Fundraising Underway

My new novel, The Tear Mage, is slated to release by the end of the year. I am kicking off a fundraiser to help achieve that goal.

The Tear Mage Fundraiser

As I work on my new book, The Tear Mage, I decided to launch a fundraiser to help bring it to fruition. With the first draft complete (I finished it back in December), I have been prepping it for submission to an editor hopefully sometime in April. I have been tirelessly working on ironing out the worldbuilding in order to fine-tune the draft.

I still have a long road ahead, and many costs. Among them are the editing costs, as well as book cover (the image above is a temporary placeholder), supplemental art, and audiobook production. Of course, marketing will be a big expense as well. Check out the GoFundMe page below:

The World of Volnara

The Tear Mage is set in the World of Volnara. It is a general fantasy world filled with elves, dwarves, goblins, and the like… though I attempt to put my own little spin on the common creatures and beings and the world itself. The World Anvil Page is live, though it is rather bare-boned right now. I intend to update it over the summer, filling in many details. If anybody would like to volunteer with this endeaveor, please feel free to reach out to me at (with the subject line: WA-Volnara). I could use some help, including suggestions and input, as well as ideas and visual designs.
