I’ve been talking about writing some free short stories so I can put my work out there. I am a writer, I promise! While blogging is a great way to get words published online, my heart is for creative writing. For some time, I’ve been at war with myself over what kind of blog I should have and what type of material I want to share. If you know me personally, you probably know I’ve failed with a few different blogs.

Now, I’m trying something different. Honestly, something I wanted to do a long time ago, but had no idea how to do. And I still may be in over my head. I’m going to write short stories and put them here for free.
Now, yes, it’s true that I wrote the rough draft of an entire book in one month (thank you NaNoWriMo!), but it actually takes a lot of time to produce quality material. And these stories won’t be just any short stories.
The first stories I’ll produce will be some backstory for my book. They will still stand alone, though. But, I really want to share a glimpse of what’s to come. I hope you’ll enjoy the characters and the world before you crack open the first book of my Zolithia series.
Collectively, the short stories will be called The Penrose Archival.
I may have some other, unrelated stories that I want to share here as well. We’ll see what the future holds!
For now, please look for the first installment in The Penrose Archival called The Stronghold Heir. It will be available very soon! If you want to be among the first to receive it, head over to my contact page and send me your email address!
Best regards, my friends!
