After the death of King Gideon in 127 (CE), the … Continue reading Udea, Capital of Nocturna
Have you ever read a fanfiction so funny that you laugh every single time you think of it even months later?

Yaaaay!!! *chuckles nervously* If you haven't been … Continue reading NOCTURNA Book Trailer!

Most of these are actually questions and answers I created during the process of creating my story, so I'll be posting many of those. If anyone else has questions, feel free to ask! I would love to answer them. Alexei’s great-grandfather created Nocturna, though at the time it was not hidden from the mortal world. … Continue reading Q&A: Who Created the Monster World?
So, I thought I would post a little summary of my book and maybe tell a little about myself, since I haven't posted as often as I thought I would. (It's very hard to post things about a book when you haven't published your book yet. ) This is my (unofficial) summary for my … Continue reading About My Book & Me
