New Work


What a difference six months can make.

Speaker of Runes is a completely abandoned project. I’ll come back to it someday, but I lost the story very quickly. Just didn’t feel great about the writing.

So what has happened since?

I wrote 60,000 words of a fantasy epic. WHAT? That’s right. The working title is the Starsinger Trilogy. I’ve completed a second draft of Part 1 and I’m about halfway into a first draft of Part 2. Beta reader feedback has been INSANE and I’m extremely excited about the work.

On the side, as a way to manage my writer’s block, I’m working on a cyberpunk noire (so I call it). It’s like Sin City meets Altered Carbon. I’m really enjoying it!

Goodreads Giveaway!


If you know me,  you I’m not big on marketing and advertising. Not so helpful with a self-published book. So for the one year anniversary of Dybsy’s publish, I’m going to launch a Goodreads Giveaway! I’m legitimately curious to see what people say, for better or worse, after they read the book.
