The Other Side of Darkness

The Other Side of Darkness is the title of my first book. I haven’t completed it yet, but I have a good chunk of it written in my mind. Ultimately this will be the first in a trilogy. I have yet to come up with a title for the other two books or the trilogy. The title of the trilogy will be decided upon before the first book is published.

I’ll be posting the individual chapters, as I draft them, to this blog. Keep in mind I’m a terrible editor and will mostly likely write and post hastily. I’ll post the links to all the chapters here and eventually I will try to edit and combine the whole thing. We’ll see how it goes. The first few chapters are linked below. I also have an idea for another book but one step at a time I think is the best policy here. Any comments, encouragement, or critical assessments you wish to provide will be greatly appreciated.

Chapter 1     Chapter 2     Chapter 3     Chapter 4     Chapter 5

Chapter 6     Chapter 7     Chapter 8     Chapter 9     Chapter 10

Chapter 11   Chapter 12   Chapter 13   Chapter 14   Chapter 15

Chapter 16   Chapter 17  Chapter 18   Chapter 19

  1. […] The Other Side of Darkness […]


  2. […] can wish you read something else after you read the first several chapters here: If you think his writing is bad you should look at some of his drawings as he also does a web […]


  3. Will do. I look forward to having a peek at yours. Best of luck with it.


  4. What a coincidence. My first book is due out in February 2014. I probably won’t have any spare reading time until Christmas, but I may have a look then.



    1. That’s so cool, let me know when your book is out. I don’t know if I’ll ever get this published but at least I’m getting it written. I’m up to Chapter 23 so I need to post a few more chapters. If you do indeed get the time I hope you enjoy the read.


Now that I've insulted you, tell me how you really feel...
