Category: Founders Get it January 4th: SEEDS OF DOMINION

Unholy evil lurks in the shadow of a magical kingdom. When a duke and his family are butchered in their sleep, a beleaguered king commands his brother Rellen to uncover not only who committed the heinous murders but why. Was it sedition? Political assassination? Or is it the gruesome machinations of a blood-hungry demon goddess and her cult? Like fighting

Category: Founders Coming December 7: KHYVEN THE UNKILLABLE, by Todd Fahnestock!

A rising champion. A secret rebellion. A deadly crossroads. After forty-nine victories in the bloody Night Ring, Khyven the Unkillable is a celebrity gladiator. If he can survive one more battle, King Vamreth will free him and declare him a knight. But the king doesn’t play fair. Instead, for Khyven’s fiftieth “battle,” the king orders him to travel through the

Category: Founders Cowboy Bebop – Redux

This is a bit of a preemptive strike. Over the past forty years or so, I’ve been a hit-or-miss fan of animé. My favorite is MD Geist, but the next two titles share the second-place position. Those are Ghost in the Shell (all movies and episodes) as well as Cowboy Bebop. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m decidedly

Category: Founders Of Cats in Peril and Sausage

This blog is about a cat… or maybe it’s cats. It’s also about how the sausage is made. Make of those two metaphors whatever you wish. I just turned in the manuscript for my first novel in the Eldros Legacy. It’s called Seeds of Dominion, which is the first installment of my series The Legacy of Deceit. I’m not going

Category: Founders The Sea of Storms

The vast ocean loomed off the ship’s port side as they sailed close to the shore. Dark clouds swirled in the distance. Flashes of lightning illuminated the mass, popping high and low. A seaman leaned close to be heard over the wind. “The Sea of Storms is lively today,” he said to me. “Why is it called the Sea of

Category: Founders Fall Has Fallen and Movies Are Back

I have two things of note this morning. The first and most basic is that, for the first time since Spring, I’m wearing a lousy sweatshirt out in the workshop where I do my writing. This is not good news. This means that my old friend Summer is fading, and that cold, damp cretin Fall is coming around for another

Category: Founders Adding Definition to Characters and Plot Through Short Stories

I Just wrapped a short story that will be published by New Mythology Press this fall. The process for this particular story really stands out for me. Since creating the realms on Pyranon, my imagination skips from character to character and to their places with in the different stories taking place at the same time. I’m no George Martin, for

Category: Founders The Time Between Projects

I suppose I should clarify that headline. For, I suspect, most professional writers, the definition of projects has different meanings. For some, every writing deliverable is a project. For others, like myself, novels are pretty much all I consider to be my writing projects. Short stories and novelettes aren’t projects, they’re jobs. Right now, I find myself between the projects Paladin’s Light
