Now that I’m getting deeper into the sequel to my very first novel, Doguhn, I wanted to share an excerpt from the opening chapter. The prologue is titled, The Pilgrimage, and it takes us back before the events of the first novel, before we return to our protagonist and his companions for a new adventure.
I’m shaking the cobwebs off the site again, so updates should be coming soon. I hope you enjoy the excerpt, don’t forget my previous 3 novels are still available on Amazon, and as always, thanks for reading!!!
PROLOGUE: THE PILGRIMAGE
Before the gates of Excereax were discovered, opened, and ultimately sealed once more, before it was consumed until nothing but darkness remained, when the Dōguhn still slumbered, dreaming their murderous dreams, a man named Jerold Quintax set foot on this new world for the first time. Bordering on the land of the Eanigmus, Excereax was once a beautiful landscape of rolling hills, mountains, forests, and sparkling clean water; a land wholly uninhabited and void of intelligent life, or so it seemed.

Doguhn - book cover
I’m making preparations to release Dōguhn, my first novel, for sale through Create Space on Amazon, to be sold as a trade paperback and for digital download through Kindle. I can’t say with any degree of certainty when it will be ready, but I estimate the process to take approximately a month (at least). I’ll be sure to let everyone know before it’s up for sale, and I’ll include more samples for your (hopeful) enjoyment in the meantime.
Are you planning take the adventure to the Eanigmus and learn the terrible secrets it hides, or are you, as our main protagonist asks, “…just gonna stand there with half a head?”

Yes, this site has been neglected as of late. I’d like to say right up front that until I can get some of these “real-life horror” issues off my plate, posting will be a little sporadic, but I promise it’ll be far more regular once that’s all done with. I’m also painfully aware that I’m well behind getting my novels up for sale, and for that I apologize. I kindly ask those who are interested to please be patient, and I hope the wait will be worth it…speaking of which…
