((I’m posting this story here as a free sample of my writing, and I hope you’ll be impressed enough to click on the link to my original novels. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* Like, this one: Sorcerer’s Vendetta.
Really, I just enjoy this character and his story, so even though I’ll never make a dime writing about him, I can’t quite let go of him!
Update: Now that Amazon has come out with Kindle Worlds, there’s the possibility of PUBLISHING FAN FICTION! If SOE, the creator of Everquest II and the world of Norrath, licenses to Amazon… *crosses fingers*
This is free because it’s a work of fan fiction, based in the world of Norrath, in Everquest II. Most people write about their characters in journal form, but I wanted to write in third person, my strong suit, so I came up with a different way to cover Rakhanar’s ramblings. Rakhanar starts off this story unable to read and write, so someone else has to be his scribe.
Feel free to connect with these characters if you should happen to run across them in the realms. You might just find yourself in one of the stories here! I’ll send you a copy first to get your stamp of approval — no nasty surprises in public, no worries!
If you find this format a little difficult to navigate, here’s a link to get you straight to the first chapter: “1 – Flight from Faydwer”
To get back on your own, click on the February 2013 Archive. It will open to the LAST post I made in that month, so SCROLL DOWN until you see “1- Flight from Faydwer” Click on that TITLE. That will start you at the beginning, and when you get to the end, you’ll see a red navigation title for the 2nd post. Enjoy! ))
You find this novel in a nook in one of your favorite taverns. Having heard good things about this author and his works, you open it and begin to read:
Author’s Note: I met this young man in New Halas and immediately saw his potential as the subject of an epic adventure. With my wizardly powers, I can watch him unseen, from the shadows, and scry into his surface thoughts. This makes for quite an interesting viewpoint! Don’t tell HIM that, though…
This is not the real beginning to Rakhanar’s story, but what I picked up from his memories is a little more private. I may be enticed to share, however. With the right motivation. Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in seeing a little more “in-depth” story…
So, without further ado… Enjoy!
