Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality

Silent Ground Part 1 is coming June 30th

It's time, everyone!

Time to get ready for a new Quil book, Silent Ground Part 1 is finally here and available for pre-order! And you're not going to have to wait long for it either. Even better? You're also not going to have to wait that long for part 2. The first installment is going to be available June 30th 2017 (ignore the release date it says currently, I was tired and selected the wrong damn month)

The very first fucked up book I ever made. Like The Gods' Games, this one is rooted to my teenage years. I always called it 'Fallocaust's grandfather' because without Silent Ground, I would've never had the balls to write Fallocaust how I wanted to write it.
Like The Gods' Games, it's been completely re-written to match my writing skills now (one that is actually legible), and is ready to be read, devoured, and hopefully ready to give everyone reading it nightmares. It's currently listed under gay/thriller since Amazon gives you two options for genres, but I'll be contacting Amazon (again) to try and add psychological to the thriller genre option. It's no fair I have to have one of my genres be 'gay' by default, dammit! But that's a rant for another time.

So, here it is, Silent Ground Part 1.

The blurb.

Sasha’s crazy. He knows he’s crazy, his uncle and best friend both know he’s crazy, and for a long time, they’d accepted it and loved him anyway.
But now, now things are changing. Sasha’s migranes are getting worse, there’s a voice inside of his head that keeps demeaning him, and for some screwed up reason, the only thing that cures these migranes, is Sasha’s own damn blood––which he has to resort to masochism to extract.

This is not okay; this is quickly becoming not okay and Sasha doesn’t know what the hell he’s supposed to do. What’s happening to him? And how much longer can Sasha’s uncle and best friend deal with it before they just give up on their mentally-disturbed loved one for good?

And that’s not even the worst of it. Oh no, not in the least. There are people after Sasha, two men wearing black cloaks. They attacked him on a dark road, and now these two are telling Sasha that he’s a nightcrawler like them… and it’s time to come home.

The leader calls himself Kheva, but to Sasha, he’s Master.
The second is called Kel, but to Sasha, he’s brother.
And who is Sasha? He’s a nightcrawler like them… but until he earns his place… he’s merely their unwilling slave.

Fallocaust book 4 'A God Among Insects' Excerpt

It's time! To celebrate me reaching 100k on A God Among Insects (105k now) I'm releasing a portion of the first chapter rough draft of book 4. Obviously don't go near this if you haven't caught up with all of the books since you'll find spoilers galor (hey, that rhymes).

Hope everyone enjoys this first chapter. I know I need to go back to Silent Ground but I'm pretty much Drake with candy right now. I'm clinging to it and crying whenever I try to pull myself away. Silent Ground will be coming soon though, I just, ya know, kinda am loving this book.

Enjoy and happy reading, you'll find the excerpt in the main cluster of links 'Book 4 Excerpt' or just click this link. Or if you want to read it in a more prettier setting, here is a dropbox link.

Garden of Spiders Volume 2 is out and live!

Garden of Spiders Volume 2 is out and live! Which means the next Fallocaust book I will be writing will be book 4. I hope everyone is warm wherever they are, and of course, reading. Happy Holidays, guys! I can now fully say goodbye to the cold, yet kinda hot, clutches of Elish and continue working on my newest project Silent Ground.

Happy reading!! The physical book of Garden of Spiders Volume 2 should be out soon too.


Garden of Spiders Volume 2 is coming!

The time is nigh! Garden of Spiders Volume 2 will be released December 20th. Pre-orders also available now.

After many many months, and many more months editing and rewriting, it's finally fucking finished. A Word document that has been on my laptop for so long is now closed, and it's onward to the next project!


The Dekker family is enjoying the longest stretch of calm they’ve had in years. But at what cost? Elish is a veritable slave with no will of his own, and although his siblings and his sengil wish for the old Elish to return, the man in question is adamant that he’s happier this way. Even though Silas treats him like a dog, mental slavery is better than depression and eventual suicide, right?

However, it seems that Elish may soon not have a choice. Forces outside of the family are hard at work, and someone from Elish’s distant past is determined to turn him into the man he once was.

