This is the book, not the other one.
I must ask, that you please, redo any preorders that you had done previously. I know that it is a hassle, but I need to jump out in this competition with Geek & Sundry.
That’s all, I can’t ask for anymore than that than to please spread the word as best that you can. This means a lot. More than you know.
I ended the Campaign on the book, this is not because I gave up on the book, but rather because of the new competition from Geek and Sundry, so starting tomorrow, I’m going to message everyone that I can to have any of you re-order.
I know it stinks to go through this again, but I have a better chance with success with this moving forward.

Lore Update: Excerpt from, The History of Valthera by Artemis Asinere
Excerpt from The History of Valthera, by Artemis Asinere, on the topic of Shire and the Aeons
... The one now known simply as Shire, came and took what he so desired, he held nothing back from himself. He took many wives and many concubines until their number amounted to 1090, so was the way of the Shire.
Shire’s seed was potent, after one year’s time his sons and daughters amounted to more than his wives, his seed bore him twins, triplets so on and so forth.
According to their kinds they were gathered, being named after and by the Great Lord Cle’vier Shire.
Among these were the twins of Berkshire who was son of Cle’vier: Leoshire and Feroshire and their relatives.
Feroshire grew in anger and ambition, no longer desiring to dwell under his grandfather’s name ’shire’ he continued until his death known as Fer’os.
From the Shires came the Aeons, orders bringers, rulers of the land when no lord could be found among the people. The Aeons would hold no lands or titles, yet they grew and honed their powers.
While the Shire grew old and whithered, dying at the age of 3,987--Having well over that number of children, his line grew and prospered.
His son, Berkshire grew powerful, being the only single birth under Shire, his power was not split between a sibling. Berkshire slayed his elder half-brother Hishire, the firstborn, his ambition being all that could end him.

Berkshire continued in this way, dominating those who stood against him, even the Aeons and they too failed in number.
Berkshire ruled without resistance for many years, fear always being the factor. It was in this time, the time of constructed false peace--that the power of the Aeon’s and of the Shire’s came into question, becoming mere myth.
The people grew in anger and frustration and with it was stirred rebellion--
I most likely will not be uploading any further chapters. And might actually take it back down to just a few.
So moving forth updates will be either developments, shout outs to respective writers that need support and Lore Reveals.
Today is a holiday here in the States, so drive safe take care of yourself, and definitely don’t "hold my beer and watch this". While funny, I can’t help but suspect that you might die and we don’t want that.
Have a wonderful evening.
I will post lore updates as the week goes on. If there’s anything in particular you would like discussed, ask away!
Excelsior! A new chapter pertaining to the Time Traveler will be uploaded in honor of the 40 follower mark.
Note: This chapter takes place much further in the book somewhere around twenty ’sections’ later.
Reminder for the Quill Goal:
First 50 paper backs will not only be signed first editions of all first editions, but also contain pieces of the History of Valthera. No one else will have the same piece as you.
As always thanks for reading, Pre-order if you haven’t, recommend, *cough* give me your soul *cough*, tell others about it in all truth and honesty I don’t have local resources to help me push the book forward in my own home so if you will allow me to lean on you, I promise I don’t smell.
40 Follower Update:
So I finally got my scanner working again. The Map will be posted in this update.
I might be getting interviewed soon (What? No you won’t see my face, sorry, I know you really want to, but not yet.) Along with being a potential Syndicate pick (that would be amazing.) There are several things in the pipeline as of now. It’s amazing to see honestly thank you all for everything no matter how small the gesture.
Quill Goal/50 Paperback Special Update:
Yes I still plan on writing out pieces of the History of Valthera in the first 50 paperbacks sold, this is essentially giving you: 1. Signed Copy. 2. 1st Edition. 3. Collectors Item that will never be seen again.
Think about it and pre-order. I’ll still love you either way. But more so if you pre-order.
While the map may not look that great, I just want you to understand--I drew this by hand, I am not an artist of any kind. I stink. But it gets the job done.
Monday Update: Quill Goal. While there have not been many preorders, I mean who could blame you, I don’t even have a face for as much as you know. But I do, trust me. It’s in between the L & V respectively.
If I reach goal:
Any of the Paperbacks located within the Quill goal will not just get my signature, but also hand written segments of the History of Valthera.
How will this work? I hear you ask.
Dependent upon how many Paperbacks are ordered, the words of History of Valthera will be divided up between all. Meaning you not only get a First Edition, but you will now have something no one will ever again receive. Ever.
In other words, the only time this work will be published. Is in the handwritten segments that I write into the paperbacks.
As always any questions feel free to contact me. Recommend! Preorder! Buy several. You might even get something even more special.
