Writing Warriors is a Discord chat group devoted to helping writers succed and give them a place to bounce ideas and vent. It is filled with some very helpful, funny, creative, and fun people. They are always willing to help out. A lot of us are at different phases in our writing careers from in the middle of our first drafts of our first stories to post production, to post publication and learning the ropes of advertising. On top of that, they regularly run NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) like challenges and video write ins. Feel free to check us out and become a member. we always like to have more talent and to help people out!

I joined them back in May and it took me a while to break out of my shell. Now I am totally involved with writing warriors and find myself going onto the server whenever I get a chance. They are some of the most helpful people I have met and I have made some real friends on the server. I am currently in the post publication phase of the process where I worry about things like fixing mistakes that are found with published work and finding a way to advertise my work (more concerned with getting readers than cash at this point). I have published two full novels in print and ebook, a 3rd one is on the way in both formats on 10/22/17 and a free novel on smashwords.

What I like to read: It is easy to define that as anything fantasy. I find myself branching out from that as I get older. Some of my favorite works are still sci fi classics like Dune and Stranger in a Strange Land (unabridged). I also like high fantasy like the Children of Man series by Elizabeth C Mock (Still waiting for the last novel to come out!) and post apocalyptic fantasy like Alethea. My heart still lies with some hard boild science fiction like Star Trek (i am picky on those books. It has to have Q in it!) and Battletech (I own pretty much the entire original series). From there I have started branching into the non fiction world as there are some good reads in there as well, filled with as much action and adventure that you would expect to find in a fantasy novel only it is real! Most of my reading the last 4 years has been filled with technical documents as that is what you would expect with someone in the IT field so that may have colored my newfound love with non fiction novels as well.

That mix above all helps me in my own personal writing. I have two main series that I write at the moment. An urban-fantasy/dark-fantasy series under the name of Templar (3 sagas: Templar Lone Wolfe, Jena’s Blood Legacy, and Shaman Songs) and Science Fiction by the name of Ascendant. You haven’t seen any ascendant novels yet because those are my babies. I want to make sure they are perfect before releasing them to the world. the first novel is also one of the biggest novels I have ever written so I need to find a good way to pare that down before I do anything else with Ascendant. They are all based in the same universe so yes: it is possible that characters from both Templar and Ascendant can run into each other. There are some easter eggs in the books if you know where to look. You may not realize it until you get both series in your hands. There is a 3rd series in the works but I am not sure where to go with that. There is a specific easter egg in the Epilogue of Templar: Order and Chaos that points to the third series. As soon as I can find time to work on that trilogy, I will work on it and post it.

That’s all for now. I look forward to welcoming you to Writing Warriors!
