Blue Ash Crisis: Chapter 10 (Alpha Release)
Woman Claims To Have Caused The Blue Ash Crisis
This entry is rousing.  We received a letter from a Chino Tokuma who claims to have worked on a secret project that caused the Blue Ash Crisis.
It took little time for Apricot to track down this Chino Tokuma.  The magazine article had little substance and a lot of speculation claiming the letter was too sensitive to publish.  The neighborhood was pleasant to say the least.  A quiet urban sprawl, a few children playing in the alleyways.  She passed by several houses spruced up with plants.  She had always found the inner city to be less than pleasing.  All that concrete and how it was devoid of nature.  This area, however, it was beautiful.  The brick apartment buildings are surrounded by so much vegetation it appears as if they naturally grew out of the ground themselves.
The sound of a stream echoed as the other side of the road was home to a creek.  1514 Dujho street, after seeing the nu

Blue Ash Crisis: Chapter 9 (Alpha Release)
Traveling the streets Apricot followed the signs and symbols all over the city.  It was late evening, and the sun had set.  A treck into several bars and other shady looking places resulted only in funny looks as Apricot tried to hint at purchasing a gun.  She had been kicked out of several and she was sure by now the police had been contacted at least once about her inquiries.  Still, it was a matter of life and death.  If she did not have a suitable weapon, she could not end her nightmare.  She owed it to her family, including herself.  While gesturing and speaking her mind was dueling between the two thoughts.
Walking out of an automotive body shop named "The Grease Monkey" Apricot lets out a low sigh.  "Pssst!" she hears from across the street.  She sees a middle-aged man of Uchellan decent in normal attire waving her over with his hand.  "Miss, overhear." the man says.  Apricot felt an extreme amount of apprehension being cont

Blue Ash Crisis: Chapter 8 (Alpha Release)
The wooden gate to Apricot's family home opens with the tug of her pale hand.  Cars and well-kept shrubbery line her street.  The shadows from the fixtures under streetlight purpose a constant suspicion of danger.  "They are coming to my house now," Apricot whispers under her breath her eyes darting towards every strange shape.  Stretching her fingers through her hair she tugged at her roots, the pain stealing any hope that this was a bad dream.  Drawing a deep breath, she shivers as the cool night breeze brushes against her skin.  A sense of comfort covering her fears for the moment as the air was not frigid.
Apricot had concluded these phantoms caused phenomena in their surroundings.  Arctic temperatures followed them along with electrical disturbances.  These two signs satisfied her as Guidestones to identify when these beings were near.  Moving through the night streets, Apricot could not help but notice how empty her quiet burrow seems.

Blue Ash Crisis: Chapter 6 Alpha Release
The warm yellow inner glow of the police station is surprisingly comforting for Apricot. Still shaken by the night's events Apricot sat in a wooden decoratively carved chair. The clerk's wooden desk is cluttered with various papers, folders, and photos. A small desk lamp trained over the mess giving off light for the reports in front of them. "Miss Apricot, your account of the situation is, troubling to say the least." says the clerk as he strikes his cheek and lip with his hand. "You are a student journalist it says and recently were in a hostage situation. Now you experienced a terrorist attack. Not an easy month for you mam now is it." he joked.
Apricot felt anger well up inside her. Instead of letting him have it however she nodded her head. "Yes, sir." she said.
The man looks down at the paper setting it down on his desk. He looks up to Apricot with a smile. "I am just about done with you but the state psychologist will want to speak with you. They will make a determination if tho

