Release Date

It’s that time again.

The newest edition of my book, Elithius, is coming out December 7th.  After receiving some negative but insightful critiques a year ago, I’ve basically rewritten the book.  More has changed the style of my writing, however: everything from the names of the characters, to the cultures, to the worlds I endeavor to bring to life, have changed.

It’s the same story.  But it’s better.  More developed.  More intense.  More real.

And it’s coming.

Is Epic Fantasy Dead?

You know, Epic Fantasy?  Like Lord of the Rings material?  Is there still a place for this in the world?

More and more, I feel like I see Romance, Mystery-Thrills, and Science Fiction on the rise…but not so much fantasy.  Sure, there’s Urban Fantasy, maybe some “Paranormal” Fantasy that mixes some hot romance in there.  But the ORIGINAL fantasy?  The O.G. of Fantasy?  Where’s that at?

People don’t seem to have much time for fantasy.  Especially in the United States, where NOBODY has any time, we seem to prefer those heart-pounding standalone novels.  Mystery-thrillers that pack a punch.  Steamy romances that appeal to our guilty pleasures (eww).  Or a combination of the two in the form of a sexy vampire (why are these so popular?).

My theory is that epic fantasy novels a) involve too much imagination for the modern American or b) are too long, because there are very few standalone fantasy novels.

But isn’t the imagination and creativity worth it?  Isn’t the sense of journey, the sense of companionship built between the characters and the reader worth it?

I personally love fantasy, and I’d love to see it come back full-throttle.  I’m not just talking about my own series; I’m saying I’d love to inspire people to literally get OUT of this world and write about something beautiful.  Where did this all go?

As always, I want to know, What do you think?

BLEACH: DARK DOUBLES

Fan art Ichigo

Enter the world of Bleach once again! Why? Why not!? Deep within Hueco Mundo, a mysterious scientist in league with the Menos Grande discovers how to create extremely powerful clones of whomever he chooses. But the clones aren’t perfect; they were created to be evil, obedient warriors. Instead, they possess unnatural abilities and end up going haywire. Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends are faced with stopping and containing the clones before they can unleash a special power they all possess: a power that could be used to destroy both the World of the Living and the Soul Society.
