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! (We do have a Community Code of Conduct-please review before you join!)
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.
Fan Communities – Facebook Group
Do you like Facebook? Then please join our KM Shea/AMSohma Champions Group! It’s a great place to ask for reading recommendations and Vin, the community leader, organizes fun games and discussions every month!
Fan Communities – Discord
If you aren’t familiar with Discord it is a general text chat platform and we have an active Champion community! There are sections specifically devoted to chatting about individual book series, and more general chatty topics like recent movies. Click here for the invite to join the Discord chat! Once you’re signed up click here visit the channel at anytime!
Before Discord/Facebook Group 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).
Play Video Games with other Champions!
If you interested in playing the Lord of the Rings Online with me and other Champions we meet on the Landroval server and have a Heroes of Retha group (LOTRO calls them a “kin”) you can join! If you are interested please join Discord and drop a post on the LOTRO specific text channel on Discord so the group can help you build a character and post the meet up schedule. 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. When I have book sales I will post them here so you can share them or tag your friends! I sometimes have FB Live sessions or scheduled FB events, so if you’d like notice of those and you aren’t part of the FB group make sure you have liked my page!
