May 2015 – Quick roundup

What a great meeting. Thank you guys I really enjoyed catching up with everyone.

But we forgot to take a grelfie!

June meeting is early on Sunday 14th at Café Two Highland Reserve, Upper Coomera.

What have the Scifantorites been up to recently…
Brad has uploaded his book M.A.D.2 to Amazon.

Brett is aiming to complete the first draft of Miondor by June 30. Yeah Brett!!! He also spent some time on his pilot script for Area 51A.

David has been working on 2 pilot scripts. One is destined for the bottom draw and the other, “Straight Guys” is due for edit number 8. David has intentions of submitting this script to a Canadian production house and for competitions.

Kim has been editing book 1 and 2 of her trilogy while also endeavouring to complete the first draft of book 3. And June is going to be super busy with another 2 conventions. Some other good news for Kim is an invitation from Angus and Robertson to have a book signing at their Victoria Point bookshop. For more information, go to Kim’s Facebook page.

Zane is busy working on book 3 of his Miami PI series. When book 3 is ready he is going to relaunch all 3 books with new covers. If you are after more information go to Zane’s website.

Discussions today…
When do you use ‘who’ and when do you use ‘whom’?
There are lots of articles on the internet to assist people on how to determine the correct usage of ‘who’ and ‘whom’.
So in summary… Ask yourself if the answer to the question would be he or him?

    • Example: A suitable answer to the question, “To [who or whom] did the gift go?” is, “It went to him.” (It is improper to say “It went to he.”) The correct pronoun for the question is whom.
    • Example: A suitable answer to the question, “[Who or Whom] went to the shop?” is, “He went to the shop.” (It is improper to say “Him went to the shop.”) The correct pronoun for the question is who.

Apocalypse Weird…is a Post-Apocalyptic BookiVerse…way too hard to explain but really worth a visit to the website. The first introductory book, The Red King by Nick Cole is available for free from the site.

Next month’s Micro Fiction theme is “Birthdays or Shadow or Birthday Shadows or Shadow Birthdays”
