About David James

David James is a man of many attributes: He's a believer in Jesus as the Christ. He's a family man with a wife and two children. He's an entrepreneur with a fledgling business called Beyond the Charts, an Independent Marketer with Manna From Heaven, a writer of both speculative fiction and some spiritual matters. He's a listener of heavy metal with techno, goth, and industrial sounds preferred. He doesn't listen to "Christian radio" and can't stand most "Praise and Worship" music because it comes across so staged and more for entertainment than worship, but he loves the worship coming out of MorningStar Ministries because of the raw intensity of it. He loves scary movies whether it's a creepy ghost story or an intense slasher film, as well as strange humor films, and just loves the spoof films that have come out over the past decade. He thinks Kevin Smith films are very funny, but doesn't care for it when they speak bad of Jesus. His favorite novelist of all time is Stephen King. His favorite sci-fi novelist is Kevin J. Anderson. Other novelists he enjoys are too numerous to mention here. For Spiritual reading he turns to Billy Graham, Mike Murdock, Rick Joyner, John Bunyan, Ellen White, Herbert Armstrong, Martin Zender, and R.A. Torrey. He enjoys financial and self-help books ranging from Dale Carnegie to Zig Ziglar to Donald Trump to Robert Kiyosaki. The one thing that irritates him is when people don't show respect, yet want respect from those they don't show it to.

  1. Wow! That’s a lot of chances to rack up points. And thank you for reviewing Tales of the Dim Knight. Andrea and Adam are wonderful.
    I would say it is a clean read that would fall inline with teen readers perfectly. I never really got deep into comic books, so I missed the finer points of it. But I will read it again when I am in a quirky mood, because Andrea and Adam certainly have a quirky and fun style.
    Great review, Teddy Bear. 😀

  2. My Dearest Teddy Bear,

    Great interview.

  3. Good review, David. Adam and Andrea are great :). I have to say, I think Diane inadvertently answered one of your complaints about the book–if Adam and Andrea had gotten into all the obscure superheroes the general market wouldn’t be able to appreciate it.

    Anyway, don’t count my comment as an entry, since I have the book already ;).

  4. Kat is right about the point about some of the more obscure superheroes. It makes it hard for the general market, and the Christian Market. Though, even with more recognizable heroes mentioned, it hasn’t been easy.

    But anyway, thanks for the review and for the contest. It looks we’ve already sold one Kindle Edition of Tales of the Dim Knight today.

  5. David, thanks for all the hard work you put into the review and for doing this contest–way cool. I’ll give Adam 80% of the credit for the quirky style and sense of humor. My sense of humor is much more dry and literary.

    If anyone has any questions they’d like to ask us, we’ll be around this week and next week. 🙂

  6. I wasn’t thinking that it needed an overdose of obscure characters, even mentioning some of the more “well known” ones that have recently gone to film or that have had TV shows in the past (Iron Man, Hulk, Green Lantern, etc.) would have been great references. Then on occasion a reference to one of the more obscure would have been a great easter egg for fans such as myself even if it went right past the casual reader. Kind of like the name “Hal Stewart” went by most of the viewers of the film Megamind but I caught it instantly along with a lot of other great jokes that maybe the casual viewer of that film didn’t get but wasn’t intrusive to the rest of the viewers of the film. It didn’t have to be so in the face of the reader that the casual reader would have felt overwhelmed, but rather just something that was there and if you knew it and caught it then it would have brought that extra sense of pleasure for the reading experience. But, hey, like I said, it wasn’t a deal breaker for the novel, just something I thought would have worked a bit better for it considering the main character. Maybe you can do it more that way in the sequel. 😉

    So let me see, by looking at those that have commented so far, we have one point for Diane, one point for mibillie, Kat forfeited her point, and the two authors are the ones that will sign the book. Cool. 😉

  7. […] James at New Authors Fellowship is hosting the first leg of our book tour. There’s an opportunity to win a free copy of the book. It’s all based […]

  8. David, how’s this, if we do a sequel, we’ll do Iron Man, Hulk, and Green Lantern just for you. LOL. Seriously, Adam sought to fit in everyone he could in Dim Knight, but there definitely are quite a few stones left unparodied yet, and it’d be stale if we hit the same old, same old up again. Dave put the emphasis on his personal favorites/most loved heroes this time around since he was a newbie hero emulating them.

    • Hah-hah-hah!!! That’s okay, Andrea. I’m just being my more ornery self here and belaboring the point and poking at you guys a bit. You two still did a great job with the story and I really liked the superhero team-up you guys had in it. If you guys do a sequel, just do what you think is right for the character. Personally, I always did kind of see Powerhouse’s armor as a nod to Iron Man anyway, so I was sort of ribbing you there, plus with the Emerald Avenger of course you had the nod to Green Lantern as well as a couple of others, so don’t take my ribbing too seriously there. 😉
