ABOUT THIS BLOG

I suppose it is apt that I open the “About” section by explaining why I created Coffee with Architects of Worlds Afar. Yes. That seems as good a starting point as any. Alright, here it goes…

In 2015 — right after graduating from college — I undertook one of the most exciting challenges known to humankind: I set out to write a book. That’s right. A book. The novel that I wanted to write was one which had been bouncing around in my head since my senior year in high school, so — needless to say — I was ecstatic to pen it. Long story short, with bated breath and a heart brimming with delight, I published Capering on Glass Bridges on 21 August 2015. It was one of the most exhilarating and terrifying moments of my life. I felt a sense of pride at having accomplished such a huge goal of mine, yet I was also nervous to see how my novel would be received. The days succeeding the publication of Capering on Glass Bridges found me glued to my laptop, constantly checking to see if anyone was purchasing my book. It was during said time that a disconcerting truth struck me: I was treading water. A sea consisting of millions of other writers (each vying for the attention of readers) surrounded me. How was I to stand out? How was I to make my voice heard? How I was I to let others know that my book existed?

*Cue Coffee with Architects of Worlds Afar*

This blog was born in the winter of 2015 in an attempt to procure a solution to the problems arising from being an unknown — or undiscovered, if you will — author. It was my hope that Coffee with Architects of Worlds Afar would help–even if only slightly so — in bridging the gap between writers and readers. I initially decided to have my interviews take the form of videos for one simple reason: videos are fun to watch! 🙂

ABOUT CAPERING ON GLASS BRIDGES (THE HAWK OF STONE DUOLOGY, BOOK 1)

capering_front

BLURB

The Utdrendans have spoken, and everything has changed as a consequence. People normally avoid the fog surrounding the cursed Kingdom of Mar, but now they are asking sixteen-year-old Kaia Stone to venture into it. The Utdrendans implied that there is something special about Kaia. They claimed that she could help free the land; she need only carry out their instructions and deliver a message to the Marian king.

Mar, however, is a land in which dark secrets abound, and many will stop at nothing to ensure that it remains forever cursed. Determined to work against Kaia, unfriendly forces have already begun to gather.

Will Kaia choose to abandon the only life she’s ever known — perhaps indefinitely — in pursuit of the greater good…in pursuit of her purpose?

ABOUT THE YESTERDAYS OF TOMORROW (THE HAWK OF STONE DUOLOGY, BOOK 2)

BLURB

It’s been a year since Kaia’s first encounter with the turned ones. Every day since then has been fraught with uncertainty. Most in the Kingdom of Mar prepare for a life wherein they will be free. Kaia, however, knows that even if the curse should be lifted, the Marian people will not be unburdened in the near future. King Sol promised them a war with Darlbent, and a war they shall have if the fog dissipates. Swords have already been thrust into the hands of every man in the kingdom, filling Kaia and her friends with trepidation. Things have changed in Mar, and Kaia worries that it is only a matter of time before some blades are turned against them.

The moment of truth is approaching. Soon, it will be known whether or not the curse was meant to have an end. If it wasn’t, can Kaia and the others learn to make lives for themselves in a forsaken land like Mar? Will they ever truly know safety there?

To further complicate matters, Kaia has Ruelena to contend with…
