December 9th 2018 Update

The Obsidian Palace has been read my Alpha readers. Overall, the reactions to it have been extremely favorable, though there are a few points that need polish, which makes me happy. That means I’ll be starting the next stage of the editing process this week. With things there at an ebb, I’ve managed to start […]

Patreon Launched!

I’ve launched a Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/BMedrano! Some of you may remember that a while back I was considering doing a Patreon, but I really didn’t know what I could give, and also that I was quite uncertain about it. Recently that’s changed, and so have my circumstances. An author’s income is unpredictable, and it makes it […]

Musings of an Author

Maybe I’ve been a bit introspective lately, but I think this is something I’ve been thinking about for a while and I just wanted to share.

I do not have a release date just yet, but I very well might by next Sunday… which incidentally happens to be the […]

Back with Art

I was going to say this in a different order, but decided against it. I returned from the convention yesterday, and while I did enjoy my vacation, in some ways it was exhausting (and a bad mattress did not help). While there I met an artist, Taylor Fischer, who I commissioned to sketch a character that’s been […]

The Thorned Wood

So, last week I explained something about the elves of Senkar, and in the process I told everyone about the Illisyr, or the dark elves, and how they were exiled into the Thorned Wood. I’m suddenly reminded of how another author I’ve known said ‘If I’m taking you to my cottage in the forest, it’ll […]
