What is Writing To You?

Long ago when I was a boy I bought my first comic book, and seeing Conan on the cover killing his enemy started the thoughts of my best friend and I starting our own comic book.  First we had to make up characters.  Check.  Then developed our dark super hero group.  Check.  Next we made new character after new character until our number grew to around three hundred, which is pretty impressive (in our minds) for 4th graders.

Now the hard part started.  Well, the hard part for me.  I found out pretty early that although I was a decent artist, my best friend was and still is an excellent artist.  So of course putting my work up against his was a little discouraging.  He never compared his art to mine, but in the back of my head I thought the art aspect of our new adventured was to be left to him.  I went the writing route.  I put out scripted comic books and had my friend draw the scenes.  I found I actually enjoyed this more than drawing.

As the years passed, and the thought of doing just comic books faded, I decided to take my characters and put them in novel form.  I had this great idea and started taking notes and making outlines.  I finally started my first novel The Darkstone Chronicles:  The Power Within.  It felt great to finally accomplished something on that scale.  I took out story lines from the past and began to put down story lines for other novels.  I put out book II of The Darkstone Chronicles line.  I have all these stories lined up and I’m trying my hardest to get them out in the world.

Writing to me is showing the world that I live in, the universe I created in my head.  At the end of the day, I just love writing whether people read it or not.  It’s who I am, and who I will always be.

Just A Little Update

Sorry that I have been away for so long. I have worked on a few side projects and my time has been limited. My third novel, Alexander is coming along nicely. I am almost halfway through the first draft and feel very excited about my progress. I decided it was best to just work on this novel instead of working on two different ones like I was before.

My Facebook fan page is steadily growing and that’s really exciting and a little scary. I am so happy to have all my followers, but there is a small part of me that feels it’s weird that they would want to follow me, and it’s also pretty cool they do. If you would like to join my fan page, go to http://www.facebook.com/DarkEmpyrean and like my page. I post pictures, have contests, talk about books, writing, gaming, Cosplaying, comic books etc…

I am also trying to figure out new ways to market my first two books. The Darkstone Chronicles:The Power Within and The Darkstone Chronicles:Rise of the Death Lords. You can buy these books or download the Kindle version at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_13?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=the%20darkstone%20chronicles&sprefix=The+Darkstone%2Caps%2C265.

I plan on blogging, posting, writing, and just being an all around geek more often. Thank you for your interest in this blog and I hope you will come back soon.

Writing the imagination

My imagination is so crazy sometimes. I have all these stories and different worlds floating around my head. I guess that’s why I write to bring some kind of organization to the creative chaos.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being able to create characters and stories like I do but it’s so much in my head I want to write it all.

So I put my stories down and the hopes everyone else enjoys them like I do. Some do, some don’t but as long as I feel the love of writing, I will push on. I have many projects I want and will bring out for people to enjoy. I want to inspire others to go with their writing dreams, because I feel if I can do it. Well, anyone can. I have no idea how to be a blogger but I will continue to keep my followers up to date on my world. Thank you for any and all support.