No matter the consequences.


Garden of Spiders is now live!

It's out! Well, most of you know that already, but it's fucking out! After months and months, finally volume 1 gets pried from my clingy grasp and put into your awaiting hands. This book took a hell of a lot longer than I'd planned, mostly because it ended up being a hell of a lot bigger than I'd planned! My very first two volume companion book, and like I've said previously, I'm still going to have to do Garden of Spiders 2 to properly finish the last big chunk of Elish's life. 

But volume 1 is finally here, and I hope you all enjoy reading Elish's story just as much as I enjoyed writing it. Elish's mind is anything but simple, and the man we all know and love, wasn't born making people tremble at the mere presence of him. Elish started out as a boy who loved his master dearly, and it is through the events of this book that you see just what happened to that sweet child to make him the cold chimera he is today. Prepare to cry, laugh, hate me, and love me, and probably all four at once during some scenes. But most of all, prepare to be welcomed back to the Fallocaust.

It's good to be home!


Garden of Spiders Volume 1 is coming!

Garden of Spiders Volume 1 is coming October 31st 2016

When you look at a man’s past, who he is makes sense. Things previously shrouded become clear, and the airs of mystery that once clung so tightly to him, begin to fade away until all that is left is the being he hid like a dark secret.

Elish’s beginnings did not start out with a bang, but inside of a peaceful home far from the savage realities of the greywastes. But like all things in the Fallocaust, the peace didn’t last. One can be sheltered from the monsters of the dead world, but you can never escape the demon who hides under the mask of a smiling king.

Because in the end, reality is a beast that cares not for the perfect images it shatters, or the world it devours piece by piece. But reality can also strengthen, it can light you on fire, burn you to cinders, and then watch proudly as the phoenix rises from the ashes, stronger than it ever was before.

However, underneath each feather there is a scar, and though blood pumps hot through his veins, it is from a heart cold and closed off.

But it didn’t start out that way, quite the opposite. 
And this is his story.

Pre-orders available here! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LZ90PZC

Garden of Spiders is FINISHED!

IT'S FINISHED! I'm happy to announce Garden of Spiders is finished. Now onto the part that makes me pull out my hair in chunks... the editing!

This book was definitely something else. It ended up being a lot larger than I thought it would be and will be the first two volume companion book. I suppose knowing Elish this is no surprise that he would demand a bigger book, and it's also no surprise that I will have to do a Garden of Spiders 2 like I had said previously. GoS2 will deal with the later half of Elish's life, something I unfortunately wasn't able to get to in book 1, but that's in the way off future.

So it's coming! How it usually works is once I'm done my editing and my beta readers are well into it, I'll be making the release date announcement with the preorder up and the cover reveal. I have a cover I might like, but I also might make a few other ones until I come across one I really like.

So sit tight, guys, Elish is coming. I'll be working even harder now for the next month getting this book up to snuff and making it everything I always dreamed it will be. Editing is so much more stressfull than writing; I'm putting bets on at least two mental breakdowns before volume 2's release.

Now I get to celebrate with cheesecake, as is tradition.

Garden of Spiders is coming!

Man, Garden of Spiders is 437,000 words currently. The only book bigger than this one is The Suicide King. If this isn't a testiment to Elish's demanding personality, I don't know what is lol. But I have good news, there was a puzzle I have been trying to figure out, a puzzle that if I didn't figure it out, it would've probably taken me another month to finish this book. But i did it! I managed to come up with an idea that I think will work, and thus I'll be able to avoid a story ark I didn't really want to write anyway. So with that in mind, I think this book will be finished within the next two weeks, maybe less. After that, it'll be a couple weeks editing, and I'll be able to pass it along to whatever beta readers I can round up. I also already have the covers planned out (which is quite a relief, it's usully not the case). So I think within the month, maybe a month and a bit... we'll have the announcement and release date for Garden of Spiders Volume 1.

