New Upcoming Project: Legends of Lasniniar

Whenever I write pretty much anything, I do a fair amount of work beforehand on world building and character backstory, so I have a good feel for my characters’ motivations, and the circumstances that lead to where the story begins. This means I usually have lots of notes and ideas floating around that go beyond what ends up getting published…


The Plan:


I thought it would be fun to explore these loose-end ideas in a regular publication that focuses on the World of Lasniniar Series. That way, fans of the series can have access to new material each month while I continue to work on longer projects.


Each issue will contain one story, usually in the novelette range (7,500-17,500 words). These stories will include familiar characters from the Lasniniar Series that have already been introduced, as well as some new ones, and will take place across various points in time. They will explore origin stories, character back stories, historical events of Lasniniar’s history, and some will just be pure adventure fun. 😉


How it Works:


Individual issues will be available from the major ebook retailers and this site for $2.99 each. A one-year subscription is also available exclusively through this website:

Current Status:

The first several issues are already written; I just need to format them. And for anyone who’s interested, the first issue will be a Barlo and Iarion adventure. (Actually, ‘misadventure’ might be a better word in this case… :P)
