Okie dokie. This will probably not be seen often, as it is the fifth of January, but better late than never!

Autumn Town is packed with witches. But, not the type in storybooks. No warts or long pointed noses, no cackling laugh or claws for fingers. The sight of a candle burning above your newborn’s head is considered a blessing. A sign that your daughter will be something great. A chance for her to flourish at the most prestigious witch school. The Mistball Academy. No one suspects that a rebellion might be brewing right under those very grounds. No one suspects where the monsters come from. 

In the center of it all, 14-year-old Lucinda Mist stands. She was born on the day of the blue moon, a day that happens once every ten thousand years. A prophecy had predicted that she will gain unimaginable powers. The burden that comes with the gift was left unspoken, for fear it may be true. On the first day of Mistball Academy, she meets Hexa Luckberry. A girl just like her. Two powerful girls, residing in the same place. Innocent. Weak. Unprotected. How could the monsters resist the chance for revenge? To take back what is rightfully theirs? Lucinda and her friends try to navigate their way through a maze of questions and possibilities as strange things start to happen. Glowing red eyes. Moving shadows. Scattered corpses. Clues head to dead ends and pursuing the one important lead they have might mean death.

Hello all. 

If you're interested in a dark fantasy isekai litRPG novel where the main characters have been assigned the role of the villains, then take a look at my novel, Undetermined. 

Be prepared for lots of gore, death, trauma, insanity, chaos, and destruction. My main characters have more than just a few screws loose, and the heroes aren't going to defeat themselves.

Hey guys, I've been working on this story for a couple of years now and wanted to see how well it does story wise. I plan on making it an ongoing series since I have the whole story planned out. I'm also planning on making this into a manga so I'd appreciate it if you give any kind of criticism. 

Link: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/39038/something-different

Synopsis:

Nole Fulgur is your average 17 year old teenager living in the hood where riots and protests occur on a daily routine. He sees the lies and deception used by the people to convince themselves that destroying properties and acting in violence will help change the world for the better, as well as the government taking advantage of the chaos for their own political gain. As someone who once wanted to travel the world to experience the good in life, Nole is cynical to everything around him, believing that he'll never have opportunity or the skills needed to leave the hood. He is numb to all of the corruptions of the world and wishes to be left alone from all the problems around him. 

One day however after encountering one of the world most notorious serial killer, Nole is given the power of immortality and the ability to channel lightning throughout his body. With his newfound powers, Nole is now targeted by the people and the world government for his connections to the serial killer and quickly discovers that there are other people with unworldly powers with their own plans to take control of society. Along the way, he struggles to fulfill his dreams of living freely and exploring the world due to the danger he possesses. In a battle to keep his sanity in tact, Nole's morality is put to the test as he fights, manipulates, disrupts, and destroys his way through those posing as an obstacle for him.

Genre: Mystery

https%3A%2F%2Fwww.royalroadcdn.com%2Fcovers-full...1607541061

A slow burn illustrated Novel for people who just want to watch a slowly moving car crash that starts off bad but gets so much worse. Heavy focus on character interactions and drama, that gradually gets involved with the secret horrors behind the smog.


Synopsis
As the smoke and smog spill into the sky, many have accepted it as just the way things are. Even while the Ildens get's colder and colder with each passing year, and no one seems to care.

Three people who shouldn't be close find themselves forced to work with each other. But will their efforts only help to make things worse?

At this point does it actually matter how much worse it can get?

I've recently uploaded part 1 of my post-apocalyptic lesbian romance short story, Destination: Tomorrow! It has 8 parts in total.

Sara has her own rules during the apocalypse: keep moving, stay quiet, and keep to yourself. When she meets Katina, those rules go out the window.

While Sara tries to suppress her budding feelings for this strange, new girl—because who has time for romance when the dead rise?—the two must fend off savages and the infected if they want to survive to see tomorrow.

I've recently started posting Chapter 4 of my science fantasy web novel The Bloodlet Sun which follows the second-in-command of the starship Forseti, racing towards a wormhole on the the distant frontiers of the Thorian Empire in the hopes of finding the key to faster space travel and to propel Humanity to the forefront of interstellar politics.