I'm really excited about this book. Elish is such a dynamic character, so complex and complicated. Volume 1 will be about Elish as a child and as a teenager, figuring out how to survive having King Silas as a master, and also dealing with his own internal issues (which have stemmed from... well... having King Silas as a master lol). You'll get to see the cold chimera in a way you've never seen him before, and will be able to walk beside Elish on the long journey of him becoming the man we all know and love today. By the end of this book, it'll be clear why he is the way he is, and his feelings about Silas will make even more sense.

That being said though, there will be a Garden of Spiders 2. I'm not going to be able to cover everything I wanted to cover in Garden of Spiders v1 and v2. I had dreams of being able to have the end of Garden of Spiders have Jade in it, and a bit of Elish's side during the events of Breaking Jade, but unfortunately this book is already massive and he's still nowhere near done telling his story. I'm not sure when GoS2 will start, whether it'll be a future companion book or what (I also have plans for a Severing Sanguine 2 since like GoS I didn't get everything I wanted done with Sangy's story either). So once again, I have the opposite of writer's block, I've said this before and I'll say it again... I really gotta clone myself.

So sit tight, guys, it's coming!! I'm near the end, it's in sight, and soon Elish will release me from his cold clutches so I can finish that other stand-alone book I had previously been working on (before Elish ordered me to start his book). The stand-alone book (formerly called A God Among Insects but not anymore, I'll get into that later) will follow GoS sooner rather than later, there won't be another 7 month wait for the next book release, that book already has a lot of it written, so it won't be too too long.

I also wanted to put up a link for a Fallocaust Tumblr page that several of my awesome readers created. Check it out, it's really well done and I quite love it.

That's it! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I melt in the heat, I miss my winter and my darkness!

Garden of Spiders excerpt

Hello Everyone!

As promised on my facebook, here is the first two chapters of Garden of Spiders the book I'm currently working on and Book 3's companion book. You can find it right on the main navigation area of my website under 'Garden of Spiders Excerpt' it'll be up until the book's release.

I'm really enjoying writing this book. Elish is such a complex character and he has so many things going on in his head. It's been challenging to live inside of his mind, and seeing the intricate and complicated relationship he has, and has had, with Silas since the beginning. Elish is a complicated duck to say the least, but just like all of my characters, he has a reason for being who he is. I'm looking forward to sharing this book with the world, and offering some insight on one of Fallocaust's most dynamic and powerful characters.


Happy reading!

The Suicide King Volume 2 is live!

As most of you know but I still need to make the fancy announcement anyway, Volume 2 is out! The conclusion to The Suicide King, Book 3 of The Fallocaust Series is live and available for your sadistic reading pleasure.

Enjoy everyone! It's many months until Garden of Spiders and even more until I start Book 4. So eat slowly! And also, we're already #1 in the lgbt science fiction and our overall ranking keeps climbing! So thank you once again, all my awesome readers, for making this possible.



The Suicide King Volume 2 is coming!

Here we go again!

The Suicide King Volume 2 will be released January 11th 2016. I'm not going to post the little blurb here since I know some of you haven't finished Volume 1 yet, but it's coming!

The Amazon page is still being created but it appears to work, not sure if the pre-orders are working yet but they might be, and if not, they will be soon. The Suicide King Volume 2 is almost as big as Volume 1, for a grand total of 557,000 words! This is my 6th book release in under two years (though Breaking Jade was completed before Fallocaust Book 1's release and The Gods' Games was partially done) and a grand total of 1,971,000 words (ish). Yes, I am indeed insane, and yes, my head hurts. 2016 will have A God Among Insects released, Book 3's companion book, and hopefully a TGG book, either Book 2 or a prequel I've been wanting to write for the past 12 years. After that (or before TGG's book, I don't know quite yet) will be Book 4! And I can go through this madness all over again.

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas, I definitely did, and that everyone has great plans for New Years.

The Suicide King is out!

Happy Release Day, Everyone!

