The Summoned Series

Now that I have the site up (to some degree) and have published part 3 of Summoned, I guess it's time to put some actual information here.

I started writing the Summoned series as a fun project exploring some aspects of the "isekai" genre that I haven't seen addressed in any other works, such as the gender swap, language barriers, and the general confusion that would result from bringing people into a fantasy world.  That doesn't mean that those things haven't been done before, just that I've never seen them.  It's a big genre, dating back at least to 1889 and Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

The first-person, limited POV allows the reader to explore the world of Geamhlurt along with the narrator, and lets me use a more informal language and tone than I usually would in a work of fiction.  That makes it fun to write and (hopefully) fun and easy to read, but editing is still a pain, and the only thing that really slows down my publishing.  I had nearly 100K words written when I decided to start publishing, and I want to get all of that (parts 1-6) online as soon as possible, but I also want to keep writing, and to release parts on a fairly regular schedule.  Balancing all of that with a full-time job and family will be a challenge. 

On top of all that, I have another fantasy series that I started before Summoned which is much more structured, planned-out, and formal, and I need to keep working on that, also.  So I guess what I'm getting at is this: please keep reading and telling people about Summoned, and feel free to leave feedback here.  It will help keep me motivated.
