Candle’Bre, The Reckoning: Book I – Darkness Falls, MultiMedia Presentation

October 22, 2012 in Completed, Featured, Freebie, Other

Hello and thank you for taking the time.

I’ll not keep you from the story for long, but I wanted to put a short note here for those who may have landed in this place by accident or happenstance.

Candle’Bre is a unique fantasy world, built from the ground up. In the original vision, the world was designed and developed for a computer game, but in pursuing that project, we discovered that we needed a static frame of reference to build the game around. A “Game Bible,” if you will, so I started writing one.

Ultimately, that side project took on a life of its own, and a four book series grew out of the original idea.

This is the first of the four, and I’m making it available here, free, but for a tweet, for one simple reason.

Taking a chance on an author you’ve never heard of is fraught with risk. Making this entire first volume available to you for naught but a Tweet removes all the risk from the equation. By the time you reach the end of book one, and probably a good deal before that, you’ll know if you like the work or not.

That said, I’ll get out of the way and let you dive right in! To get started, just click on the image of the book’s title, or click play on the video below for a brief introduction. Enjoy.

PS: I’ve closed comments on the story blog itself, but if you’d like to comment on it, please head back this way and do so!

Bad Company – Illyriad Fan Fiction

October 14, 2012 in Freebie, Ongoing, Other

Okay, I admit it. I’m an Illyriad junkie.

I don’t spend a lot of time playing games any more. To my way of thinking, if I’m playing games, then I’m not designing or writing, or creating.

Of course, a little downtime does a body good, so I do allow myself some indulgences now and again, and Illy is one of them.

Totally addicting, highly recommended game. Join me!

Project ongoing since February 2012
