I have published my second eBook, The Selkie. The Selkie is a short story based on Celtic myth.

In this retelling of Celtic legends, a young fisherman named Conall loses his beloved wife Mairenn to the fury of the sea. In his grief, he loses his will to live until he is rescued by a mysterious woman named Moira who appears to have come from the sea itself.

Our New Apartment

Here's my awesome desk. I believe you have my stapler...

We’ve had our new apartment for over a month. I promised I’d show off the place in my blog, even though anyone who actually cares about it has already seen it in person by now. Anyway, Here’s some photos of our awesome new apartment.

I’ve done some other stuff that was actually somewhat interesting over the the past month, such as go to an anime convention. (Read about it at 8BitBites!)
