What do you write in a bio when you have no accomplishments?
Christopher is a fiction novelist who writes in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genre.
Like anyone who tries to better themselves, you often create expectations that you can never live up to. But one of these days, the author has to overcome these feelings of inadequacy and publish one of his many unfinished stories.
The short story/novelette/novel “Colony Sane” will be his moment of truth, for the iterations of his story has been many. Once a short story, now a novelette, and (maybe) in the future, a novel. Reworked and edited until the original idea almost bare no resemblance to the new.
When this story is done, work on the “Book of Legacy” series will resume and the great magnum opus of the author will be presented to the world.
If you want to know more, the Book of Legacy series is heavily inspired by Lord of the Rings Trilogy in terms of a group of people journeying through the land to end all evil. But instead of sticking to this fantasy trope, the main character has to question if the world is in danger at all. In doing so, he has to question the purpose of his journey and ask why he braves the world’s many dangers and risks the lives of his friends, if not, for no other reason, than to satisfy his own curiosity.
Bones are that which keeps you here
Turn to dust and your soul will yield
Forgive this old fool
For the mistakes he’ve made
Leave me be and let the past fade
Fire rained over our heads
fume from the rocks seethed out of the ocean
Everything is quiet now
Except the gulls who shrieked and shuffled happily
Their meals now properly boiled
The clouds are bustling
The night blast rustling,
Sighs are breaking
From Grave-hills quaking,
The regions were under
Of the mighty and the daring,
The ghosts there muster
Stains of war bearing,
In their eye star luster.
Ye who blind are straying,
Shall an ag’d relic meet,
Which shall come and shall fleet,
Its red sides golden,
The stamp displaying
Of the time most olden
That shall give ye a notion
To hold in devotion
Our gift, is your duty!
A maiden, of beauty
Shall find the token!
