This blog is so fresh…meh, I’ll leave those kind of jokes for Gordon Ramsey, ’cause I’ve got nothin’.
The fact remains, though, that this is a shiny new blog. I haven’t been around long enough to get asked a whole lot of questions. So I’ve taken the liberty of using my mad braining skills to imagine which kind of questions are likely to arise…and answer them proactively. So far…I have three. Does anyone have any real questions for me? Drop me a line via the contact page, or leave a comment below.
What is this place?
This blog is the internet home for Antiquity’s Gate, a sci-fi/fantasy series of novels that I’m working on. Currently, the first of these is nearing the final stages of the editing process, and the second is already underway.
What is Antiquity’s Gate about?
At the edge of the world, the last stronghold of mankind holds silent vigil, a forgotten sentinel in the shadow of the Transantarctic mountains. It has stood for one hundred twenty-five years while an increasingly dystopian hierarchy has formed bitter divides among its citizens.
The Theran people who came through Antiquity’s Gate are hiding something. The tense relations between the last of humanity and these mysterious outsiders threaten the fragile bonds that have been holding their community together. When the very rules enacted to safeguard survival bring heartache to the lives of two unlikely friends, it is up to them to find a way to escape from Sanctuary…but their actions may have devastating consequences.
What can I expect from this blog?
Because I don’t want to give away too much, too quickly, for the first little bit you can expect a bit of rambling. These musings are my thoughts on writing, coffee, and a sprinkling of, well, everything else. But it is also where, very soon, you can come to find news about the first Antiquity’s Gate novel, entitled Sanctuary, as well as updates on the progress of the second installment. If you’re clever (or if you just read all my blog posts, really) you’ll find that I enjoy sharing bits of lore, excerpts, and the like. I promise not to share any spoilers, so if you aren’t among the team of people who’ve already had the opportunity to read through Sanctuary, don’t worry. You have nothing to fear from me!
