Glitter City Knights / Spring Castle Legacy — Art Piece

Post Views: 27 Blue day.Ouch day. So, Art day.WIP, but fun so far. Missing a couple of characters (hello, Reaper Twins?) and need to adjust scales of individual characters for better fit … but … it’s a start.I think it’s a good start. For those of you unfamiliar, any character done in black and white is dead; most likely a member of the Afterliving. Jessica (bottom right) is both color & BW because she’s technically both alive and dead at the same time; a Necromancer. Constance (bottom left, third from left) is almost luminescent / surrealist because she is so full of life / magic; a Magi. Both novel series are available at https://books2read.com/ap/81e7eO/Michel-R-Vaillancourt If you have read any of these novels, and recognize any of these characters,…

902/PE Gaming’s Dual Universe FAQ

Post Views: 1,173 Howdy, folx! I’ve been really enjoying Novaquark‘s new MMO/RPG “Dual Universe” for the past couple of months. In that time, I often see the same questions from new players. Frankly, the new player experience is a bit thin and needs some serious reconsideration. If anyone at Novaquark wants to hire me, I’d be happy to lay the whole thing out for you. 😉 The Power of Search Engines being what it is, it makes sense to put this up where it can be found by newer and even older players. I’m going to be roughly grouping the Q&A of the FAQ by subject, which is how I keep it organized myself. This will be a semi-document, that I’ll periodically update. It’s accurate (to my knowledge…

Author Interview – Amanda Cherry

Post Views: 173 MRV: Hi, Mandy! Thanks for taking a few minutes to talk with me and the readers at Split Horizons. AC: Thank you so much for the opportunity! I am always thrilled for the chance to chat with fellow authors and connect with readers. MRV: I don’t usually do author interviews, but I understand you’ve had a bit of a special collaboration with this novella. Can you tell us how it happened, and how that feels to you? AC: Yes. This book has been the absolute wildest ride. Four years ago (!) our editor at DefCon One proposed an anthology where those of us with pet/favorite heroes would team up with one another to write short stories featuring those heroes teaming up—the more unlikely the pair, the better.…

“Afterliving for Guys” — Cover Reveal & Pre-Order Announcement

Post Views: 184 Hello, everyone! I’m very happy to show off the eBook cover for my new novel, “Afterliving for Guys“, a paranormal romance set in a fictional city on the Florida Gulf Coast known to its residents colloquially as “Glitter City”. In the summer of 1996, an innocent woman is murdered in a graveyard and less-than-innocent arms-dealer is murdered on their yacht, resulting in an unlikely alliance between an infamous member of the Vampire Secret Police, and a Nun from Vatican Special Forces. In the neon-and-shadow nights of Glitter City, no one can be trusted, and the lies and manipulations abound. Can Gabriel Lafleche, known by those who fear him as ‘The Fist’, and Sister Adrielle Seton, his partner-of-convenience, figure out what’s going on before counter-plots and…

Writestorm 2022 Continued

Post Views: 241 Since a picture is worth a thousand words, plus or minus an ALT tag: The tentative title is “to Arise In the Fall“; It’s not perfect, but it’s got the right vibe. This one almost came out too fast. I’m going to need to let it sit for a couple days and then go back over it for all the “senses” stuff that should be in scenes. But, the core story is there, including the two primary conflicts; internal and external. So I’m figuring it’ll pick up another ten thousand or so words. I usually multi-pass everything to the point where first draft is just a spell check and a grammar check away from being last draft. I do a couple of read-alouds looking for…
