If you have read any amount of my writing, I would hope that you have noticed that I believe very strongly that God desires all men to dedicate and subject all of their lives utterly to Him. If that was not made clear, let me apologize and I will try to amend that error. I firmly believe that this word ‘all’ includes writing, and more specifically fantasy writing, both of which are things that I do prolifically. Unfortunately, the ‘genre’ of Christian fantasy has become branded with labels like shallow, preachy, insipid, and cliché. All these things are saddening to me to say the least, since it is my belief that Christians should always be doing the best at everything not sinful or wasteful. Writing fantasy is not necessarily either, although it can be made so.
So for the purpose of helping those of us who want to aid each other in uplifting and instilling in each other the very valuable virtue of quality in our Christian fantasy writing, I have launched a site dedicated to just that. The goal is to develop a Christian community of fantasy writers (and some non-fantasy writers too, if they want) that loves and strives to help, exhort, equip, train, and encourage each other in their illustrious calling. If you are at all interested in joining or supporting this group, please visit the site. If you are not inclined to either help, support, or join, then please just ignore it. 🙂
I look forward to seeing all of you there!
With joy and peace in Christ,
