Bang!

That was the sound that ended it all…

After he closed his eyes and lost feeling in his body, Lev felt nothing... No pain, no irritation, no worries, no anger, no happiness, and no sorrow...

Writing note
This book was inspired by a nightmare. As many of my books are.

Intro- A visit from death. 

An old man born without eyes sits quietly on a hill above the village he guards. A cool early spring night. The moon kisses his skin, as the restless spirits of the land whisper. He finds his pipe and packs it, soon striking a match to it and puffing. He listens, the gossip among the air. Something takes his hand. His spirit eyes focus upon it. A pale headless child. His blood runs cold, as he is guided to his hut. The child is eager. Whispering, becomes a song. Some tune as old as time it's self. They enter and the child releases him, turning towards the old man sensing his fear, it forms a head. A soft smile. Yet the song lingers. Emry knows what is being asked of him, this spirit has a message. He moves his blind body to the fire side, tapping his pipe out. He gets the flames high and pulls his bag of trinquets and herbs. The child settles, a hand playing in the flames. Shaping them into dark images. Emry throws the bones and beads into the bowl nearby. Seeing he won't need them. He reaches to the flame, the spirits cold hand clasps his. The world fades. There is a shattering sound as dishes shatter, but where Emry has been taken he sees. Glass domes of the south burn, exploding. Ill people of the purity flee. Their skin boiled as they cry to their gods. Soon he is let go. He recovers enough to see the child spirit, headless again skip off. That old song still thruming. Emry doesn't fully understand. He stumbles after and stops in his doorway. A whinny of a horse, the smell of decay. His spirit vision catching the edge of a tattered bone horse. He falls to his knees and passes out exhausted.

The Power of Steam: The Revolution Begins (Third Draft)

The Power of Steam: The Revolution Begins (Third Draft)

Original Action Adventure Sci-fi Mystery Male Lead Female Lead Steampunk

Have you ever wondered how history would have been different if, in the age of the steam engine, people would have realized the amazing potential of steam power? Or if the scientific advances of the age became widespread and commonly available? Many of the inventions and discoveries of that bygone era, were only used in a limited scope or regarded as interesting curiosities. Perhaps, if there were competing groups of the well to do class that focussed on innovation and implementation of new ideas, perhaps the technological level of our world could have taken a great leap forward.

This story follows what might have been as our main characters step into the steam age that could have been.

Some people may consider this a steampunk novel, but it's more than that. It's a realistic historical fiction where every invention and device described is based on scientific principles and could have been produced with the technology of the time, if only humanity had embarked on a journey of scientific pursuit like that of the space age where there was a general feeling among the populace that advancement was not just useful, but imminently necessary.

The Concept

As the name suggests, Quick Reads, Random Scenes is a website dedicated to short writings of entirely random scenes, meaning they’ll have almost no connection to each other and may take place at any point in a figurative story.

I’ve always enjoyed being confused during a story. Not confused in the sense that I have no idea what’s going on; confused in the sense that I have no idea what’s going on… yet. The introductions, the openings, that first step into a new world, setting, or perspective is always the most enjoyable to me. Everything is new, and my imagination is entertained trying to uncover the conflicts/cultures/politics/settings/characters of this new world.

This is why all of my writings–my Quick Reads— will be independent from each other and may take place at any point in the story. That way it’s always new and will always keep your imagination running.

do have plans to write stories that exist within the same universe as other stories as a means of continuously developing a world. That’ll come when it comes.

The Content

The content itself will venture into many different genres and topics. Anything from post-apocalyptic to dystopian to high fantasy. I just write where my imagination leads me.

So rapture was a thing. You know, that event when God plucks all the 'worthy' people out of earth and leaves the rest to rot?

Well multiple raptures happened to line up and the gods decided it would be amusing to lump all of their rejects together. It's like a last 'fuck you!' before they leave never to be seen again.
