Did You Just Finish a Story?

Please consider leaving a rating on Goodreads and Amazon.

As an independent author, reviews and ratings control visibility in promotions and storefronts. No matter whether you’re the first, tenth, or thousandth review, I need your feedback. Even if you just have 10-30 seconds to leave a rating, that makes a massive difference.

Additionally, if you found a typo, please get in touch with me on Goodreads or YouTube. I will fix any issues as soon as possible. If you have one of the first ~100 print copies, I’ll even send you a new book for free once I fix the typo.

What Genre Are My Stories?

Honestly, I’m less interested in genres and more interested in storytelling for its sake alone. I start with a premise, usually from a dream (CUTT, Cylinder Rock). Then I establish characters, and push each one as logically as I can. I want to use as little authorial force as possible. This leads to characters that act more fluidly than you’d expect for the types of stories I write.

Constrained Epics

I see every story as an epic; there’s so much beyond what makes it into any given book. Despite that, I aim for every book to stand alone. I’d rather offer you one 200K word book with a complete thematic arc than release three 75K word books with incomplete arcs and weak cliffhanger endings.

That’s not to say that everything I write will be huge, but strongly lean towards making each story thematically complete.

African Fantasy

There’s also a large African Fantasy aspect to my stories that will probably become clearer after CUTT. Cylinder Rock has an African Fantasy setting. There’s also a currently unnamed African Fantasy story that might get written before Cylinder Rock.

This unnamed story has a heavy focus on Action and Adventure.

Spectacle Romance

If I had to invent another genre label for CUTT and Cylinder Rock, I’d call it Spectacle Romance. You could also say I’m writing “Romantic Suspense”, but I’d rather make a Street Fighter reference.

These stories revolve around Romantic Relationships, yet they don’t cleanly fit into the “Romance” genre. CUTT uses Time Travel to explore the Romantic past, present, and future of a twenty-something man. The Romance isn’t a subplot; it’s closely related to the Murder Mystery and is a key factor in character development.

That said, the romantic element isn’t written for fans of the traditional Romance genre, which tends more towards escape fantasies. Couples aren’t guaranteed to get or stay together. Characters have both beautiful and ugly sides to them. I’m interested in romance for the tension it introduces.

What Am I Working On?

There are two novels I’m looking into after CUTT. The most likely follow up will be titled Cylinder Rock, but I also have another one in the works. I’ll post details once that’s closer to release.

My goal is to consistently write quality stories with complex plots and characters. I’m not chasing anything else; I’m here to entertain.

Where Will I Release My Stories?

As of now, CUTT is only available on Amazon Kindle. By the end of 2023, CUTT will release widely on Paperback and Hardcover. In 2024, CUTT will leave Kindle Unlimited and go wide on all popular eBook stores.

Keep in mind, this schedule may change depending on the realities of business. I’m at the starting line, so things will evolve quickly.
