Next week is Youmacon, and for the first time in a decade of attending, I will be selling my work in the Artist Alley! Come visit me at H19. I’ll be selling signed copies of The Art of Falling, on site commissions, watercolors, digital prints, and buttons. I hope to see you all there if you’re in the Detroit area.
It’s the end of an era. After a very long wait, this is the final session of Neebs and Associates. Will we succeed in defeating Lucifer, or will we perish trying? Either way, it will be bittersweet to resolve this three-year long adventure.
- Ciaran (LVL28) and Basile (LVL30)
- Alkaid (LVL 30)
- Kass (LVL 30)
- Rhaegar (LVL 30)

Before the team goes to the castle of Lucifer, an undead Lorn approaches Basile to tell him that the plans he and Lorn made to defeat Alexander Willard need to change. Basile, who is used to Lorn’s weird magic, is confused and doesn’t remember making a plan. Undead Lorn tells Basile that he has a scroll in a hidden shoulder pocket and to throw it away. He then makes a new Lorn holding an urn and tells him that this simulacrum will follow Basile’s commands. Basile is to make sure the simulacrum is delivered to Alexander Willard. Undead Lorn then turns the simulacrum invisible, and makes it so Basile can permanently see invisible creatures. When Basile asks if the true Lorn knows the plan, Undead Lorn winks and vanishes.
Biff has also prepared a heroes feast and gave everyone witches reservoir to use as during the fight.
Lorn regurgitates a purple boulder, and hands it to Marven. “I made you a gift. I hope it will power you through the castle.” Marven is confused, and Sbeen is jealous and tries to throw up a rock. Lorn explains that it’s 2 years worth of goodberries (438,000 berries.) Marven cries and smashes the goodberry boulder.
The party then ventures out to the castle. As they approach the gates, and the signs of Lucifer on them flash to open them. The castle is made of bone of the god Infernus is built upon. They enter the foyer and find an ostentatious and elaborate room. Standing in the center is a handsome human who the party recognizes as Alexander Willard. Next to him is Caasimolar: an old man with a flaming combover, red eyes and horns, and a forked tail. Around them are ten pitfiends waiting to attack.
“Have you come to offer yourselves to the Lord of Darkness?” Alexander Willard asks.
“You already know the answer,” Lorn replies.
“Then I’m going to have fun.”
Hey everyone! With Michigan Comic Convention only a week away, I can happily say that I will be at booth F27 selling signed copies of The Art of Falling, on site commissions, prints, and buttons. If you are in the Detroit area this summer, please stop by the convention and say hello at my booth! I would love to get to meet you all in person.
I have been attending Youmacon for the last decade, and this year I decided to give the Artist Alley a shot. I had always wanted to participate and sell my work, but never had the chance to do so. After a long wait, I can confirm that I will be a part of Youmacon’s Artist Alley for 2019!
This is a huge moment for my author career, and as a fan of the local convention. Getting into the Artist Alley is difficult – hundreds of artists and vendors apply, and this year there was a juror process PLUS a lottery for those who passed the jury. I am humbled to have gotten through to share my work at the convention that started my love for cons.
So save the date! I will be selling more signed copies of The Art of Falling. Youmacon is held at the Renaissance Center and Cobo Hall from October 31st – November 3rd. Keep an eye out for further updates!
One of the biggest challenges as a new author is growing your readership, and finding ways to spread the word about your novel. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been paying for ads on Facebook for my novel’s page to great success. However, I wanted to try out another way of promoting my novel in addition to helping other authors.
So, I’m doing a book swap with Scarlett West for her novel, “Forbidden Darkness.” Those who love fantasy and romance are sure to love West’s first installment in the Immortal Desire series. It’s available on Amazon Kindle for only $.99! Be sure to purchase your copy today for an evening of reading.
The vampire race is dying, and to save it, one vampire will risk his life.
Vampire Reinis has been assigned to mate with a human to create a prophesied child that will save his coven. The rules are simple: get the job done and come home. Falling in love is out of the question.
