Welcome Knights!

I guess a few explanations are in order for why we've set up our own little spot away from Pan. The main reason is that we needed a place where we could discuss issues with our novels and do our MoBly duties freely. None of us could afford a Salon at Pan, so this off-site blog seems like the best solution.

Why the name? It developed from Ary's idea, Bibliophile Knights (I don't remember where this came from, but it was first suggested when we were discussing ideas for a Salon name at Pan a few months ago), and I embellished it a little, with a nod to the Knight's Templar.

What will we do here? We can discuss novel and character planning in a private environment, which is good in case you're planning something interesting and want input but don't want to spoil the surprise for novel readers. Our main topics will be TLT, KoC, and L'Affaire, but other novels can come into it too (it's not like we're forbidding any other discussion...I'm sure there will be plenty of room for digression occassionally).

Anyway, these are just my conceptions of what we'll use this place for...anyone can suggest their ideas!

//EDIT: I think it might be a good idea to post a small picture at the beginning of the post like I have to identify ourselves more easily...what do you guys think?

Since you wanted to see how comments work, I’ll start off by thanking Deia for starting us off! Most of what Deia has already said, I agree with, so there is no need to repeat it really. Indeed, welcome to The Secret Temple of the Bibliophile Knights! It’s great to finally have a private place of our own where we can post about our novels without ruining too much and, yet, keeping all of us informed at the same time.

Oh, and btw, Bibliophile Knights came from a book named The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n, in case you’re interested. Also, I do think it’s a fabulous idea to post a small picture at the beginning of posts (even if it’s just another way to show off our graphic skills as the same time). Though I’m not sure if you can post images inside the comments…

That’s it for now.

Comments work okay without pictures, Arynthya, since it puts your name at the top anyway. I'm glad you liked the idea!

What does everyone think about our blog's new look?

I love it (although I’m surprised that you didn’t design some kind of header or banner)!

I was going to, but I didn't have time. I'm currently brainstorming ideas for it...

Well, if you need any ideas, I’m here as always!
