Shalaeyah means 'hello' in Tyra Tarkush. Tyra Tarkush is the 'first' language in the world of my book series. 'The Spine of the Empire', in that same world, is the communication network of the Empire, the organization and government of the races in the univers.
In this world, it is the website concerning all things related to my main book series, the Adventures of the Trinity and the One, and its world. Here you can find updates on the series and in depth posts on pieces of the world, Carathoukiea. Not only that, you can find my short stories and other written work.
The best way to get into my world and my work is to read it in release order (instead of chronological order). This means starting with How to Stop Wildfire and then continuing with the rest of the series. You can read all my books for free by joining my Patreon.
The character artwork below was commissioned from various artists to bring the characters of my series to life.
The book series, its world, the characters, all of it, are things that I have developed over the course of my entire-thinking life. I love weaving narratives together, breathing life into these characters, and building this world up. This is the enduring passion of my life that has neither a clear beginning nor an end in sight.

As I indicated in my previous Wonderdraft post, I planned on continuing to make maps. And so I have. I’ve made maps for two more cities featured in my books: Waseth of Magaya and Karawu of Wolfen.
I've begun to make region maps using Wonderdraft. I started with Varpesh, which I was pleased with, and then did Shizar, which I was less pleased with. I'm excited to keep trying it out.
No art was done in June, and I only did one piece in July, so I combined July and August for this post. All the art done was for Jurak’s Day.
I collaborated with Aeris Total to write Serpents, Snakes and Chalices. Then Aeris Total had a story prompt I ran with and from it I wrote Gurgle and Hiss, which is related to the story we worked on together. Both are in their own strange world that is not at all related to my main world writing. They were both fun to write and I expect more will come out of this collaborative world. Hope you enjoy reading them!