Blue Ash Crisis Chapter 4 Alpha Release
"Quite the daredevil are we Miss Apricot?" Miss Akagi's booming roar echoed inside the large empty lecture hall rattling Apricot's bones. She supposed anyone outside the hall can hear every single word. Miss Akagi's stern finger wags as a bludgeoning rod, brown eyes shift along with it.
"You are to report the current events, my dear, not become part of it." Miss Akagi stops her tongue lashing, straightening her posture adjusting her glasses with one hand while holding Apricots paper in the other.  Apricot dug her nails into her thigh as the stabbing silence continued with no sign of ending.  With an inhale, Miss Akagi continued "Though I must commend you for the article. It is rather thrilling." she turns her back towards Apricot walking towards her podium in the center of the lecture hall. "I would imagine it would be a work of fiction if not for that strike against you. Entering a crime scene unauthorized is a very serious charge missy." Apricot shrugged her shoulders in de

We have arranged for several of you to kill each other so we can take over your bodies.
At the end of the month or just about then I will have finished my first book.  I think of all the people in my life that has helped me reach this point.  All the people who have cheered me on over the years and encouraged me to reach out to my dreams.  All the wonderful people who have inspired me, and the people who have touched my life when I was stuck in deep depression.  Everyone who helped me get through my health issues and the many people who stood by me regardless of failing.  Even those who faltered and could not stand by my side after time passed.  It is amazing.  I am truly a blessed person.  Even with my struggles, I have never had to go it alone.  Thank you everyone sincerely.  I am so grateful for all you.  With the completion of this title will come the beginning of a new chapter in my life and the closing of another.  Things are about to get real interesting.  I just cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings.
UPDATE: Blue Ash Crisis will have no further releases until it has been finished in its entirety.  Thank you for your consideration.
In the night terror comes true against a blood red sky under the scarlet moon.
I am sometimes paralyzed by the scene I am writing.  It is an epic flux of animation impossible to capture in words yet so vivid in the mind... if only words could capture such motion.
I am still working on stuff I swear new things soon.  Life event folks, life events.
Here are some examples of style I am looking for.

I would like to commission several pieces of art in regards to my book series Blue Ash Crisis.  The story is about a college-aged girl who is drawn into a hidden war between dark cults and supernatural otherworldly beings.

The artist I choose needs to be able to draw both human characters and demonic character along with cybernetics and mechanical robots.

Please show an example of your work in either a note or post here along with a quote or price range for each piece.  I may select one or several artists.  If the relationship is good it may extend to other projects I have planned and a regular ongoing relationship as an illustrator may be available.

I am looking for some pieces to be full color whereas others will simply be black and whites.   Traditional art and digital art is both being looked at.  Thank you for reading in advanced.
I am writing again.  That is the good news.  I have had an opportunity to reset, to take an extended stop for about a month maybe a bit longer.  During this time I have been dealing with inner issues.  I also began to reflect on my own work.  I had to ask myself what I am attempting to say with my work.  I am entertaining and I am not preaching with my work, yet still, there is a message.  It might not appear so just by reading my work without taking a deeper look but I have discovered there is things I am trying to convey.  An obsession, I won't say what those themes are but I have discovered several of them.

In doing so I am learning a bit about myself.  Also how to better my craft.  I don't know why I am writing this but I felt like I needed to write this for some other time.  Here are my thoughts.  Enjoy them if you may.
A lot is going on still... I will catch up on releases but I need to take care of things at home.
Alright, I need to adjust my release schedule a little because of my setbacks in April.  A lot has been going on and I am back mostly from the emotional turmoil and lows.  So here is what is going to happen.  I got a bit of editing to do on Lyorta Episode 2 and a few rewrites so it will be coming out near the end of June, probably after my birthday June 24th.  As for Blue Ash Crisis, I am rushing through Episode 4 edits and rewriting Episode 5 for a late May release.  Mid-June around the 15th is when Episode 6 of Blue Ash Crisis will come out and Episodes 7 and 8 should be as scheduled for July and August.

