Also, self-promotion and social media presence can be really draining to where I can’t word sometimes. So, anyway, the news is my¬†newsletter. If you follow me on Twitter, youContinue reading “News To Me”

About Your Appearance

It’s out there. It constantly murmurs, trying to communicate a susuruss of thoughts, ideas, and sinister wishes. What does it want? To escape. No, it already¬†has escaped.

It desires to corrupt until everything is a festering, rottingContinue reading “Whisper of Madness”

Descent Into Madness is nearing the halfway point of first-round edits. I’m telling you, this is probably my favorite book in TheContinue reading “Progress!”

Orc Orc Orc!

Meet Orvaril
