Thoughts about writing my books versus publishing them

Hello, readers! Yes, I know what day it is. I will honor April Fools’ by refusing to give a damn, and posting something serious on April Fools’ anyway. So… no use dancing around this. I’ve been kind of a shitty person about trying to get people to buy my books in the past. At least, […]

Erotica Commission: Simple Pleasures

Hi, readers! My friend QueenEthelred (@EthelredArt on Twitter) commissioned me to write this erotica of her OCs, Ethelred (who, to paraphrase her own explanation, is not a self-insert per se, but is absolutely wish-fulfillment) and Chervil. There’s really nothing else to say, so here it is. I hope you enjoy!~ Simple Pleasures Trails of glowing […]

New Lore: Outer Devils and Urungeiste

Hello, readers! You’ll be able to locate these pages at any time from the Twin Spirals Setting Bible, but for now I wanted to make sure I called your attention to the goods: I’ve added a couple of articles (originally written on Twitter because I enjoy how the format inspires me to change my approach […]

January 2022 Update: Stories Told and Untold

Hi, dear readers! Lest the title confuse you, I won’t write an update post EVERY month. Only if, as now, I’ve had to make a major change in plans for some reason. I stated some then-plans during last year’s retrospective. I strongly recommend checking out that post if you’ve just found this blog: it provides […]

New Shared Setting: Prisoners of This Riven Earth

Hello, readers! I’ve been thinking for quite a while that I wanted to create a shared setting which I and other creators could use to tell stories together. Will one of those creators be you? I’m quite intrigued to find out! For now, give this setting bible a read-through. If it sounds like something you’d […]

Collected Tales of Machrae Diir #2

Hello, readers! Here’s the second collection of short stories originally published under my secret special Twitter account at Ashenvein Gate. I did say that if I did any further writing during the holiday season, you would not find out about it until the New Year, yes? As for the first post of the day, which […]

I Am Not Your Rep

(Edit, 4/16/2022: A few paragraphs down, I suggested that it would work nicely to read this as a matched pair with the entries in Tales of Machrae Diir #2. Now that my head is clear, I do not think any such thing! Read Tales Issue #2 by itself and leave this post while you can. […]

Hi readers! Nothing much to say besides the obvious–I’ve enrolled Sword of the Outsider in the Smashwords end of year sale for 100% off until the sale ends this January 1st! Now, as far as I know, this applies only to copies bought directly through Smashwords. I’d happily apply the same discount elsewhere, but so […]
