Author has written 9 stories for Fantasy, Action, Spiritual, Mystery, and Young Adult.

The Chronicles of Zephyr now has a Facebook Group! The group is designed to give you, the readers, more of a say in what goes into the stories, what you like, what you don't like, etc. It will also have regular updates to the story, the direction of the story, plans for the story, and all things tCoZ related (obligatory spoiler warning).

For those of you who are wondering what happened to half the stories on my page, the answer is quite simple. I deleted them. There are a few different reasons as to why each story was culled, which are basically: they weren't going anywhere (I'm compiling the poetry and releasing it as one document from now on, so it doesn't clog the page), they had spoilers for other stories I'm working on, or they've taken a backseat to what I hope will become more active updates.

I've saved a backup of all the reviews so I don't lose the valuable feedback I've received from everyone, and am gently reminding everyone that my stories almost solely rely on your feedback (be it good, bad or otherwise), and ask that you keep the reviews coming (particularly critical ones. I've hit the point where I realise there are tons of improvements I need to make, and I need unbiased views to see them clearly). In particular I'm focusing on Rise of Evil, and could use a lot of ideas for direction at the moment. I have a few loose ideas of where I want to end up, as well as a skeleton outline of the plot, but I don't have much flesh for it anymore. Otherwise, my focus relies solely on what you, the readers, want to read. I know there are a few of you that have been dying for more work on Elegy of Emptiness (the sole hurdle for me there is the writing style, which is, I'm sure, its appeal). I also have no idea where I'm going with the plot, although I will say my plans for it (without going into too much detail) were to have the old, 'classic' tale of Vincent the Vampire Hunter intertwined with a modern story of Ethan who discovers the book has more truth to it than he thought (and am hoping to utilise two different writing styles to contrast the difference), so feel free to throw any ideas my way. I can't promise I'll use them, but I can promise I'll toy with them. Ghost Ship, Nature's Bounty and Nocturne of Necromancy are both from dreams I had, so again I have the problem of too little plot to work with, so again I'm open to all ideas (for the former, I have a few plot twists and the setting will be a lot clearer when I get a few more chapters up; for the latter I have the start and the end, and I want to capitalise on the idea that zombies aren't necessarily brain-dead - think the Rage Virus from 28 Days/Weeks Later with more intelligence; and for the middle I essentially have the start, and the style of magic/imagery I want to focus on).

As for my profile itself, well, as my readers have unfortunately come to expect, I'm going to shelve this for a while and procrastinate some more.
