Hey there everyone, I’m pleased to announce that I have a new microphone setup, and I practiced my narration skills. My short story Fragmented was a lot of fun to write, and I’m working on developing my horror skills in general. This is right along with my audio work, of course. I plan on eventually creating an entire audio book for Red Viper, the first book in my series.
The narration for my story is below! If you enjoyed it, please give it a like, or comment on this blog post here. I might do more like this with other stories I write, and if it gets somewhere, offer to read some other authors’ short stories on my channel.
Otherwise, I plan on updating this website very soon. I need to organize Character Corner, which is a gallery of art and credit for my characters from my “The Kingdoms of Blood” series. Also, I want to add editing work, more refined “ghostwriting” commissions info, and audio work to my Services tab since it is rather outdated.
Also, I do have a new trailer for my book series made by the glorious Bree. Please visit “The Angry Noodle” for more great content, she does such wonderful work. The video she made for me is below, and will be added to my website with credit:
(This is also the first time I’m learning how to embed a tweet, super neat!)
Anyway, there is a lot of good stuff coming from my end. I am halfway through with major edits to the next book in my series, and have designed its cover!
If you’re interested in a magical college with a lot of action and gore, please stay tuned! While it says “book four”, it will be a standalone book, in that you don’t have to read the first few books unless you want to get backstory/development on some characters that show up in this book. It’s the next book in order for the series, but I wrote it this way on purpose. I’ve world built for new readers to this book in case they wanted to skip right to the magical college
As a reminder, while the covers in my series for the first three books have been updated, the original ones will remain limited edition and return fairly rarely. I will update the website to include the old covers, as well, so they won’t be forgotten. Cheers everyone!
