The Era of the Scourge.

In a time long forgotten, when the Earth was called the Third World and the many nations were united as the single land mass known as Panagaea, our world enjoyed a thriving renaissance.

Then, the Scourge arrived.
For the longest time, no one knew where they came from, but their intentions were ruthlessly clear; the extinction of all intelligent life on the Third World. Man, elf, forge, centaur, and all denizens of Panagaea suddenly found themselves marked for extinction.

Forerunners of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Scourge ruled the Third World with genocidal tyranny, exterminating millions of creatures over a period of approximately two centuries until the remnants of the Third World banded together and, aided by the unlikeliest of allies, drove them from our world.

At the beginning of their reign, some were spared to enforce the rule of their masters. These enforcers were strong, merciless, and willing to execute the will of the Scourge at a moment's notice.

Malakai, a terran battle champion, was the foremost of these enforcers.

Favored by Nero, the avatar of War and ruler of the Third World, Malakai enjoyed unmatched power and privilege as he served his master faithfully. But one terrible misdeed costs Malakai everything and Nero takes that which is most precious to him.

Anann, a young angel studying to be a goddess of love, takes pity on Malakai and journeys from Heaven to the Third World in his time of need. She offers him the power to reclaim what is lost, along with her assistance, having no idea of the struggles of the Third World or the lengths Malakai is willing to go to strike back at Nero.

The Angel seeks reunification, the man seeks revenge. Both will embark on the most perilous of journeys where they will be challenged not just by those corrupted by Nero but their own conceptions of right and wrong. For there are no greater forces in this universe than love, hatred, and a need for vengeance. Can an Angel who has never known conflict and a man who has known nothing but overcome their differences to take back what was lost?

Era of the Scourge: Reclamation, a Universal Warrior tale, will drop as an ebook exclusively for Amazon Kindle on November 27th, 2015. A paperback will follow shortly thereafter.

This story serves as one of two preludes for the upcoming Era of the Scourge Book 2: Warblooded, which will drop next year.

The Long Road Home

I will end you tonight. No, wait. That's not where the story starts. The story starts two and a half years before this, when Michelle (referred to as Michelle for legal reasons because SATAN was too heavily trademarked) reached out to me by Facebook. She mentioned that we played the same Facebook game and she wanted to say hi. I had never, in fact, even heard of the Facebook game. But I was freshly broken out of a relationship and she was pretty with a good body so I said "Hurr, okay." Conversation ensues. She tells me we came up in the same place. We did not come up in the same place. We spent one night in San Francisco talking. But I really wanted to sleep with her. So, "Hurr, okay." Fast forward a few months. I've left Missouri for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I've settled into the ass end of Lynnwood, a suburb of Seattle. The apartment was so bad that the landlord wrote the mold on the wall off as "crayon coloring

America: A True Story About Hatred and Unity

I wanted fast food tonight. That was all. I found myself at Burger King to pick up my wife's order. I was a few cars deep when I spotted the Confederate flag. I surreptitiously snapped a few photos. This was going to be a very different story. When I pull out of Burger King, it turns out there's more than one. In fact, there are four trucks, each flying variations of the flag. I have to go around the front of them to avoid an accident. They're parked right in the middle of the road. As I drive around them, each person in the vehicle makes it a point to ensure I see them. I do. They see me too. When I get to McDonald's (which is in the same lot), I learn that they're not taking debit cards at the moment. Terrific. I wanted chicken nuggets and instead, I get a run-in with the new Confederacy. So I make my way back to Burger King, again appearing in full view of the trucks. I place my order, get it, pay, and pull out. Then one of the

Wave Rocketbook Reviewed

I love writing by hand, and I love notebooks. I'll often devote entire budgets to them and when Officemax has one of their twenty-five cent sales, I'll buy them out. I often draft by hand, finding that the scene comes together more purely when it flows from a pen rather than a keyboard. So when DailyDot advertised a durable new type of notebook that you could use over and over again for the cheap price of twenty-five (thirty after shipping) US Dollars? I'm down. The Wave Rocketbook is meant to be elegant in its design and simple in its execution. The instructions come on the bag itself, and only the pen and notebook are included. The pen feels like any other, so you have to be careful not to mix it into your collection or you will end up marking your notebook with the wrong pen (like I did). The ink is erasable, which is a bonus. A place to put the pen would've been nice, but it clips easily, if not securely, into the ringed binding. The paper is thick and