Over 7 months ago, on May 5th, I started writing The Suicide King, and now the day has come where it gets pried from my clingy talons and given to my readers. This book has turned out to be my biggest project to date, with the final page count being 557,113 towering over Book 2's 405,000. Going into it, I never expected it to grow to this size, but well, as the series goes on and more characters are added, their storylines get added too and as does the book size. I hope Book 4 won't be this huge, because my god this book almost killed me! But I also said that about Book 2 and look what happened lol.

For 7 months now The Suicide King has been a companion on my laptop, the Word document always open and always there, waiting to be written and waiting to be read, and it does sting a little bit when the day comes that the book is complete, and it gets added to all my other completed books in my main folder. It's a good hurt though, because it means I fulfilled my goal, and I have another awesome book I can give to my devoted readers. It's also always great to start a new project, and now A God Among Insects, my next book (a stand-alone book I have mentioned before), has taken that place on my laptop, and is calling for me to keep writing it as I type this.

It's hard saying goodbye to my boys, and every time I finish a Fallocaust book there is a mourning period. It will be months before I go back to the greywastes and Skyfall, and even then it'll be through the eyes of Elish and not Reaver and Killian, but in order to move on and get one step closer to writing Book 4, it has to be done, but I still feel like those boys take a piece of me with every book I complete. Fallocaust is my life, it has my heart, and I love those characters and that world more than anything. When the day comes that the series is completed, I'll probably need to be committed.

So, here it is, Volume 1 of The Suicide King, Book 3 of The Fallocaust Series. In a few day’s time, I will be releasing the cover for volume 2 and the release date as well, and you'll get to read the chaotic but awesome conclusion to Book 3. After this, for the series anyways, will be Elish's companion book which will be called Garden of Spiders, and for non-series books, I will be releasing next A God Among Insects, a thriller/suspense/horror book I started in my late teens and have been meaning to complete for some time now. Once those two books are completed I'm hoping to start working on either Book 2 of The Gods' Games, or a prequel about Anagin's life during the Black War and after, no name for that one yet. And then onto Book 4! Yes, it's a lot of work, and I'll be grey as a mule once I'm done all of it, but writing is my life, and though I know I take on way too much work, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Enjoy The Suicide King Volume 1, Volume 2 is right around the corner, and sorry in advance for the tears, but though there may be tears, I also promise laughter, suspense, HOLY CRAP moments, and a whole lot of aww. Thank you for continuing this journey with me, for making my dreams of being a writer come true, and for being the best readers a guy could ask for.

I'd also like to take this moment to make a small request. If you do have the Kindle Unlimited program, if you could, please borrow my books free through them. They recently switched to a pay-per-pages-read program instead of per borrow, and as you can guess, since my books are huge, there are a lot of pages. Because of the KU program, since my old job has decided to take a nosedive, I've been able to pay my bills and continue working from home, something I wouldn't have been able to do without the program. I know a lot of people like having their own personal copies of my books, but if you do have the KU program, and if it isn't too much trouble, please also borrow them on there, so I don't have to go working at McDonalds or someplace equally horrible lol. My days are devoted to writing and I'd love to keep it that way.

Thanks again, my awesome readers. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and as Big Shot would say... Kah!

Sincerely, Quil

Third Update at 6:22 PM: We're number one! And out of the millions of books on Amazon, The Suicide King Volume 1 ranks at 4,169, and that doesn't even include the pre-orders. Thanks you guys for making this possible.

The Suicide King Physical books.

Hey, everyone!

I'm excited to announce that I was able to reach my goal of having the physical book of The Suicide King Volume 1 available for purchase! I was really hoping to have it finished for release day, and it's here in all its glory.

It's available on amazon and also on createspace. Createspace is the company that makes the books so buying the books directly from them cuts out the amazon middleman and gives me a bit extra of that royalties pie, but I know it's probably cheaper shipping-wise for Amazon. I'll supply the link anyway though, to help put cat food on the table:  https://www.createspace.com/5910551.

I'll also be working on getting Book 2 ready for a physical book release. I wanted to read through it before I put it into physical form like I did with Fallocaust and Breaking Jade, and The Suicide King has just been taking up all of my time, so I haven't had the time to do it. But while I'm writing my newest book A God Among Insects, I'll be reading Fallocaust Book 2 The Ghost and the Darkness at the same time. So hopefully in a couple months it'll be available as well.

