Hello there once again, my friends! I do realize that things are a little quiet on my end. I’m very happy and excited to finally be in Philadelphia. Yeah, I’ve been here for almost three weeks. It’s been a great time, and I’m slowly adjusting to being back on the Midwest/East Coast region of the world. Plus, now that I’m here, I don’t always want to be at a computer. I have always loved this city, and it’s really coming out as I want to explore. Never felt that way about where I lived before so I’m enjoying every single moment.
This doesn’t mean I’ve been idle. The Sons of Thor is coming along quite nicely now, and inspiration has struck for another story, which I’m using my cell phone to write. You see, over the last couple of days, I’ve had people ask me what I’m writing. I’m still not used to answering this question. Talking about my work is difficult because I’m never sure how to describe what I’m working on, but I do have a bit of a twisted sense of humor. When asked, I’ve said how the homeless start the zombie apocalypse here in Philadelphia. It started out as a bit of a smart aleck reply. I know zombies are overdone at this point, but this is a story that did plant itself in my head.
So what does this mean? Well, for starters, this new story, being written on my cell phone, is going to be a freebie. Chapters will be posted here, at deviantArt, fictionpress, and possibly at archiveofourown. Chapters will be uploaded in-between Arch of Fantasy and other story publications until the story reaches completion. Once it’s completed, it will be available for download on Kindle and NOOK. I’ve wanted to do a freebie story, and, since zombies have been done heavily over the last few years, a zombie story seems the best way to go.
I hope all of you out there are having a wonderful start to 2015. My year has had a rough start so far, but it’s all uphill now. Thanks for sticking with me.
Don’t forget that Portal to Gaming and The King and Queen of Wands are available for purchase for Kindle and NOOK.

The King and Queen of Wands
The King and Queen of Wands is a fantasy short story, blending the Greek and Norse pantheons.
Rumors are circulating around Asgard – Loki and his son, the dire wolf Fenris, have broken free of their bonds. The time for Ragnarök, their doom, is at hand, thus putting the Gods of Asgard on edge.
Loki and Fenris never show.
For weeks, the Gods wait and prepare, wait and prepare, only for the impossible to happen.
After three long, harsh winters, spring, colorful spring blooms. The change of events disturb Odin, Allfather and King of Asgard, and he decides to investigate the truth behind the rumors. With his son Thor, he heads to the cavern where Loki and his son were bound away.
Zeus has it made. He is the King of Olympus and all the Gods. Even his elder brothers bow to his might. He has a beautiful wife in Hera, the worship of the mortals, and kingdom filled with plenty of food. The lives are the mortals are his to play with as he deems fit. Life is grand for there are no others like him.
Or so he assumes.
Everything changes the moment Hermes approaches him and says words he never expects to hear. There are trespassers in Olympus. Worse, they are stealing from the sacred groves, and they are not mortals. Curious and a bit angered, he sets out with Artemis and Athena to capture the thieves and to bring them to justice.
Loki is hungry. For centuries, he and his family have had little to nothing to eat. For centuries, he’s sworn vengeance upon the Gods of Asgard for their slights and insults and for the deaths of his sons, Narvi and Vali. However, things have changed. His wife, Sigyn, needs food more than she does vengeance for the loss of their children, and Loki intends to care for her. Fortunately for him, he’s stumbled into a land where food is plentiful and the weather warm. No one will mind if he takes a few things here and there.
Worlds are about to collide with interesting and devastating consequences.
This is the current listings for both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Stay tuned for the release dates for Arch of Fantasy, Book 2: The Sons of Thor and Snow in Olympus, one of the “missing” scenes from The King and Queen of Wands
