Revenant Now Free Until the End of July 2020

Hello, readers mine. As the title suggests, The Necromancer and the Revenant: Resurrected Edition is now free on Smashwords until the end of this month.

And From the Ashes?

The following is a scheduled post. I’ve set it for close to a month after I reached the decision stated here. That you are reading it means nothing has happened in that timeframe to change my mind.

Book News: A New Edition and a New Novel

My esteemed readers! I bring, in effect, not one but two new book announcements for you today!

I won’t lie to you all: while it had its good parts, I believe it’s one of my worst articles from recent years. I like to think by […]

Subversion: The Storyteller’s Great White Whale

Hello, readers mine! Here I sit, once more, with the chance to write something on the blog, and what better something to write about than subversion? It’s a topic creators of all stripes can stand to learn about, from musicians to artists, but most of all writers. Whether you’re a novelist or a tabletop Dungeon […]
