The PsyEn Project

Started out as a bit of a self-imposed writing challenge during pandemic lockdown. The original goal was 12 short stories in 12 months… but it ended up turning into 10 novellas in 12 months instead! Each of these stories were planned, written, and lightly edited in only one month. At this point, they have been through a bit more rigorous content and copy-editing and are in a bit more of a polished state… while still reflecting the journey and growth I made as a writer throughout the process. It has at this point continued beyond the scope of the original challenge and is now my primary writing project.

Each of the series – Insight, Silence & Vanity, and Witches – all take place in the world of Sol’balim, and follow different perspective characters. The world building of each story builds upon the previous story, so I highly recommend following the reading order below. The Insight books follow Reina Tethas – a supernatural detective of sorts – through adventures that are more action-horror and mystery oriented. The Silence & Vanity stories follow Iris and Amber Isolde are more action-adventure and romance oriented. The Witch stories are Magic-focused, slice-of-life dark comedies that follow A Witch Called Hushpuppy and A Chore Girl Called Nova

31 Short Stories About Witches

31 Short Stories About Witches can be read by following the link.

This was an Inktober 2023 project that ran into late November, where I decided to follow the official Inktober 2023 prompt list and use that as a guide to write about Witches for a bit too long. Each one was banged out in about an hour or two between October 1st and November 24th, and have gone through copy-editing by my illustrious and hard-working editor.

This short story anthology – ranging from 500 up through 1500 words – gives a snippet out of the lives of 31 Witches! Not only that, 28 of them are brand new! And 3 of them will be quite familiar to readers of The PsyEn Project. There is some loose connection between a few of the stories, but I in no way intend to make a joint universe out of these stories. Think of them more as a seedbed for ideas that I may eventually indulge in whenever my general compulsion to write about Witches becomes too overwhelming.

Horror Short Stories

I originally started out a writer who dabbled in writing horror. Over the last few years I haven’t done so as much, but I’m starting to get back into it, so here’s a section of the site dedicated to the various horrors I’ll be writing up!

Home is Where – CW: Infestation, Corruption, Filth, Fungus, Parasitism, Body Horror, Loss of Self

Hyperpop Apocalypse

Hyperpop Apocalypse is an as-of-yet written book concerning a candy land-like apocalypse on Earth and how we got there. It’s a Magical Girl/Ex-Magical Girl story about cooperation, choosing kindness, and rebuilding in the face of the grudges people hold for each other.

This will be more of a 2024 project, but the planning and outlining of the story is coming along quite nicely.

Stay tuned!


More information coming soon!~ 😉
