It's been a long road without as much progress as I would have liked but alas, the end of this campaign is closing in.  There are only two more days to hit my goal and only 21 copies ordered.  The fault is mine; I haven't posted anything new lately hoping for more followers before I did, and have been preoccupied with finishing my bachelor's degree and... well you get the idea.  Excuses and all that.  After the Ruin is still in the works and will definitely return to Inkshares for another go.  Thank you all for your support and I hope to see you all succeed in your endeavors in the new year!

Merry Christmas!


Evening Ladies and Gents!

Just wanted to thank you all for your support of my debut novel After the Ruin!  I have 54 more days to reach my goal so I'm reaching out to the 24 most important people I know - you the reader - to help me get the word out.  Share the link to your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, or send homing pigeons with notes tied to their ankles to your friends and family.  Every pre-order matters.

As far as the novel goes, I'm plugging away steadily, delving deeper and deeper into the world of Lykoreia.  There's loss and love, intrigue and surprise in every turn. If you want to know more, get me 26 more readers and I'll post Chapter 2!

Have a great evening and I'll talk to you soon!

Night Night,


Evening Everyone!  It's time for my first update!

Thank you to each of you for supporting my debut novel.  I know there are a lot of amazing stories on Inkshares so I feel fortunate to have found people who are interested in journeying to the lands of Lykoreia with me.  The manuscript is coming along nicely and I can't wait to share Chapter 2 with you!  Help me get to 50 followers by sharing it on social media and recommending it to your friends and fellow followers.

Thank you again and I can't wait to share Chapter 2 - Metavasi, with you!

Until next time,


Thank you all for your support! I uploaded the prologue for After the Ruin.  It is a very short read so please take a gander and let me know your thoughts, reactions etc.  I'd love to hear your feedback!

Thank you and have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
