A New Frontier in e-Publishing: Subscription Book


  We all love our serials? Right? But what about a novel or short story book published in serial stages? For example: Book one goes on sale with only one chapter, next week the book is updated with chapter 2, and so on, but it’s a BOOK, not a magazine. How is that possible? I’m […]

The Harsh Reality of Winter: A Game of Thrones Poem-Story


Original title: Winter I know this scenario is highly unlikely, but I love Jon Snow’s character TO DEATH and I wrote this from the bottom of my heart so enjoy (and no, it’s not racy fan fic porn). Takes place during Season 2 Episode 1, a little bit after that scene where Jon and crew […]

The Androids and the Dragons: Free for Review!


Reviewers and readers, I have released the much anticipated book of April: The Androids and the Dragons: The OS Conspiracy. There is also a print edition in the works with Del Rey (okay, I’m lying about that part).When I’m done working on the print edition (and get confirmation from my Overseer) I’ll post a giveaway […]

The Admiral’s Cicada and Other Releases


I’ve been really busy being dead. Just joking. I’ve been really busy with releasing new issues for TSODR. For those of you following Dino Macro, it’s safe to say the whole story has been uploaded to Smashwords. The cover for Androids and the Dragons kinda reminds me of

When Ponies Make You Cry: The Society On Da Run Lit Mag Issue 1


Here is the first issue of the lit mag version of TSODR. The stories are based off a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic flash animation (links are in the PDF and at the end of this video) and the last story was taken from my book (the version that I keep private). I thought […]

What Ar Tonelico Could Teach Us About Love and Earth


I’ve heard of this series called Ar Tonelico from Haruka Shimotsuki‘s music, and I know absolutely nothing about the series until I YouTubed it. I watched about 3 videos and

New Book-Novel/Short Story Blog


Every once in a while an idea strikes a man like a fish tank hitting a Shark. I had a grand moment. It was this: “Upload every individual story in The Society On Da Run and sell it on Kindle Blogs” It’s intuitive, it’s creative, it’s…it’s…magical. A few days ago I googled Short Story blog […]

Sintel the Novel: Full (The Story of Sintel and Scales)


<strong>Prologue</strong> Young Sintel was born in a small cottage on the outskirts of Ishtop. There, the forest was always green, quiet, and unforgivable. Her mother named her Sintel, which was Ishtonian for Blind Cylinder. Her father kept dragons out back. He was<!–more–> a fair-looking man, but work was steadily working on his appearence, but still […]

AYUA: African Remake of Sintel


After re-reading my Sintel novel, I saw how it lacked anything beyond it’s movie story. A week ago in a car I was listening “I Move On” from the Sintel soundtrack and I started to envision an African version of Sintel. It will be short but will follow the same plot as Sintel but…not entirely. […]

The Society On Da Run Literary Magazine


Every once in a while an idea strikes a man like pure gold hitting a big fat television. I’ve set up a Contact Me form with hardly no feedback and then it came to me: I’ve been releasing my stories in magazine format, but what I could be doing to get my name out there […]

I Wish iO9 Would Read My Space Dragons


The one website I truly adore does all sorts of things! One thing they haven’t done was blog about my space dragon poetry book. It’s not your usual dragon book, which is why the print book isn’t selling and the ebook is struggling. 400 people got it for free in the US, and that’s about […]

Imp Empress: Interracial Dragon Shifter story


The Society On Da Run ebook series is going under a revamp makeover, but I managed to get this out. How many dragon shifter stories have Interracial relationships, Italian dragon shifters, mashes technology in a medieval world and has a French bard and quality writing? None. It’s safe and free (when has my writing not […]

Go Grab It: An Explanation of The Society On Da Run/Dragons and Cicadas


Dragons & Cicadas: The Society On Da Run Just thought I’d update the old blog with a new post. If you don’t already know, the print edition of TSODR has been out for a while and I’ll be having an event for the Kindle edition on Goodreads. It’s not *just* about Dragons. When I was […]

Drachenscolderüng: A Dragon NaNoWriMo, Reaches 300 Downloads


Smashwords removed their NaNo catalogue, but my space dragon love story novel, Drachenscolderung, is still selling (with not a single review). It’s free, which means I’m not getting anything out of it. If you want to buy it and read it, feel free to contriubte to it’s download numbers. It’s not my strongest work but […]

