In 2008, I was lucky enough to join the Co-Optimus team. I've always enjoyed writing, and the opportunity to write about video games, another passion of mine, was something I couldn't pass up. Almost seven years, hundreds of news articles, and dozens of game reviews later, I have taken the next step by writing my first book!
It's called I Was Geeky When Geeky Wasn't Cool, and it's an honest autobiographical account of what it was like to grow up as a nerd in the 1980s. Throughout the book's 30,000 words, there are things that will make you laugh, things that might make you cry, and a host of 80s pop culture references. From Star Wars and Dungeons & Dragons to Transformers and beyond, there is plenty here for nerds and geeks to like, but anyone who ever felt awkward growing up will find the book compelling.
I Was Geeky When Geeky Wasn't Cool is available at the Amazon Kindle store. Click on the picture above to go to the book's Amazon page, where you can read customer reviews, check out a sample, and get a copy for yourself. I'd love to hear your feedback about the book, contact me here at Co-Optimus, or @marcallie on Twitter!
