwell, war, and love with this genre. I love it plain and simple. The book I am working on has no straight up humans. In many ways I want to push the boundaries of what is 'humanity' vs 'being human' if that makes any sense for my characters. Something alien to us, but something we can still connect with to a degree. I know the idea is viable because I am a nut and I love the concept however, loving the concept and people to connecting to it are two different things. By the way, they are humanoid in appearance if that helps. Thoughts???
