Erik, any advice on how to break in with an entirely new setting? I love the Realms, but don't really have any stories for it (at least not ATM). But I'd LOVE to introduce folks to the world I've been using as my sandbox for several years now, if I could just get it out there.

Alystra,

Well what you really have to do is write the book, then publish it. As to *how* to do that . . . honestly, everyone's path to publication is different. I think for the most part, getting published is a crapshoot--you've got to keep trying until you get lucky. I can only give a few general guidelines that are helpful to keep in mind:

1) Be the writer: None of this fledgling/aspiring writer crap. If you write, you ARE a writer--it's just a matter of how many publishing credits you have, and you're in the business of getting more. It's obvious why you're a writer: you write because you can, because you like to, and because you HAVE to. If those three reasons aren't there for you, then you're in the wrong business, because writing will break your heart a thousand ways to Sunday. You've got to keep trying, keep believing in yourself, and keep working at it. Because eventually you'll figure it out.

2) Be irresistible: Be a nice, respectful person. Socialize and interact with people. Go on panels. Publish lots of short stories. GET KNOWN. Your writing talent carries you a certain distance, but your facility with communication and with socializing carries you farther. Be respectful to agents, and follow their guidelines to the letter.

3) Be unstoppable: You will run into a lot of rejection, and a lot of just "ignored" results. Push past that urge to give up. Follow your instincts. Don't be afraid to make mistakes, because you then get the chance to learn from them. Think unstoppable juggernaut: Keep pushing. Keep writing. Keep going.

I've also posted a guide to writing and publishing your book, which might be helpful as well: http://eriksdb.livejournal.com/218027.html

Cheers

Well, I've got the first part down- I write because I can't NOT write. I guess what I'm really asking is how I would break in with a D&D related setting specifically. Any advice based on how you did it? Did you already have something out when you first got into FR? And did you approach WotC first, or did they come to you? Things like this are what I'm interested in. I have several tales already in various stages of progress- one about two-thirds, one nearly finished, and three more started- so how would someone get into that market specifically?

Also, would you recommend using an agent? Why or why not?

Incidentally, I've looked into self-publishing, and it doesn't seem cost-effective for someone just starting who doesn't have the income to spare on expensive packages. How would you recommend submitting something to WotC or Paizo?

I have no particular tricks as to how you would go about breaking into WotC. I did it through a blind submission and through the Maiden of Pain open call back in 2003 (or whatever year that was)--I don't think WotC is actively looking for new authors, but you never know.

They do have writer's guidelines: http://wizards.com/dnd/Article.aspx?x=dnd/writersguidelines

Basically what I sent to them was a 10 page sample and a cover letter, though they want something more than that these days.

As for an agent . . . an agent can open lots of doors for you, but one can be hard to acquire. Myself, I just signed an agent this last year, and I sold my first novel in 2003. That was through WotC, however, which didn't require an agent. It's probably a better bet than navigating the various slush piles at publishing houses.

Here's my suggestion: pick whichever of those novel works in progress you like the best--the one that's most true to who you are as a writer--and finish it. Then get yourself a copy of the Novel and Short Story Writer's Market 2011 (or 2012, if it's out yet) and start picking out agents and publishers to submit to. Formulate a really killer cover letter (here's a good guide from my own agent, Andy Zack: http://www.zackcompany.com/images/stories/theperfectpitch.pdf). Try both agents and publishers. And good luck!

Cheers

Shadowbane announcement:

The cover art for my next FR novel is up, as is a product description and some notes from me about where the novel falls in the cosmology of FR, as well as some of my influences going into it.

Shadowbane at Amazon

(And maybe preorder it while you're there? I mean, it's just so gosh-darn convenient. )

Cheers

that will happen when Candlekeep sees the liught of Amuanator and shines in his light.
then Ogmha will smile and grant his blessings tp the site.

and then those who commits viles acts will hide in fear as Shadowbane takes his place as the patron of vigilantes.

btw ERik, have any FR plans after shadowbane??

I am currently writing the *next* FR novel, which builds on the events of Shadowbane. (No spoilers about who survives and who doesn't!)

