    GameLit has been exciting to watch grow. It was released late September at a time when almost no one knew the term, and is now a term almost everyone who follows LitRPG is aware of. I see people refer to LitRPG as GameLit/LitRPG all the time.

    There has been a lot of support for the term from authors. I'm excited to be releasing my GameLit novels this year. :)

    I've been busy, so I don't join many discussions. It's good to see everyone. Hope you're all doing well!

    It has been an exciting time so far. Not to mention I been getting creative with my ideas. In fact, my new horror book has Ammo Crafting. Yeah create different ammo types and I got a few more tricks up my sleeve.

    Personally, I'm glad. It's allowed authors who have written some fabulous work like Jeffrey Russell's "The Dungeoneers", J. Zachary Pike's "Orconomics", Drew Hayes "NPCs", and a lot of other great novels have a place to call home.

    It also frees authors from a common complaint that I hear, and that I have with some novels. That stats are added in just to make the novel "LitRPG", even when they have no use or purpose to the novel. I'm glad that there's a genre that helps people write the books they want without feeling the need to shoehorn in elements they don't want to. 3 cheers from me.

    One thing I think I did right in the first launch of Tower of Gates was integrating the game/stats. @Tfish10065 and others noted that about the books, and I tend to agree. When it comes to being LitRPG, I nailed it. Hopefully, it'll do better with improved story, characters, and even more polished pacing.
