Blackwood Company (A novel of grimdark sword and sorcery)
ONGOING
71 pages

Sorela, a frustrated court wizard, is tasked with finding her High Lord’s son who went missing in a border skirmish near the cursed forest known as the Blackwood, or else he will go to war with his perceived enemies. As a mage, Sorela must support a higher ideal, and prevent this war from happening. To confound her troubles, Sorela's wool-brained handmaiden, Leisa, has insisted she come along as part of her trials, so that she may prove she deserves admittance to the Mage Academy and tutelage under Sorela in the immediate future. Against the mage's better judgment, she allows the girl to accompany her on this most important quest, as she and her lord's Captain Commander set out in secrecy with a band of barely trained boys.

What’s missing from Sorela’s company are swords with experience. That’s where the questionable travelers come into the fold…

 

Blackwood Company is a completed short novel of approximately 42,000 words/168 pages. I will be releasing a chapter daily.

WAKIAGARU
ONGOING
399 pages

Having just escaped the fall of a dynasty, Lawrence Kazwick, a mercenary mage at the brink of death due to wounds sustained in recent battle, flees with his loyal retainer, Ishi, to the Imperial capital of Mikuma.

Saved by a dancer named Sakura who is to perform for the Imperial Emperor, Lawrence soon finds himself in a country at the knife’s edge of an imminent end. With friends both old and new, he must find a way to preserve the lives of the people around him—and quite possibly gain a fortune in the process.

 

WAKIAGARU is a fast-paced thriller-style fantasy. The project is complete and I'll be releasing with a frequency of two chapters a day, possibly more in the future, as the pacing speeds up considerably.

The Reconnoiters is a fast-paced thriller-style NOVELETTE of approximately 52 pages (finished) set in a pseudo-Japanese, high fantasy world with martial arts combat. I'll be uploading a chapter every day. There's five chapters.

This story was also awarded an Honorable Mention in this year’s fourth quarter of The Writers of the Future, which is the largest science fiction and fantasy contest in the world.

Acheron, keeping you, and your family, safe, by keeping them…where they belong! Support the United Systems Alliance penal system, for a safer tomorrow.

Great commercial. But that place is a total hellhole worse than death for many, and everybody knows it. The convicts are even having children. They’re supposed to be sterilized, but that costs too much, if the scandals are to be believed. Either way, Dan doesn’t care. He has a job to do—and that’s to get that lizard-ambassador out of there. How her ship crashed on that rock in the first place is an interesting mystery. Something big is at play here...
