this is where i pound you with prose like a pugilist pounds ... uh ... a face? an opponent?
scratch that -- this is where i write. and tell you about it. you know, like a normal person.

you will be the first to receive my infrequent thoughts AND i'll send you the first draft of my novel in EPUB or MOBI format!

and who wouldn't want that?!

STORIES
my short story collection

as a way to hone my craft, (ha! as if!) i like to participate in the monthly writing contest over at fantasy-faction.com. that means, these are mostly non-professionally-edited contest entries.

want to help me out by becoming an alpha reader for my book? that'd be swell! read my book in progress!

What is TopherChapman.com?

since you asked, my name is christopher dean chapman and i'm a game developer by trade. this is my author site.

i decided to try my hand at this storyteller thing when a review lauded my writing on a game i made back in the day. i figured if i could make the story for a puzzle game seem interesting, i could surely make stories about awesome things like swords and magic interesting.

after years of stunted starts on my fantasy novel, i began participating in the fantasy faction community somewhere in the middle of 2015. the bits i've written so far for their monthly writing contest seem to be well received, and i wanted to collect them somewhere. it gives me hope that i can be successful at this.

maybe this site (and the accountability it represents) will help me get the book finished and finally win me that there hugo thing.
