When Clouded Instincts Mar Our Mental Health

Go with your gut. Trust your instincts. How many times in life have you done this and the results have been, well, disastrous? I wish I could count mine on two hands. If I used hands, though, I’d need more like twenty for an accurate count. Probably more. That’s how life goes. Most of the …

World-building Without Instinctive Norms In The Way

Want to know the best bit about writing fantasy (or science fantasy)? I get to break my own belief system on a regular basis, because if I don’t I end up writing entire character concepts wrong. I know, I know. If I make all of this stuff up from scratch, how can I write any …

Shadow Games of Belief and How We Self-Sabotage

Ever tried to catch a shadow? I remember as a kid seeing shadows, mine and other people’s and playing a game with them. Looking back, the best term is probably Shadow Tag. I’d try to jump on the shadow to get either the shadow or the person to stop moving. I truly believed I could …

Dragon Hoard Books: Clash of Blades…Almost

I wouldn’t stick around for this job. That’s just me, though. Shay’s done an EXCELLENT job with the illustrations, and they just keep getting better. Cass, well done not getting TOO cut up. Though I’m not convinced this thief is that skilled. If you enjoy what you’re seeing, we’d love it if you’d support us …

Dragon Hoard Books: Not Your Average Work Day

There are a couple of things you need to know about this issue: Firstly, this issue was drawn with a different art program, and one that I’ve only just begun to use, so this one may be slightly better quality, but as things go forward it’ll most likely get better!
