Notes on the first update:

HarryMacDonald, I hope you don't mind that I didn't create genre categories for "anarchist" and
"visionary" yet. I'm not convinced I'd get more than one author showing up in those, so until I do...

EllenEkstrom, I remember you saying that some of these were released in print but your publisher switched to ebook only -- but which titles are which? Should I just list them all as ebook?

Since the list is still pretty short, I haven't divided it up between my placeholder messages yet. But I'm hoping it will get a lot longer. I know there are a lot more people hanging out here than have responded so far. :)

ETA:
Oh, and as you may have noticed I've been listing under (and alphabetizing by) username... since this is an in Hobnob about Hobnob list, I thought that would make recognizing participants easier.

11HarryMacDonald
Mar 10, 2013, 2:59pm Top

In re #10. No hard feelings at-all, though it's an interesting coincidence that there is another thread going right now devoted to anarchist fiction. So far about a half-dozen titles. Since this is your project, naturally it's up to you to lay down the rules. In self-protection, I do want you to know, however you end-up with categories, that I am reluctant ever to describle HARMONY JUNCTION only as "Christian fiction" simply because most of the latter-day writers in that genre have belched forth such swill that I am embarrassed, as a writer AND as a Christian, to be bracketted too closely with them.

11 > HarryMacDonald, I know there are anarchist books out there. I may even know someone besides you who writes books that could be so described. But I didn't remember anyone other than you here in Hobnob mentioning that they wrote any. Of course, I don't claim to read every message, and I've been away for a bit recently also, so if I missed someone saying that they did (or simply forgotten it), I'm sorry, and as soon as someone else lets me know they have a book that goes in that category I'll add it.

I was pretty sure I remembered someone else here mentioning that they wrote Christian Fiction, which is why I made that a group even though it only had one entry -- although maybe I remembered wrong since nobody else has listed any yet. :(

And I very cleverly combined Plays with Poetry so I'd be sure of getting multiple listings there. :D

I guess I just don't see the point in groups of one book only, unless that book has nowhere else to be listed. I hadn't planned to make a graphic novel group until someone besides me turned up claiming to have written one of those either.

I can fully understand your reluctance to describe your book as only "Christian Fiction". Personally I like having books listed in all the genres that apply, a science fiction murder mystery is still a murder mystery and if I'm in the mood for a murder mystery, I don't know why it being science fiction would stop me from enjoying it -- I like science fiction too. BUT, it might not be what someone who doesn't 'get' science fiction is looking for. That's why I have been including all the genres in the book listings. I'm sure that people who are writing Historical Fantasy would feel uncomfortable if I just listed their books as Historical Fiction with no qualifiers, as well.

Anyway, if there's some other kind of disclaimer you'd like, or if you just want me to take it out of that group entirely, let me know.

13 > Thanks, Ellen!

12 > Joannasephine -- If it's the sort of editing where your name is on the cover bigger than anyone else's then yes, I do want it listed. But if its the sort of editing where your name never ends up on the cover at all, then no, I don't think it belongs. Anything in-between is a judgement call. But basically, I guess the question is "Is it reasonable for the Hobnob participant's name to be listed as the 'primary author'?"

I would also prefer not to include stand alone short stories/novellas, single poems or... in the case of a couple of my own "contributor" works, songs. Not because I don't think they are valid works, but just because I'm afraid if I did allow that kind of thing the list would quickly get so long and unwieldy nobody would want to look through it.

Although....

Maybe I could add a section for "UNCOLLECTED SHORT WORKS (see author page for details)" that instead of listing each work separately, just mentions which of us have authored what type of short work. So my listing would say: LShelby - Short Fiction (YA, science fiction, mystery), Non-fiction (RPG), Songs (Filk). Does that seem reasonable?

I've co-edited two poetry anthologies and been single editor on three others, so "edited by Joanna Preston" was the only attribution on the covers. The first two were anthologies of work from particular writers' groups. The latter three were annual competition anthologies. Info below, and I leave it up to you whether you include them or not. All poetry.

"Half light and High Wind", edited by Lynn Tara Austin, Helen Bascand and Joanna Preston (poetry: paperback only).

