So I tried taking a break after the Crimson Child launched - it's been a busy year, with not just Book 5 in the Indestructibles series, but also a sequel to Echo and the Sea and the first volume of the Dungeon Crawlers series all arriving. But sitting still has never really been my thing, so in the downtime, I got the idea of creating a Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition setting for a group of players I DM for that would be a parody of Harry Potter--a dangerous magical college set in a D&D world for players to explore, and even some useable rules for a certain game involving flying brooms.
And so what started out as a couple of ideas ended up as a 25-page campaign guide for levels 1-5 or so. Now I don't know what to do with it.
Since this, as a parody, is not something I'd ever formally publish, I wanted to share the Beta version of the campaign with you. Feel free to play it with your own D&D group, mess around with it, see if the game-within-a-game is fun. I'm open to feedback, too, if there's details you'd want to learn about the Hawksmith Academy or how Skuabdah, the flying sport, is played (or have ideas for improving it!). Download a PDF of version 1.2 below (I'll post here and on social media if an updated version is posted as well).
The Indestructibles are back and better than ever in The Crimson Child, the fifth book in the ongoing series, now available in print and ebook formats:
Since the beginning, Doc Silence has warned the Indestructibles, his team of super-powered protégés, that magical threats would be the most dangerous. The team has faced down alien invasions, time traveled to post-apocalyptic futures, and more since they first banded together, but now, for the first time, they are confronted with not one but two sources of dark and dangerous magic.
Together, Jane, Billy, Kate, Titus, and Entropy Emily will go up against an evil necromancer, warping his victims into weapons in a reckless pursuit of wealth; and an even stranger threat, a young girl with inherent mystical abilities who has become a pawn in an interdimensional power struggle. When an entire town disappears, the Indestructibles – a solar-powered girl, a boy with an alien in his mind, a ballerina vigilante, a werewolf with confidence issues, and a Whovian with a black hole where her heart should be – must band together with new allies to stop dark forces far beyond their comprehension.
This is their greatest challenge and most personal mission yet. Has all their training been enough to prepare them?
The first three Dungeon Crawlers novellas have been available in ebook format for a little while, but I know a lot of folks have been asking if they'll ever appear in print. Well as of today, you can get all three stories together in the collected edition Lost in Revery, now on Amazon. If you've been waiting for a physical copy to read the new series, now's your chance! I also adore the new cover.
More Dungeon Crawlers stories to come this summer--stay tuned!
I'm psyched to announce that the sequel to Echo and the Sea is now available: Poseidon's Scar!
Echo and her crew are back and dealing with the fallout from their actions in Atlantis at the end of Book 1. Find out what happens when they journey to Artem's birthplace, face an ancient evil rising from the bottom of the ocean, and end up with a new, mysterious companion with an evil of her own hot on her trail.
Poseidon's Scar is available in ebook and paperback formats - check it out!
Hi, everyone. Four years ago I had the surreal experience of publishing my first novel, the Indestructibles, with PFP Publishing. Four years, four Indestructibles books, two spinoff series, and a bunch of One-Shots and shorts later, the Indestructiverse has grown so much. The series recently relaunched and it felt like it was the right time for a new website. I've been living under the less euphonious indestructiblesbook.com, which was built when there was... one Indestructibles book. With the Dungeon Crawlers finding a new audience, and with a sequel to Echo and the Sea coming out in the first quarter of 2019, it felt like the right time to create a new space here under my own name.
Thanks for following the series and everything that's happened the past few years. I've got some exciting news coming up about new books, new projects, and more. I hope you'll stick around.
