Eithalica Quadruple Planet
Niavai the Yalengem

Soon to be an epic graphic novel …

On Eithalica, time sleeps beneath a sky of tree-leaves, and men of strange tongue walk with Yalengem, a race of luminescent sages.

Neither squire Lorkan nor his Yalengem friend, Niavai, know how to restore peace to their war-torn kingdom, or calm the ailed groaning of the forest. But Niavai is sure the long lost Chetnum Empire knew—by warding off the spirits lurking in the shadows.

When the spirits rise to snare Eithalica in living nightmares, Lorkan resolves to follow Niavai and recover the ancient knowledge. But their search becomes a pathless suffering in enemy lands on a distant moon; a titanic strain on Lorkan’s will, and on his faith in Yalengem.

    #EithalicaMicroblog Draft #3 is almost complete, and my peers tell me there likely need not be a 4th. I am hoping to finish editing sometime in 2019.

    Sometimes my feelings on creative work lead me to imagine laying a giant egg: great pain and difficulty, followed by enormous relief, and a prize in my hand. 🤔🤷‍♂️

    #EithalicaMicroblog Okay, I lied … Sorry 😖 ONE MORE distraction, making a YouTube video about a timely issue.

    Then back to writing Eithalica FOR REAL.

    Sry for silence. Past few yrs accumulated HUGE backlog of non-Eithalica work that was weighing on me. In past 3 months, I’ve cleared it!

    I hate giving Eithalica only partial attention. Back at it this week—head-first w NO reserve.

    Finishing script this yr!
