The final cover art for my novella "The Journal and The Stone"! Done by my extremely talented friend Gary ... check out more of his artwork here, and his work on "The Patrons".
The novella should be up for preorder within a week or so.
"The Journal and The Stone"
Curiosity killed the cat. Or so the saying goes ... all Klane can hope is that curiosity doesn't also kill gnomes.
Klane is an uncharacteristically adventurous gnome, who's been smitten with the urge to explore places of the world few people--let alone hill gnomes--would dare to go. Since he was able, he has sailed down the Amethyst River and her many distributaries to satisfy his wanderlust. When Klane finds himself in the bowels of an abandoned mine holding a valuable stone and a dead miner's journal, he knows his days of lighthearted adventure are over.
I will do my best to be posting new content every Wednesday. Tentatively dubbed "Workshop Wednesday" I will relatively unedited practice pieces I create to work on certain aspects of the writing craft. Bear in mind military service and training schedules are unpredictable and may be cause for the occasional late post.
In the future I plan to have a set schedule for posting about other writing-related things, or topics in my interest field such as Table Top War Gaming and Video Games.
Thank you for your support and feedback!
