So, some of you may have heard I have a new novel out! And, of course, I forgot to post about it on the website because, hey, why would I keep this crucial bit of business updated, right? Le sigh…
Now, you might think, so what? I always have a new novel out. Which is pretty much true. I write like a bat out of hell. Except, that this time I’m writing in a whole new genre. And I don’t mean just a new genre for me, but a genre that is fairly new on the scene.
What is LitRPG? It stands for “Literature Role Playing Game”. Basically, the character, or characters, are sucked into, transported, cursed, become part of the actual game they are playing. If you want to go old school then think of Tron. One second in the real world, next second in the virtual world. Or that old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon where they get transported by magic into the fantasy world they are playing in. Whatever the premise is, the point is the game becomes real!
My latest novel, EverRealm, will be part of a series of LitRPG novels, each one set in a different gaming environment- epic fantasy, cyberpunk, urban fantasy, western, Lovecraftian, space opera, etc.
So, hop on board this crazy new genre train and check out EverRealm! You will not be disappointed!
In the 23rd century, the world is at an end, and a group of gaming and programming friends decide that their only way to survive is to discard their bodies and send their minds into the quantum matrix of a virtual gaming world. They have created the Domains and there they plan to reside forever.
Except, the nightmares of reality have followed them into their new quantum dimension and those nightmares threaten to destroy it all!
Now it is up to one of them to help navigate the quantum platform known as EverRealm, a fantasy MMORPG of epic proportions, in order to complete a quest he neither wants to complete nor knows how. With the help of his friends, and a lot of luck, he will have to face trials and tribulations like he’s never faced as a player! Because now it is no longer a matter of Game Over, but of life or death!
Can he survive it all and come out a winner? The only way he’ll know is if he plays the game to the bitter end!
