  2. Ebook: Book Cover Secrets And Shortcuts

    The first tip of the book must be: 1. don't make book covers like mine
  3. Info from Bestfantasybooks.com LitRPG an emerging subgenre of Science Fiction & Fantasy and, arguably, the fastest growing new speclatutive fiction genre, if you look at the sheer number of LitRRPG indie fiction being released right now. LitRPG literally stands for 'literature Role Playing Game'. In other words, a story version of an RPG -- at least in theory. Truth be told the genre has busted out of its pure gaming roots and has started to define an identity. What it will be in a few years might not be what it is now. The Short History of LitRPG The genre (which up to recently was often bundled in with Cyberpunk) started out in Korea as a sort of successful fanfic experiment. This new kind of story (about gamers trapped in VR gaming worlds) gained some popularity in Korea. Then a few Russians, sensing an opportunity, started to dabble in this new genre, releasing LitRPG books in Russia. D Rus (Play to Live) and V Manhanenko (The Way of the Shaman) were the first such. These authors soon became fairly successful in Russia which garnered the attention a well-regarded Russian Science Fiction writer Andrei Livadny who wrote the Phantom Series novels. This series became a national best seller in Russia and soon LitRPG became a real thing in Russia, not just an obscure niche of science fiction. A few years later, D Rus translated his Play to Live series into English and released them on the Kindle marketplace. The books found a hungry English-speaking readership willing to buy anything stamped with LitRPG on it and soon, the Russian invasion of LitRGP began. English Indie SFF writers saw how successful this new genre was on the marketplace (dominated up to this point by Russian-translated works) and started writing their own LitRPG stores. And here we are a few years later with a new genre. Popular LITRPG Books we can find on Goodreads Some thoughts from my friends about Christian litRPG: So What is LITRPG? It's all about virtual reality becoming reality, where everything that happens takes place partly or entirely inside virtual reality. Think the Matrix meets World of Warcraft meets Ender's Game and you have a good idea what it is.

  5. How about christian LitRPG (MMO-based virtual reality books)? Do you know any christian LitRPG? Online gaming is the largest non-evangelized people group in the world. Gamers spent alot of money online. Gamers have big communiities. LitRPG is a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy which describes the hero's adventures within an online computer game. LitRPG books merge traditional book-style narration with elements of a gaming experience, describing various quests, achievements and other events typical of a video game. The defining feature that sets LitRPG fiction apart from traditional portal fantasy is its use of interactive gaming language, such as the inclusion of various system messages, players' stats, items' characteristics and other elements appreciated by gamers. The narration in a LitRPG novel has to abide by the rules of a game while filling it with conflict and drama as the hero tries to survive in this new environment.This "book meets game" experience proved to be exactly what many gamers-turned-readers were looking for in a novel. I have read lots of LitRPG books (Ready Player One, Play to Live, The Dark Messiah, The Way of the Shaman, The Knighthood and etc.). But i can't find any christian LitRPG... We need it. The future is for christian LitRPG!
  6. Conflict - Christian Style

    My master says, tragedy is not about tears and fears. Tragedy - is when both sides are right. And here goes a real conflict.
  7. Oh, sorry for my bad english In my language we have fingers on hands and on foots, one meaning - fingers. In english it must me - toe, right?
  8. It is true. But we have some common things: twenty fingers, one head and one heart. Maybe we can use the same inspiration things to do our best
  9. You can take it free from 26 july. Promo action will be soon
  10. I like what my friend writer Neil Ionov wrote about this: “Did you not know that God created the world at night?” Dmitry asked. “Is that right?” He turned around on the church steps to face me. “Many people notice that it is easier for them to work in the evening and at night. It’s as if they get a second wind, especially people who are of a creative bent. They paint pictures, write books, compose poems. Many notice this but few take time to think about it. Monks pray for the world. No one bothers them at night; people don’t disturb them in the churches or distract them. Everyone is asleep, but prayers quietly wash over the Earth, and people get inspired. Now you know the secret.” I thought about it. It was certainly true that it was easier for me to work at night; I was better able to concentrate on the process of work, my brain worked like a clock, as though hitting its stride in the work flow at that time. In three or four hours of evening work, I was able to accomplish five times as much as during the entire day. Sometimes I felt the same effect in the early morning. Dmitry again pulled my thoughts directly out of my head and added: “Monks pray in the evening, at night, and finish towards early morning, when ordinary people are just starting to wake up to go to work. Early morning is also suitable for creativity or work. If you get up three hours prior to your usual wake-up time then you can catch the monks at prayer in order to use the common flow to complete the tasks you may have.”

  12. One Of The Best Markets To Write For In 2017

    Hi suspensewriter! We can add: if your plan is for 1000 years, educate writers.
  13. One Of The Best Markets To Write For In 2017

    If you have a good book, it is not enough today. You also need million friends or million dollars to promote you book p.s. maybe writing for writers about how to promote - is more in demand?
  14. As always - write, write and write
  15. Writer's Software

    I use mindmaps to write the plot lines and descriptions of the characters. My favorite soft for mindmaps is Freemind. FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java, it s simple and free.
