A prince sent into exile, without the means to fight back.

A young man trapped in an unfair world, without the status to bring about change.

Combined, they will have both means and status.

Armed with advanced knowledge from a strange world, will Prince Corco be able to cut through the injustice, regain his birthright and turn the country of his ancestors into a paradise of true peace, equality and prosperity?

"Okay, first step: Let's make some Brandy."

...that's a maybe then.

 

Author's note: I love the idea of kingdom-building novels and think the genre has a lot to offer, but I don't think many authors do them very well. Here is my attempt. The novel has a strong focus on politics and kingdom building, with occasional action and a bit of humor. Have fun.

After his master's death, Thurain leaves his rural home behind and travels to Heliana, the cramped city founded on the scientific progress of cultivation. Under a fake name, he aims to enter the Elemental Path Sect, the place of his master's death, to find both his killers, and closure.

However, surrounded by the strange and horrible wonders of Heliana and its mixture of heroes and villains, his master's death is not the only murder he may have to solve.

First attempt at a xianxia novel from me. To shake things up from the usual formula, the setting is more steam-punk than you might expect, and there are elements of murder mystery mixed in with the standard formula (though I'm not entirely sure yet how far to go with it.)

I wrote this a while ago for NaNoWriMo, only posting it now for various reasons. Enjoy.

Also, cover is highly temporary. I'll probably replace it with something nicer eventually.

Fight the System

Fight the System

After everyone is dead, and the world is gone, what is there left to do?

The arrival of the "System" on earth marked the start of the apocalypse. New social rules caused chaos, new races waged war against humanity. Throughout the chaos, Layne discovered his talents and proved a champion of the human race.

Yet when he was done killing, no other life was left on earth. In the process, he grew strong, far stronger than the system ever intended. Even so, the system moves him on, to continue as a player in a game he never wanted.

Armed with the combined strength of his entire planet, will Layne be able to overcome his masters, and fight the systemâ„¢?

 

This is a little side-project I was working on a while ago. If I feel like it and the audience response is good, I may continue this project at a later date. For now, I'll be posting the first three chapters, which work well as a self-contained short-story. So there will be some form of closure even if I don't continue the project.

Enjoy.