Keep track of my writing progress by following me on twitter (@erikscottdebie) or find me on facebook, upon which I have both an author page and a personal page (both Erik Scott de Bie).

Cheers

I never tire of hearing this.

Plus, it's got Luskan too. Woot!

So i finally finished Downshadow. And i thoroughly enjoyed it. I must admit i got a certain Greenwood'esque feeling when reading about Waterdeep again. Especially the revels, gossip and that truly hilarious scene with the ladies Roaringhorn and Wildfire. Not to mention that particularly...amorous and funny moment involving a closet, a totally misplaced and goofy paladin and three wonderful women. All the wonderful tidbits of lore you managed to cram into that novel thrilled me completely

What hints (if any) can you give us about Shadowbane? Luskan will be amazing to read about again, can't wait!

Thanks for the kind words, and I'm sincerely glad you enjoyed the book. It was definitely my intention to evoke that Greenwood-esque vibe, whilst still making the story my own. I certainly had a great time writing it.

That particular scene is Ed's personal favorite.

Well, there's the info on the Amazon page (see slightly above in the posts for a link).

The novel wears three hats, basically. On the one hand, it is of course a sequel to Downshadow, continuing the story of a couple of the characters there (one in particular, obviously!). On another, it's an Abyssal Plague novel, connecting to that over-arching event, so reading it in the context of the other books in that series will enrich the experience. And lastly, it's sort of a stand-alone--i.e., I sincerely think you don't have to have read anything else to understand and enjoy it.

There are of course easter eggs waiting for those deeply familiar with the Realms. Shadowbane also makes a clear transition into my next FR book, which I'm writing now (31,000 words into it). Set in Westgate.

Cheers

Ah nice! About time Westgate got more love. The last Westgate-based novel i read must have been Masquerades. A long time ago

Would that be the 2012 release being hinted at earlier?

That is indeed the hint. I don't have a firm release date, but I think it'll be 2012.

Also another teaser about Shadowbane: This book, more than anything else I've written so far, allowed me to indulge my philosophy side a little bit. Not in a way that drives the plot or is distracting, but it was fun.

Cheers

I'm intrigued by this, Erik. Are you talking about real-world philosophical concepts here, or re-interpreting them for the Realms?

Either way, my interest is piqued. Philosophy is a passion of mine.

This should be an *awesome* anthology. Joint-edited by Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood, and such an awesome subject? Sold!!!

Also, I'm very happy to have the last spot. I'm pleased with how the story turned out, and it definitely leaves the anthology on a particular note.

Fun fact: this story actually ties into my forthcoming non-WotC novel. More on that later.

Cheers

I did note that your story was "the anchor"....many a times I will readr the last first in an anthology, expecting it to be the strongest work.

I heard a little mouse whispering somewhere that you may have some tie in..... very cool to hear it from you. Is this novel the formerly named Whisper? (or did I mis-remember that project's name?)

I don't know, Todd McCaffrey, Shannon Page & Jay Lake, Jim Hines are on that list, not to mention Ed, Brian, and Rosemary. I am seriously wowed by the sheer mass of talent here.

It does indeed tie into a novel I have written and am in the process of publishing, which is not exactly the novel formerly known as Whisper, but is thematically connected.

Well too bad for then that I have such high expectations for you, that I would be in no way surprised if your story ends up being the strongest. If you had started out weaker....you wouldnt have to bear such things

Hey ERik, have you seen the 4e shadow dancer??

If you have does it resemble the Shadowdancer of old??

(yeah I want to know if it would even be worth to stop and look at the book becuase of it and the living vampire race... and most the shadow dancer and its all your fault Fox at Twilight)

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

Unlike sage, I am more intrigued by THIS then anything else... how is that possible?

Of course, my interest lies within a sphere best left undisturbed, but still, I can't wait to see how you pull this one off.

BTW, I am going away to Kentucky for a week (going to be cementing my plans for Gencon - going with a great group), and while looking through all of my paperbacks trying to find something to read on the trip, I realized I haven't re-read Ghostwalker, which now gets the (dubious) honor of traveling with me to Kentucky.

Of course, if I happen to leave it where others in the Scify/fantasy/RPG club can see it, and ask about it, so much the better.
