Work Page – Updated

I have updated the Work page of the site will the following pieces of information:

Shadow of Aether – I have included the blurb for ‘Shadow of Aether’ and have moved it to the top of the Work page in a new ‘Coming Soon’ section. I will add links to the page for orders as soon as they go live.

CEA Greatest Anthology – I have replaced the old link with a direct link to the Amazon page where the book can be ordered from.

Untitled Anthology – I have added the anthology about Orbis to the ‘In Progress’ section. This is a project I am particularly excited about, however my plan is to release this book after ‘Nomadic Guardian’ so it will be a while until it is released. Due to the nature of the book being an anthology, I will release small snippets of it on my website over time.

Current Projects

This post is intended to clarify where I am with my current projects and my intentions for each project.

Just Another Day – My short story that has been published in the CEA Greatest Anthology Written. This can be read by purchasing the book from here.

This short story serves as a prequel for an upcoming series. The series in question will be published online episodically. It will be available on several websites for free, including this one. The current working title for the series is Omega.

Currently Untitled Novella – The Novella is coming along nicely and is currently being edited and redrafted. My intention is to publish it as a stand alone story on Amazon.

Anthology – As well as the novella, I have also decided to publish an anthology of stories set on Orbis. The short stories will focus on various characters in the world of Orbis, helping to expand the world. Speaking of which…

Short stories – One of these stories is called Aura, focusing on the first school days of the Unitas known as Aura from Nomadic Guardian, as well as the relationship between her and her mother.

Nomadic Guardian – Very little has changed since my last post about my novel. When the novella and the anthology are finished, I will turn my full attention back to this, making sure that the edits match up with the rest of the stories set within Orbis.

That about sums up all of my current projects. I will post updates whenever possible to inform you all about my work, but I intend to put my best efforts into each individual story. Therefore, it may take a while before the stories are published, but I believe that this is for the best.

CEA Greatest Anthology – Available Now

Just Another Day

I have updated the Work page on my site to include both the blurb and information about ‘Just Another Day’ – my short story that is going to be included in the World Record Attempt anthology by Celenic Earth Publications.

World Record Anthology

I have submitted a short story that is going to be included in a World Record Attempt short story anthology.

The anthology is being published by Celenic Earth Publications and will include contributions by approximately 100 authors from across the world. To watch a YouTube video explaining the attempt in more detail, click here.

My story is called ‘Just Another Day’ and falls under the Science Fiction genre.

Just Another Day:

Tess Penrose finds herself at a crossroad. She is a talented warrior who works for the security department at her company. She is also being interviewed for a promotion at work, which would enable her to provide for her family with little difficulty. However, her daughter openly despises her for the role that she has in the world and this potential promotion has only made things worse.

Will Tess be able to balance her work life with her family life? And what sacrifices will Tess have to make to affect the strained relationship she has with her daughter?


To read this short story, and many more, you can pre-order the book from here.

The book will also be available to order from Amazon and I will post a link to the order page as soon as it goes live.



Work in Progress

A quick update about my work.

I have started writing my, currently unnamed, novella starring Paradox. I will post updates on here to let you know about my progress.

The short story I was working on has been submitted and accepted. When the anthology is being published, I will post about it on here.

More news will be coming soon.



I’m currently fleshing out a plan for my next story. The plan is for a novella that will hopefully be roughly around 30000 words (although this may change to accommodate the needs of the story).

The story will be another that has Paradox as the main character, although it will be a one-off story of it’s own as opposed to a sequel. It is another story hoping to flesh out the world of Orbis.

The eventual aim is to self-publish the novella online as an e-book. This could potentially happen through Amazon, but I’m not going to rush into anything. First things first, though; write the story and give it the time it deserves.

Orbis – Map

I previously shared a map of one of the continents of Orbis; Honos. On that map, there were key features of the continent labelled. Today, I’m going to share a map of the whole world of Orbis. However, only the continent names will be labelled. I will share a close up of the other four continents over time.

Here is the complete map of Orbis:

Orbis Map

And here is a version of the map labelled:

Orbis Map Labelled

So far, ‘Nomadic Guardian’ takes place on Serenitas and ‘Paradox’ starts on Sapientia before moving to Honos (sort of). Raditus and Anima have not yet been used as settings for any announced stories, but characters from those continents are in ‘Nomadic Guardian’.

The next close up map I’ll post will be of Serenitas, along with some more information about ‘Nomadic Guardian’.

First draft – Done

So that’s the first draft of my new short story done. Time to start the editing process. Hoping to have this done over the next few days and to then get it sent off. After that, I will probably start working on my next planned project, a novella that will help flesh out the world of Orbis even more. More details will be posted about my upcoming projects as they become available.
