I’m hoping to begin posting a lot more writing-related content here in the next few weeks, as well as update the writing pages on this site. I’ll try to include some snippets and teasers here and there, as well as updates and assorted fun stuff.
Here’s a brief overview of what I’m passively working on:
The East Realm Series (working title): 3 books (a trilogy, if you will) that take on a somewhat fantasy-like vein, though without anything too fantastical. There’s no elves or dwarves or magic, so maybe considering it ‘alternate history’ might be a better descriptor. The level of technological advancement sets it perhaps around the middle ages or even classical. The writing style is from a narrator standpoint and while the story occasionally zooms out to the larger meta level, it usually focuses closely follows a group of four protagonists on their adventure.Currently ERS is in the editing phase.
The Yellow Dress Ladies: An immature group of clueless, naive, and bored guys join up to form a wannabe street gang in a small rural desert town. It’s a humorous romp with a loose plotline, likeable characters, and many random ‘wtf’ moments. It’s currently around a hundred pages and I write a chapter here and there every few weeks or month if the mood hits me
All Around Bend: It’s my travel guide for Central Oregon. It’s been on shelves for 3 years now. Go check it out at http://allaroundbend.com, silly.
Appalachia (working title): A post-apocalyptic adventure, following Carl as he leaves the comfort of town and his dull routine. He leaves his entire life behind him as he explores the wastelands, wilderness, and the remnants of society. It’s not too dark, but has a deeper philosophical aspects, as well as theme, setting, and characters. It follows in a similar narration style as the East Realms, that of an author (myself) who has found a journal or pieced together stories from the protagonist’s adventure and compiled the materials into a narrative. It’s currently around 200 pages and I’m likely to turn it into a series, as I’ve got more ideas and the books gettin’ quite thick.
Well, I said that I’d like to start featuring some writing here on the blog; but I’ve already written a bunch already ^. Instead, here’s some eyecandy. This is a before and after of the map that will be in the beginning of the second and third books in my East Realm Series.Really happy with how well it turned out (first one is pencil/pen on paper).