Release day is right around the corner, guys. It'll be here before you know it. Look for an announcement for volume 2 soon. I have the cover all ready and the book itself is almost complete, but I decided to wait until after volume 1's release to make the announcement. I'm just as excited as you guys! If you haven't pre-ordered The Suicide King yet, here is the link, and it'll also lead you to where you can buy the physical book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017WR6K3O


The Suicide King is coming.

It's go time!

The Suicide King Book 3 of The Fallocaust Series will be released December 22nd 2015.

After months of being separated, Reaver and Killian are finally together; but their happiness is short lived. Unbeknownst to Killian, Reaver is struggling with his own inner demons, demons that threaten to not only rip Reaver apart, but their entire relationship as well.

Unfortunately though, it’s not only demons they have to worry about. Reaver and Killian are going to quickly realize that the plaguelands hold to them a threat that the greywastes and Skyfall have never seen; a dangerous creature that has discovered just how valuable immortals are.

And back in Skyfall, the Dekker family is about to be tested in ways they’ve never been before. Chimeras who were once seen as unstoppable will be stopped, those deemed shatterproof will be shattered, and the higher these men are, the longer and harder they’ll fall. Who will rise from the ashes, and who will burn in the flames still remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure…

… it’ll be quite the ride.

Pre-orders now available!

also available on the Kindle Unlimited program.

The Suicide King is completed.

It's done. The Suicide King is completed.

Well, pretty much completed. I need to do the prologue and a bit of the ending but like Severing Sanguine, and Book 2, I'll eventually rewrite the ending anyways once I'm done editing, so I'm calling it in and saying it's done, and moving onto editing! Yesterday almost killed me, I was writing all day and wrote 9,186 god damn words. I wanted to have it finished and at 1 in the morning I finally achieved that, holy fuck did my eyes hurt from staring at that damn screen! So I had no Halloween lol

Fuck, this was one long fucking book, guys. I was guessing 500,000 but it ended up taking longer to put in everything I wanted to have in it and end it the way I wanted to end. The final count you ask? 550,000 and it'll grow after the prologue and ending, plus I wanted to put in a chapter in the beginning of volume two. So look at and end count at around 560,000. The longest thing I've ever written and ever will write.

Obviously it'll be split up into two volumes. The first one will be around 300,000 the second 260,000. Right now I'm just going to concentrate on getting volume 1 out and then worry about volume 2. I've told myself I won't rush this book or rush my betas even though my mind is screaming at me to get it out by 2015, the only person demanding I get it done quickly is me. I know all of you don't mind waiting and everyone has been so understanding even though the past week I've been tearing out my hair and going manic with stress.

I hope you like The Suicide King. This book deals with a lot of emotion and all the main characters go through changes. It has some sad moments, happy moments, and moments that hopefully make you laugh out loud. You'll see your favourite characters get brought to their knees, and others finally see some redemption. You'll also see the chess pieces get moved around the board, and family dynamics change within the Dekker family when powerful figures are suddenly gone and those who stayed in the shadows are forced to stand up and lead. The Suicide King also answers a lot of questions brought up in Book 2, and, of course, gives you a whole new set of mysteries to try and unravel before Book 4.

So, it's finally done, it's finished, but since I'm also my own editor my work isn't done (it never is) and now it's time to read through it and bring it from first draft to final, then its off to the betas and then your hands. Thank you for all of your support in the last several months and I hope The Suicide King lives up to all expectations.

Release date and cover reveal will be when I'm done editing, so look for it in the next couple weeks. I'll most likely be setting up pre-orders at that time too.

Volume 1 of The Suicide King is now done!

(I actually finished volume 1 a few days ago but I've been bad with updating things since I've been up to my ears in The Suicide King, but here it is now!)

