The Chalice of Pearls
The first dwarves, ancient and restless, give fealty to their god, Rhuthlak. Five of them struggle in their own unique way, contributing their skills to the success of the Edgedrop mine and the continuance of youth sustained by the Chalice of Pearls. A stubborn mine master comes to a realization that some mysterious scroll keepers may be worth listening to. A stone harvester discovers a new secret about the enchanted stones he has been collecting for years. A single mother races to a neighboring colony to save the Edgedrop mine from certain disaster. A team of rescue dwarves fight for the lives of their companions after a collapse, and begin to question their god. The current mine master’s protégé wrestles against his meek character and finds out he may have what it takes to lead after all.
During a time before dwarves were bred for war, and mining was all they knew, their lust for youthfulness and fear of dragons turned into what defines them today.
With a background of mining experience, I thought it would be fun to delve into the personal lives of one of the most well loved fantasy races, dwarves, and incorporate some real world experience into the land of Getallumane. This work is an accompanying piece to The Bridges of Crea, a novel series in its beginning phase.
The Ternary Code
The Ternary Code would technically be classified as post-apocalyptic sci-fi; it takes place after earth is devoid of all known humans, yet not intelligent life.
I've had so many plans for this book, from releasing it as a novel, to turning it into blog posts, to releasing it incrementally in a serialized format. My rough draft is finished. Polishing this book is taking quite some time, however. I'm very excited to be able to share it when it's ready for you.
When I think about the different projects in the pipe, this one takes the cake. The first draft for this novel is finished, and like The Ternary Code, it needs polished. It is in the low fantasy genre, and set in the modern world. Between each of the characters I've written or am working on, I have fallen in love with the main character of The Primitive more than any other. Suffice it to say, I can not wait to begin sharing this story!
The Bridges of Crea
The Bridges of Crea series is in the fantasy genre, includes a new fantasy world, and does not have magic, at least not what you're used to.
The dwarves from The Chalice of Pearls are only a small element of the story, as it includes an array of races and creatures.
