Some brief responses to Google queries from yesterday

Published by at 4:04 am under The Author-Audience Connection

  • How to request a review forum at Superhero Nation. Leave a comment anywhere.
  • Is Batman overpowered? Overawesome, certainly.
  • How long does a manuscript have to be? 80,000-100,000 words is pretty typical for an adult novel manuscript.  For more details, please see this.
  • Great presents for writers. Step 1: Cut a hole in a box…
  • Is Book Antiqua a good font for books? Personally, I feel it’s harder to read than comparable fonts.  BA letters are taller, so you will be hard-pressed to fit as much space between each line.  See this sample for more details.
  • Comic book villain who controls water that is a guy.  Hydro-Man?
  • kill a couple cops.”  Umm, what?
  • Killer squirrels. This?
  • Why are so many superhero stories set in cities? Because superheroes need lots of people to save, and cities have more violent crimes that threaten lots of people.  Most superhero stories have the heroes encounter crime whenever they go out on patrol, and that’s more believable in New York than New Hampshire.  Also, cityscapes tend to look cooler than small towns.
  • I am on fire and need writing advice. I’d recommend dealing with the on fire thing first.

    The link for the 80,000-100,000 words bit is broken.
