It has been awhile since my last update. I do get lost in my fictional world and all. I will try to do better moving forward, and I do have some updates for today.

Further, the collection will include five books with eight different primary perspectives, which are: Continue reading Week in the Realm: Prelude to Darkness Update & Teaser Excerpt on May 18
