1001 Bad Jokes Audiobook

In the spirit of audiobooks (which will make sense when I put up another post tomorrow…) I wanted to give everyone a little freebie. We had a voice actor friend of ours, who goes by the name Scindo Veritas, do an audiobook version of our 1001 Bad Jokes book that we hand out at conventions […]

The DeAndre Jordan Fiasco for Sports Dummies

I’ve been a Dallas Mavericks fan for basically my entire adult life. I not only live and die by their success, but I’m pretty locked in on the moves they make, looking for any sign that they’re getting better, which increases my entertainment, or worse, which increases my despair. So I was understandably disappointed by […]

Cithria Book 4 Preview! Read the Prologue to The Master now!

Prologue Joba reached for the glass-encased oil lamp on the top shelf. He set it on the counter next to his latest project, nudging it around slightly to get the best light. The sun had drifted behind the hills west of town, draping his workshop in shadow. He’d be called to dinner soon, even though […]

Critique – True Detective S2E1

Jun 23, 2015 | No Comments

One thing writers need to have a firm grasp on is critiques. They need to be able to take critiques from other writers or readers, and they need to be able to critique their own work objectively. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s critical for understanding how to craft your writing into something […]

Coming Soon

Jun 11, 2015 | No Comments

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Coming Soon post, and even though none of you are clamoring for it, I figured I’d throw one up anyway! Before getting into what we’re currently working on, however, I suppose I should talk a bit about what we accomplished in the first part of this year. […]

Convention Season

Jun 8, 2015 | One Comment

Lots of stuff going on here at the4threalm.com, which is part of the reason why there hasn’t been much activity here on the site. In fact, two posts before this one is the last chapter of our Christmas story (which I encourage you to read!), so that’s a good five months of radio silence. But […]

Welcome New Authors

Jun 5, 2015 | No Comments

Hello readers! We’ve been working on some big news for a few weeks now, and I don’t have the patience to keep it in any longer. In 2010, the4threalm.com began as a collaboration primarily between three authors – Kris Kramer, Alistair McIntyre, and Patrick Underhill. Our goals were modest. Write books, tell people about them, […]

About Us


What is the4threalm.com, you ask? Well, first and foremost, we’re authors, with books that we’re trying to get in front of your eyeballs. But we do more than just write.

We’re also an ebook publishing imprint, made up of a group of collaborative writers who help each other edit, critique, polish, publish and market our books. That means we work hard to make each other successful. The world of digital publishing can be a little bit like the wild west, and we’re here to tame it by providing our readers the assurance that they’re getting quality books and content.

Now that you’re here, take some time to browse through our current books and projects, read up on our published authors, and interact with other writers in our forums. We’re a community of creative types here at the4threalm.com, and we’re always looking for more people who want to express themselves through storytelling. So don’t be afraid to say hi!
