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.

    #EithalicaMicroblog Oops … previous tweet (now deleted) said my characters were traveling 200% too fast in previous draft.

    Turns out I misread my own map scale. 😑🤦‍♂️

    I’m a lot smarter when I’m not working a day job.

    #EithalicaMicroblog lots of brainstorming and mental planning for revising book 3. This weekend I wrote the first scene … Plan is starting to unfold on paper. #Writing

    #EithalicaMicroblog I have one foreseeable scene to add in book 2. The whole needs re-evaluated but there’s chance then book 2 is also finished.

    Book 3 is where most remaining work lies. #Writing
