Happy New Year! I have several exciting projects planned, including publishing Vaironian Tides.
Vaironian Tides is part of a series, called The Agitator’s Code.
I’m excited to continue the adventures of Darion and Tolrek.
I’ll reveal the full cover for Vaironian Tides, closer to my 2018 publication date.
I’m publishing Vaironian Tides in 2018!
I’ve significantly rewritten what appears on this site.
More details to come soon, including a cover reveal!
As I mentioned in my Spring 2017 story update post, I sent Vaironian Tides to an editor. I’ve been busy doing significant revisions to it. Changes from the first draft include other information about Tolrek’s background and Darion’s abilities.
I plan to publish in the near future! I’ve already commissioned artwork for the cover and I’ll reveal it soon.
It’s Spring 2017! That means more exciting events for my stories. Here are updates:
Balance: I’ll begin another round of revisions for this.
The Architect’s Guardian: I’ll add more chapters soon. Highlights include details about Armando’s powers and Izdahl facing a massive challenge.
Vaironian Tides: I sent this to an editor! The critique will help me create a stronger story.
In the final chapter, Vaironian Tides, Chapter 41, Darion and Tolrek make plans for the future, ready to take on larger challenges. Here’s an excerpt:
Tolrek wasn’t sure how Darion’s parents would greet him. While Darion had been recovering, Tolrek had briefly spoken with Ryam and Saha, on several occasions. However, he’d thought that meeting them in-person would be daunting. No amount of assurance from Darion had lessened Tolrek’s nervousness.
After the tension of dealing with Meric, Darion and Tolrek get some much-needed relaxation at Ashrom’s villa, in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 40. Here’s an excerpt:
Tolrek laughed loudly and Darion decided it was best not to ask Tezza exactly what rumors she meant. Having teased them enough to her liking, she was attempting to leave the bed, when Najrina added to the madness. The hettira pounced, following Tezza’s example. One of Najrina’s paws landed on Darion’s groin.
Tolrek pushes for more information about Darion’s recently revealed powers, in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 39. Here’s an excerpt:
When Darion returned to Ashrom’s home, Tolrek was waiting for him. With Ashrom spending the night at Tezza’s place and Kyan in bed, there weren’t any distractions. Tolrek was glad for that, as he didn’t intend to let Darion side-step the pressing issue any longer.
Darion deals with Meric Treih for his actions against Vaironia and Tildar, in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 38. Here’s an excerpt:
“I assure you, this is no game,” Darion responded calmly, his state of mind that of the cold negotiator who had risen rapidly up the ranks. He opened the box, pulled out a meticulously designed platinum gauntlet and placed it onto his left hand. Tolrek looked at Ashrom, noting how keenly Darion’s older brother was watching the proceedings.
Darion deals with Tolrek’s frustration about the challenges he faced during the past few years, in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 37. Here’s an excerpt:
Darion covered Tolrek’s left hand, which had formed a fist on the table. Then, he squeezed Tolrek’s arm to soothe his lover, who refused the attempt at comfort. Instead, Tolrek stood and left the dining room, going out to the balcony. The crisp night air of the empire’s capital cooled his skin. He took several deep breaths, as he tried to get himself under control, gripping the marble banister of the balcony. A chunk of it crumbled and fell to the manicured lawn below. His eyes traveled the length of the balcony’s banister and saw that various cracks had appeared through it.
