• The Origins Files (Insomnia Saga #3.5)

The Origins Files contains a short story and a novella, told from the perspectives of Alain Somnus—the first Summoner of Light to ever rise—, Orion Fleming—the founder of the Night Angel Cult—, Frank Miller—a young man struggling to find his place in the world, no matter how much it has changed with the arrival of the Prowlers of Night—, and Eleanora Smith—who moves through the night like a thief and dreams of vengeance.

“The Night Angels will have their revenge.
And you will meet the destiny you deserve, Summoner of Light.”

In File #1 Orion Fleming remembers when he first met Nilisa Solovey, a wealthy girl who never should have had eyes for a poor boy like him, and yet fell in love with. Now the mother of his child, she has offered herself to be the Queen’s human host… but is Orion prepared to sacrifice the love of his life—or will desperation and heartache cause him to reach out to the world’s strongest Summoner, Alain Somnus… and betray the Night Angels?

The story of love and betrayal, secrets and guilt continues in File #2 as Alain finds out that Nilisa has given her body to the Queen of the Prowlers of Night, and he decides to step in as the savior the people believe him to be—though not without the help of Frank and his other friends, while having to deal with a young woman called El who knows more than she should.
His secret is on the verge of being exposed.
And the greatest battle he has ever fought is awaiting him, long-limbed and dark as night… and disguised as a girl of shadows.

 


 

The writing experience of each of these Insomnia Saga short story collections is a special thing for me. It’s actually quite different from the tales I usually write, as the history of this series isn’t a happy one, and so it forces me to explore darker themes and settle for sad endings, rather than the (bitter)sweet ones I tend to choose — simply because that makes me feel good.

Just as was the case with the previous two collections, The Origins Files was once again interesting to write, and maybe even a little challenging, because it was so sinister and sorrowful. Still, I really enjoyed myself, and in some cases I believe it’s fine to step out of your comfort zone for a bit.

The cast of this series is ever growing, and I hope you all feel just as connected to the new voices of Orion and El as I do. Please enjoy reading this latest installment to the series ❤️

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga 2.5)

First, the Nightprowlers brought them together.
Then, they divided them forever.

 

Hi there, Sleepwalkers! Today we’re celebrating the official release of The Nocturne Files, book 2.5 in the Insomnia Saga and the second short story collection to be featured in the series!

The Nocturne Files contains a novella and a short story written in dual perspectives, diving deeper into the series’ past and the lives of Nilisa Solovey and Alain Somnus, whose names we’ve encountered in NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #2)…

 

The Nocturne Files ebook edition is available for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Smashwords

and can be found in paperback edition for $8.99 on:

Amazon

 

 

Watch the first book teaser:

 

• The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga #2.5)

The Nocturne Files contains a novella and an accompanying short story, told from the perspectives of Alain Somnus and Nilisa Solovey; a young man who became the world’s savior when he discovered powers with which he could battle the darkest creatures ever known to man—and a girl who believed them to be angels instead.

First, the Nightprowlers brought them together.
Then, they divided them forever.

File #1, told from dual perspective, revisits the night Alain Somnus performed a ritual of shadows, opening a gate to the realm of Night and accidentally inviting the demons to spill into his world.
The Masters of Night, the monsters are called—yet Nilisa Solovey, Alain’s unwilling fiancée, knows them as the Night Angels instead, for her secret lover, Orion, has been able to see them since he was a child.
And the moment Alain starts fighting them, Nilisa knows it is up to her to protect them—even if it means losing her family, her wealth, her life. Everything.

Nilisa’s story continues in File #2, as she struggles to live in a new world where angels are viewed as devils. Alain has opened the Somnus Academy and is teaching the people how to become Summoners of Light, making Nilisa realize she needs to gather like-minded men and women to stop the slaughtering of divine creatures.
As she crosses paths with the Queen of the Night Angels, an opportunity presents itself for Nilisa that enables her to become a soldier in this war of Night and Light, and save all that she loves:
A man, broken in the eyes of others. A child, who she believes deserves a better world. A queen, destined to rule.

 


 

Writing this short story collection has been a lot of fun and rather interesting, as it allowed me to explore the history of the Insomnia Saga‘s universe even deeper — and writing from Nilisa’s perspective was especially intense, considering she’s on the side of the Nightprowlers and regards them as actual angels (!). Let’s just say it was freakishly cool to live in her head for some time 😉