End of Volume 1

Well, The Fallocaust Series Book 3 'The Suicide King' Volume 1 is officially done! And like I suspected its clocked in at 301,000 words! It ended with a bang, literally, and now I can move into Volume 2 and wrap up this crazy adventure the boys are currently on, after throwing a few wrenches in their path too, of course.

The Suicide King is definitely a good name for this book. A lot of our beloved characters are on a path of destruction, all in their own unique way. TSK Volume 1 has been nicknamed by me as 'Destruction' whereas Volume 2 is going to be 'Redemption'. Each of our boys have caught on fire and have burned in one way or another, but Volume 2 will show each one crawl out of the cinders and become greater versions of themselves. As Mario Puzo who wrote The Godfather is quoted as saying "Great men are not born great, they grow great." and that is one way you can describe what I have done in Volume 1. During The Fallocaust Series and their companion books you are introduced to characters described as flawless, and men who have reached their prime and have the ego to back it up. You have Elish an elegant demigod who commands respect and dominates his brothers and all of Skyfall with an iron fist wrapped in silk, Reaver, our dark chimera, who prides himself on being cruel, heartless, and unbreakable. And Silas, the mental shapeshifter, the puppet master, who controls the world and his family with a wry smirk and a gliding walk; the king who ended the world that is always ten steps ahead of everyone else.

But unfortunately these three, and all of the boys, are about to be tested. Men who once were seen as unstoppable will be stopped, those deemed shatterproof will be shattered, and the higher these men are, the longer and harder they will be falling. It'll be a hard journey to go on with them, but in the end all who writhe in the ashes will rise from them, and when they turn their greatest weaknesses into their most powerful of strengths, only then will they truly be worthy of the titles they so freely put on themselves. The Suicide King is about loss, it is about recovery; it is about swallowing their pride to save themselves and those they love, and accepting that they might not be as perfect as they thought they were.

But with self-awareness comes power, and the moment these boys realize that admitting weakness and your own faults will lead them to become even stronger than they once were... it will truly be a sight to see. And they're going to need this newly realized strength. They're going to need to cauterize their weaknesses and learn to rely on their partners for strength and power... because in the shadows a greater threat is growing, one that doesn't threaten just one or two chimeras, but every single one of them.
Immortal and mortal alike.

And it's on to Volume 2!

I also want to apologize for slacking on updating the chimera glossery and the FalloCats, plus I have been wanting to add a fanart page. The Suicide King has been taking all of my attention and I have been having some health issues also zapping my energy. But I am going to try and update the Chimera Glossery and eventually will be adding a glossery for The Gods' Games which will consist of things like kingdom names, races, animals, things like that and eventually some family trees and character bios. But I already have a heaping plate right now finishing The Suicide King, chimera glossery, editing and all of that so this is definitely a future project. 

Happy Reading Everyone!

The Gods' Games is now live!

The Gods' Games is now out and live! Both versions too.

Graphic Edition:


Not-So Graphic Edition:


The pre-orders have now been released as well and I can sit back and celebrate while everyone reads! Well, for a few hours anyways because quite frankly I'm at an awesome part of The Suicide King so I have been ignoring my partner and best friend in favour for writing until my fingers bleed! I hope everyone loves this book and falls in love with the characters like I have. 

For many years The Gods' Games was a file getting moved from computer to computer and every time I looked at it I would feel guilt that this incompleted book was just sitting there collecting dust when it had so much potential. But every time I'd look at it I would see my writing style from years ago, my shitty grammar, and something that I knew would take a lot of work to bring up to readable standards. Finally when I was in my early twenties I rewrote it, but then Fallocaust came and barrelled itself into my life and it was put aside again but at least in much better condition. Now after a lot of hard work I am seeing something so many years in the making finally released. 

In truth I'm glad it took this long, because I wouldn't have been able to do the story or my characters justice if I released it even last year with Fallocaust, because I have learned so much in the last year since releasing my first book. The Gods' Games started out differently, Ben was in his 30s and a lawyer, and none of them had a sexual preferrence due to me just not being comfortable as a teen writing gay characters (the first time doing so was in a future book I'll be releasing hopefully in the next year). Erick had only a few chapters and there wasn't even any swearing due to my wish for it to be read by a wider audience. 

