Audiobooks with a twist

A question I always get asked is “do you have audiobooks?” With being an independent author, it’s difficult but not impossible to produce my own. After looking at some options, I’m excited to announce that in January 2023, I’ll have an audio option for my books. What’s the twist? They’ll be available in podcast form.Continue reading “Audiobooks with a twist”

It was on back in the 2000s and the premise of the show was a vampire worked in a big city as a private investigator. Something about thisContinue reading “Hollowshine: Why this story?”

The Maiden of Caldara Anniversary Event: Magic Keepers

When creating the world of Caldara, I made a ton of Magic Keepers. It was a lot of fun come up with deities that were personifications of flora and fauna. But with the process of writing a story, many things get cut. Sadly, that was true for some of the Magic Keepers created. So toContinue reading “The Maiden of Caldara Anniversary Event: Magic Keepers”
