Hello, My name is Shawn Graham. I am a lot of things; a stay full time dad, a part time photographer, an all the time geek, and a gamer and a sometimes game designer. Like a lot of people, I used to love to write. Also like a lot of people, I got away from it for what ever the reason was. I’d like to get back into that.
I’ve been working on a series of short stories that will act as tie in fiction for a game I am developing with my brother in law, Kris Bryson. Kris is currently serving in the Peace Corps in Uganda though, so development has been slow. For NaNoWriMo 2014, I decided to take a crack at writing a novel. I started very strong, but then my entire family (wife, two kids, and ultimately myself), got sick and my word buffer slowly went away. I wrote nearly 11,000 words before it was shelved for other projects.
This is the book that started writing for NaNoWriMo 2014. It’s called ’The Iron Wall’ and it is about a unit of dwarves that set out to defend their kingdom and discover the source of the threat that challenges the existence of all life.
I love fantasy, and I love dwarves. After seeing the elf porn that was added to the Hobbit movie trilogy, I thought they could use some love.
I was going to self publish this book, as I had others in the past, but the added benefit of editing and design help from Inkshares would be a real boon to me.
