Feelings on Faces (King's and Mine)

Feelings on Faces (King's and Mine)

Throughout my journeys with commissioning character portraits, a failure of mine has been put out into the open: my failure to really ‘see’ some of my characters faces (the Humanoid ones especially). This is a weakness of my visualization and my mind’s eye. I know it and accept it, but it’s also relatively well hidden. This weakness is hidden well because the original main characters don’t have ‘normal’ faces. Cyclone’s head is a skull that is underneath a striking helmet....

How to Stop Wildfire FIFTH Anniversary

How to Stop Wildfire FIFTH Anniversary

Has it really been five years? It really has been. I can’t fathom it and yet at the same time, now, at the near end of this major arc with Emerald Haze, the years seem far too apt. It has been a long while since I first scrappily put out How to Stop Wildfire. That was a major accomplishment for myself. It was so small in a way, and yet, it was massive. It was the foundation of all that...

How to Stop Wildfire Fourth Anniversary

How to Stop Wildfire Fourth Anniversary

Time just flies by. Four years have gone by since I released How to Stop Wildfire. It was rocky and wild at first. I knew so little and then learned so much. Four years of writing and change. At the time of this writing, I have released six other books since then. I’m working on making it seven. Working on finishing out this set of four so in four years I’ve written eight books total. This process has made me...

How to Stop Wildfire Third Anniversary

How to Stop Wildfire Third Anniversary

Today is April 22nd, 2018. It is the third anniversary of the release of How to Stop Wildfire. It’s also my birthday, which is no coincidence, but I don’t care for making a fuss over birthdays. Anniversaries, specifically related to How to Stop Wildfire, specifically for third ones, however, are something I tend to think about more. These three years... How to Stop Wildfire was published April 22nd, 2015. Little less than five months later, Harmonic Waves was released September...

The Madness of Light Afterword (+ Recording!)

The Madness of Light Afterword (+ Recording!)

This afterword delves more into the plot and character process of the story than anything else. It's how process and prose intermingle.

Expansion Expression Foreword (+ Recording!)

Expansion Expression Foreword (+ Recording!)

And now I'm currently all caught up with forewords/afterwords. Here's the foreword/preface for Expansion Expression, which sort of kicks off the vibe for the novel and the series moving forward. It's definitely lighter than the other ones. As always, I enjoyed writing and recording it.

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

The last of the first four afterwords/forewords—the one for Of Fractured Edges. This...this one might be the most intense of them, emotionally. Longest as well for sure. Most spoilerific too, so beware.

Threads that Bind the Tempest Afterword/Explanation (+ Recording!)

Threads that Bind the Tempest Afterword/Explanation (+ Recording!)

Here we are again. This time with the afterword-thing for Threads that Bind the Tempest. This is probably the most disjointed one of the lot, but it makes sense given what Threads that Bind the Tempest is. I could have put this before or after the book, but I put it after. I don't know. It made sense there. Of course, I recorded myself reading it.

Harmonic Waves Retrospection (+ Recording!)

Harmonic Waves Retrospection (+ Recording!)

Here I am again with the recordings! This is the second of my additions to the novels. How to Stop Wildfire it felt natural to have a preface to explain the journey to it and explain it. With Harmonic Waves, my thoughts lingered on the content and what it meant rather than the journey so I chose to do a retrospection that is at the end of the novel. There are some spoilers within which is all the more reason...

The Cultivation of the Personal Project

The Cultivation of the Personal Project

The story starts like this: I write a story. It takes me many years to get to a point where it is passable. It takes a few more to make me proud of it. It will take less than one afterwards to realize how far I've come since it. But we're not there yet. I wrote a story and I thought I wanted to share that story. So I shoved into onto sub-par medium (Amazon Kindle) because I hoped everyone...

TiddlyWiki - A Revelation

TiddlyWiki - A Revelation

I've been radio silent lately on most things related to fiction writing. I've been the occasional review on food and whatever movie and TV show I happened to have words about, but as far as fiction goes, I've been dead. That has primarily to do with pulling in as far as publishing for the public and instead focusing inward. So what that means to say is that I haven't stopped writing completely. Editing has been slow on Expansion Expression, but...

2016 - A Year in Review

2016 - A Year in Review

So what happened in 2016? More than can be iterated here, certainly, but this is mainly a focus on what transpired in my writing career and how The Adventures of the Trinity and the One developed. Which isn't short list, to be sure, but it is definitely more focused. So where to begin? Well, let's start with the novels. 27/3/2016 - Threads that Bind the Tempest was released. 31/8/2016 - Of Fractured Edges was released. Two novels were published! Half...
