Hello, my name is Craig W. Chase. I'm a self published author from Oklahoma. I decided to join this site in hopes to communicate with other authors as well as readers. I like writing fantasy and sci-fi mostly. My dream is to be able to write full time! Everything I've done was done on my own, including a children's book I published back in 2006. Below is one of the covers I made using gimp. The only cost for publishing my book was the 35 dollar fee to copyright it. This book is a 1 part of 3 possibly 4 book series Chronicles of the Seekers. I'm currently writing the second one. In 2004 I decided I wanted to do screenwriting. My influences are Tolkien, H.G. Wells, Poe, and Mark Twain. I'm an avid comic book reader that enjoys Marvel and Image books like the Walking Dead. Here is all my contact info to get a hold of me. If you would like to review my book I would be happy to send you the pdf file. Pm me for my email. The book for kindle and paperback. http://www.amazon.com/Seekers-Jelile-Scrolls-Craig-Chase-ebook/dp/B00H7H7ER6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388739365&sr=8-1&keywords=seekers+of+the+jelile+scrolls Here's my facebook like page. https://www.facebook.com/craigwchaseauthor?ref=hl My regular facebook. https://www.facebook.com/craig.chase.16 I hope to get many replies as I love interacting with others.
