Hi I’m Sam and I’m a recent escapee from the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). I am a goof who pretends to be driven and organized. Currently my sister :iconinprismed: and I are working on seven major projects:

The first project is my nine book science fantasy series: Nothing but Glory:

“Everyone has a reason to die. It is history that determines if it was worth dying for.”-Kingsley Montivelo.
Everyone in my book has a reason to die and the Nothing but Glory series follows thirteen leaders and what they fight and die for. The series starts with the thirteen leaders rising to power, how they handle a world war that is catastrophic in scope, and watches as some are overtaken by their sins-both intentional and unintentional-and some rise to lead a stronger, but dying world into an uncertain future.

My second project is a companion book to the Nothing but Glory series: Hurrah for the Next Killer Who Dies: Selected memories of a Revolutionary:

Killers never forget, they never forgive, and they never apologize, but sometimes they explain.
This is Kingsley Montivelo's memoirs on his time as a member of the Killer Liberation Army (KLA). It starts with the moment he decides to be a KLA member and ends with Siegfried's Day, a tragic and history making day that no one in Terra ever forgets.

My third project is a collection of short stories that lay the groundwork for my series that has been published on Kindle. These stories follow the rise of Timothy Murphy (my world’s pope) and Ethan Hertz (a Druid king), David Farin (a Shadow Prince), Hugo Urbs (a fierce warrior), and Robert Phillips and Henry Banks, two humans struggling to find their place in a world dominated by fantastical creatures. These stories are published on Kindle and are support with historical information and illustrations drawn by my sister :iconinprismed:. They can found here: [link]

My fourth project is Heroes: a dystopian novel about Singularity gone wrong.

“We offer you Peace, Security, and Prosperity. We ask for your Privacy and your Obedience.”-Turing
Heroes is a world where there is no death, no war, no disease, and no crime. It is a perfect world as long as everyone follows the rules and does not mind being observed by the four guardians at all times. There is a small movement known as the Time Keepers who are desperately fighting the Guardians and bringing freedom back to the world.

My fifth project is Stairway to Heaven and is about a former druggie and asshole who decides to help struggling teens because he needs community service hours.

My sixth project is an angel and demon story which is about an angel and demon...yeah that one needs more work before I even know what it's about.

My seventh and final project is Dangerously Delusional. It is a comic about super heroes and super villains who have no idea what the hell they’re doing.

So people keep telling me my trilogy turned series is too big. It’s too much to take in and it’s hard to sell because it doesn’t have a single focus point. I’ve taken their words into consideration and I have come to the conclusion they’re right. I thought I fixed this problem by creating a ‘Hobbit’ book, basically a book that takes place before the actual series and that would be a good introduction into my world, but I’ve realized that the information required to make series easier to understand is too much for one book. I read somewhere that, if you keep bringing up background information in the middle of the book for the story to progress then you haven’t found the true beginning yet. So, that’s why I’m determined to write the Hobbit book, but instead of being one book, it’s going to be many books. I’m going to marvelize my story.

What does this mean? Well, think about your Marvel comics. They didn’t start off with Avengers, instead they started with individual comics, you know Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and Hulk all had their own established comics before coming together to make the Avengers and Marvel made their movies the same way. Well that’s what I’m thinking of doing. Each set of characters is going to have its own individual books first which will end on a cliff hanger that leads to the first book of the actual series (or the first Avengers comic if you’re still using the Marvel analogy). How will people know they’re part of one huge series? Every book with have its own subtitle, but the main title would be the Nothing but Glory series and I would probably end every book with: the story will be continued in ‘blah blah book’ which will prompt the reader to continue onto the next book in the series. For example: Kingsley’s story will return in Shadow book, but to learn more about his world, read the Ignis War book. Or something more compelling. XD

It would look a little like this (and no these are not the titles of the books. I don’t have the titles yet XD):

Kingsley’s story-I would start with this one because it’s already halfway written. XD I will have to change the ending a little, but I think it’s a good introduction to a small part of my world and Kingsley is the first person approached by the Shadows, so it makes sense.

Ignis War-I would probably write this next (although it isn’t really developed) because it is mention in the Kingsley story, chronologically it makes sense, and it introduces a lot of characters that will be important later on. It also helps set up the political order of the world.

Black Forest War-And then I’d have to follow it up by the Black Forest War to continue the journeys of the characters introduced in the Ignis war book and introduce the Felines and the Sividons. This also makes sense chronologically and Emmy (the Feline Queen) is the second person approached by the Shadows, so again it makes sense.

Gargoyle book-I think I’m going to have to give the Gargoyles their own book, simply because I don’t want to shoehorn them into the Black Forest War. If the Black Forest book isn’t too long, I might add the Gargoyles in there, but I don’t want to overcrowd the book.

Druids and Demons book-Then I would probably write this book next. Thankfully it’s already partially written. This decision doesn’t make as much sense chronologically (because a lot of things that happen in this book technically take place before anything that occurs in the previous books) but I think logically, this book works after I’ve already laid the groundwork with the other stories. Also a lot of issues brought up in the previous books are still important, but they’re not as active. The issues brought up in this book are HUGE and have a HUGE impact on the plot in the series. Also the Demons are the last ones approached by the Shadows, so again it makes sense.

The Koren and Lupus book-I actually don’t know when I should write this book. I think it fits here because again the issues are more relevant to the plot and it doesn’t really fit anywhere else.

The Ferdarian/Shivian book-Again this one is already partially written and lays the groundwork for a lot of characters and sets the playing field for what the ‘good’ side is going to look like once the series actually starts.

The Shadow book-last by not least, the Shadow book. This is the most important book and, even though chronologically it doesn’t make much sense to write it last, I think it works best as the last book before the actually series takes place. See the Shadows start everything and I can have the book end with Kingsley, Emmy, and the Demons meeting with the Shadows, form the Legion of Doom (the marvel universe really doesn’t have a legion of doom equivalent do they? The sinister six maybe?), have a mwahahaha meeting while planning world domination, and boom! There’s your cliff-hanger ending that leads directly into the first book of the series.  

Then you’d have the first book of the series, etc.

Soooo that’s what I’m thinking. I’ll probably change my mind two days from now, but for now this is ze plan…..God help me. XD
