A Modern Bard In Progress!

Hi readers! So I mentioned on my other blog Character Purgatory which is my author's blog and multiple other things, that I was planning on starting a blog just for stories I had written. And this is it! Here's a sneak peak of what you will see on Tales From a Modern Bard:

Short stories that I have written. One shots and the like.

Poetry on occasion.

While I don't write fan fiction (at least not to share), I might on occasion post a parody or something.

Serial Novellas, which is what you are going to see first in my Arthurian retelling The Voices Beneath that I will start posting here in December.

Everything here will also be posted on Wattpad, but I wanted to give readers without a Wattpad account a chance to also more easily view and comment on my stories.

I also hope to eventually invite guest writers to post stories on the site too, and that will make it even more fun!

Mainly I wanted a new challenge as a writer, and I decided this would be a good idea. All the stories here are free for anyone to view, and hopefully if new readers read them, they might be inclined to try buying one of my novels, but mainly I'm doing this as an experiment because I've always like the idea and the discipline behind doing weekly serials, and I think it will be a good experience for me writerly self.

All snippets and excerpts of my novels will still be posted on my other blog, along with my articles and book reviews or whatever else I usually put on there. But if you want just stories, this is where you come, and I hope everyone will enjoy what I have to offer here!

Keep an eye out for more updates!

  1. So here's an idea for either a short story or a full length novel. You know how most time-travel stories always seem to be someone traveling from modern times back, or historical times to modern day? But you never have time travel within history. For example, there's never a story of someone from 1412 traveling to 1888. And yes, you're allowed to adopt this idea and twist it how you want, if you like. I love time travel stories, but I've not the knack for them. This is a free idea I think you should take up. :)

  2. That sounds really awesome, I'm definitely going to have to file that away for later =) I'm thinking steampunk Victorian time traveling to other periods. Like a secret society or something. It could turn out really awesome. Thanks (and curse you) for the idea! :P