The Siege of Rome and Other Releases


I’ve been irresponsible in updating the release list. There have been TONS of recent releases from the ebook periodical, and I’ll list them below for you to buy. Newer cover art has been added to most of the books that have that ugly black cover art. Click the titles to view the pages. You can […]

Nominate L’Poni for the Hugo Awards


It’s that time of year again! You know what I need? A hugo award. For those of you whom don’t know, a Hugo is the most prestigious Science Fiction and Fantasy award EVER. I’d love to be nominated for one. I don’t care if I don’t win it, just being nominated will make me smile. […]

Insomniac Games Announces New Project “The Society On Da Run” Game Adaptation


After the project was turned down by Bethesda (the folks that made the recent quick-selling hit Skyrim), Insomniac Games (the makers of the recent game Resistance 3 and Rachet and Clank: All 4 One) has decided to start a video game adaptation of the bestselling space dragon series, The Society On Da Run. What does […]

Dance of the Sugar Dragons: A Christmas Poem


Written entirely on my iPod. Part of the TSODR universe. —-////—-/——- Beyond the sweltering snow, Into Christmas glow But fret not, young reader! This poem is not a rhyme But a story of a dragon’s first time No, not a story about sexual exploitation Rather, a story about the sugar rush of the Sugar Dragons […]

The Society On Da Run Anime: 7 Years of Love


For seven years I’ve let anime like Haruhi Suzumiya, Code Geass, and Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni influence my art for the TSODR series. I’ve come to realize that The Society On Da Run deserves an anime (and of course, HBO or AMC (or Starz) live action series). Although the story may not seem fully […]

Carver Dan April 1st Disaster


SONG TO LISTEN TO WHEN READING THIS STORY: Ashuton and Aaron built a town called Carver Dan, and it was Ashuton’s intention to break away from his family and use the town as a hideout, but that wasn’t going to work. Only those loyal to the Empire of Antonin were granted access to the small […]

Dragon Concert Song 3: HEMorRHaGe LIF3WAY (Thomas’s Shrine Song)


Written as: HEMorRHaGe LIF3WAY This song is sung twice in the TSODR series. It is sung when Thomas sacrifices part of himself to save his shrine (France’s last hope for defense against the Crotonian spaceships) and is sung when Skyline calls the Technology Dragon to revive New York/Lindendale lake. Thomas Karrucci’s character bio: Thomas Karrucci: […]

Dragon Concert 01: EarthNations (Wishing-You-Were-Here’s Binary Song)


    Translations are under the dragon lyrics. Verses with a singer’s part in parenthesis means the singer sings with the other singer when the other singer reaches certain words. The singers NOT in bold are backup singers with distorted voices. For those whom don’t know, WiSHiinGyuw3rEheRE is a dragon-made supercomputer made for GWEN Co. […]

Wikipedia will DELETE this entry for The Society On Da Run…help save it!


I made a Wikipedia entry for The Society On Da Run and I thought it wouldn’t be deleted, but as it turns out (like always on Wikipedia), it’s being debated for Speedy Deletion. I hate those debates. I’ve had my fair share of them. You can stop Wikipedia from deleting the article by getting well-know […]

Adaora Akubilo for the role of Narcissus Karrucci


Two days ago I was reading a magazine while at checkout. I was hurting to get out of there because red day had struck. I was skimming through Black hair magazine (or was it Essence magazine?) and I saw an actress named Adaora Akubilo in an ad for Garnier Fruitics. Right then and there I […]

Print Edition of TSODR and Dragonworld ETC for 11.11.11 Day


This is reposted from the blog I made specifically for TSODR. ———————————————————————— So, I took down the chapbook from Lulu.com to rework it, and found out about the awfully strange 11.11.11 and 11.1.11 dates. Here I am thinking: chapbooks have more to tell than a Novel. So now, for once and for all, without taking […]

My thoughts on losing the Fantasy Book Review short story competition


I entered the Fantasy Book Review’s short story competition using the story Skyline and Kate Com. It was well received and they said the use of poetry and e-mails was very original. I had high

Narcissus and the Dragon Birth (updated for grammar)


Another excerpt from The Society On Da Run (yes, more space dragons), this one deals with Narcissus and the birth of Ashuton(the Dragon god)’s child. ——————————————————————————————————– The soldiers grabbed her by the arms and hauled her away. The nursemaid, Yuko Hawakada, followed along with a petrified puppy. Narcissus kept her head down as she let […]
