Now sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip
That started at the end-of-days, aboard this tiny ship.
The skipper was a gamer lass who brought along her cat,
and so survived her flooding town, along with some snakes and rats.
Demons swarmed into the world and elementals woke
Battles raged within the sky, until the planet broke. (Until the planet broke!)
The ship was tossed onto the shore of an Earth newly reborn
With magic spells
A System too
Dungeons and monsters!
"If this is my home, I'll make it my own."
Welcome to Mossharbor.
In the modern world, qi is money.
The days of traveling martial artists and mountaintop masters are over. Power is controlled by corporations, modernized martial arts sects, and governments. Those at the bottom of society struggle as second class citizens in a world in which power is a commodity.
Rick is a young fighter in this world. He doesn't dream of immortality or becoming the strongest, just of building a better life for himself and his sister, who suffers from a spiritual illness. Unfortunately, life isn't that easy...
(Author's Note: After the first book's successful run on Amazon, I'm posting the sequel chapter by chapter here as well for all the fans who supported me.)

The thief was confident that it would be another heist like any other. Steal the mark, get paid, retire, gamble away any money not spent at brothels, and come out of retirement. Again. That was how it was supposed to go. Only, the woman he was stealing from was a noble vampire, and he wasn't expecting to get killed and reincarnated as a puppy. Now, left in the underground dungeon floors of the city's tower, the infamous thief must adapt to his four-legged and fluffier life and quickly if he doesn't want to get turned into a snack by monsters several times his size.
To make matters even more difficult for him, he finds himself bound by a curse to not only hunt and devour the strong but to evolve and become his killer's cerberus. Though, none of these struggles are as difficult as the itch behind his ear that just won't go away.
Everything in life can be measured, and everything in life is measured. Each person who has ever lived has five Numbers on their arm, defining the five primary attributes of that person. Throughout someone's life, these will increase with time and effort, and all of society revolves around these Numbers.
What happens when this natural system of Numbers, the basis of all of society for all of history...changes?
My first fiction, so I appreciate all reviews and feedback!
Waking up in a white room, surrounded by bones wasn't how Chris planned on spending the rest of his life. He hadn't planned on ending up in an alien laboratory full of caged monsters either.
Inducted into a world with strange blue screens that hint at a world of fantasy, magic, and danger, Chris must survive until the System whisks him away for the promised Tutorial. If help comes too late, Chris risks becoming something less than human, or something more...

After a great deal of preparation, Danika begins her new digital dragon's life in a very small way.
They say the "Living Jade Empire" creates individualized quests. They say it can read your mind. They say you can find your heart's desire. They say that there's never been a game like it, and they're right but… they're also wrong.
The game is a data mine, built to retell the old tales that humans have been telling each other since language was invented. It doesn't read your mind, but it reads your search history, your favorites, and your blogs. The "Living Jade Empire" is literally crafted from fables, legends, fantasies, and maybe just a bit of stardust.
But in the end, will the game be able to figure out what Danika wants most? Will the desires of other players take priority? Or, will playing it change her, until she desires what it can give her?
A journey is always made up of many small steps, and this game has still only just begun.
A teenager struggling after the death of his best friend finds himself in a fantasy world - one which seems to be an amalgamation of every Dungeons and Dragons campaign they ever played together. Now he's stuck trying to find the answers to why he's there and what this world is trying to say. The most terrifying answer might be that this world is an expression of the person he was back on Earth.
The most complete version of this is posted on Archive of Our Own. Chapters will be posted here at roughly 13 hour intervals (which will rotate timezones) for the next two or three months until it's been caught up to current.
A puzzling encounter leaves Dimitry a beggar with a strange emblem on his wrist. Around him, the people suffer as ruthless organizations, opportunistic nobles, and an overly pious church vie for power in a land under constant siege by some unknown threat. He quickly learns the difficulty of life in this new world.
Starting from nothing, how can he use wit, modern knowledge, and magic to survive?
A story dedicated to anyone who thrives on intricate magic systems, realistic science, impossible odds, and those who rise to defy them.
Speaking heresy on my deathbed led me to meet god. Maybe it was a curse, or a blessing, but he decided I would work it off--as one of many gods on another world of magic and sorcery. It wasn't something I intended or was prepared for, but I am willing to work to make the world a better place. Isn't that what a god SHOULD do? Part of the Demonsword Project universe (First Age).
Author's Note: I have a habit of getting disturbing at times, and light at other times. If you have triggers, you may want to take the warning labels seriously. Hoping to update twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday.
Also, I am a little crazy with pain and isolation and might stop writing, but I will give it an honest effort.
When mysterious portals start opening up around the world at large events, swallowing everybody, you’d think that would warrant some kind of danger pay when you have to sell hotdogs at a Comic Con, right? ‘No, of course not; what are the odds of that happening here, out of all the big events in the world?’
Well, Emma was always pretty good at beating the odds when it came to shitty luck.
Now she’s stuck in a strange dimension, where the normal rules don’t seem to apply, together with a costumed crowd who seem strangely happy about this whole thing.
At least, until the first people start dying.

