I used to be in the NovaVita guild on Chronos but stopped playing at the end of 2013. I play occasionally and only with clannies.

GIMP related stuff

Mirror Painting

People whose stuff I like and cheerfully plug: Sci-Fi stories with traditional, beautifully water-color painted illustrations; set in completely engrossing worlds. Beautiful and intricate steampunk jewelry, and some Jewish cultural items as well.

Some news - I know, it's been a while, but I'm told these things take time to get a permalink.  Note: Waiting now only for the Amazon link!

EDITED TO ADD: Sparrowind is now available on iBookstore / iTunes AND Nook!

After banging my head against the joys of Lulu ebook publishing I got my first solo ebook out - my short story / mini novella is available on Lulu purchase at present and will be available over time on Amazon, iBook and Nook. Links will be provided as they become available.

Sparrowind: The Dragon Who Lived As A Knight

iBooks/iTunes  Lulu Direct and Nook

Tiny Sparrowind can't hunt from the sky, cannot hope to best his siblings in contests of strength, and scrapes by to survive. But in the books stashed in his parents' hoard of gold and gems he finds a greater treasure: ideals.

Deciding to make his own way in life gives him more hope than he could have if he tried living only by the way of Dragonkind, but can this dreamer of a Dragon find his place in the world?

ETA 20-09-14: The OtherMcCain has a review of Sparrowind up! Thank you, and I am so happy you enjoyed it! :wai:

Also, the United Fleet ebook and the first Seda's Diary novellas are available on iBooks, Nook and Lulu Direct! (Amazon link will be up when I get the permalink. It takes time, I'm told. Sorry, but it's something out of our control.)

United Fleet 1: iBook/iTunes   Lulu  // Nook

Seda's Diary 1:   iBook/iTunes  //  Lulu  // Nook


Seda's Diary II: Outcast is currently being reformatted for ebook release. It's taking more time than I'd like, but Real Life™ has been far more hectic and time consuming than it really ought to be. :work:

I've a couple of other F.M.L. doodlestrips lined up for drawing, but I'm spacing them out between doing cover art and editing books / writing books. Avoiding burnout in the long run, y'know.

How to read EPUB books on Kindle: Lulu has helpful instructions. Scroll down to see them at the link. As I don't have Kindle myself, I am afraid I don't know how that works. ^^;

I've been hearing that Calibre is a great way to convert ePub books to any other ebook format. Or vice versa. Or use as a ebook reader and manager on your PC. It's completely for free and available for use on Mac, Windows and Linux! (For Linux users you may need to search via your native app manager or sudo apt get. As I am not familiar with ALL the ways to do this on all distros... uh... sorry for my cluelessness.)
