I'd like to tell … Continue reading Character Mapping: A Helpful Template for Fantasy Writers (With a sneak peek of my next novel included)
Hello. Is this thing still on? Ah. Just the thing my writing blog needs. A microphone joke. Admittedly, I had taken a personal break from this blog. Well, a lot of my social media for some time. Over the past few months I've been withdrawn and began to doubt the validity of this career path. … Continue reading Story Time (And Some Art Updates)
Stand strong, little warrior And let’s play outside again. Though the skies are ablaze I’ll be here beside you in this field of fire.

I found a fantastic artist named Lunaros (check out her work here at https://www.deviantart.com/lunaros). I commissioned her for a drawing and she did not … Continue reading Submerged
I wrote this story not too long ago. I’m still trying to squeeze in a couple of winter-based sub-stories derived from my WIP. Mainly for giveaway/content building purposes. That is to say I don’t really plan on including too many of these in the main story. But you never know. I will definitely include some. … Continue reading The Ribbon

No matter how you try to draw them, for many of us the three circles will end up looking like this. Amazing! All with a sharpie. Now comes the … Continue reading Disney: King of Building Fantasies or King of Brands?
