The Spire is out now!

the spire 2

Just a short blurb announcing that I have temporarily posted my latest short story called The Spire up on Wattpad for free until December 1st.

The premise of the short story is of a memoryless man trapped atop a spire in the middle of the ocean who must cross a temporal bridge that appears every so often. The catch is that a beast awaits his arrival on the opposing side. The man must overcome his fear of the beast and discover the truth of his origin.

It’s a positive story with an empowering ending. If you like fantasy and main characters that triumph against all odds, then you’ll enjoy this quick 4-page read. Check it out now here: The Spire (Limited time only) on Wattpad.

Enjoy!

Injection: Tides of War Coming Soon!

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!

Character Profiles and Extras

Hey everyone! Malone here with the weekly update. This week has been a fun one, but mostly chill as usually. I got to watch Dragonball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ on Tuesday and it was glorious. It had almost everything I wanted from a Dragonball Z movie and more! I’m really excited for the new show to come to the US eventually. I was going to watch Fantastic Four last night at the premiere showing but then I saw those reviews (oh man were they harsh). Hopefully it’s not as bad as the critics say. We’ll see. I still have to get my butt out to see Ant-Man.

I published chapter 25 yesterday on Wattpad. It’s called ‘A Darkness Descends’ (OooOOo ominous, I know haha). But it’s not that dark. The chapter sees Jozz and Myalin making their way to the Lorrallen meeting point to set off on the Liberation. Nevesa meets someone once again in the Khraw dungeon, and some threats are issued. There are 4 or 5 more chapters left in Part 2, then the final act of the story will be underway!

Chapter 25: A Darkness Descends

Another thing, in regards to Stormfallen, I’m creating some detailed character profiles here on the website. They are a work in progress but I will add to them over time. I’m also developing a full Glossary of all the key terms brought up in the novel.

O2 Reviews applicants! I’m still looking for 3-5 people who are interested in writing reviews. If you like movies, games, television, books, or even music and would like to join the O2 team, message me! Looking forward to talking to you and helping you get your reviews read.

Thanks for tuning in this week and I hope to see you next Friday! Let me know what you think in the comments.~WM

New Chapter, New Group

Storm-Fallen is back in action! Sorry for the month-long hiatus from posting, but I’m here now and I’ll be posting once a week, most likely on Fridays. I have several things I would like to announce this week including: the latest chapter of Storm-Fallen on Wattpad, a new Facebook group for unpublished and newly-published authors, and upcoming O2 Reviews.

Chapter 24: Old Blood, New Weapon– This week’s chapter returns with Darlowe and Runa as they continue to wait for the other Liberators to show. Their current military leader, Commander Udgallus, makes an appearance as well, bringing with him a new weapon prototype for them to use against the Storm-Fallen. Here is the link to Wattpad: Chapter 24: Old Blood, New Weapon

The First Novel Group– Last week I started a closed group on Facebook called The First Novel Group. I created it for unpublished authors working on their first novel to be able to connect with others pursuing the publication of their first book. It’s also available to authors who have published their first novel and would like to promote it or give helpful information on how they went about the publication process. We currently have 23 members and gladly welcome any others interested in joining. The atmosphere is very supportive and the members actively provide answers to questions  others bring up. I look forward to seeing some new members so come join us on your journey to publication!

O2 Reviews– I’m currently working on a review for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. I saw it Thursday night in IMAX and it was every bit the adventure the trailer teased it would be. The stunts blew my mind, but more on that in the review. I’m also looking for several people who are interested in writing reviews in order to get more O2 Reviews out there. It won’t be for money, but for the experience and networking. If you like video games, movies, tv shows, or books and would like to write reviews, send me a message. Thanks!

Well, that’s about it for this week. Talk to you all soon, or next Friday at the latest! Hope you like the newest chapter and let me know what you think in the comments.

#ChallengeTheProud Contest

Hey there! So many of you know I use Wattpad regularly to publish my stories and connect with readers and other writers. I believe it is an invaluable resource and I’m thrilled to have discovered it when I did. Because of the social media aspect of the app/website I’ve found it to be much more encouraging to write, as readers have motivated me to stay accountable and continue releasing chapters weekly in hopes of entertaining them. One of these readers I’ve come to know and respect is actually a fellow writer named Julia Proud.

Julia was one of the first people I’d never met in person to give my story a chance. She gave me valuable feedback and genuine encouragement during the beginning stages of my story’s development. I can’t thank her enough for all the kind words and helpful tips she’s given me so far. She’s also a very talented writer whose works I’ve come to enjoy, and I’m impressed at her dedication to the craft. She’s developed quite a following in her #ChallengeTheProud events on twitter in which followers can present a particular prompt (challenge) and she must write a short story based on the prompt/challenge.

A few days ago she unveiled a new website dedicated to the challenge event called http://challengetheproud.com. On this website you can view the 30 short stories she’s developed from the contest and vote on your favorite one. This is the coolest part in my opinion: the one with the most votes becomes a full length novel. The voters even get a free copy of the final edition. That’s great! I love this idea.

If you’d like to participate in the event head on over to her website and check out the process. Don’t forget to subscribe with your email and cast your vote on the story you’d like to see become a full novel. Deadline is June 30th!!! If you’d like to know more about Julia or would like to see more of her work here are some links below:

The website is here!!

Lots of stuff to talk about, so little time! I’m going to try and keep this short.

1) Got the new website up and running for Storm-Fallen news and updates. This will allow me to promote the story more effectively and connect with readers from multiple media platforms.

2) I’m currently revising the published chapters on Wattpad for reasons I shall disclose in the coming months. Don’t worry, I’m still going to publish new chapters weekly! Chapter 22 will release this week.

3) I’m working on my very own entertainment review system. A lot of times reviews can be misleading and/or vague. With O2 Reviews I want to have a dynamic dual rating system that ranks it within its Genre and its Medium. Ex. Friday the 13th and The Walking Dead are both Horror but will also be rated in their respective Mediums as one is a Movie and the other is a Show. It will definitely need some tweaking so if you have any ideas, or want to contribute, feel free to contact me.

And that’s about it for this update. Thanks for reading! I hope you like the website and look out for more content as I post. You can get email alerts if you sign up for them in the menu section.~WM
