PS: Sorry it wasn't letting people download... the podcast host had glitched out, everything was looking fine on my end. Someone should have said something. This is week 1 of 4. You don't have to start at the very beginning of every book, but you might at least want to start at the beginning of the chapter with week 1 for the recap. HIGHLIGHTED PASSAGES FROM THE PAGES OF ALISON’S FAVOURITE BOOKS Things today aren’t as they once were. There are few on Caldeen who remember a time before the great flood. A time with land aplenty, a world made up of nine unique continents connected by trade and commerce. Not just of goods, but of culture, and art, and magic. We were a prospering human society, a powerful alliance of nations that had the ability to accomplish anything and last a million years. People were happy, and not just the very richest. There was contentment throughout ALL the people of Caldeen. And from that contentment bred apathy. And through that apathy, inequality grew. Magic became a luxury for only the most powerful, and soon the powerful were even keeping their tricks from each other. Always trying to one-up one another in a rivalry that expended destructive energies, the likes of which laid waste to the land, they remained ignorant to the damage and suffering they were causing even as the rest of society collapsed around them. An hierarchy developed between the most powerful, the lesser powerful, and everyone else. The strongest began to call themselves royalty. No one knows exactly which royal was the first to make contact with the demons of the lower plane. Only that they weren’t the last, and it was this tearing of the planar veil that brought with it the violent climate change that rocked our world; bringing rising waters, and the collapse of all civilization as we knew it. Now only one landmass remains, a vast landscape with our planet’s last remaining forests and fertile land, only patches of which held up against the ravages of the end of the world. It is in those places the powerless of Caldeen hide and make their living, praying the day never comes that the higher and lower royals leave their flying nightmare city of Dunkel to cull the remaining villages. So few are left. And there are less with every rotation Caldeen makes around the sun. - excerpt from “Caldeen: A History” by Nyles (The Grass) Tyrson. --------------------------------------------------------- My name is Andrew Geczy and my brand is 99% Geek found at 99geek.ca I'm a writer, writing monthly chapters of novels like episodes of TV shows, releasing them in 4 weekly segments (a teaser and three acts) on Sundays on my Patreon page. Every month it's a different book, over a range of genres, and they sometimes even crossover and connect. At the end of the month the finished chapter is added to the PDFs attached at the bottom of every post. Finally, the finished books are self-published on Amazon. There's a Dark Fantasy story about a post-apocalyptic world where powerful royals rule and enslave the remaining peoples struggling to survive on the last remaining land mass. There's also a sci-fi story about a people on a dying world who have built a ship to a new one, but their project is almost brought down by a terrorist organization within their own ranks. Finally there's a crossover story where characters from my other books are brought into the distant future where the princess of a far advanced civilization, one that lives in a solar system sized mega-structure around a Dyson Sphere, needs help defeating her twisted power-hungry brother. And all these stories will be outside the paywall for all to enjoy as new episodes release weekly, and the finished chapters will be attached to the bottom of every post on the site in convenient PDF format readable on computers, tablets, ebook readers, and phones. But that's not all my stories. There's also Urban Fantasy tales about a teenage girl turned into a vampire against her will, or a scorned lover investigating paranormal phenomena, or a journalist covering news and politics in the Middle East. And there's a fantasy story about a fallen angel trying to stop the end of the world. All these stories are published and available on Amazon, and are also safe and sound behind the paywall in PDF format attached to an archive at the top of my Patreon page. Only viewable by subscribers, my entire library of work, thousands of pages worth, is easily accessible to every subscriber at any level. There's even a "Geekly Weekly" blog which covers all the news you may have missed over the week, as well as ranks the week's worth of television, and makes predictions on what new pop culture things might be in the public consciousness for the next week. Finally I do Video Game streams both multiplayer matchmaking as well as single player campaign playthroughs. You can see me play games like Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, Hitman, and more. And you can see it all in one place. So stay tuned, and maybe subscribe. It's only a dollar and the support you show will go a very long way, I promise. There are also higher tiers. Give 5 dollars one month and you can name a character, or location, or suggest a thing you might want to see. Basically you get to give a noun, and then I promise to incorporate that noun into one of my stories somehow. Maybe not the same month you give the suggestion, but within three months guaranteed. No matter how crazy, you can't sabotage me. I promise. Think of it like a fun improv game. And you can keep giving nouns, for every month you pay at the 5 dollar tier. Or if you give 10 dollars, you don't get two nouns, but you can give a description to go with your noun. Describe the personality of your character, or the look of your location, or the importance of your item. For 10 dollars you get a noun and a description. You can also give a dollar towards supporting my efforts at Video Game streaming, or my weekly blog if that's more where your interests lie. I'm as poor as it gets, living pay check to pay check (and sometimes starving). So I understand if you are too. I don't wanna take food out of your mouths. Your attention is enough.
