Last Sci Fi/ Science fantasy that was Christian I came across was Kathy Tyers "FireBird" trilogy and that was in the last decade.
    Thanks OUtcastscribe...I can only hope the CBA market is ready to move in that direction again. Everything is so fickled as far as what the market wants. But the Lord is firmly in control.

    I write as a hobby.
    I have read the Door Within Trilogy (all in one week, actually).
    As soon as it's published, I'll read Isle of Swords.
    My "Gateway" book was The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.
    In my spare time, I write fantasy myself. I'm working on revisions of a book right now.

    Question Stories on the forum?

    Hey,

    Has anyone ever posted any stories on the forum? I was looking at this feature and I think I'm going to post part of the novel I'm working on right now. It's been accepted in short story form for a fantasy anthology coming out this year. The first novel is nearly complete and is a planned trilogy.

    If anyone gets a chance then check it out and let me know what you think? As writers yourselves, I would really like to have your opinions.
    CLICK HERE: "A World Within"

    If any of you guys in this forum are posting stories then let us know so we can all go and check them out and comment?

    James

    I think it's highly ironic that your forum here, Wayne, has an "Introductions". We at DIOM have an introductions thread as well. When I first joined the DIOM forum a little over a year ago, it was just "Introductions" - now it's "Introductions #4". We (the moderators) have had to make new ones because sometimes some of the members *glares at Roh* get a little carried away ... tee hee. I have to admit, though, before I became a mod, I too was a culprit

    Thumbs up

    Leathel,

    Man, I love your website...very cool. Did you do it yourself?

    Who is your publisher...is this a self published effort. Just curious.

    blessings,
    James

    Hey James,

    Thanks. I do all my websites. They are purchased templates, but modified drastically.

    The series is published by my company, Lethal Publishing Corporation. I initially thought of taking on other authors after my series was done, but now that I have been in the game development I know that is the direction I really want to go(and hopefully that is where God wants me to go). I just do not have enough time to do it all. So hopefully a bigger publisher(cough Tommy Nelson) might come along and be interested in the Foundations series and other series I have planned.
