The Indomitable, Part X: Holy Dalia

A new short story—The Indomitable, Part X: Holy Dalia—has been released!


The war has come. Lord Theodore has struck the first blow. Justine despairs, but with Mother’s Light in her hand, hope perseveres, if only for a time.

The Indomitable, Part IX: By Steel, By Faith

A new short story—The Indomitable, Part IX: By Steel, By Faith—has been released!


Justine awakes on a trading cog bound for the southern islands. The trials of the desert still linger in her mind, but how she came to the seas is muddied. Still, larger concerns await her: Captain Boris of the Seeker is bringing her to Master Irwin Kole. Too much time has passed since the last time they met, and Justine fears what the trader knows.


Week in the Realm: The Indomitable Concludes, Prelude to Darkness Release, and Chronicles

Woo, hi, folks!

This is the start of Week in the Realm, which will replace the Weekly Update. I will push it every Monday, and it will detail website features and content, information about upcoming releases, and anything else related to my literary efforts.

So let’s hit it.

The Indomitable short story series will conclude this week. I will be publishing By Steel, By Faith on Wednesday and Holy Dalia on Friday. That will conclude the free content from my upcoming release, Prelude to Darkness. Then, on Monday March 12, I will take down all of the free offerings on the website. These stories will be edited, revised, and compiled for the formal release. While the stories will be relatively intact for the release, there will be additional content for some of the installments (including The Indomitable), new short story series that I never offered for free (Terror of the Black Storm, Birth of Madness) and some new one off offerings.

That brings me to the Prelude to Darkness release. I am making very strong strides towards that March 30 release date, but there is a possibility I may need to delay it by an additional month. I will update everyone on the March 12 Week in the Realm with my final determination.

The last item I want to touch on is Chronicles. I wanted to start building that feature, but too much of my time has been consumed by finishing Prelude to Darkness. It is not a feature that I am abandoning, but I need to put it on the back burner until I have finished Prelude to Darkness. Look for it to officially launch in the weeks to come.

The Indomitable, Part VII: The Betrayer
