If you’d like to discuss your fan theories or your favorite scenes with other Champions I have a couple of places you can do that! (Note: We do have a Community Code of Conduct–the rules are posted down below!)
This is a general text chat platform and I setup a server just so you could talk to each other! There is a specific channel just for Timeless Fairy Tale series discussion, but if you want to talk about other books there are channels for those as well! Click here for the invite to join the Discord chat! Once you’re signed up click here visit the channel at anytime!
If you interested in playing Lord of the Rings Online with me and other Champions we there is a specific channel on Discord so the group can help you build a character and post the meet up schedule. We meet on the Landroval server and have a Heroes of Retha group (LOTRO calls them a “kin”) you can join! The Kinship meets up on Fridays at 8 PM central, but lots of players are on during other nights as well!
I try to post frequently on my FB author pages for both my pen names: KM Shea and AM Sohma. I also will sometimes have FB Live sessions or scheduled FB events, so if you’d like notice of those make sure you have liked my page!
New–Facebook Group: In 2020 we also added the KM Shea/AMSohma Champions Group, which means you can now converse directly with other Champions if Facebook is more your style!
Before the Discord chat server was setup the comments on the blog posts were frequently used for chatting. They comments are still a valid place to chat with others and many of the comments also contain great book recommendations (it really depends on what the blog post topic is).
Community Code of Conduct
I sincerely believe I have the most valiant group of readers, and I’m so endlessly proud of our community and the kindness and laughter we share.
But, as with anything good, we need guidelines to protect our space. So, here they are!
- Be Kind: We want our server to be a safe and happy place for everyone, so we can support one another on our happy and sad days. (This doesn’t mean you can’t talk about religion or politics, but you must keep things civil and kind. We don’t want fighting ripping us apart.)
- Keep things PG: The ages of our community members vary a lot, so to keep things clean for our younger members we’re stamping our server with a PG rating. Some language is okay, but try to keep it clean—no f-bombs, please and thank you! (You won’t get banned if you slip up, but an admin or moderator will message you to remind you of this rule.)
- Trolling isn’t tolerated: Purposely bullying a Champions is an instant ban. We have zero tolerance for this kind of conduct in our community.
