Empires and Kingdoms from all over value the treasures hidden within the depths, however entrances to The Network are far and few and rarely explored as metallic entities known as the Jötnar guard its very depths.
Seidr, also known as sorcery, is the foundation of what humanity calls their power in what they refer to as the art of 'Kindling'. To Kindle means to set the soul aflame, it is to borrow power from the Goddess Oracle herself and the world around us. It is this energy which enables all who are born of the goddess to use Kindling, the ancients referred to this energy as Thorium.
Among the many who can kindle are a special breed of individuals known as Salvagers. Whether it is in the pursuit of knowledge, artifacts of power or immeasurable wealth they all risk their lives in an effort to explore the perilous depths of 'The Network'.

Incapable of Kindling, he possesses a lineage mostly forgotten that he seeks to better understand. The fate that awaits him is likely one he never imagined for himself as he journeys to unravel the secrets of this world.

Their lives and lessons are thrown totally off-course by the arrival of Nytep, a Lovecraftian god of Chaos who delights in toying with mortals.
     Nytep takes an immediate interest in July and becomes a secret secondary tutor to Emma--but what starts as a game to him will grow into something much more meaningful (and dangerous) for everyone involved. After all, Chaos forces change, whether it’s wanted or not.

Genres: Cyberpunk, SciFi, Science Fantasy, Romantic Fantasy

Note: Will contain an alternative relationship dynamic.

Does not follow the reverse harem formula.

Is closer to real poly relationships, such as nesting groups.



To the Creshe Empire, I’m just a number.

I’ve spent the past five years in isolation and under study. With my home razed by a Syldrari attack, my mind damaged, and nothing but white walls and a viewing window around me, I dedicated myself to two things: training my body, and reading any book they allowed me to have.

The Empire wants me to serve, to use the inhuman power the Incident stirred within me. Technically, they asked, but it wasn’t much of a choice. It never is. Serve, or… I refused to be a mindless slave. My life was taken from me once. Never again.

With the Empire moving forward with their xenophobic plans, they needed someone capable of killing Syldrari—and I was just that. A tool they could use, a tool they thought they could manipulate. Needing me was their first mistake. They gave me leverage, I named my terms.

Now, after five years, my life can begin.

He wants revenge. She wants vindication. The Nightmare wants their souls.


Titus escaped Nivandor the first time by the skin of his teeth, and he was perfectly happy never to set foot in that world again. So when his lord proposes a sight-seeing trip back to the tumultuous, dragon-infested lands, he politely refuses. Of course, Titus has no say in the matter thanks to a deal he made with his guild stating that wherever his lord was, he had to be, all in the name of paying off his student loans.  As Titus steels himself to revisit the land of nightmares past, another nightmare looms just around the corner, ready to sweep him and his lord away forever.

For a trip to Nivandor never ends the way one expects it to, and only the cunning make it out alive.

Genre: Adventure, Psychological, Grimdark

Valin Frost was a common thief from earth with little desire to risk his life in the tower.  However, a twist of fate plunged him through its large, onyx doors.  Now,  Valin must join the ranks of the mana wielders, master his abilities, and learn how to fight if he plans on surviving the trials of Helion’s tower... and perhaps, one day carving his name into the book of legends.

Hi.  Hope everyone's doing well.  Here's my story

https%3A%2F%2Fi.postimg.cc%2FxThL92Hw%2FUntitled.png

Short blurb: Young Saya purposefully poisoned herself for a better life.  It isolated and hardened her but became useful for battling Orcs.

It's YA Modern Mythological Fantasy
It's got mysterious fruits, orcs, elves, Tengus, and shapeshifting fairies.

Prologue is 3rd story, the rest is 1st person POV.  Think a darker, smarter Percy Jackson.

Sample of 1st person POV starts at "The Beckoning"

My story has been complete for quite a while, but I would like (hope) to see more activity with readers. 

https%3A%2F%2Fwww.royalroadcdn.com%2Fcovers-full...1594019888

Link: AN UNCERTAIN DUALITY

A female graduate student works toward her Ph.D. in quantum Physics and moonlights as a fashion model to make ends meet. She must uncover the secret science of teleportation and discover her forgotten past in order to fight an evil organization from taking over the world. She will have to use ALL her feminine smarts and talents to defeat them.

No smut. No swearing. No gratuitous violence. 

An Uncertain Duality is a satirical, futuristic comedy adventure. It is sometimes funny, sometimes silly and sometimes outrageous, but never takes itself seriously. Starts off lighthearted, but grows into a larger-than-life, outrageous, EPIC by the end. It touches on politics, world order, technology, spirituality and undying love and devotion. 

It contains:

Pictures of pretty girls
Herbivore men
A mad scientist
A deranged villain
Cute teenage identical twin girls
Quantum physics
A tsundere pop idol
A love triangle
Military guy with a gun
World politics
Philosophical musings
Larger than life story

Looking for an epic Xianxia? Try out this novel.

Meet Edward Alexander, a mortal boy walking the path against gods and immortals, fighting to the end to rewrite his destiny, and change the grand scheme of things.
Can he really change the grand scheme of things? Or maybe he himself is the Grand Schemer? To know the answer, follow Edward Alexnder on his journey to demonstrate the Art of Mortality.
