Hey out there!
As you might have noticed a few posts ago, my first still unpublished novel (at least by traditional channels) - The Forest Kingdom of Drisnia; Book One: The Spell of Forgetting (from 2008) is now in the process of being uploaded online chapter, by chapter, by chapter. Be that as it may, I thought that it might be an opportune juncture at which to take the time to blog-out a release schedule of what's gone before and what's to come. Likewise, I'd additional like to promote some other forthcoming literary outings that are also set to be hosted by Wattpad in the near future, so see those near the bottom of this post. Anyway, here's the release schedule:

As you can see it takes quite some time to put out an entire multi-hundred page book in this way, but then again, doing it like this means that the manuscript will at least benefit from yet another fresh revision before the general public lays eyes on it.
Upon completion I'm fairly certain that the first Drisnia Series novella; "The Song of Umeztad" will follow immediately after, as it was written as the abbreviated follow-up to the sizable novel and features events that pick up from where the main story-line leaves off. One of the distinguishing factors of the novella is that it features the solitary tale of a secondary character (Umeztad) coming into his own. Personally it's my favorite work in the series, and if you like very nuanced and psychological adult Epic Fantasy I urge you to give it a whirl.
Also set to go up on Wattpad (with dates still forthcoming) will be a number of Short Stories turned Film Scripts (I think at least three), as well as an actual copy of a Nevekari Enterprises Spec Script for an Existing Series that won a minor screenwriting award. The latter script was penned as a sample episode of the then hit Sci-Fi-Tech-Crime-Thriller Series "Person of Interest", and obviously, now that the show is off-the-air it can pretty much just serve as an example of scripting prowess, or maybe high-level fan-fiction.
Anyway, I hope some of you out there click on over, and if you're more interested in the Gauntlet's take on Media, Culture, Politics, a new drink recipe, or are waiting for a new music release - never fear those are not far behind.
Till next time.