Yet that’s exactly what Reinis has unwittingly done. Now he risks execution at the hands of his own coven for breaking vampire law.
Fresh out of a bad relationship, Sarma has no clue about the dark, seductive world Reinis is from. But when he marks her as his mate, she’s thrown headfirst into a secret world of vampires…painting a target on her back with a rival coven that will do anything to prevent the prophecy from coming to pass.
Fans of Bella Forrest’s A Shade of Vampire and Dannika Dark’s Keystone will fall in love with this hot paranormal vampire romance. Sink your fangs into the sizzling and thrilling world of the Immortal Desire Series.
Hey everyone! I’m not dead!
My goal to post every Friday was thrown out the window shortly after I got married last year (oh my god, I can’t believe it’s almost been a year already). Life has been crazy busy with moving into my home, raising Oxford, getting a job promotion, playing more D&D campaigns – including running my own – and trying to find time to work on the sequel. Honestly, it’s been an exhausting and exciting year, but not very share-worthy. The last thing I want to do is be unauthentic, and my authentic self has been very lazy and not wanting to write blog posts.
But I’m back with some big announcements!
To begin, my Facebook page for The Art of Falling has reached over 100 followers! I am so appreciative of so many people supporting my and my book. I can only hope each one has taken the opportunity to read the paperback or kindle version so they can look forward to the sequel.
As for the sequel, it has been a slow process, but I am working toward it. With my new job, my schedule is constantly rotating from mid-shift to night-shift, so finding a consistent writing schedule is impossible. My current goal is to work on one chapter a week, pending I’m not busy with other events (and let’s face it, my weekends have been booked every week since March.)
However, there will be one weekend that I am definitely dedicating to my writing. I will be selling signed copies of my debut novel at Michigan Comic Convention at Cobo Center August 16th – 18th! It will be the first time selling books to readers in person, and I can’t wait to talk with them about Regal and Keir’s story. Not only that, I will be doing on-site commissions and selling prints. More information will come soon, so keep an eye out for further updates.
The story of Neebs and Associates is coming to a close. Let’s see what terrors they are currently facing.
- Ciaran (LVL24) and Basile (LVL26)
- Alkaid (LVL 25)
- Kass (LVL 23)
- Rhaegar (LVL 25)
- Neebs (LVL25)
The party floats in the void outside of Infernus, as those who were also once part of Neebs and Associates are dragged through the portal by ghostly chains: H’rathen, Dwayne, Stormageddon, Nergal, Skull King, Sbeen, and the alien-like corpse of a changeling who was once Toth.
Marven starts eating the corpse of Pendralar that Dwayne cooks. Sbeen is crying because the last time he saw them he had killed Basile. He sees Basile and starts air-swimming to him, but Basile nopes away from him. H’rathen floats over to the white guy and Ciaran tells him to speak with dead. H’rathen slaps him in the face but the spell doesn’t work. He can’t seem to communicate with anything outside of this plane of existence. He attempts to Plane Shift them away, but it fails. The group asks if the Heart of Mechanus can be used to help, and Pythos explains that if he stops casting magic, Lucifer will find them and kill them.
Deciding they need to find a place to stay, they all head to Ebonfire Keep, smacking into the ground as gravity starts working again. The bodies of the servants are strewn about the castle. The party divide themselves up into rooms where they can rest. Sbeen takes a chain and an axe to create grappling hook. He throws the axe into Pendralar’s side and pulls him in.
Kass studies the world a bit and discerns that those who enter Infernus are able to leave, but Lucifer is trapped. Additionally, there’s no reason for the prison to be locked if Infernus is dead. Neebs says we should go after Lucifer, and Rhaegar says that as long as we make it impossible for the portal to be opened, there’s no need to kill Lucifer. Basile says that Rhaegar should live in a box for the rest of his life since he has the key, and Rhaegar says that suffering of one can protect the planes of existence. Pythos also adds that he isn’t sure how long he can keep their shield on them.