He spends his leisure time playing VRMMO's, but he isn't the righteous hero or conniving villain, instead, he spends his time hunting down the rarest resources to craft the most powerful items he can. Today Karonite Industries newest VRMMO is launching and Darren is ready to play. Join Darren in a new world on his adventures in Age of Gods!
I had previously started writing this story but became dissatisfied because of my lack of experience. Now, Age of Gods is relaunching with the same premise but many many changes. I hope you will all enjoy this journey with me!

A man from our world is dropped into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with nothing but a watch on his wrist to make a life with. Luckily, it's one hell of a cool watch. Now if only he'd gotten the manual...
Genesis had become the biggest and most popular vrmmorpg in the world, with a massive part of the world's population playing. But after several years the games quests have started to become repetitive, and the nations have reached a status quo.
Not willing to let the game he loves fall to ruin, Matthew Harper has planned to shake things up...
Nightmares and hallucinations have plagued Heather Morell all her life.
Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child after the loss of her twin – a sister who never really existed – now struggling with her mental health at university, Heather teeters on the verge of giving up on life. A chance meeting ends in a revelation: she is not crazy, her visions are all too real, and probably want to eat her soul.
Embroiled with a crippled, bad-tempered magician and her self-proclaimed ‘bodyguard’, Heather rapidly descends into a world of terrifying magic and otherworldly monsters, in an effort to stay sane, bring back the dead, and maybe, just maybe, make out with cool older girls.

His name is Eight. Not really, but that’s what the System decided after a slip of the tongue. One moment, he was stepping out the office door on the way home, and the next waking up on a hillside below a town wall. Oh, and the gate guard drove him off, because he thought Eight was a monster.
Life’s tough when you’re trapped in an eight-year old body on another world.
The world has ended, and those worthy of it have received the chance for a new life in a new reality.
Zach grew in power and thrived in the post-Framework world. He became a respected leader, a shining example of what it meant to be good. But as the world ended, he had only one thought: to punish the monster that had killed the world long before the Framework ended it. Yet not even with his incredible power was he able to stand against the World Ender. His arrival in the new realty, the Infinite Realm, gives him the chance to grow stronger, to find the monster again—and make it pay.
Ryun survived the chaos after the arrival of the Framework by pushing harder than anyone else. He grew in power until he became the most powerful being that had ever walked the planet; but he is hated by the world, called a monster by all others, the World Ender. As the world ends and he steps into a new one, where people stronger than him have lived for centuries, he finds himself lost and without purpose. The only thing that had mattered to him had been lost to him long ago. He truly was the monster that people considered him to be, and he now finds himself wondering if this new reality has a place for someone like him—but he had never been one for lying down and dying without a fight. One world fell to his power, and another might follow.
Current schedule: Monday-Friday, no chapters on the weekends.
Framework is a story that will follow two main characters. The story will be told in two different time periods: Act 2 takes place in the present and follows Ryun and Zach in the Infinite Realm. Act 1 takes place in the past on Earth, and follows the two as they struggle to survive and grow their powers in the world changed by the Framework.
This story is a mix of LitRPG/GameLit and Wuxia/Xianxia, and it will have Classes as well as Cultivation systems. There are two main characters, and another two will be added later.
Lucas, codename Helix, is the combat techno-medic of Demon squad. It was their task to protect Station 37-H and project Goliath. All Lucas is certain of is that something went terribly wrong in what was going to be their last stand. He was prepared to meet them on the other side. Instead, he finds himself in a familiar place surrounded by faces he has never seen before. His last memory separated by centuries from the present.
His first priority is to find his squad. His second one is to keep the secrets of Goliath. His third priority is to figure out how to achieve the previous two because he and the entirety of Demon squad have become nothing but spectres in the annals of history. He has become forgotten.
In the wake of human-initiated Armageddon, Colin Callum will do anything to survive on the streets of fallout Buenos Aires. But when Colin is infected with a virus that will warp him from human to monster, the hard-core, never-wanted-to-be-a hero has only one choice left.
To fulfill a promise made to a dead friend. To enter Thorr’un, a fantasy world where Colin must choose a new name, a new identity and a new path. To figure out what the hell it even means to have Dexterity 20.
But as he encounters ancient kings, crumbling dungeons, active war zones and beautiful women whose names he can hardly pronounce, Colin must face two vital truths.
He never was much of a gamer.
And in the world of Thorr’un no deed, good or evil, goes unpunished.
Release Schedule: Monday - Friday

On Warnings: This is a high-octane, high-adrenaline, high-oxytocin story about mind-boggling adventure, terrifying monsters, a badass protagonist and, at times, the jaw-dropping women who fight alongside him.
Is there swearing? Hell yes.
Is there violence? Those monsters won't kill themselves!
Does he meet (and sleep with) gorgeous fantasy babes? Of course he does!
We live in a world of where many authors are afraid to include certain content for fear of scaring off their readers. I won't do that. I trust you. And if you trust me, you'll love my work.
It was an average day in Miami—then fractures in the sky appeared. A pulse from those cracks altered the population; some people's biology changed while others received magical and supernatural powers. After the chaos, the political drama ensued, followed by the discovery of portals that brought deadly creatures. They called this event "The Oscillation" and it changed Rachel's life forever.
Note: I've received some feedback that people don't like the foul language. This also included my mother, she wanted me to make a cleaner version for her. So, I thought I might as well release it alongside the more explicit version. I went back and rewrote the parts that have profanity in them. ^_^7
