"A mash-up of Ready Player One, Lord of the Rings, and Indiana Jones!"

He entered the contest to win cash... 

Now millions could die.

Random gigs and ramen noodles... that's how out-of-shape gamer Terry survives the job-starved future of 2044. Until he's accepted into the Path of Relics tournament—the most anticipated virtual reality RPG event of the decade—where he has the chance to win some real loot.

But does he have a fighting chance against the world's top Active-VR athletes? Not to mention the ancient dungeons, puzzles, scorpion-wolves, and all-too-realistic NPCs the game world throws at him. And just how advanced is this "Portal Rig" that lets him physically experience the fantasy world as if he were transported there?

Worse, could his suspicions be true? Are the strange and deadly malfunctions plaguing Manhattan somehow triggered by Path of Relics? Now, outmatched and exhausted, can Terry's mysterious ability to level-up quickly and meager martial arts skills help him avert catastrophe in the real world?

You'll love this LitRPG Lite / Gamelit adventure because of its action, secrets, real-world stakes, and compelling weak-to-strong progression.

Lose yourself in a fantasy world of dead gods, lost civilizations, and forgotten lore, made possible by the advanced technology of 2044.


I'll update this section every so often so you'll know what I'm currently working on.

Jan 5th, 2023

Happy new year! I hope the excitement of 2023 is treating you well so far. This year brings big plans for me. A sequel, some short stories, and more.,.

I begin the first draft of Path of Relics Book 2 (full title to be released at a later time 😉 on Monday, 1/9/23. My deadline for finishing the first draft is 3/17/23. So hold me to that, haha. Feel free to write in and see how things are going. In fact, next week, I’ll send out another email with a special offer for you.

My plans to publish a work of flash fiction last year didn’t pan out. Notably because the online magazine I had in mind isn’t accepting submissions at the moment. So I’ll have to zig on that one and find another publication. But that’s also in the works.

Still learning the ropes of self-publishing, and I plan on improving my promotion game this year. I have some ideas of what that’ll look like (influencers, I’m looking at you), but more research is needed. I’ll be sure to keep you updated. Cheers!
