I think it's about time I start putting reviews on this blog. From now on, if I read a book that has less than a hundred reviews, I'll say my piece about it. I might hit my backlog, too. Plenty of books I've read that deserve more reviews. Here we go: Weapons of Disharmony by … Continue reading Weapons of Disharmony by Chad Retterath – A Review
Happy Holidays everyone! It's been a very long and interesting year. I've had a lot of good happen, a good bit of bad, but we made it through and it's time to celebrate. And how better for me to celebrate than to put all my books on sale? Through the Lichgate Illusion of Grandeur Devil … Continue reading Christmas Sale and Cover Reveal!
November was National Novel Writing Month. I started an experimental novel on October 21st or so, and now that novel is 58k words, with 42k of them written in November proper. How did I do? Not so great, apparently. I still have time to finish the story, or at least hit 50k words, but it … Continue reading So Long, NaNoWriMo2020
So, I found out yesterday that this website was spotted with ads. I assume it's been that way for years. Every visitor I've had here since day one (who doesn't use adblockers) has been bombarded with random garbage without my say-so. I'm a little horrified. That problem has been fixed. On to less embarrassing things. … Continue reading Website Woes / Writing Process
(Scroll down past this story for a news update.) The more atmophere, the better, right? I stepped into the new game shop on the outskirts of town, awed by the stone masonry that made up the place. I mean, sure, it was paper-mache or something, but it was cool. A very lifelike bird in an … Continue reading Immersion
Two and a half years ago, I started pleasure-writing some weird self-indulgent tale about demons, angels, and sport battles. At the time, I didn't know I'd finish the tale. I didn't know how hard it would be to write, or how much it would mean to me. But now that book is finished! Devil Game. … Continue reading Devil Game Released!
It's here! Illusion of Grandeur - Kindle The paperback version will be releasing in the next day or two... I think! Amazon is sometimes weird about things. I love this book, at least as much as the first one. Pierre is such a delightfully strange mind, and I hope his adventure is as fun for … Continue reading Illusion of Grandeur Released!
I've been working since before the release of Through the Lichgate, trying to give Thana's self-absorbed classmate Pierre a chance in the spotlight. The book is finally finished, and I couldn't be more proud of it! Illusion of Grandeur is available for preorder now! Illusion of Grandeur follows Pierre Chastain, a teenage illusionist in over … Continue reading Illusion of Grandeur available for pre-order!
It was a Saturday when a portal to Hell opened on my kitchen table. You would think that it'd be a Monday, or perhaps Friday the thirteenth. Nope. Saturday. It was Saturday morning, I was eating breakfast, and already my weekend was ruined. Cackling laughter erupted from the flaming hole in my table, then stopped … Continue reading DATE NIGHT WITH GOROTH
Draft 1.02 Golem Project in Progress Previous Chapter The inking room was grungy and dim. Wessel was greeted as soon as he got through the door, by a man who sat back against a desk. “How's yer shoulder, little mate?” Wessel rolled his shoulder at the prompting of the greasy, gold-toothed tattoo artist, prompting a … Continue reading Golem Project Part 2
