Hesitation

A side project for after A Balance of Souls (likely at the same time as Kiadei) that will require a lot more planning than writing, and levels of beta reading that I’ve yet to fully fathom. My hope is to make a novel like a video game.

Intended Word Count: 140,000

Photography & Art

Though my art has to live in the time between writing and work, I still enjoy creating new pieces from time to time.

Here, I’ve collected all art and photography not seen elsewhere on the site.

ABoS the Manga

I have a secret dream to turn A Balance of Souls into an digitally animated manga.

Of course, I will need to finalize the series outline and get some more practice with the necessary tools first.

ABoS Encyclopedia

In order to have consistency between all the novels in the main A Balance of Souls series, as well as the planned Kiadei series, I’ve been expanding and recording enough aspects of the world, language, history, and characters to concoct a sizable encyclopedia.

Poetry

I used to write poetry. Only about once a year, and I haven’t for many years, but I’m still quite proud of some of them. One day, I’ll find a new one to write.
