Well, Now I’m Playing Dungeons & Dragons

I’m just now realizing that I probably should have taken a picture of our little table on Saturday, strewn with papers, journals, pencils, various-sided dice, and a few beer cans.

After talking about it a few times over the course of the last year or so, I started playing Dungeons & Dragons with a group of friends, and we had a great first night! Continue reading “Well, Now I’m Playing Dungeons & Dragons”

October Write Day: Where Did September Go?

Wow, I had such high hopes for September, and it basically slipped through my fingers. We traveled each weekend but one, including our week-long beach vacation.

Rather than allowing me to refocus mentally and creatively, that time off flew by and dropped me right back into life like a rock. I didn’t take even one beach photo, and I always take pictures of the beach.

So September unwittingly became a break from writing. Continue reading “October Write Day: Where Did September Go?”

“The Grand Mythos” Chapter 9 Introduces a New Force of Nature to the World

It has been far too long since I posted a new chapter of my series of fantasy myths. I intended to schedule this chapter during my vacation two weeks ago, but, well… forgot.

I’m really excited to introduce a new character, however, and explore what it would be like for a terrifying and beautiful force of nature to come alive: the sea!

Genre: fantasy, high fantasy, mythic fantasy

Chapter Blurb: The First Life has finally reached Mahar’s Blue Sea, but the being who brings the dark waters to life is not keen to entertain inquisitive visitors.

Series Blurb:

Every world has its origin story.

The vibrant world of Úr’Dan and the powerful beings who created it are eager to find life in the cosmos. But their untested powers will clash as they each strive to bring their vision of the universe to fruition–and control the wondrous creatures who live there. Witness the creation of a vibrant new world.

Based on the unique fantasy universe of the novel, The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.

As always, this story is free to read on Wattpad:

THE ISLAND by S. Usher Evans – A Light Survival Adventure

I used my time at the beach last week fairly well, if I do say so. I managed to read about 85% of a book in about six days, which is a much faster clip than I usually make.

The Island by S. Usher Evans is the first in her Madion War Trilogy, which I picked up at Awesome Con in April. After talking with the author for a few minutes, I decided to buy all three books at a discount.

After finishing book one, that seems like a pretty good decision. The Island is a solid adventure story that was easy to digest on a lazy vacation. Continue reading “THE ISLAND by S. Usher Evans – A Light Survival Adventure”
