Charmers is my first professionally published story (I should really add that to my author bio), which I am very excited about, even now.
In My Defense Release and Author’s Note
This is the story that received an honorable mention in Elegant Literature's "World Builders" issue several months ago, and after a lengthy internal debate, I decided to post it directly to IGC Publishing instead of seeking out other platforms for it.
Charmers is Published!
My submission to the March Elegant Literature contest "Gambler's Grief" was accepted for publication and is available to read now.
Blood Magic S3:E12: Balancing Act, Part Two Release
Did I do it? Did I stick the landing on this three-year series, some three hundred sixty thousand words of story? Only you, dear reader, can answer that question, but I think I might have done it.
Blood Magic S2:E12: Pifecha, Part Two Re-Release
It might sound from those two paragraphs like I don't think this story is any good, which is not true - it is quite enjoyable, for all my above griping and critiquing.
Blood Magic Season 3 Bonus Episode: A Spiritual Journey Release
Is this doing that thing that authors are always accused of, where I fake readers out with a character's 'death' only to have them return later? Not exactly.
Blood Magic S3:E11: Balancing Act, Part One Release
It's finally happening: the series finale, the last Blood Magic story. This is where we see if my efforts to improve my endings have paid off, because I don't only need to satisfactorily conclude a two-part episode, or a season, but the entire series that you've been following for three years.
Blood Magic S2:E11: Pifecha, Part One Re-Release
I didn't have many changes to make when I sat down and did revisions on Pifecha's first part, which is mostly a good thing - it means that I wrote a good story in the first place.
Dragon’s Hoard Release and Author’s Note
It takes a certain arrogance to be an author, an arrogance to believe that you have stories worth telling, stories that other people should want to read and enjoy, and, perhaps more importantly, an arrogance to keep believing that through what is inevitably a lengthy process of submission and rejection before publication.
Blood Magic S3:E10: Principles Release
It doesn’t come up a lot in my writing on the site, but I’m something of a Star Trek fan, and the style of storytelling utilized by that franchise was certainly in the back of my mind while I was writing the outline for the Blood Magic series. Two episodes particularly stand out for that influence, and both of them involve Pifecha: Strange Lands, and this one.
