Hello, author of "Year Of The Guardian" (I couldn't see your name anywhere)!
I'm an author, like yourself! I'm currently writing a trilogy of books, called the "ACRATARA Trilogy". I currently have them safely copyrighted, and my first novel's manuscript is being reviewed by Scholastic.
It's looking great, so far!
The books are titled as so:
I know exactly what you mean about being dyslexic. My grandfather is actually dyslexic, but he's also the pastor of our Baptist Church. It's not a hindrance in the slightest, but a great blessing, as he does amazing things with his sermons that a lot of pastors these days cannot do.
My books are actually written in the style of "readable for all ages", as my target audience is, well, everyone. My novel plot-telling has a foundation based upon God and his wondrous work, where I implement his existence within my novels through a different name: Elohim (one of his many names in the Bible). The genre of the novels are action/adventure/fantasy, and has a grand mixture of humor, love, and emotion interwoven within its pages. I imagine the story as if it's being told through camerawork and scripting of a Steven Spielberg film (I love his movies). Basically, the story revolves around a group of late teenagers who are descendants of the "Acratara' (I created my own language for the story, and Acratara means "followers of Elohim"), who are the purest of heart human beings who fight behind the scenes of Earth's events, against an enemy called the "Craota" (Followers of Traitus, who is the physical embodiment of Lucifer's great strength and hatred of humanity).
I just wanted to tell you that you are an inspiration to us all. I am a huge fan of your fantasy artwork, and I hope to pick your novel up after my deployment, which will be over soon!
A friend of mine gave me a few art concepts to bring some of my characters to life, as I am more talented with writing than I am with art.
The primary villain of my first book is actually my Deviant Art Profile Picture, which is to the upper left!
Keep doing what you're doing, and feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding my story, if you're curious to read what it's about!
I hope one day that my novels will be in a Barnes and Noble right next to yours! Fingers crossed!

You're welcome, Ms./Mrs. Cross
Hooray for being 21! ^_^
It's always nice to find other Christians with novelist dreams out there.
When I get home after Christmas I'll pick up a copy of your novel.
After so long of reading nothing but Army stuff, this will be a delightful take-off into the world of fantasy