"listening to the rain", edited by Cyril Childs and Joanna Preston (poetry: paperback only).

"A Savage Gathering", edited by Joanna Preston (poetry: paperback only).

I added a place for summarizing short works at the bottom of part four. So anyone who has written short stuff that isn't already listed as part of a "book by you" please make up a little listing like the one I wrote for me, so I can add it.

>21 PaulaCappa: Pcappa, You didn't say what genre, but it sounded like fantasy to me -- or maybe horror, so that's where I put it. I hope that's okay.

>20 oldstick: oldstick, I added "Family Fiction" to the first post, but I can't say it's a term I've run into before. What does it mean exactly?

>19 ABVR: ABVD, "it's fascinating to see the list emerging!"

I agree. :)

REF.#20.Hi there, I know there isn't a genre that is called 'family fiction' but I wanted to show what kind of general fiction my stories were. They aren't chicklit or thrillers and have only a smattering of humour and I refuse to call them emoporn. They might fit in the 'saga' category except the main characters change and sagas usually have one main character. I was trying to suggest that the books were both about family life and appropriate for all ages. They are both sensitive and mildly political with both adventure and relationships. What would you call them? ( Ask Esta)

Despite not having read oldstick's work, I am sympathetic to the idea of a Family Fiction rubrick, based on what she and Esta have posted. I would be proud to have my big opus called that, as it certainly does track the comings and going of three generations of one family. I suspect that some of our other pals' work wiould fit tidily under that heading likewise. This urge to categorize: do I see the Dark Spectre of Librarianship in LShelby's past?

32LShelby

> 28 DABlankinship, I didn't want to leave short works out, but I'm worried that if I add short fiction and articles, and so forth to the list as individual titles, it will get too unwieldy. So, unless any of these are a whole dissertation worth of text, I think they should probably go into the final "short works summary" category.

Based on what you posted, I'm thinking your entry should look something like:

DABlankinship - Nonfiction (16 scholarly articles -see list- mostly on the sociology of military families; printed in juried publications)

And then I'll link the text 'see list' to message 28 where you posted the complete list. Does that work for you? Any wording you'd like to fix before I actually add it?

>25 zette: zette, I meant to ask you about the subject of length also. When I copied your list up, I just copied it as you gave it to me, because I kept getting interrupted in the middle, so I wanted to make sure at least that much got done. But if there is anything novella length or shorter that ended up in the main list, I'd like to move it into the short works summary along with your short stories. Also, you didn't say which, if any, of your works are available in print.

>29 oldstick: oldstick, I have no idea what else to call your stories. "Family Fiction" seems as good a name as any. :)

I'll add HarryMacDonald's book to that category too, since he thinks it belongs there.

Hmm... and maybe I should add a link from the category listing in my index to your explanation so other people who are going 'hunh?' can find out what it means.

>30 Esta1923: "This urge to categorize: do I see the Dark Spectre of Librarianship in LShelby's past?"

Nope. I don't categorize because I have been a librarian. I just do it because I like to. :)

I've been thinking about this short works thing, and I believe I've come up with a better way to handle it.

I'll continue to use a condensed summary, but I'll do one for each category involved. So the one line entry about DABlankinship's scholarly articles will appear in the non-fiction section along with all the other non-fiction, and the one line entry about zette's short stories will appear in the fantasy section along with her other fantasy stories.

I think that will make those entries more meaningful to people browsing the list than just shoving everything short into a group together at the end would.

ETA:
I went to make the changes described above and only then realized that my own published short works fall into more genres than I have short works published, and I felt too guilty about that to actually add any of my listings to all those spots on the list.

But for normal authors, who tend to write only in two or three different genres, I think it works better.

Touchstones -- put a single pair of square brackets around the name of books, and double square brackets around the names of authors. If there are multiple books with that title or similar, you'll see a suggested match to the right of the message box. If it's the right book, do nothing. Otherwise, click the link saying " others", and scroll down the list until you find the right one. It used to be possible to force the touchstone by using two colons and the LT work number, but I tihink that's changed now.

