Penance

Night after night, night after night,

Unloved, by man and divine;

As still as a bloodied moon

Upon a painted skyline.

Death, death, every where,

O’ how their hope did sway;

Death, death, every where,

None will live to see the day.

Secrets and Doors Anthology – Coming Soon

I have been blessed to spend the past month or so working with some very talented writers out of Utah that are part of The Secret Door Society. Together, with Crimson Edge, we are going to be releasing an anthology of stories to help out with T1D. All proceeds, from the authors and publishing company, will be donated for this cause. My youngest brother has Type II Diabetes, and although he does not face the full impact of those that have Type I, I have watched him struggle with the implications of diabetes since he was seven-years-old. I have to say that I am very thrilled to be a part of this project!

Look forward to a cover reveal of the anthology in the next week!

Below is a nice blurb with more information.

“The Secrets and Doors Society is committed to opening new doors by supporting the research of a common, but terrible, disease. Type One Diabetes (T1D) is a disease that can affect children and adults. Over time, T1D can damage nerves, organs, and extremities. The only current treatment is a lifetime of blood sugar monitoring, and insulin injections.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is studying the prevention of the autoimmune attack that can evolve into T1D. They are working toward eradicating the need for insulin by keeping insulin producing beta cells alive. JDRF’s ultimate goal is to stop T1D before it starts, by creating a universal vaccine. All proceeds for Secrets and Doors will go to JDRF in support of their mission to treat and eradicate T1D.”

I have built a website on Blogger to focus on information related to the Thrice Nine Legends series. I am still working on the construction, trying to make it an easy-access place for diehard fans. Anyone have tips? Please check it out and give me some feedback on how best to build this thing!

Thanks, Christine, for the very fun interview questions.

Melkorka: Thrice Nine Legends by Joshua Robertson, was released on Amazon today! As a final beta reader, I got a sneak peek at the newest in dark fantasy.

Melkorka FinalFrontCover

Branimir Baran is a Kras, a servant creature of a magical order of humans, who unwillingly unleashes the greatest evil his world has ever known. Bran is forced on an adventure to stop this evil, an undead sorceress, from destroying all life. Not such a small task. Branimir has to really grow and stretch beyond his expected place in society and beyond his own definition of himself as he faces a series of adventures across his world.

Robertson revives epic fantasy with great world-building. I enjoyed his creatures and the way he illustrated their cultures by having the characters interact. There was even one moment that was such a surprise I swore out loud.

Bran was a little bit of a tame…
