Introduction to Bound for the Styx



Greetings fellow travelers,


June is at hand and the manuscript of Bound for the Styx is done! A novel of just under 99.000 words is current at the publisher for review. Click here to check out the back flap down below.

It also happens that June 2 is my 40th birthday, so to celebrate, this week June 2 to 9, The Wrench in the Machine and The Call Girl are at A DISCOUNT on Amazon. You don't have to read Book 1 to enjoy Bound for the Styx. But the first book does include formative events in Ingraine's personality. And to put the readers of the first book at ease. Yes. Ol'Barrow does make a return, be it in a minor role. Do you want to see more of Ol'Barrow? Let me know.


Overall, May has been exhausting. Getting the manuscript done was one reason. But it also turned out how strained some of my personal relationships had become in the wake of the lockdowns. And how working from home and how publishing my work has changed my routines. It's obvious I need to make some serious changes in my lifestyle, starting with getting a roommate. Yes, I am getting a cat! Miss, Elisabeth Swan, or Lisa for short. She's a female Cheeto (related to the Bengales). Meanwhile I am looking for creative societies to broaden my horizons.


Finally, we have set up a Kickstarter in Prelaunch for our first coloring book with original art set inside of the same setting. Please give the project a follow so you won't miss a single announcement and share it with your friends!

Well, first of all. The Bound for the Styx is far from done. I'm confident it will be approved but then comes editing. New art needs to make, and finally the formating. Work on new stories has already been started.

I am considering working next on a novella-sized anthology of pulp stories continuing the tales of the Coffin Girls serving in the Imperial Penal Legion. So, expect mechas fighting alien invasions while trying to survive.


I already started work on a series of traditional pulp stories of Igraine and her doll Anwin. A little glimpse of Igraine's future life with her doll Anwin. But what is this? Anwin is dancing? What kinda dark sorcery is this? Find out here!
