One relocation later I notice that some some news have accumulated over time, which I completely missed to tell around here.
In fact, it's a lot of news, but I shall restrict myself on stuff related to Telaya & Dioman (the rest is not all-that-entertaining anyway).

1st of all, I changed publication strategy: "This Side of Darkness" is now published as a nice, printed hardcover book by ... unfortunately in German only for now. I have also put the online version on hold at the moment, because I felt that the chapter-based publication I opted for in the beginning, did not work too well.

However, there is a digital English version of the book available, too, and even a particularly cool one: the "movie" version, widescreen format, with soundtrack from get it at

Also, if there's enough interest, I would think about self-publishing a first paperback edition (print files and ISBN are ready, I just can't afford to pre-finance the edition right into the blue). Pricing should be around US$10 + shipment (which amounts to another US$ 4-5, from Germany to the US, as an example).
Just drop me a note here at deviantart, or at to help me get an estimation of whether there's enough interest or not.

Last, but not least: after my first attendance at the in June on the artist's side of the table, I will also attend… as an exhibitor, and share a booth with (which probably will set me into a mere observer's role, watching Jenny and her Darkness Over Cannae crowd from the side. ;) )

So much for now.

Going back to sorting plot threads for book 2. :)
  • Listening to: the computer\'s fan, as always ...
  • Reading: what I write ... again
  • Watching: well, you figure out
  • Playing: never
  • Eating: done already
  • Drinking: water
