Another short story to tide you over. I’ll probably write a few more that intertwine with this one from the perspective of other characters, but this should stand alone quite well, as will the others.
The Mother focuses on a woman who has had a rough life, but that changes with the addition of something new.

First off, a happy new year to everyone. Hope it turns out to be a good one for all of you. With that it’s time for the first story of the new year. It’s a short, sci-fi themed romp, exploring the perils of integrating technology with our own bodies. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

This year I hope to finish at least two of the unfinished novels I have kicking around. I’m 44 000 words into one of them and the others is ~83 000 words in and very close to being finished. We’ll see how long it takes to start putting out chapters of that. Meanwhile I’ll probably post a few more short stories, though with no solid schedule. Hope that’s enough to tide you over 🙂
So while we’re waiting for me to finish some of the longer stories I’m working on I figured I’d break the silence with a short story. It’s sort of sci-fi and comes with my usual dark outlook on things. Hope you enjoy it.

I’m thinking there might be one or two more short stories before I get to posting something longer. Hopefully I’ll have things ready sooner rather than later, but we’ll see.
So I wanted to write some horror. I’m not quite sure I nailed the atmosphere or even the horror element, but here it is. I hope you like it.

Next week or the week after I’ll start posting the last part of The Broken Worlds trilogy. Look forward to that 🙂
This short story is relatively new. Somewhat inspired by the anime movie The Empire of Corpses. It was a cool concept that didn’t quite live up to its potential. Still, it struck a writing nerve and out came this little depiction of trench warfare. Hope you like it.

We’ll see if I manage to get something else out next weekend.
So I wanted to write something with some sci-fi in it, maybe practice writing a fight scene. And out came this piece. It follows Ethan and Emma as they hunt down relics from a war.
Here we go with the third chapter of The Persecuted. It is a memory chapter — Adan thinking back on what has happened in his life — so it is a bit short, but important none the less to build his character. There will be more of them, some longer, some shorter, but I hope you will enjoy them.

To compensate for the short chapter, here’s a little short story for you to enjoy as well. It follows Paul as he tries to report his wife missing to the police, but the service he gets turns out to be less than sane.

Hope you have fun reading these 🙂
About time I continued this series. For those of you who do not remember, Tales From Ramyn is a series that focuses on the city of Ramyn and a number of its inhabitants. It’s a way of exploring and expanding the city to give it more life.
The Clubbers follows Denny and Irv as they go about their daily business. They’re clubbers. They find some of the more exotic visitors to the city of Ramyn and capture them to be sold on for money. This time, their hunt doesn’t go quite as planned.

In case you haven’t read it, here’s a link to the first part of the series. You don’t have to have read it, but if you enjoy this one you’ll probably enjoy it too. It’ll also show you how the stories are connected. It’s very loose, but it’s there.

New chapter of The Persecuted this Sunday. Look forward to that 🙂
It has been a while since my last post. Too long. Hopefully with this I’ll get into the groove of things again. Kicking off a new series always feels good, though none of these have anything to do with the world of Balaria.
So here goes.
The Persecuted follows Adan as he tries to survive a world that wants him dead only because he’s different from others. It is a dark tale and the main characters isn’t what you’d call a hero. Often he comes off more as a villain. Anyway, I hope you like it. I hope to post a new chapter weekly, though it might be bi-weekly. But no bigger gaps than that between chapters.

As a bonus here are two short stories I’ve put up on deviantart, but never got around to posting them here.

I wanted to write something with the Alien/Species movie vibe. I hope I managed to do that with The Robbery.
Link: Post Life
Post Life is a more reflective story about what comes after death. Remember to bring a paper bag with you. You might need it if you stare at the light too much 😉
So I’m starting a new series. Tales From Ramyn is a collection of loosely connected short stories. The main focus is on exploring the city of Ramyn through the eyes of different characters. Some might have appeared in previous novels, but most are completely new. You don’t need to have knowledge of the world before jumping into these and you don’t really need to read these in any particular order, though doing it in the order published would be advisable.
The Street Urchin is the first in the series and introduces us to a young boy of the streets and his attempts to keep himself fed.

Updates to this series will be sporadic, but hopefully not too far between. I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂
