Updates for Upcoming Writing

On edging away from fanfiction to original works

I’m writing less and less fan fiction lately. Obviously. I mean, I went from writing dozens of pieces of fan fiction a year (I went from writing 400k words a year to less than 70k) to less than twenty in … Continue reading

This is a story about a lonely snake demon, a grouchy god with a sweet center, and the sentient temple that thinks that they’d be perfect together.

Enjoy! Continue reading