 So rough timetable...
Blue Ash Crisis Episode 4: May 7thish
Blue Ash Crisis Epsidoe 5: May 21stish
Blue Ash Crisis Episode 6: June 15thish
Lyorta Episode 2: June 25thish

Sorry about the wait for the 4th episode the death of my aunt was really unexpected for me and some other life issues have been in the way.
I wanted to release this week, however, this is not going to happen.  My aunt died and I am having to assist in taking care of things.  There is a lot on my mind and the least of it is my book.  I need to be with family at this difficult time in our lives.  I hope you understand and stay tuned.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers in advance.
Some days you feel like screaming!  Today is one of those days.  However, regardless we press on and with heroic style smile knowing today is just today.
I find myself losing interest in other women.  Could it be, after all this time I allowed another fantastic spell to befall me?
To think I am half way to finishing Blue Ash Crisis is so awesome.  Got to do typesetting and junk.  To think next year at this time I will be finished with my second original book and have the first book for Lyorta done too and partway done with the second just astonishes me.  I have come far, and I am proud.
Blue Ash Crisis Episode 4 comes out April! Probably 2nd or 3rd week.
You never realize how much work goes into a battle system until you are designing it from the ground up. Heh, but it is pretty satisfying when you do.
So as you all know I have a growing list of projects I am working on.  Here are my official focuses, some of which you may not be entirely aware of yet. So here is my chance to fill you in.

Blue Ash Crisis: A novel that I have been releasing as a serial.  It releases once a month and will conclude with episode 8 in August.
Lyorta: The Saga Of Retribution: Once again another serial series I am releasing every quarter.  There are four releases a year in novella format.  There is no end in sight for Lyorta expect this series to be coming out for a number of years.
An End To All You Know: A novel being released like Blue Ash Crisis planned for the first release in September of 2018 following the conclusion of Blue Ash Crisis.  The planned conclusion will be set for April of 2019.

An original role-playing system I have not named yet. This system will be a companion to my novel series allowing readers to roleplay out the novels and experience their own adventures in the worlds I have crafted.  The first focus right now is going to be the Lyorta world.  Later I may even make a companion game to Blue Ash Crisis and most definitely am planning on doing one for An End To All You Know. This roleplay system will hopefully be designed to mostly forgo dice though for those pesky players disputes can be covered by dice rolls and also for more dynamic adventures.  The storyteller or game master or whatever it will be called will have a considerable amount of power to control the narration of their story.  However, I want it to be designed in a way the DM competes with the players in scenarios.  I will first release an extremely general format rulebook and then adapt those rulebooks with special sourcebooks for each game.  So there will be a standardized format for all games to follow.  I have spent YEARS on this, longer than Lyorta actually as this was originally going to be part of my Dark Saga series (which I am still working on).

I am still producing music occasionally as a hobby and artwork as well.  However, my main focus right now is my novels.  Well, I hope that updates everyone and yeah, there you go.
Life is sometimes like watching a plastic model of dreams melting in an oven, other times on rare occasion we realize that plastic models are not real, but melted plastic has a habit of sticking to the skin.
Today I am going to spend the day listening to Blue Ash Crisis re-reading my story to get a grasp on the last half of the book.  I am so happy to see everything coming together and it looks so far exactly how I wanted to in my own mind.  Granted I am cursed to have a perspective above the rest.  Hopefully, it inspires the same images from the soil.

Shocker I know, for someone as dark and pervy as me to be a Christian... I know right your shocked. The thing about being a Christian is not about being a perfect person. Its all about being a flawed person and regardless of our flaws we can have a relationship with our perfect creator.
At the end of the month or just about then I will have finished my first book.  I think of all the people in my life that has helped me reach this point.  All the people who have cheered me on over the years and encouraged me to reach out to my dreams.  All the wonderful people who have inspired me, and the people who have touched my life when I was stuck in deep depression.  Everyone who helped me get through my health issues and the many people who stood by me regardless of failing.  Even those who faltered and could not stand by my side after time passed.  It is amazing.  I am truly a blessed person.  Even with my struggles, I have never had to go it alone.  Thank you everyone sincerely.  I am so grateful for all you.  With the completion of this title will come the beginning of a new chapter in my life and the closing of another.  Things are about to get real interesting.  I just cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings.
