Shalaeyah! Welcome to the Spine of the Empire.

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 universe.

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, random musings, and in depth posts on pieces of the world.

The World

Whenever I reference 'my world', there's a lot that's going into it that may not be apparent to those uninitiated. It is a sprawling, complicated mythos that I have developed nearly all of my life. There is more than that can be explained in a paragraph or list, but here's a taste of what my world has teeming within it:

The Series

Set in that world is The Adventures of the Trinity and the One book series and most of my short stories. The series has eight books and counting. The series is broken up into sub-sets with specific themes and arcs.

The first set is called the 'The Beginnings', with the first book of the entire series being How to Stop Wildfire. 'The Beginnings' is about the initial formation of the divine group called the Trinity and the One, and true to name, that goes on adventures. It is a series of character studies and quirky adventures of the four unique cast members. Beyond that...not going to say!

Meet the core cast:

Commissioned Portrait of Hades, God of the Ambiguously Defined Underworld!

Commissioned Portrait of Hades, God of the Ambiguously Defined Underworld!

Hades is the fourth commission I’ve done and the fifth character to be done by Reiesu. Hades was the natural next choice. In a way, Hades was probably the easiest to articulate for me. I had a strong reference and idea for pose. Which was like how I was for the Humans too, actually…is that a coincidence? I think not! Well, anyway, the results, in the end, were awesome! First WIP Hades by Reiesu WIP Great start to Hades! It...

Emerald Haze RELEASED!

Emerald Haze RELEASED!

Emerald Haze, the ninth book in the series, is done and ‘released’! It has been a long, strange journey getting here. It tested me and the characters in ways never before experienced. It was intense…very intense. But it’s over now. It is ready for consumption. I imagine there will be much discussion from Emerald Haze, and it will all be due for it. It’s a very…character driven book, despite it also existing at the ‘apex’ of a certain quest. The...
