Dumitru Toma | 1 comments Hi, I'm new around here, just got caught in the LitRpg explosion about a year a go. Reading kind of everything I can get my hands on; really hate short books so I'm just not bothered with leaving reviews ( and don't know how to properly write one ). I'm really glad lots of people started writing this kind of novels and I'm excited about all the unique new ones.

Blodwedd Mallory (blodwedd_mallory) | 1 comments Hi, all - I'll follow Dumitru's suit and introduce myself as well. I'm Blodwedd Mallory. I have two novels LitRPG novels and I'm working on the third at the moment. My introduction to LitRPG was James A. Hunter's works and I'm a fan.

My books have a slight spin on the usual LitRPG approach. I was given permission by a game company to write a series of urban fantasy/horror novels in their game world, so my stories are a full immersion there.

I invite you to visit my author page (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...) if you're interested in learning more or of course, I welcome direct questions as well.

Ed White (edwhiteauthor) | 1 comments Hello all - my name is Ed White, a table-top gamer for many years and a more recent reader of GameLit and LitRPG.

I am an artist and writer too, and creativity is what drew me to games like D&D.

So many good books out there right now.

C.F. Welburn | 1 comments Greetings! Glad to be part of this group. I'm an avid gamer (more video than table), and a fantasy book fan. I suppose my series The Ashen Levels falls more into GameLit territory than LitRPG with it not being so much set in a game, but an epic fantasy which uses gaming mechanics as a basis for its magic system. Will be checking out your recommendations for my next reads! Cheers.


message 14: by R. (new)

R. Frost (rbradyfrost) | 1 comments Hello, all! I'm R. Brady Frost, I live in the US, and I write SciFi & Fantasy.

My first novel is in a small sub-genre called GameLit, which is a combination of both science fiction and fantasy where the protagonist finds themself within a game world.

Second Chance - A Battle Mage Reborn (Book 1) just released in mid-October, and has performed very well. If you like video games and fantasy worlds, give it a shot! (Available in KU.)

Peter John (pjauthor1) | 2 comments Hi everyone. I'm Peter John, I'm from Africa and I live in Asia and have recently launched my first novel:
Abduction Chronicles: GENESIS
A military Science Fiction, LitRPG, GameLit and Fantasy combo. If you like Spec Op's soldiers, magic, Elves and Orcs, then this adventure puts you right in the thick of it.

Beyond this series, I'm a Professional wildlife photographer and zoologist.

Besides prolific mobile and PC gaming, and reading, I tutor English and write books.

It's great to be part of this group.

Please add me as friend or follow if you want to keep track of the Abduction Chronicles series, or any future books I may publish.

I look forward to seeing what other books are doing well in this group and enjoy to read high stakes GameLit, LitRPG and Science Fiction of all flavours.
