Day 2

Well, figured out why I couldn’t get the blog working.  Apparently it was user error.  My bad.  Least I got it going, so that’s good.

Tomorrow I should be getting the first draft of the book cover back.  I’m hoping it looks good so I can begin moving forward.  Then I just need to find a copy editor to look over and maybe review the work and then it should be good to go.

Figured I would spend a paragraph or two just explaining what is going to make this series stand out against the rest.  The fantasy genre is pretty competitive, after all.

One thing I thing makes mine stand out will be the aspect of time travel and how its treated.  I know we’ve all at one time or another looked back at something, wondering what it would be like if we went back and changed it.  In this story, the characters have the opportunity.  But they will also find out that changing something, even if seemingly small and insignificant, can have consequences and the responsibility to deal with those consequences is one of the many themes of the series.

Although I won’t get too deep into how the time travel occurs in a medieval-type setting (have to wait until A Mage’s Odyssey for that), its not something like Back to the Future where they need to go a certain speed.  As the characters will learn there are many different forms of time travel, all having a different process and set of rules.  The one constant for all of them: They can only travel to that moment once.

Gonna call it a night.  Almost midnight and need sleep.  Until the next time I write.

My First Blog Post ever! How exciting!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my blog pertaining to my writing works, primarily on the Brinks in Time series.  I am truly excited to finally get this series off the ground with The Legend of Valendri’s Relic, which will be released soon via Amazon.

I started writing this series over ten years ago, where it started off as a simple school project for a radio drama.  Now it has become a cornerstone in my thoughts and I have worked hard through the years to tell a clear, exciting, and emotional story that teens and adults alike can enjoy.

My love for the fantasy genre is why I started writing it.  I always grew up around the sci-fi/fantasy between Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.  I also played more of the Final Fantasy video games than I care to admit. Add in a love for reading and my imagination was in full throttle.

Although Valendri’s Relic was not originally intended to be the first released book, I decided that it painted a good introductory picture of the world of Gyyerlith just before we meet the real heroes and villains.  It also brought out some of the important themes that will carry on throughout each story.

For now I will stop here.  I will post more in the coming days.  Thanks for reading!
