But it does come with a limitation. Namely, it won't support a book that's too large without becoming a terribly unwieldy block. … Continue reading Designing a Monstrous Book

This meant merging an extra 20k into The Rogue King. That meant going through the whole process all over again. In the … Continue reading The Rogue King – New and Improved and Coming Soon
I've spoken before that The Rogue King Saga is an old creature. It started way back in '97. Eighteen years later, there's little left of the original story.The overarching story is still there. Veng has always been a man facing down a god who seeks to destroy him. But the story within? It grew darker. … Continue reading Chopping Up My Darling… Again
