Fresh Voice RJ Metcalf

Fresh Voice RJ Metcalf

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. Since NAF is about unpublished authors, it makes sense to feature writers who are just getting started in their careers. I met RJ(Becky) at Realm Makers this year playing Toon D&D (and crossed off bucket list item from fourth grade – playing D&D). We happened […]

On this blog, we often talk about the power of story and the high calling we as creatives have to express Truth in a new way, to show the glory of God in dark places, and to reflect God’s creative image by creating fantastic things. We also lament the fact that we’re in a strange […]

Writing in the Corners

Writing in the Corners

It’s Week 2 of NaNoWriMo. Maybe you’ve had a banner week or maybe you barely got words on a page. Maybe you haven’t started yet. Don’t worry it’s not too late. I’m in great shape. Sunday I pulled ahead of my rounded up daily goal of 1,700 words. Monday I held on. Tuesday and Wednesday […]

How to sign an e-book

The book signing at Realm Makers was a great event. Over a dozen authors, all fabulous. I even bought a print edition of the Avenir Eclectia anthology, although I almost never buy print books anymore, because six of its contributing authors were there. But among the remaining authors, I either had their books in print […]

Soul Yearning Q & A

Soul Yearning Q & A

I was recently tagged by fellow fantasy writer Elaine Baldwin on a blog hop. It consisted of a few questions about my current book, Soul Yearning. So, here goes. I hope you enjoy 🙂 I met Elaine at my first writer’s conference (ACFW) in 2011. Many of us speculative folk were first timers, so we […]
