I’m done with Chapter 4 and somehow back on pace. There’s still a chance at salvaging something from this trainwreck of a year. At least I can be thankful for that today. Well, that and turkey.

For anyone reading, I hope you have plenty to eat and as many guests as possible. “The right of the people peaceably to assemble” was made for days like this.

Last four days. That’s not a typo. Sleeping 16, 18, and even 20 hours a day (that one was Saturday, by the way) is not conducive to writing. Not at all.

But 2020 has already taken so much from me. It’s taken my hopes, my dreams, my uncle, my freedom, my sanity, my faith in humanity, and my best chance at living a normal, happy life. It is not going to take the streak. I don’t have much else left.

Release: The Price of Freedom (Tales of Two Worlds 6)

Here we are, nearing the end of another year. And we’ve reached the end of another set of Otherworld stories. Tales of Two Worlds concludes today with “The Price of Freedom”:

Adinia, the land of the free, the other world’s refuge for the broken. Here, there are no slaves. No man may own another. Damonte made sure of that when he founded his city of liberty. In the months since, he has learned that freedom isn’t free. It must be protected, as must the people who have taken his opportunity. His nascent nation sits in a precarious position, vulnerable to its neighbors and the elements alike. Yet freedom, he knows, is worth any price.

Of course, you know where to find my complete Otherworld collection. It’s over at my Patreon, on its usual sale price of only $3/month. Pick it up, why don’t you? It’ll help me pay for Christmas presents.

Now, this may be the end of Tales of Two Worlds, but we’re far from the finish line for the Otherworld series as a whole. In 2021, I’ll bring you Season 3 of the “main” storyline, which I’ve titled Adventures in the Otherworld. It’ll be big, I promise. So I ask only one thing from all of you.

Keep reading!

Finished off Chapter 3, and now both plots are in full effect. Add in the whole mystery angle that’s been building throughout the series, and On the Stellar Sea is shaping up to be a ride and a half. Can’t wait to get back into it tomorrow, but I’m tired now.

Sometimes, you just have to end a chapter early. That’s what I did today. It wasn’t because I was tired of writing. No, the narrative left me with the perfect ending for Chapter 2, so I took it. Amazing how I’m in the 5th book of a series, and I’m still able to provide perspective on what happened in the prologue of Innocence Reborn!
