‘Dark Skies’ Announcement

  After much consideration, I have decided to take Dark Skies Over Brightwater down from the Amazon Kindle Store. Past this point, it is no longer purchasable. I will be reworking the manuscript into a series of shorter books that will be uploaded as a series rather than one long novel. A couple of thoughts […]

The Swamp and the Stone Wall

Cajoling gave way to pleading which, in its time, evolved into something just short of blackmail. Ronnie wasn’t surprised that it got so bad. She hoped at first it wouldn’t, that eventually, Bill would get tired of pounding his head against the stone wall of her denial and just let it die. He had pretended […]

Art, New Twitter, More!

Presenting ‘Adelaide,’ after Alphonse Mucha’s ‘Autumn,’ done in 1896. Since Addie is an Autumn Sidhe, I thought that was the most appropriate piece to base her off of. There are other symbols throughout, but hey, if you wanna know more, you should probably just go listen to ‘Yours to Keep,’ the game she’s in, at […]

Duets with Dice and ‘Yours To Keep’

It used to be so the features I drew were more varied and grounded in reality. Now… I suppose it helps with visualization, though more often than not I think in sentences […]

Updates! NaNo and Site Pages

I sure did let the site get away from me, I tell you what. But I’ve completely updated my ‘Written Work‘ section with all the pieces currently on the blog. Sorry about that, everyone. It’s better now! In addition, NaNo isn’t going super well for me. It is my first time ever doing it, and […]

Inktober 2k17 Gallery

Now that Inktober is well and truly over, it’s time for me to post the gallery! I didn’t make the full 31 illustrations, but that’s okay, there’s always next year. This was a good year for inspiration, and rather than feeling stressed or worn out by it, I feel refreshed and ready for NaNoWriMo! I […]
