Big Changes! Big News! (and a catalog break)


Between a drop in activity and a new project taking up SO much of my time, I just wanted to let you know that the catalog is being put on hold. You may have also noticed that I had to cut back on reading. I am still interested, but it's hard to find free time in the current environment, sorry.

About that project, though, I can give you some information by now. It's a new book; a book that I want to be a standalone project (meaning no prequels, sequels, etc.). If it's popular enough, I could add a little to it, but I'm trying my best  not to. It's also going to be my first attempt to get into ACTUAL publishing. I hope to put it up on Amazon Kindle or another platform, and with a pinch of luck, I may be able to get some hard copies to market locally. 

One of my main ideas, going into this project, was thinking about what I would've wanted to read when I was in school. For that reason, this book will *technically* be a kids' book, but I think you'll be able to enjoy it as an adult too. I just toned down the language and kept the harsher scenes well within a "fantasy violence" range. Good comparisons to what I mean would be the Warriors series, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, and others along those lines (I'd list more books but I spent my time reading all the weird underground stuff that no one would recognize, haha).

As for what this story is about...I'll keep most of that to myself for now, but I can tell you that it is a three-way fusion between classic fantasy, science fiction, and -a theme I've been wanting to do for a long time now- STEAMPUNK!!

Some of you may wonder what's going on with TFR, in all this. I have grand ideas and a plot in the works, but TFR is still on hiatus while I figure out the fate of the six books I already have. I would love to market them, but...well, it's a lot harder because TFR befits a very small audience (according to the people I reached out to). The wild fantasy theme speaks more to kids, yet the language issue, gore, and some "triggering" themes speaks more to adults (furthermore, adults who can stomach gore and intense themes). In other words, TFR is in a bit of a pickle right now, but there's no way I'm giving up on it. Don't worry about that!


Thanks, and happy writing! :)

Ladies and gentlemen, one and all, welcome to my profile page! I am Raven Akuma; the nerdy, metalhead, dark-minded writer. It's nice to meet 'ya all!


My role as a reader: I've been able to get back into the swing of reading! Let me at it!

My role as a writer: Yes, my writing is amateur, but my imagination is not! I'll write short stories or poems as side-projects, but the majority of my time is spent writing "The Forsaken Race" series (TFR for short).


What is "The Forsaken Race" series?

"The Forsaken Race" is an anime-stylized story, set in an original world. It primarily falls under the "high fantasy" category, but it also has elements of Tolkein fantasy, dystopian fantasy, and folklore. If you want a little snippet, you can read through my short and fun "Meet The Characters!" catalog.


Tips for reading my book(s):

1: Some minor things are always subject to change, so if you go back and notice I replaced some words in a description, please don't be surprised. The story itself is always intact.

2: I use double-spaced paragraphs to move between dreams/visions/flashbacks. I use \\\\\ to switch POV, or for dramatic time skips.

3: TFR has strong language and moderate gore (most chapters with really heavy themes are marked), so if you're a sensitive reader, beware.
