Hello! A few weeks ago I had the honor of being featured in a blog post by Duth Olec, creator of the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos series, and was thrilled to read the kind words he’d written about Stormfallen. He had been commenting on Wattpad with critiques and helpful tips, but I hadn’t expected an entire blog post! It’s really wonderful. So thanks again, Mr. Olec. Nothing helps an author more than a shoutout and a review, whether it be a blog post or a retail site.
If you want to read what he had to say about Stormfallen: The Decrepit Forest, the link is below. Also, don’t forget to check out the fun and interesting stories of the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos. It’s a sweet blend of science fiction, fantasy, and comedy. Book 1 which is called Slubes is now available in paperback on Amazon and in ebook on Smashwords!
Below is an odd excerpt due to formatting laws which I’m unfamiliar with, but if you click the link below it will take you directly to his blog. Thanks!
Oh, hello! In less than a week the next Darmenzi chapter is up, but I’m not here to talk about me for once. I’ve recently been reading a lot (or at least several) authors and comics and such things I’ve come across on the internet. I’m still looking, too. I’ve decided that hey, just because […]

And don’t forget to check out the world of Injection on Wattpad by Nanomyte Studios!
It’s been several months since my last update and I’m sorry! I like to keep these few and far between but full of juicy details. So to get right into the thick of it, here we go:
Mystery Project: For the past few months I’ve been working on something really awesome. I didn’t want to reveal too much, too soon because I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but now that I’m finished (and because the fantastic individuals I worked with, love it), I can spill the beans!
So, there’s this multimedia company called Nanomyte Studios and they’re working really hard to bring an amazing piece of work to you all in the form of a comic called Injection. I first stumbled upon Injection while browsing new stories on Wattpad. Immediately, I was hooked. The visuals, the world, the animation. All of it simply took my breath away. So, me being super excited about the fun work these guys were creating, I messaged them to see if they’d respond. And they did!
So I’ve arrived in Atlanta and booked a room at the Marriott Perimeter Center for this year’s JordanCon! This will be my third year attending the Con, but the first time I’ve come alone. It’s strange not really knowing anyone in a new place. The uncertainty of it all can seem kind of daunting. But, I’m steeling my nerves and moving forward with my head held high. Got to try new things to meet new people!
In an attempt to get more involved, I’ve decided to volunteer. I have 3 volunteer events that I’m excited about, one of which is setting up a writing lecture for the one and only Brandon Sanderson on Sunday. Needless to say, volunteering will be a good way to meet new people and learn new things.
On another note, as of yesterday, I’ve completed the first draft of Stormfallen: The Decrepit Forest. It came out to be 50 chapters and over 90k words. I still have a ton of revision and heavy editing in my near future, but maybe 2016 will be the year of completion. It’s been a long road to completing my first novel and it’s a surreal experience. If you’d like to read the first draft, check it out on Wattpad by clicking the link on the front page of this website. Character profiles and a bonus surprise coming soon!~WM
