The Ravencrest Chronicles: Wave two

The Ravencrest Chronicles: Wave Two

The next wave of Ravencrest books are coming up in the second half of 2019. Unlike the episodic nature of the first wave – which focused on introducing key characters and the setting – the second wave will be a serialized epic told over the course of four novellas.

A mysterious cult has infiltrated every part of Seahaven, from the most respected nobility all the way down to the dockworker’s guild. Gareth leads the charge in unraveling this dark conspiracy, joined by friends old and new.

Keep an eye out for more information about Midnight Masques, Tapestry of Lies, Cult of the Shadow Queen, and Upon a Black Wing, all coming in 2019!

Upcoming Release – Friday October 12, 2018

His first title with Kyanite Publishing LLC, “Night Shift,” is a science fiction story about a detective in the fictional city of New Angeles. Readers familiar with the science fiction subgenre called “cyberpunk” will appreciate the crime-ridden, dystopian setting. “Night Shift” was originally a serialized story Mr. Bass released online. He’s especially fond of serials and novellas that can be collected into longer works because they’re sized for today’s busy audience.

As various threads start to come together, the big picture is revealed to be more than he ever bargained for. As bullets start to fly from both directions, the only thing Harold knows for sure is that he isn’t being paid enough to deal with this.

The Fantasy Genre: Part 2

The second part of our series exploring the fantasy genre is now available!

In this second section of a three-part journey, I’ll be examining each of the major sub-genres of fantasy more closely.  In the first part, we looked at the history and evolution of the fantasy genre as a whole.  This time, we will be focusing more on the content and differences of the four major sub-genres of fantasy literature.  In the third part, we will explore the more niche sub-genres and sub-sub-genres that tackle very specific themes.

Future Epic Fantasy Project

I have hinted in the past about some epic fantasy brewing in the background.  I’m still in the planning phases, but have a general idea for a concept and have put together an aesthetic that hints at the feel of it.

The immortals of the faewilde have been waging a war for millenia, and the fallout from this conflict is starting to affect reality as we know it.  One man has the power to end the war.  Can a mortal put an end to a conflict older than memory itself, or is the world doomed to destruction as it is torn asunder by the magic of the fae?
