Greetings, and thank you all so much for following and reading our blog!
The stories about City-State are very special to Kaisy and me. This dystopian world is full of debauchery, sin, violence, and betrayal – and that’s just the beginning. Additionally, we LOVE feedback! Kaisy and I want to know what you think regarding our short pieces. We accept constructive feedback – positive or negative. So yes, please feel free to leave a comment concerning content, style, and plot information.
On this blog, you will see “The Novice”, one short story from our upcoming publication, an anthology of short pieces that focus on the residents and their hardships in the nation of City-State. James and I plan to publish this anthology in early 2015.
Additionally, we are working on a trilogy (which is connected to the anthology). The trilogy is entitled StarChild, and we hope that this novel set will be published in a year or two. Please enjoy the excerpt from Book One: StarChild. It is located at the top of the page adjacent to “The Novice”.

Thank you all for following and reading! If you desire, please return to the beginning of the blog (November 2013). The stories and small transition pieces are written and recorded in chronological order. If something seems “out of place”, a storyline or a specific character will transition from previous narratives.
Thanks! There is always more to come from the horrific nation of City-State!
James and Kaisy
