Early cover art for Stories from Arisa

Here’s the pencil sketch for my short story collection, Stories from Arisa:

Pencil for Stories

Once the coloring is done and my editor sends me the final markups, I’m hoping to have the collection out sometime next week.

Right now, there are four stories. First  is Received Wisdom, a story featuring Li-Dirge, describing how he becomes the SarpanKum of the Eastern Plague.

Next is The Prank, a story from Rukh’s time at the House of Fire and Mirrors, one of the two Kumma martial academies in Ashoka. Keemo features prominently in this one, and I was glad to write him again. Though his screen time in A Warrior’s Path was short, he was always one of my favorite characters.

Then comes A Lesson Learned. It’s a tale about murder in Ashoka.
Finally there’s The Missing Diamond, a story about an arrogant Cherid who loses a priceless diamond. Lieutenant Rector Bryce has to catch the thief.

I’m also including the prologue and Chapter 1 of A Warrior’s Knowledge. For those who don’t remember every detail of Arisa – which includes me on most days – I’m  also including a glossary at the end.

 

 

An interview with the Superman/Wonder Woman Tumblr

My first interview! Kinda cool that someone is interested in what I’ve written. Who am I kidding? It’s awesome! Read the interview and you’ll see how I went from writing original stories, to writing fan fiction, and back to writing original works.

Word of warning: if you read the fanfic novels I wrote, understand that they’re all second draft with loads of typos. Be forgiving.

Stories from Arisa

I just finished Stories From Arisa, a short story collection set in the same universe as A Warrior’s Path! It’s not volume two, but it is pretty awesome. I would say that wouldn’t I?

Anyway, first up is Received Wisdom, a story featuring Li-Dirge as he becomes the SarpanKum of the Eastern Plague.

Next is The Prank, a story from Rukh’s time at the House of Fire and Mirrors, one of the two Kumma martial academies in Ashoka. Keemo features prominently in this one, and I was glad to write him again. Though his screen time was short, he was always one of my favorite characters, and I’ve always felt bad about how Keemo died.

Then comes A Lesson Learned. It’s a tale about murder in Ashoka.

Finally there’s The Missing Diamond, a story about an arrogant Cherid who loses a priceless diamond. Lieutenant Rector Bryce has to catch the thief.

Oh yes. I almost forgot. I’m also including the Prologue and Chapter 1 of A Warrior’s Knowledge. For those who don’t remember every detail of Arisa, I’m also including the glossary in the back.

Right now, the stories are off to editing, and I also need some cover art. Hopefully, it’ll be ready to be published in a few weeks.
