"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.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW

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

Oct 24th, 2022

Currently in the brainstorming phase of Path of Relics 2. Working through worldbuilding as well as plot, character arcs, motivations, etc. All heading toward an outline that will help me sketch in what happens chapter to chapter. 

That's a bit simplified, but once that process is done, I can move on to the rough draft. This will be weeks of furious writing so I can get to the end of draft 1. 

That's when I get to my favorite part, revision. It's usually easier for me to work through something that's already in front of me but flawed, rather than creating from scratch. Both are necessary, but I feel less resistance to revision.

I also aim to publish a short story or two before the end of the year. I'll let you know the results.
