About Luke Alistar

I am me. There’s only one person in the world like me, and that’s me. If you meet another me, he’s an imposter.

Welcome to the official blog of Luke Alistar! (That’s me.) I am a young freelance writer and I’ve self-published nine books. Writer’s Digest recently bought a short humor piece of mine, so I’m officially published. I’m currently trying to get a novel published traditionally–an agent and a publisher have both requested the full manuscript of my latest novel once I finish editing it. Look through my posts and pages for more interesting stuff.

You can contact me at luke_alistar@mindwielders.com.

Because of my high demand as a critique-giver/editor, I have to decline reading your stuff and giving you feedback unless 1) you are a close friend of mine, or 2) you pay me. Your work should be formatted with one inch margins, letter-size paper, twelve-point courier new double-spaced font. Rates are $0.50 per page for anything over 200 pages, a flat rate of $100 for works between 20 and 200 pages, and $0.02 per word for anything under 20 pages. I am detailed in my feedback. I may spend two to four minutes or even longer on each page.

If you are interested in my services, send me an email at the address above. Give me the first ten pages of your story in a Word document or .txt file, and specify the word count AND the page count of the entire story when it is formatted as I specified.

I live on Earth–specifically in southwestern Washington State. I am a young human male, and I like to laugh and make other people laugh. I’m the oldest of nine kids, and I’m 6′ 5″ tall. I like being random and eating pizza and ice cream. Porsches are some of the most awesome cars ever. I’ve owned three different ones so far and they were all fantastic. Bow ties are cool. I’ve played the piano since I was five years old, and my major heroes are Frederic Chopin, Josh Turner, Tim Downs, Ted Dekker, Bryan Davis, Patrick McManus, and J. R. R. Tolkien. I like country music and I have a famous wool cowboy hat that’s been worn by Ted Dekker, Bryan Davis, Tosca Lee, Jeff Gerke, and Daniel Schwabauer. Also, Ted signed it last time I met him. I call it The Hat. You can ‘like’ it on Facebook.

Seriously.

In addition to being a freelance writer, humorist, blogger, and novelist, I’m also a composer, pianist, guitarist, mandolin player, singer, amateur actor/filmmaker, carpenter, and more.

  1. Of course I have to be contrary to Samii (just because, hey, I AM the Devious one, you know) but I don’t like the new blog. I liked the old one. :( To me, it was easier to read, and easier to navigate.
    But this one is cool. Cool colors. Just bring back the sidebar where I can navigate by topic and not just by date of post, and I’ll be cool as a cucumber :P

  2. Ah, okay. I’ll have to try that, then. I always found the categories to be the easiest way to locate cool posts. ;)
