After a crusade against technology wipes out every last remnant of science, a horrific blood plague devastates mankind. In the wake of such despair, the desperate survive by capitalizing upon the misfortune of others.

Nerys Raphaen, an optimistic flower artist in a broken city, is an anomaly. But she is cruelly abducted, her blood harvested and inexplicably sold for prices that ruin lives, threatening to break her spirit. Then her enigmatic captor reveals that in her veins flows the key to their survival. He tells her she can save anyone. Given the chance at last to bring hope to an otherwise dark era, she never even considers questioning his method.

But because of Nerys…he does.

 

–PUBLISHED–

Today I pulled the trigger on my first book, THE BLOOD OF NERYS (synopsis at end of post). At the time of this posting, it is currently processing and not available for sale. It should hit most major online retailers within the next 3 days, and takes a little longer for Barnes & Noble.

Furthermore, I am investigating a promising print-on-demand option that’s cheaper than createspace. I will keep you updated as I know more.

In today’s vid I talk about finishing reading Malevolence, the status of my Achillea readthrough and publishing readiness, as well as the popularity of my Wiselike page, shopping for houses, talking to English classes about writing, and where to get some sweet gloves for keeping your fingers warm when you’re writing (linked below).

Hello all! Where does time even go? I’ve been plugging along at all things. Cuddling my newborn niece, reading, writing, editing, beta-ing for Frankie…being a Dungeon Master.

I’m reading it!

Hello all! Sam here!

This is a rather short one, but I’m pretty caught up in my job right now and am on my way out the door.

Pronoun Walkthrough

Sam again! Sorry about yesterday and not having that video ready to go. The screen capture software is extremely heavy. I even had to throw out the work I did on it yesterday and started completely over.

BUT! It’s here! I finally managed to make a video so that I can show you how awesome Pronoun is. Watch!

(I apologize… this was my fourth voiceover take and I stumbled a couple of times, particularly on the maths. Please forgive me.)