Thanks for that. The books are all available on kindle as ebooks. Most of them are on Smashwards as well as ebooks and when the last have come off Select they all will be. And two of them, Maverick and Alien Caller are in the process of becoming paperbacks as well through CreateSpace.

And I'm not sure what that last comment is about, but I am a LT author as far as I know and only two of the books could be regarded as shorter works, and two are novellas.

#37 LShelby, I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough. ^-^; My works aren't present in LT's database at all because no one's added them yet. I'm not entirely comfortable adding them to my own library. It feels so... spammy and pretentious, even though I'm also listing other books by other authors. (I'm trying to stick to adding some of my favourites for now.) Hence asking for suggestions. ^-^

Anyway!

lynnoconnacht (Lynn E. O'Connacht) - The Witch and the Changeling (Children's Fantasy, ebook)
lynnoconnacht (Lynn E. O'Connacht) - The Swan Maiden (YA/Children's Fantasy, ebook)

That should be formatted similarly to the other entries except for linkage... *looks the list over a few time* Didn't you have a separate section for short works earlier? I can't seem to find it. >>

Smashwords only does ebooks as far as I'm aware, yes, to answer your question in #41. At least I haven't heard anything about them starting to offer print.

43HarryMacDonald
Mar 15, 2013, 6:07pm Top

In re #42. A modest proposal, lynn, based on stuff of which you may presently be unaware. Your modesty is praiseworthy, no doubt about it. By all means keep cataloguing BOTH your own productions AND those of others. What often happens is that people don't even bother cataloguing before jumping into any number of LT Groups, and wasting everybody's time with shameless self-promotion. There has been considerable discussion on LT on how to deal with this, but in the mean time you are certainly the best bibliographical source for your own writing, so why hide your lamp under a bushel? Glad to have you on board!

44LShelby
Mar 15, 2013, 10:59pm Top

>42 lynnoconnacht: lynnoconnacht, yes I did have a separate section for short fiction, but I decided that I liked having short fiction placed in the genre lists better. I thought it made more sense to have all the authors who write fantasy, for example, listed together, whether their works were short or long.

I'm sort of inventing my classification system as I go, you see.

The short fiction entries are supposed to look different, though, because I wanted to roll up all of an author's short fiction in each category into one line as a space saving device. So if the works you listed are novellas, for example, than I would list them in YA/Childrens' and then again in fantasy as:

lynnoconnacht (Lynn E. O'Connacht) - 2 novellas -see list- (YA Children's, fantasy; ebook)

...Except that one doesn't usually consider children's fiction as "short" unless its even shorter than a novella. So I'm just going to add them as separate titles for now, and if they really are short even for the children's category, you can let me know, okay?

As for the spammy bit... I understand where you are coming from. It really doesn't make your library look particularly "spammy" as long as you have significantly more books by other people listed than you do of your own. Really. It doesn't.

...It's an author page where the author is the only one who lists their own works that tends to give that impression a bit. ::sigh::

But I think Harry MacDonald has a point too. If you add your own book, at least one "edition" on LT will have accurate data. This is a good thing.

Personally I gave in to the dark side a while back. Other people were already listing both the anthology I was published in, and magazines I was published in. But I had been published under two different names, and there was this bug that prevented the combining of names single author unless they were "main author" names. So I added some of my unpublished books to my library, just so that I could combine both my names together. And then when I went to delete those books afterward I couldn't bear to.

They may be unpublished, but they are still real books. They have covers, dimensions, take up space on my shelf, and are just as much a part of my personal library as any of the other books I own. Those entries, whatever my reason for making them, were good data. It seemed wrong to remove them from the database, just because they were mine.

Sorry my poor writing. All are ebooks on Smashwords as well as kindle. But as of today one - Maverick is at least a paperback as the proof arrived in the mail this morning. Yee-hah!!!

As to the shorter works. Genesis and The End are both longish short stories, around 20k or so. The two Wizard at Law's are novellas at 40k. The rest are novels ranging from just under 100k to 250k.