Now as you can see, it's much different and what the book originally started out as is a shadow of what it is now. I wish I could put into better words how much it means to me to see this book released today. It was the first book I wrote with 100% original characters in an original world, not Sonic the Hedgehog, Harry Potter, or X-men fanfiction, something i could really call my very own.

 When I first started writing The Gods' Games (then called something different) I was living on a rural island with generator power that was rarely on. We would turn the generator on for a few hours to keep the freezers cold and to charge the inverters and whenever he did I would go to where the desktop computer was, bundled up in the middle of winter and write this book with my fingers numb in a cold building on the property. I just had to write everything I had thought of the previous night, even if I was doing it while being able to see my breath. And when I moved into my first apartment at 17, I brought this book with me on a red floppy disk and wrote from my desktop so old and so shitty it had 4gb of hard drive space.

 So enjoy this book, I know for my m/m romance readers who might not usually read fantasy it might be different than what you're used to reading, but I hope you will love it anyways. This is a day I will never forget, the day The Gods' Games finally got published.
Happy Reading.

The Suicide King except + updates on The Gods' Games

Hello lovelys,

I have been really busy with The Suicide King and a quiet Quil is a hard working Quil. Actually that's not entirely true I got my Xbox One on Friday so a few hours has been devoted to The Elder Scrolls Online (If anyone has an xbox add me: MassChaotic).

So, just to show how much I appreciate all of you, instead of a small except I am posting Chapters 2 and 3 of The Suicide King. Elish and Reaver's. I was going to just do Reaver's but in truth Reaver spends a lot of that chapter monologing since he has no one else to talk to and I wanted to include one with a little more plot action not just Reaver being happy and giddy (even though it's so cute). Of course, don't read this if you're not caught up on the books!

Also, most of you won't care about this I'll post it anyways. The Gods' Games isn't going to be split up into vol 1 and 2 in respects to it being two separate books. I figured out how to hyperlink inside of the kindle/kobo/whatever so I'm splitting it up but selling it as one whole book with links to vol 2 in the beginning. The price will eventually go up but for now since it's new and I just want people to read it, it'll stay at 4.60 US. BUT there are going to be two versions. The Gods' Games was never meant to have graphic sex because I wanted it to be able to reach a wider audience. Whereas a lot of people would be okay having gay main characters I'm not an idiot, I understand graphic gay sex might turn off people even if I personally highly recommend it. My beta readers got the 'graphic' version with the sex scene I wrote as more of a 'I know you guys will like it so I'll leave it in but I'll eventually take it out' sort of thing. I've gotten good feedback on it cause ya'll are weird like me so I've decided to release a 'Graphic Version' and on release day will also be releasing a 'Not-So Graphic Version' which will still have fondling and some sexual things but no full on, detailed sex like you see in Fallocaust. Like I said I want TGG to reach a wider audience than Fallocaust and TGG was never meant to have graphic sex in it anyways, BUT I am now 26 years old, I write differently than I did when I was writing the basis for TGG. Book 2 and on most likely will contain more sex, darker themes ect, so this also frees me up to have my cake and eat it too. I can write my graphic version and then for the milk drinkers I can edit out the elf-on-elf rape (that hasnt happened yet but, eh, it's me) and they don't have to be squidged out. This gives me a hell of a lot more creative freedom and hopefully will lead to TGG being recommended to more people.

Um, okay, what else... I don't think there's anything. Oh, I am going to be putting The Gods' Games in the KU program but like I said before you can still buy it normally on Amazon. For my non kindle users you'll not be forgotten. I am tossing around the idea of either releasing TGG a few days early on smashwords until July 6th to give people a chance to buy it, or/and putting a 'mystery box' for sale on the FalloShop so I can bypass Amazon's search bot who'll ding me for having it for sale anywhere else, and i also have paypal. So never fear, you'll still be able to get a copy and I can do my little KU experiment.

2 more weeks until The Gods' Games comes out! AH! Time for the anxiety to come back!
