    Just Now Joining The Underground!

    Post  David N. Alderman on July 17th 2012, 12:17 am

    I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself, seeing how I finally got around to joining the Spirit Blade Underground.

    For starters, I've known Paeter for quite a few years now. We actually live in the same state and used to attend the same church. Actually, a discussion I had with him during a podcast interview the other day inspired me to step out of my shell and start making the rounds to get my face out into the public a little more.

    To give you all a brief idea of what I do: I am a writer of edgy Christian speculative fiction. Pretty much science fiction/fantasy/horror with Christian themes sprinkled throughout. My Black Earth series came out of a need to provide great fiction that embodied Christian themes but wasn't 'corny'. Christian fiction with sexual content, violence, and characters who struggle with reality. I know this type of work might not sit well with some Christians, but this is what I know I am called to write, so I write it.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting you all and digging my heels into the great community here! Very Happy

    Yes! Welcome to the forums!


    I'm glad you're holding fast to your convictions and writing, not what you're fellow man thinks you should, what you feel God wants you to!

    Hey, David. Thanks for joining the community, and welcome! There's not an audiobook version of your work by chance, is there? (Sorry, I'm not much of a reader.)

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Whiteboy, there are not audio versions of my books yet, but I plan to have them in the future. And DNArington, my website is simply my name with the .com at the end. Davidnalderman.com. I tried to put links in and then got the heads up about the 7 day period, which I totally understand.

    Welcome David! (And thanks for adding that link Whiteboy.)

    For those interested, David has been on the podcast twice before and we just recorded a third interview that I'll be airing sometime in the coming weeks!

    Nathan Norman has also reviewed his latest book and I'll be posting that at some point as well.

    Good to see you here, David!

    Yep, I'm a four times winner now bounce It seems to be about the only time I can manage to finish a first draft of anything...
