NaNoWriMo Novel!

I am very excited to announce that I will be doing an Alice in Wonderland fanfiction for National Novel Writing Month. A novel-length fanfiction? Dang right. 

Destiny’s Wonderland will be placed after the events of both of the books and into Alice’s adult life. Alice has since been sent to a psych ward, but Destiny, her daughter, soon claims that she herself has gone to Wonderland. The problem? She was never told about it beforehand. Taken from the point of view of both the maid and Destiny herself, Destiny’s Wonderland chronicles Destiny’s trip into madness… or is it?


So follow this blog to hear more about the awesomeness that will be Destiny’s Wonderland.

Even More Media!

Pretty sweet, eh? And you’ll see stories you won’t get on WordPress, like me getting a signed copy of the war novel Day of the Dead: Gaza!

So it’s all very cool and if you have an Instagram you should give a follow. For less confusion, the link is That is all.

Making Words: An Announcement

I’m doing it. I’m making a language.

At eighteen, it is probably one of the greatest undertakings of my life. It may take some time, and the language may not even be complete by the time the series is over. But I will do my best, and I will try.

Why am I making a language, you might ask? I am a writer, so really, I do whatever I want. But if you really must know the reason, it will be one of the official languages in the book. It is known only as the “Original” for now. During the era of Dark Soldier, Book 1, it is a dead language. But a few of the characters, and me, being the writer, are going to be bringing it back.

And this is where you, the fans, come in. This is going to be the first of a few collaborative projects between me and my future and growing fanbase – we are going to make the language together! You get to help construct one of the most epic languages since elvish, and it will be awesome!

Ok, so maybe it’s not quite that awesome, but it is interesting. It is a mix of a European letter-based alphabet and a Egyptian-style hieroglypic system. Basically, certain sounds are represented by different style lines and shapes, and together they create a symbol. Ideas, like movement, can also be represented. In the case of movement, it is represented by a wavy line, like in the very first letter of this system, shown below (apologies, I am no photo-manipulation master):

This is only the beginning of the “Original” system, but with your guys help, I think we can make a complex, understandable, and beautiful language. This language will feature both uvular and rolling sounds, so it’s also quite varied in its sounds that can be made.

Can’t wait to begin working with you guys on this, and seeing your ideas for how to better the language!