My web novel follows an array of other POV characters, both on the Forseti and off - including a Human woman raised on a distant moon wondering if her people had come from the stars and whether they're still out there, and a hot-headed Mraboran diplomat trying to make the best of her new position on a boring backwater planet called Earth.

Hello Everyone,

as a new author, I need mostly critical feedback to improve my writing. My current story is a non-litRPG high-fantasy fiction with a focus on medieval swordplay, mutations and superhuman abilities (which are being explained) and later high fantasy with magic.

Here is the link and synopsis:

Children of Nemeah | Royal Road

Something evil lurks in Nemeah. Changelings possess ordinary citizens and turn them into horrific monsters with terrible capabilities. 

The only group able to deal with this threat is the mysterious Red Brigade. Empowered by the goddess Akali, they gain the strength needed to kill these unfortunate souls. Until a normal guardsman, Siegfried, cuts down one of the changelings.

Alone.






Children of Nemeah is a fantasy adventurer that focuses on character growth, magical powers, dangerous enemies, and the dynamic between its heroes.

Risen

Synopsis:

The city, my city, had once been alive in a way that was hard to describe. Thriving, active, hopeful. Vibrant.

But life, as I had come to learn, sometimes possesses only the most tenuous of grasps. Finally, in the end, it became my city - mine alone

I was, after all, the only one left.

Worse, it was entirely my fault.

There was red in my ledger that could never be wiped clean.

Not while I still lived, anyway.



This story follows Eran, a man who became the opposite of everything he had ever wanted to be; in a world where superpowers began to appear in a rare few, his lack of control over his own power relegated him to the role of a terrible villain - the Reaper, named so for the countless lives that he absorbed and made his own, each only furthering his deadly lack of control. Gone mad with guilt and isolation, he strove for a single heroic act - his own demise.

Death was less permanent than he hoped. Centuries later, he woke to a changed world and in a body not his own. Unfortunately, his power came with him. Yet this time, things would be different. This time, he had a chance to bring it under control.

He could never truly make up for the things he had done; he could never achieve redemption.

That wouldn't stop him from trying to be a hero.

This is my take on a classic cultivation story in a fantastical world, without the bogus face slappings and cliches of Chinese authors. There won't be transmigration, reincarnation, or a system. The MC will have some cheat powers but they are all completely enclosed within the world and make sense.

The novel is currently approaching the finale of the first arc. Looking for feedback, reviews, and also, I just want to promote it so more people can enjoy the work. 

Thanks.

Here's a gamer fic set in the multiverse after MC dies. I like dark stories, so this fic will be dark, even if there will be fluff and lighthearted situations from time to time. Betrayals, schemes, world-building (Probably multiverse building), progression, and did I say this was a gamer fic? I mean, literal [My life became a video game].

Synopsis:

Soo... Hello? Why am I doing this? Ugh... Anyway, name's Sethsamm, no last name. Why you ask? Well... it all started with me waking up and having this RPG-like window in front of me. Sounds like one of the many mangas' I read, funny. So I got this window, then it explains that my life is now a video game. And then shit hits the hay...

Dishonor

Are you looking for something a bit different? Dishonor is a gritty Dystopian novel set far in the future of Earth. Female lead and some dashes of romance. Publishing a chapter a week until I have published everything I have already written. I have about 120,000 words written total for the story.

Synopsis:

I am Dishonored. I am the lowest caste in a city of honor. I live in a prison with only the promise of death. I am a mouth to feed in an overpopulated city that no one can leave.

The City was built by the wealthy to withstand a nuclear blast, and it did; leaving its citizens trapped within its twisted sanctuary. A classist honor system developed that ensured the wealthy maintained their place within the walls, and the less fortunate were held prisoner. Liv was born as one of the most honored citizens of the city; one of the noble class. After her father was executed for treason, she was striped of her honor, and without honor, she was nothing. Facing life in prison with the criminal scum of an overpopulated city that could care less if the lowest caste died, Liv is determined to regain her honor and former status. With nothing left to lose, she is willing to do anything to avenge her father and regain her honor.
