Peter, which pages are you refering to?

It's something that you can buy, so it's not something that only those lucky few who can get the book.

I don't know about the published authors, but I know I have that turned off for my own novels.  some words it auto corrects, but most of them you have to select which word exactly you want.  Also, I usually have it turned off so that it's not distracting me while I write, and instead I can focus on just getting the story pounded out.  If I take time to spell check I might lose a groove I'm in.

If I may, what the term may or may not have started out as, it has changed.  What I see it being used as now (and this is being seen from the ffs I read on Yes, I'm one of those people) is both.  Mary Sue in general seemed to be applied to characters who are too perfect (see: Bella in Breaking Dawn.  She has perfect control over her vampire lust, everyone loves her.  It's also those characters who always know what to say to solve a problem.)  Self-insertion is now the term used (at least in the ff community) for when an author inserts themselves.  If it's not a direct insert it's a self-inserted Mary Sue (ie -- I write myself in as Sarah's best friend in a Laby fanfic, but my name is Mi'chelle in the fic.  It's Jan, but I look like I look, and sound like I sound, act like I do, and come from my same background.)

So while it may have started out as the ST character (which, by the way Peter was cool to know) I think it has grown into something more.

I would, but I'm not sure if I should destroy his surprise.  After all, it's more fun if you really are surprised.

I'm on there but usually I sign in to video chat with Josh or else do shard business.  That program eats RAM for breakfast, I swear.

I found out last night that the surprise inside is very much worth it if you can get your hands on one...

Sadly, it is true.  Brandon was only under contract for the first four books, which is the end of the arch on how Al becomes famous.  He has sent in a proposal for the second half of the story (books five through... I don't remember how many there are in the second one.) but I don't know if they've approved it or not.

Dan Wells / Thank you Dan...

Yeah, we do.  Right now though we need to see when Chris is available...

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Alcatraz 4 cover?

I actually kind of like it.  I mean, Al doesn't look TOO photoshopped, he's actually wearing a green jacket, and... I just think it's better then the rest of them.

hee hee. good times, those. Making random people lose the game on the chalk board...
