Descent update and other life events

I’m approaching the midpoint in initial Descent edits, which is massively behind where I’d envisioned I would be in April. I’ve been under a lot of stress in my professional life as I looked to transition from one career to a new one. Pair that with a nasty upper respiratory infection, and you’ve got aContinue reading “Descent update and other life events”

New Release And Sale

“A kid doesn’t belong on a military base.” “Hard to say that, ma’am. Especially after what we saw last night,” Aquila responded, tone grim. “We may not all be gems, but I like to think what happened to that girl wouldn’t have happened here.” “The Promise: A Heritage Verse Story” By S.M. Wright Beginning MayContinue reading “New Release And Sale”

Into the Heritage Verse: B is for Brek

This mammalian species offers brute force to the Magistrate as one part of its elite special forces–often a collection of species with unique abilities. Breks were made infamous by their role in the Re’alle Conflict, which resulted in the utter eradication of a fringe military group on-world, with some accusations of extensive collateral damage by those residing in Re’alle’s Low Country; however, the genocide occurring on the world has led others to view forceful intervention as a necessity.

Into The Heritage Verse: A is Agoranomi

In Heritage Lost, one member of the Oneiroi’s Agoranomi–Kyros Anagnos–is introduced. The Oneiroi, who will be receiving their own entry once we reach “O,” are based loosely off Greek mythology, and so the Agoranomi also have their roots in Greece. They were namely magistrates of the market where they maintained order and policy. Among their duties, they settled disputes, examined of the quality of the articles exposed for sale, inspected weights and measures, collected harbor dues, and enforced the shipping regulations.

Meet Heritage Lost’s Cast: Mina

Mina, 16, may or may not have been named after a popular Reznic singer — she’ll never tell (think of the embarrassing band your parents adore). Truthfully, she won’t say much about her early life before she came into Katya’s orbit. Her parents are a topic strictly off the table. Having been born on theContinue reading “Meet Heritage Lost’s Cast: Mina”

Meet the ‘Heritage Lost’ Cast: Katya Cassius

Helming The Maelstrom, much of Heritage Lost is told from the perspective of Katya Cassius. A career military officer in the Res Publica De Magistratus, she has found her career stalled at the rank of captain, but at least, she’s finally received her long-dreamed-of space-faring post with her own ship. The Maelstrom may not be glamorous,Continue reading “Meet the ‘Heritage Lost’ Cast: Katya Cassius”
