Winter's Line

By Geoffrey C Porter

Fantasy | Paperback, eBook


"I'm content to be a farmer." "Likely, all you'll be is a farmer. The magic is weak in our line." "Then why bother?" Byron started clearing dishes. "Even if all you ever learn is how to start a fire with magic, that's a great boon in itself." A tale of a young man bent on revenge who becomes a great lawmen with a help of a talented mentor. Book One of the "W" series.



Geoff started writing in 2003. He penned his first novel between Thanksgiving and Christmas that year. He had high hopes for it, of course, but errors plagued his first draft. He was driven to create an epic fantasy next, Juxta, Magi. Then he crafted a military sci-fi, R.A.E.C.E. Genesis. He spent hundreds of afternoons during his formative years dueling over a hot box of dice playing tabletop wargames such as Titan and Axis&Allies. These games have strong military components and fantasy elements. Geoff taught himself to program computers as a young pup. The first software Geoff developed professionally was a Chemical Weapons Attack Simulator for the USAF. He did it in Visual Basic 3.0 in Win3.11, on a 386SX16 processor. Since then he has built websites professionally and browser based multiplayer kingdom games. When he first started writing, he had no clue how to find publishers or submit stories. He didn't know how to fix all the errors in his manuscripts. It kind of hit him like lightning one day that Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH might have an English class worth taking. He discovered a plethora of writing classes, including the most awesome class ever, Text Editing. Geoff learned under published authors: Ed Davis and Tim Waggoner, among others. As of 2015, Geoff has written eight novels and a novella. Most of them were self published. They were largely never sent to publishers, and he's hoping to change his methods. He penned over fifty short stories. Fifteen of his shorts have been published. For five years Geoff ran an eZine, Untied Shoelaces of the Mind. Being an editor, and having a slush pile to go through, has helped him grow as a writer. He quit mostly because he read one too many Man-Eats-Own-Leg stories.
