House of Shadows Chapter 1 :iconescape908:escape908 1 0
Haldur laid the massive sword across his lap.  The thick, dull gray blade was twelve inches wide and six feet long not counting the crossguard, pommel, and two-handed hilt.  Though the blade was old, it was well maintained.  By rote, Haldur worked through his routine applying oil which he polished into the blade’s surface with a rag.  Its surface would not gleam and shine in battle, but it would hew through his foes.  It was an instrument of death, a tool of war; it was not meant to be pretty, but lethal and reliable.
Haldur heard the baritone voice that belonged to Barnaby waft up the hill gracelessly.  Their encampment was placed under a broad tree whose foliage gave shade from the hot sun. The location also gave them a clear view of any approaching dangers…or clients.  Barnaby was leading the latter their way.
Haldur breathed the clean air into his nose, smelling the comforting aroma of smoke, fire, and cooking meat.  Ambryn hunke

The Corruption thumbnail

"Something is awakening...

An ancient evil. An opportunistic swordswoman. An unspeakable treasure. A dedicated priestess.

When the Tomb of Izrabol the Vile is unearthed, every would-be treasure seeker in Tahlverden descends on the small village of Athaton in search of it. But more than treasure is buried in the tomb. There is a reason it has remained sealed for millenia...the Corruption!

Six strangers are all that stand between the world of Tahlverden and one of the greatest evils to ever exist!

A sword & sorcery tale of greed, gluttony, and lust from the author of The Relentless Ones!"

My brand new novella is available now, and it's only $0.99 on Kindle or Nook! If you do want the print version (which is a nice pocket book with a snazzy back cover), you get the Kindle version for free!

A stand-alone story set in the same world as my Relentless Ones novels; it's a nice introduction to my writing if you're not ready to take the plunge on the Relentless Ones yet.

I'm a mechanical engineer working on Long Island in NY. I like to read, watch movies, go shopping, go out to eat, and play games of various kinds (roleplaying, video, card, board). I love dogs, and I have one of my own. I'm a passionate person, but I tend to be a bit impulsive. I also have a degree in English, and I'm working on my third novel.

Hello, I am just going through my old account and sending a message to all my old followers letting them know my account has changed. 
My B3oe account failed and I could not recover any of it, so I have moved here.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you, dear.  Yes, life is rather busy and not without its challenges, but overall I am doing well.  I hope you are happy and in good health.

Dropping by to say hello! I haven't been around in ages, but it looks like you're doing well for yourself! Congrats!
escape908 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Professional Writer
Aww. :aww:  Well thank you, sweetheart.  Very kind of you.  :D  Yeah, I haven't seen you in forever.  You're barely on tumblr either! :omfg:  What have you been up to?  Are things going well with you?  Yes, things have been very busy in my life lately.  Still a lot going on with my writing, but it got a little sidetracked lately since I have a new g/f.  :aww: :heart: :heart: :heart:  I hope everything is great with you!  You were missed! :D :tighthug:

Things are going well with me, just insanely busy and since my sister moved I haven't been doing much art stuff worth posting up here. Mostly I've been "honing my craft" (basically just sewing sundry projects I never got around to before, little things like mending or alterations to other things. Maybe I should make a folder for those things so it's not so dead here... Wonder if there's a market for that? lol) How's everything on your end now? I feel like this is a repeating cycle of me takings ages to respond and then inquiring lol

Oh, your sister moved out?  That's exciting for her.  Must be hard for you though. :(  Busy is good.  I hope it's all good things.  Honing your craft sounds good.  Been doing some of that with my writing.  Things are not so great for me right now actually.  They are about as low as they can get.  That g/f I was telling you about wants to break up with me now. :crying:  It's not official until this Sunday so there's still a chance we can work things out, but it doesn't look good.  I'm really having a hard time with it because I feel like she's the love of my life and ending things would be a huge mistake.  I've got a new promotion at work recently too, and I didn't even want it, but I took it for her so we could have a future together.  And now it's super stressful and making me miserable.  Just a really bad time in my life right now, and I'm hoping I can turn it around.  Yeah, it's kind of hard to have a conversation with 6 months between replies, but I understand you're busy.
