Hello to the Litopia community. I have read Agent Pete's membership caveats and any person who mentions the ad hominem fallacy has my vote. I am a reasonably active member of one or two Facebook interest groups but they are indeed very large and from time to time the trolls appear. My interest was drawn to Litopia by the offer of a free seminar, and here I am, on the other side of the sign-up process. I am probably too late to be taken into the seminar, but that does not matter at all. Perhaps there will be other opportunities later. My interests are: (a) to complete my third science fiction novel and (b) to become more adroit in online marketing. I live in Western Australia and am a member of two local writers' groups. Thank you for admitting me as a member.