I've tried to start up a discussion on authors adding their own books to their libraries (or not) here, so my sort-of response to everyone is there too, but here I just want to thank you all for responding. You've certainly given me more to mull over than I'd initially realised. ^-^

LShelby, both my publications are short stories, so they definitely qualify as 'short' even for children's fiction. ^-^ I'm glad I wasn't imagining the short fiction section too. I liked the idea of it, but I do like this method better personally. It's easier to find what you're interested in. ^-^ With the formatting differences, it'll also be easier to separate out again later if necessary too, right? (Say, if we get too many one-line short fiction entries compared to the novels.)

> 45, Pshychotik Thank you very much for the clarifications! Be sure to let me know when that other paperback is finalized so I can update your entry. BTW, LT seems to think that Alien Caller is titled "Alien" without the "Caller", you might want to fix that?

>46 GaryBabb: GaryBabb. Do with it?

I originally wanted it because I finally have an ebook reader and I was hoping to start picking up books by people in the group... only finding out who all had written what all was being a real bear. (A problem I have now solved for myself ::smug look:: )

Other than that, I really just planned to have it here. This is where the people who are likely to be interested in it hang out, isn't it?

And I don't expect to ever be finished with it. This sort of project requires constant updates. But I've been hanging around LT for over five years now, I think, I'll probably be around for a good while longer. And after the initial effort of putting it together, updating it probably won't take more than a few minutes a week.

>48 NineTiger: NineTiger, I ended up splitting part two into subsections because it was getting a bit unwieldy as one. So which section do you want your fiction in: fantasy, science fiction or other speculative fiction. You can pick two if you can't decide. Also, what formats are they all available in?

>53 Psychotick:, Psychotick, the title was showing as just "Alien" on the work page. LT tracks both individual books (what you put in your library) and an aggregate version: the conceptual "work" (ie the story itself), independent of any particular physical expression. This is what I see when I click on the touchstone: I don't see your copy in your library, I see the aggregate version. (Those who have a copy, see their copy plus the extra stuff that only exists as part of the work, like the "common knowledge" section, everyone else just sees the aggregate "work".)

On the aggregate version the title was incorrect.

But you don't need to worry about it. Your reply made it clear that the problem wasn't in your catalog, so I went and fixed the work page myself this morning. :)

Everyone,
Some of the touchstones are not "sticking" properly, and when I edit that list again they change to link to the wrong books. As the list gets longer it's harder for me to notice that this has happened and figure out which books are the ones that have gone wrong. So if you notice any books (or authors) in the main list aren't properly linked, please point out the problems to me.

Once I know which books are misbehaving, I can fix them by adding the work number to the touchstone. Easy to do if I know it's needed. :)

If it makes you feel less lonely, I have published a mystery -- but it's only short story length, and since it's also science fiction, and YA (at least that's what the anthology it appeared in was marketed as), I haven't added it to the list. Listing one lone short story in three places seemed like an unfair use of space.

Because I don't have a humor listing yet. And although I'd love to have one, I'd also sort of like for there to be another book to put in it first.

#61 Slush Pile Inspector is set in modern day mostly in Savannah, Georgia, some in New York City, some in Florida, some in Texas while a person forced to become a literary agent reveals adventures in the publishing industry and politics. Tango Boat Dancers is set prior to World War II in Germany at first and then in Annapolis, Maryland (U.S. Naval Academy) and finally in Key West, Florida. (Humor)

Yes, each contains some fantasy and some science fiction. They're all available as ebooks (currently only as mobi from Amazon, or EPUB from me). They're all listed on LibraryThing, but I couldn't manage to get the touchstones to work for them all. (They're all also free at one or more points this summer).

I have created a new Humor category. If you think one of the books that you have already listed belongs in that category as well, let me know. Right now I've got one book by stephengoldin and two by belltooter in there.

>77 stephengoldin: Okay I think I have them all, but you might want to double-check your touchstones to make sure they're all going to the right places. Also, are these available both in print and ebook, or just ebook?

>78 LShelby: Thanks for your hard work, LShelby. All the touchstones there work properly except I couldn't get one for Polly! When I tried, I got a whole long list of books, none of which was mine. How can I go about adding mine to the reference list?

