July 2021 Updates (Writing)

By Eugena On July 24th, 2021

Readers out there may be happy to know I am going to return to my writing endeavors. I put off a lot of it (not just social media and website or blog updates) due to that unwanted attention I have mentioned before. Other things interfered as well, but that is not something I am going to say in public. No, I wouldn’t call those other things nefarious or such.

Well, no more. No more what? Let me say this in a whole sentence:

No longer will I permit the unwanted attention to get in the way of me living my life. Those person(s) know exactly who you are, and you will get no warnings from me. Not that, in some cases, the warnings have meant anything.

I am not tolerating it any more. I have already metaphorically put my foot down here. I wanted to say this more publicly on my blog here. No longer will any of these people get in my way. Whine all you want, I dare you to send me instant messages, emails, etc.

I will take appropriate action.

Thanks for listening readers. Now for the exciting part.

I am considering entering an important competition. Unfortunately, some of my planning files are missing, so I will have to recreate much of it.

You may notice I have started referring to The Age of Merrik as The Age of Merrik & The Sword Masters. The Age of Merrik is the series featuring Merrik during his time as ruler, while The Sword Masters refers to the written universe as a whole. Dark Desires occurs under the “umbrella” The Sword Masters. I’ve done a lot of backstory on Eleya and the Sword Masters. I am working on Rise of the New Masters and Book 3 at the same time. I have the cut off point between them, but have not yet decided on which book some of the secondary scenes will appear in.

I once planned a game, Shattered Sky, based on The Anointing. That was with RPG Maker Ace software. I later worked one planning a different story with RPG Maker MV software. This second game focused on a new sword master, Talissa. It occurred before The Age of Merrik. Yet none of my planning has gone to waste. I planned for a character from Rise of the New Masters to appear in the game. Now Talissa and another character from the game will appear in Rise of the New Masters along with that other character.

Merry December 2014

By Eugena On December 16th, 2014

Hi everyone.  I hope you all are having a fun-filled and safe holiday season.  Last month was National Novel Writing Month, and I didn’t get my goal of 50,000 words, but I did get over half.  I’m pleased to say that The Age of Merrik: The Anointing sequel, Rise of the New Masters, should be finished by the end of the year.  Then I anticipate some time for edits and later publication.  Considering the large amount of material I have already written for it, I will be breaking my draft of Rise of the New Masters into Rise of the New Masters and (I don’t feel like sharing the title quite yet, SPOILERS) book number 3.

I look forward to a prosperous 2015, filled with (among other great things) more books.  Merrik Moulton and I would like to wish you and yours a very Merry, fun, and safe holiday season.

Mirrors: Brianna and Liana

By Eugena On November 3rd, 2008

What’s next with Brianna?

I haven’t really decided what to do with her. In the previous version, I knew how she would show up again, but now, I am considering other ideas.

I had Brianna and Liana as reflections of each other. They were essentially the same, just on different sides of the battle. One difference . . .


Who is worse, Liana or Brianna?

Explanation: The Vow

By Eugena On October 20th, 2008

What is the vow?

The vow is more thoroughly explained in Rise of the New Masters.

Here is a brief section about it:

A kiss is a vow. Outside of one’s family, a person does not kiss another unless that person is vowed to the other. After the dragons died out at the end of the Dragon Era, sword masters and wizards alike had difficulty in controlling leaking of their magical powers. They learned to concentrate the distribution of their magic power through their lips—whether in words or in a kiss.
