Long time no write! As many of you may or may not know, I started up a patreon page for my fantasy stories. Today marks the release of the very first chapter of The Purple Door District, an urban fantasy story full of parahumans, magic, and witty banter. This is set in a world created by myself and my co-author, AE Kellar. We’ve been working on this for the past 7 years or so, and we’re both excited and nervous to share it with our readers.
The main series, title pending, revolves around parahumans, such as lycans, witches, and fae, (oh my) of both the past and modern world. The stories focus on their daily lives, their government, and how the sins of the past don’t always stay buried. There will be something for everyone in this New Adult series we are hoping to launch by 2019.
The Purple Door District itself is a safe-zone for parahumans to be themselves without fear of exposure. The series of Purple Door District novellas and short stories posted on here will touch on different story arcs that are set within the world we have created, but are not necessarily connected with the main series’ story line. While the main series will be co-written by myself and AE, the novellas and short stories will be single-author unless otherwise noted.
So what is this first novella about? Here’s a little taste…
Bianca was supposed to attend art school in Chicago, not run for her life from Hunters. The only chance she has to survive is to find The Purple Door District, a safe haven for a parahuman like herself. When she stumbles upon a magus named Gladus and a fellow avian named Carlos, she thinks she’s found safety. But the Hunters are relentless, as is the dark force driving them. Vampire, werewolf, avian, magus…It’s up to the parahumans of the Purple Door District of Chicago to put their differences aside to save Bianca and stop a dark threat from destroying their peaceful community.
