OK... I've got it looking pretty much how I want it... but it takes the doc up to 101 pages excluding the front cover... I'll keep working on it to get rid of that extra page...

here's mah blurb!! ;)

1.) Since I was a teenager off and on. Only really started writing about 5 years ago.
2.) Shonen is my favourite. Theres something about long ass stories that I enjoy. Action and fantasy are great fun too.
3.) in feb of 2014. It took me 3 years to consider that there's probably other people who write manga stories in their spare time so I set out to find them :P Turns out I pretty much hit the jackpot and found an awesome community.
4.) The usual: gaming, movies, writing (its a hobby but not sure to include in a book that we've written? its kinda obvious), going for a cheeky pint, football (COYG!), socialising and all that jazz
5.) hmmmm, a toss up between Lelouch Lamprouge and Shunsui Kyoraku...oh and Dutch from Black Lagoon!

Hey Lego! I submitted a story called Deformed a while back for the anthology. Is there still space for you to squeeze me in? And since editing won't begin until December can I submit a revised version by then?

Haha that was actually supposed to be December 2015. How far from completion is your story? Because there won't be much time to do a check again after Nair posts his blurb, but feel free to post man sure. 120 pages is still within range.

Okay, jumping back onto the horse again here:

1. How long have you been writing
Since I was about seven. Writing stories came a lot later, though.

2. What genres do you prefer to write
Sci-fi/fantasy adventure type stuff. Nothing too serious.

3. When did you join MR and how did you find it
Maybe five-ish years ago? My roommate was/is a mod. Wanted to see where he was spending so much time.

4. Hobbies
Hobbies? That sounds like something people with free time would have.

5. Favourite anime character
The loud guy. You know the one.

And with that we have the whole Anthology. Aozora, please get back to me on your story dude.

I'll officially start looking into Amazon now. I think I can assume that no one will have illustrations for their story? In any case, point out any last minute changes, otherwise fingers crossed for this getting out very soon!

Oh that was December 2015 haha. No problem dude. Then if possible you can just add the original version of my story
--->http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,13548.0.html

And as for the blurb:

1. I dipped my toe into writing when I was eleven years old with a series called The Adventures of Bob Gaga. I did this for a short while and then didn't get back into writing until only recently about maybe 2 years ago. 

2. I like to try my hand at any genre if possible. My favorite type of story to write though is one that leaves a lasting message or theme with the readers that could be applied in their lives.

3. I joined the wonderful community of MR about 2 years ago which is also when I started up writing again. I had joined harboring the "noobie" aspiration like many others of finding a manga artist and creating the next sensational manga with him/her. Of course, expectations are much more tempered and for now, the main focus is seeing if I can get a novel published.

4. My hobbies include basketball, tennis, chess, video games, movies, Risk/Monopoly, etc.

5. Favorite anime character is Gai Sensei!

hmmm, illustrations. What shall we do about that? Should we get a cover done? I was going to get some artwork done for mine, but if no one else is it would look odd :P

I think it's better we just go ahead to keep things uniform. The potential delay from requesting everyone looks for art will be too big to risk. Heck, i'd rather offer to draw something for everyone's story to be sure that it runs on time haha.

@Aozora I'll see how the story fits in the anthology when I get to my real work station. Please make sure it's spell checked at least so that things flow smoothly. I'm actually thinking this month may be the month if things go well
