Mystery of the Vanishing Story

Author: 

So, those of you who follow my work, for which I am eternally grateful for, might notice a rather significant change has taken place with my postings in that my Prom Changes Everything series has had the entirety of the body of work removed. That's because...well...I have no clue how to actually delete the post itself until the BCTS gods and goddesses hear my pleas and are able to remove it for me. But I guess you want to know why it's been removed in the first place. Well, that's because I finally took the quite scary plunge of actually publishing this book on Amazon today.

Fugue State: An Awakened Novel

1326277015.jpgHer name was Kitty...at least, that was what she had been told after waking up with no idea where or who she was. Kitty, the girl who was supposed to be mourning the recent loss of a mother she had no memory of. Kitty, the loving, devoted daughter of a kind and understanding father who was a complete stranger to her. Kitty, the girl who was determined to move forward with her life despite not remembering where she'd started.

Resurgence: An Awakened Novel

Resurgence.jpgFate could be unmercifully cruel. At least, that's what Ashley Flynn thought when his parents were taken from him in a deadly car crash at the age of fourteen. He never anticipated that what came after would easily be one of the most terrifying times of his young life. And yet somehow, he was able to survive. After enduring constant pain, humiliation, and fear for years, Ashley finally found the strength to do what needed to be done to escape from the living nightmare that had become his daily existence...

...Only to realize that fate wasn't even close to being done with him yet.

High Heels in a Minefield

Life had been pretty simple for Ray. Eat, sleep, draw, and geek out over anime and manga with his small circle of friends. So when one of those friends suggested engaging in some cosplay for an upcoming Comicon as some of their favorite anime characters, it sounded like the perfect summer activity. That was until he found out just which character he was supposed to be.

What started as a fun idea quickly turned into a mixture of inner conflict and self-discovery that Ray had never known even existsed and served as the root for one of the most dramatic and uncertain changes in his young life. The question was, would this roller coaster be a fun-filled thrill-ride, or a complete derailment of everything in his life.

May 25th Update

So, just a quick update on what has been happening as of late. I've been working on my second book and it's nearly complete. All that's left is a bit of editting to do, choose a really cool cover, and publish. I've already started working on refreshing my Whateley series so it's non-whateley, which basically means rewritting most the entire first book, which is what I'm currently working on. I don't get nearly as much time to write as I'd like so hopefully it won't take long to do.

I'm Not Dead

Okay, so in case you're confused, the title of this blog post is a Monty Python joke, not a response to some rumor that I've shed my mortal coil or anything. Many who frequent this site and are kind enough to give my work a look and even a comment or two time and again might be wondering why the story well has dried up so suddenly. Well, things have become a bit complicated as of late. As you may know, I finally published Prom Changed Everything on Amazon and I must say it's doing so much better than I had ever hoped.

Triumvirate Book 6

Author's note: Like my last submission, I'm trying something new and utilizing PDF as well as RTF to allow for more options so people can get the full reading experience. Please feel free to let me know which you prefer, if either.

Call of the Hunt Book 4

Author Note: I would once again strongly suggest using the MS Word attachment to read since it contains variances in font that add more depth to the story that you simply won't get reading it right off the site.

“Dad, you are seriously overreacting to this,” my father said with an expression that clearly said he was upset.

Call of the Hunt Book 3

Author's Note: I'm trying something new. I've never been happy with my limited choices of font via Google Docs for this particular story, so I'm going to attach the MS Word file here instead. As I've said in the past this story can be read here, but with the dynamic font changes being a rather part of the story I'd recommend reading the Word file to get the full impact. I check my page often so please let me know if there's any problems with reading the Word file.

Call of the Hunt Book 2

Once again, I'm going to strongly suggest using the Google Docs link to read this story. It can be read here fine, but because of the differentiating fonts used, I think it will be more impactful to use the link. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fWSwJTqogYFujFC0JKjWoSNW...

Book 2

Call of the Hunt Book 1

Note: For this piece I played around with the fonts a little bit. While it can be read here fine, I would suggest using the google docs link to get the full effect. https://docs.google.com/document/d/18qoirwEG2c5LotB9TbsUh_Ep...

Edit 9/7/16: I never liked my font choices in Google Docs when it came to certain sections so I've decided to go ahead and make available the MS Word document that has my much preferred editing choices. It is in the attachments section.

Mind Games Book 2

Author's Note: I think I was able to get the spacing issue fixed, but just in case I'm still including a Google Docs link so it can be read with all of the original format: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11nl6AMsXTItiZyR0wwK47SAz...

Mind Games Book 1

Author's Note: I am a complete idiot when it comes to transferring my work here from a Word or Google Docs file and not having it look like junk. So, in addition to the story itself being posted here, I am also including a Google Docs link where this story can be viewed in its original font and format. I apologize for any inconvenience but, as I said, I just can't work out how to get this posted into the forum without removing all of my font and formatting. I hope you enjoy it.

Heal Thy Self Book 2

(Author's Note: Again, I apologize, but for some reason this isn't translating well from MS Word. I do strongly encourage you use this Google Docs link as the formatting and line break spacing is the original and much more readable. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1j-tr3afVyPtMX58Nc510EQqS... )
