Posted by:q_sama.

Mood: accomplished.
~~crossposted in my livejournal (sorry, those on my friends list)~~

Follow these links and it'll take you to a series of livejournal entries I've backdated. Or, you could simply go to my userinfo, click on my memories, and read the ones filed under "Tamora Pierce."

Note that typos are mine, but I've made a direct transcript, meaning that I don't clean up Tammy's stuttering or "Ummm"s or anything. I've written everything I hear on the tape.

Introduction and Questions 1 & 2

The questions adressed in this section are:
+ Can I record this session?
+ Can we take pictures?
+ What happens between Daine and Numair (NEW INFORMATION!)
+ Do Daine and Numair get married?

Questions 3 & 4

The questions in this section are:
+ How do you pronounce Alan? (a-LAHN or AL-an)
+ Where do you get ideas for your names?

Questions 5, 6, 7, & 8

The questions in this section are:
+ Are Aly & Nawat going to get together, even though he's a crow?
+ Why did Buri leave the Riders when she married Raoul?
+ Where did you get the idea for girl heroes in general?
(note: Tammy rambles a LOT in this last question - v. interesting things!!)
+ Why did you create Briar, if your emphasis is on girls?

Questions 9, 10, & 11

The questions in this section are:
+ Will Varice be in the Numair-book?
+ Which was your favorite/least favorite book to write? (NEW INFORMATION)
+ Why did Leaf have to die? (NEW INFORMATION)

Questions 12 & 13

The questions in this section are:
+ Who would you recommend as publishing companies?
+ What was your favorite fantasy book growing up? (v. interesting for a Pierce vs. Tolkien assessment!)

Questions 14, 15, 16, & 17

The questions in this section are:
+ Where did you get the idea for Ben Ladradun?
+ Do you have a say in the cover art for you books?
+ Where did you get the idea for crystal-coated coal?
+ Where did you get the idea for Joren?

Questions 18, 19, & 20

The questions in this section are:
+ Where did you come up with the shikusen?
+ How do you keep your plots from repeating themselves?

Yippeee! I got my order in from Barnes&Noble.com--the first three books of the Song of the Lioness, paperback "Borzoi Sprinter" editions (the first paperback ed. that was released in '83). This is so cool. It's like reading them for the first time all over again, since this was the first edition I ever read. :)

Man, these are great. (but once I get the new hardcover reprints, I'm going to have three full sets. Eep.)

If you're doing a post with spoilers for Lady Knight [I'm assuming all of us have pretty much read the other ones?], PLEASE mark the title with the word "spoiler" or "information revealed" or something, 'kay? That'll save those of us who are getting comments emailed to us . . . I seriously do not want to know who Kel gets with at the end of the book and I'm having a terrible, exhausting sophomore year so far and have literally NO TIME to even read four pages.

Okay? XD Thank you.

I finally got my Lady Knight book! I went out yesterday to get it (where I was picked up by a bunch of straglers, but that's another story. ::grins::) and I found it and I've skimmed it. I haven't read it yet; I skimmed. How bad am I? ::innocent look::

But people are right: Tammy should have been allowed 60 or so more pages to fully wrap it up, no?

Hey all!

Well, we've got a new member [q_sama] and a new book . . . how many of you have finished Lady Knight already? [Subquestion: how many of you want to marry Dom already? ^^] Actually, truth be told, I haven't had a chance to read at ALL, even though my best friend's mother just published a book and I'm dying to spend hours lost in it.

I digress. At any rate, feel free to discuss anything Tammy-related or Club-related [hence tammyclub! ^^] -- like, for example, what you think of the website of the Official! Tamora Pierce Roleplaying and Fan Club, your new design for this LiveJournal, or any club issues you want to write a few words about.

Since I'm extremely exhausted and overextended [and complaining, I know ^^], that's all I'm going to say right now, but I'm sure you're glad I'm not cluttering up your friends pages, right? Speaking of friends pages, if you know anyone who needs to be poked into adding this community to their friends list, please do so at once. Thank you. ;)

I just wanted to post quickly to respectfully request that everybody add this community to your friends list -- yes, that means all of you. This will ensure that you stay updated. Okay? Okay. ;) Good.


And Lady Knight is now out -- rah, rah, I'm sure we're all loving it. :) If anyone feels like creating a LiveJournal theme on it, feel free to do so. Below are a couple of LiveJournal reference pages that should help you out . . . the book cover images come off of Amazon.com. Fun. :P If you actually do this, you can just post the colors here and I'll add them in.

Hey, also, guys -- did any of you see those fancy new editions of the SotL books? WOW. I was floored, despite the fact that I hated the artwork. [I never take myself too seriously with that, anyway; I almost always hate artwork.] I'm just gobsmacked and glad that Alanna's finally got good hardback editions. :)

By the way, did you *SEE* the cover of Lady Knight on Tammy's website??! AAAAAAAAAAH! THEY'RE SO CLOSE! IT'S COMING OUT IN MAY! *wild screams ensue*

I wanted to let everybody know that Kathy [dewidevil] and I have been putting our heads together over a new project for the website that should encourage everybody to RP. It's a brilliant brainchild of hers, and since Sara [shabonmerc] is too busy to be updating the website anymore, I'm thinking of moving it to spoinky.net and totally revamping it there.

That way, we'd have the new website, and we wouldn't have to be on sucky Geocities. What do you all think? Any suggestions? Comments? Questions? Flying tomatoes? =P

Mood: worried.
I uploaded a userpic [finally -- sorry it's taken me so long!] and changed the colors around a bit. How do you think it looks now? Suggestions?

dewidevil and I have been talking about what a shame it is that nobody reads the newsletter, and discussing possible solutions/alternatives with moonlighteve, seeing as how I can't access the AOL message boards and all. =) The world is a confusing place. Butyeah. Ideas and positive energy concerning that problem are welcome as well.

Hm... Ideas? Why don't you use colors schemes from each of the novels and rotate them everyonce in a while? Eh? Sound good? Thought so.

Well, I can officially open this journal for posting now . . . a new extension of the Official! Tamora Pierce Fan and Roleplaying Club is in session!

Please, if you know any other Tammyclub members who are also LiveJournallers, let me know so I can add them. [ They can't just freely join because I'm restricting membership; don't want any non-members to join! ^^ Gah, I sound like such an elitist. But you know what I mean. ]

Any suggestions for the journal style would also be appreciated -- I realize that this is rather slapdash. =P
