Christian Fantasy and World-Building Links

I thought I would share some of my favorite Christian fantasy and world-building sites with you!

My friend Janeen has a lot to say about building your characters and your world at her site here:  <http://janeenippolito.com/>   She has several e-books on world-building which I am really excited to read!

The Realm Makers conference (to be held this year near Philadelphia in late July) is a really great opportunity to get together with other Christian fantasy and SF writers and learn...  Also, they have a story contest!  They are active on Facebook, so like their page to enter the discussion!  <http://www.realmmakers.com/> <https://www.facebook.com/RealmMakers>

The Holy Worlds online discussion community (for Christian fantasy, SF, and historical fiction) is very friendly and active.  You can get all kinds of advice, and read bits of each other's stories (always my favorite part)!  They have close ties to the Marcher Lord Press, so if you like the idea of getting your story published in hard-copy, you may want to take a look.  <http://www.holyworlds.org/>

Dame Imraldera's Library is the place to find fanfiction, poems, art, and more for A. E. Stengl's Tales of Goldstone Wood series.  (Did I mention that I love reading other people's stuff?)  Rooglewood Press also runs a story contest every year which is friendly to Christian fantasy, SF, historical, and what have you. <http://www.rooglewoodpress.com/>  <http://dameimraldera.blogspot.com/>

Take a look at the ACFW website (American Christian Fiction Writers).  They have a lot of different kinds of resources.  I really like their FictionFinder tool, which lets you search for new Christian fantasy and SF.  They also have a number of contests.  <http://www.acfw.com/>

Do you have a favorite site related to Christian fantasy or SF?  Leave the link in the comments section!  :)
