My first day at my new job was absolutely fantastic. I’m so excited to have my free time back so I can focus my energy back into my writing, which speaking of after today I got a fair amount done on the newest November short story.
Sadly, while I am confident that I will finish the story before the end of the month I’m not sure I will get it edited and ready for publishing before October. Hopefully, though, it should be at least posted in the early days of October.
Feel free to call me out if that doesn’t turn out to be true! I’m hoping if I keep saying it I’ll feel too guilty about not doing it, to not have it finished. Sometimes you just need to give yourself a level of accountability, and with my new job and the new time I will have for working on my passions and being with my friends.
I hope everyone out there who’s currently in a job where they can’t pursue their interests or can’t see their friends and loved ones.
Best piece of advice I have for you; the biggest mistake you can make when you have a job – is to not keep looking for a better one.
So keep looking, keep hoping and even if it isn’t your dream job you can still find something better that will make you happier. A job that will allow you to pursue your interests and be with your friends.
Keep strong everyone!
For anyone who checked out my last blog, you know that I recently went on a plane trip to Nebraska and back again. Well as of yesterday at probably 11, I got home and I’ve finally wound down and caught up with myself enough to get back to action.
I’m proud to admit that a fair amount of work went into the World of Eldra collection, which still does not have scheduled release dates due to the cooperative nature of the collection. Hopefully, by the end of the year, we’ll see the release of several more stories and such from that world.
As for the trip itself, I’ll be releasing a short vlog about that in the coming days – I, in fact, did not record much over the week because I was having far too much fun just enjoying life. But I will go over what happened and such and just generally lay out how the trip went (which in short, was an amazing trip) and then I’ll be getting back to work.
I know I keep saying the next November story is coming *soon* but it actually is close to being finished. The story in question is a hard one and I had to restart a few times because I just knew in my heart that it wasn’t going the direction I want. Now, though, I think I have it down pat and in the coming days (before October hopefully!!) it will be released for your reading pleasure.
Other than that there’s not much else to say right now, but good reads people! Keep your eyes out!

The Origins of Eldra and the Worlds Of
Before song, before legend, before history, before our world – there was only one. One ethereal spirit amongst a sea of cold, oppressing darkness. The spirit was bright and magnificent, shimmering stars and sparkling ether rolling off of them in bounds. Larger than reality itself, even a fraction of the spirit eclipses a thousand stars and suns…
I’m obviously crazy, because on top of writing my Sci-Fi novel the Radio-Verse series and everything else that I do; in conjunction with my dear friends I have decided to start up a fantasy series.
Well, I as in we, everything that is written comes from all of us and on occasion I hope to share even my friends work and additions to the world that we’re creating.
On my original works page you can see a the new series already has a name; Lights in the Valley.
Before our heroes adventure kicks off I plan to release several world lore snippets before hand – one so that you aren’t going in blind and two, when you got four authors working on a single project we need to have some ground rules!
Several of the pieces will be penned by myself for sure, but I hope and plan to have the influence of my friends alongside it. So all pieces will have names/tags on them so you know who contributed what.
For now, though, thank you to my dear friends who reinspired my love for fantasy!
In me and my friends personal D&D game we just finished a main story arc in the starter city. In the final crux of the story we meet three woman of the Tourmaline city Council. Lady Olivia and Lady Zi’la – and the ever mysterious Lady Ava.
I originally started this piece just to draw Olivia and Zi’la – but then I got bored. Maybe my boredom will extend to the full story behind Olivia and Zi’la and the player characters who met them. For now, though, here’s a few of the woman of the council. We’ll see what comes later. If you check out the gallery, all the art there is also from the same D&D campaign.
