There was too much grinding, weak stories, repetitive mechanics and other annoyances, like the dreaded microtransactions. I had always loved reading, but eventually the novels I found began to feel stale, they were too cliche to keep me excited to turn the pages. Then the stars aligned and I found GameLit; it was the perfect blend of my interests, it recaptured the way I had felt when gaming and the fantasy genre. I could follow the story of a character in a world that ran on game rules, whether it be in a parallel universe or full-immersion VR. I could vicariously enjoy all the parts of a game I’d loved, without being subjected to the interminable grind. I was drawn in by the notion of hyperrealistic worlds and NPCs controlled by advanced AIs, where magic required actual understanding to cast and actions had tangible consequences. The genre ticked all the right boxes for me, I’d found a new love. Yet, the stories were so few, I’d read everything available and still, I wanted to read something nobody had written. So, I started writing myself. Today, I write full time and am best known as the author of the Unbound Deathlord series.Read more Read less
