Realm Makers, a conference for Christian authors who write in the speculative genres, is now in its third year. Realm Makers has been open to the thriller and suspense genres since its inception, with A Flame in the Dark in the mix from the beginning: AFitD staff moderated an introductory panel in the first event ("What Is Christian Horror?") and taught a class in the second. With the announcement of the 2015 keynote, this will also mark the second year in a row to see the event opened and closed by a writer of Christian paranormal thrillers (Demon author Tosca Lee keynoted the 2014 event).
This year's class for horror writers will be taught by Mike Duran, who is well known to AFitD readers for his books The Resurrection, Winterland, and The Telling. Duran will present a lecture on "The Theology of Horror."
Serious writers will find much to pique their collective interest, with three separate tracks of continuing classes including editing, world-building, and marketing.