The Alien Condition and Trek to Madworld are paperback only. The Business of Being a Writer is only in paper, but excerpts have been e-published. Angel in Black is only available as an ebook. All the other titles are available in both paper and ebooks.

Hope that helps.

>79 stephengoldin: Oops. I phrased my request really poorly.

It doesn't matter if the touchstones are working properly in the list of books people give me, because I can't copy touchstones when I transfer their titles into the main list. I have to create them all over again. So what I really wanted was you to check the touchstones I made for your books as they appeared in the main list. Sorry!

But I'm pretty sure you will find that the touchstone for Polly! is working there. :)

So you know how to do it in case you want a Polly! touchstone anywhere else: If a touchstone can't be found on the list of "others" you can use a technique called "touchstone forcing" to create it. What you do is you insert the book's "work number" in front of the title of the book inside the square brackets, and then you separate it from the title with two colons. Like so...

>80 LShelby: Thanks so much for the tech tip. I'll keep that in mind for the future

One of the touchstones you made came out wrong: Angel in Black. When I tried it just now and clicked on (others), my title came up second on the suggestions list.

Thanks for all the work you did. I know my bibliography is kinda long.

Also, there doesn't seem to be a listing of your book anywhere on LT. If you decide to add a copy of it to your library ever, let me know so that I can put in a touchstone in for it. Okay? :)

Thanks for listing my books but LT does have a cover picture for The Third Lane which seems to be missing.

94LShelby
Oct 20, 2013, 9:37am Top

I don't know why the cover of The Third Lane doesn't show up, but it has nothing to do with me or my lists.

My best guess for what's happening, is that of the three copies listed on LT, only one has chosen that cover... that would make the generic cover the one that is winning the "most popular" contest that determines which cover gets shown for the work. If that's true, the only way I can think to fix it would be to contact the other two people with the book and let them know that a cover is now available for it, and hope they change to it.

Max_China, I added your book, but I don't know what formats its available in. Kindle, Epub, paperback?

LynetteWillows, I added your book too, but it looks like there is probably a problem with your book entry. Is your book by just you using two names, or is it by two different people?

Because if you and Carley aren't the same person, then you each ought to have your own author page.

I can tell you how to change your book so that it shows two authors, instead of one author named "Carley Bauerly & Lynette Willows". Or I can just go and fix the "work" page so that it's fixed for everyone else, while still leaving your own individual book entry as it is. (I would have done that already, actually, except that I wanted to check that it wasn't a "two names, one author" situation, which has been known to happen, although it's pretty rare.)

What I can't do anything about, is the fact that you've claimed that the combined name author page as you. That would have to be handled between you and the LibraryThing staff.

LynetteWillows, I read your Author Introduction today, and since it said "co-authored" and that you wrote stuff on your own under a different name, I went ahead and split you and Carly into two different authors.

As I did so, I discovered that another LT member owns a copy of your book, as both your copy and her copy now appeared on the Carley Bauer page. I told LT that they were the same "work", and so now both copies appear on the Lynette Willows page as well.

But because of my meddling, nothing now appears on the "Carly Bauer & Lynette Willows" author page.

The Brothers Cro-Magnon: Action/Adventure, Thriller. The book is imaginative and ambitious, fusing the prehistoric to contemporary biology and futuristic science. It is a thrilling Siberian Arctic adventure with a strong female lead, a heroine's quest.

When Ice Ran Red: Thriller, Military Fiction. This book is a World War One adventure with a strong female lead, a hero's quest. An Italian-American woman's struggle to survive brings 1917 and the war in the Italian Alps to life.

Davide: Fantasy, Magical Realism. An atheist philosopher who offended modern Muslims by publishing a book comparing their religious fervor to that of medieval Christians, gets a mind blowing shock from a bolt of lightning on Assisi's Mt. Subasio when he comes to Italy, hoping to escape the media spotlight. A strange woman rescues him, and gives him the St. Francis power of communing with birds and animals. Besieged by the paparazzi, aware that he's under the spell of a mischievous angel, he struggles to deal with a huge change in his life.
