PostSubject: Greetings From Tennessee   Wed Sep 21, 2011 5:35 pm

Hello All!

My name is Gary Cooke. I'm 24 and from the lovely state of Tennessee via New York City. I run a Sci-Fi/Horror/Fantasy blog at exposednerd.com it's the sister site to my friends site that I've been apart of for a few years called comic book fury. We've found blogging about the things we love is a great way to connect with people and get to share are views and thoughts on things through conversations.

I've been writing my whole life and just got approved to move forward with my first novel for a publisher (yay!). I tend to write on the darker side of things heading towards a hopeful ending most of the time. I love Horror/Science Fiction, and sadly I've found very few of it in the Christian market I have enjoyed which was largely what set me on my path to write it myself for people to hopefully enjoy. If any of you know any good Christ-based Horror/Science Fiction I would love to know about it, all I can ever seem to find is Frank Peretti and Ted Decker books. If anyone wants to get in touch with me for any reason...

Those are the best ways. Look forward to getting to know you all!

Hello Gary,
Welcome to Christian Creative Writers. I am so happy you joined us. My dad grew up in Knoxville Tennessee, and he still says things like "piller" for pillow and "warshed" for washed. Love it!!! And my kids tell me that when I get mad, I suddenly have a southern twang. I wish I could control that, because my kids would take me more seriously when I try to correct them. Instead of them hopping to, they try to hide their smiles and giggles behind their little hands.

I like Fantasy fiction myself and the market is scarce. I mean, who doesn't love Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia, right?

I grew up loving horror/dark things. And my writing always focused that way, and when I got saved I really wanted to reach back to the people I use to be with/like. And give them something to help show them the life. That's really been the inspiration behind the series I am working on. Following a Fallen Angel who regrets her choice to follow Lucifer looking for redemption as she battles demons/dark things learning about herself and finding peace and redemption even after doing horrible thing and seeing such awful things done to people.

That sounds like a story I could sink my teeth into.

You can always ask for some editing help here. I'd love to clean it up as much as I can. Post in the "Critique Corner" of any topic and ask for editing help. Looking forward to working with you.
