founding members are blue boarders!

you can see the other post started by malinda as
the seedling for what it is today. please come visit
and join us for discussions as well as author interviews
including our very own elizabeth c. bunce as well
as tamora pierce and ellen jensen abbott are scheduled!

the beautiful header itself is by a blueboarder artist,
virginia allyn. that alone is worth the click over.  :love

that looks great! Some of the authors don't have pub dates next to their novels, does that mean they haven't sold yet? Just wondering...

Umm, Mike might take umbrage at being called a gorgeous, talented lady, but I'm sure he'll appreciate the sentiment intended.   :dr

HOLY POOP! Ur...uh, I just figured yuh know, with ladies ruling everything and all--even the household and fantasy--I just thought the Inkpot had no male members. *Slaps Head* Sorry Mike. I really am sorry. I guess I gotta tone down the testosterone. 

Well, the ladies are gorgeous and talented. The dudes are dudes--just there to wallow in their aura. Let's all have a laugh and join the Inkpot.  :moose

The Inkpot is for agented or published authors...our goal was to create a community along the same lines as Fangs, Fur, and Fey, but for MG and YA fantasy--a place for authors and readers to interact together about the types of books they both love.

Sorry, Prairiegirl--I should have clarified that it's authors of book-length fiction.  But we encourage writers working toward publication in YA and MG fantasy to become watchers and frequent commenters.  The membership requirements can be found here:  http://community.livejournal.com/enchantedinkpot/9105.html
