2018 April/May/June Update:
As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.
However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.
From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.
During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.
It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages. The primary page has now crossed 60,000 89,000 words and counting, the whole set of Avallac'h pages are now more than 200,000 words long, and more then 500 pictures of Avallac'h and his friends have now been uploaded on these pages, plus there are now 400+ hour-long videos f the costume making process as we record live, every second of this insanely elaborate, over the top CosPlay project.
As of May 19, just 29 days to PortCon we are embroidering his blue coat in a countdown against the clock to finish in time for the event, while we pray that The Dazzling Razzberry will be re-weilded back together and drivable in time for PortCon, after it's recent vandalism by Old Orchard Beach's ever growing Ku Klux Klan problem.
There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

After PortCon Update:
PortCon 2018 is over... but the making of the Avallac'h CosPlay is not. It is not possible to make a costume as detailed as I'm making in fewer then 400 hours, and only 129 hours went into the simplified first run version you saw at PortCon'18. The complete version will not be seen until PortCon'19
If you want to see this costume in person and watch it's progression onward as I continue to expand it... I'll be wearing it at the monthly Maine Association of CosPlay Enthusiasts (M.A.C.E.) events, throughout 2018 and 2019, you are welcome to join us. The list of current events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293470827423558/events/ This list is updated monthly, so be sure to check back often to find all the dates, locations, and details of events.
Hymal Kadar: Demon of the North

UPDATE: November 13, 2017
Cover Reveal & More Info on The Project!
Hymal Keydar is a "Sweet Romance" Monster Porn series I wrote for fanfiction.net back in the late 1990s/early 2000s. This series is a retelling of the classic Japanese folktale: "The Inugami".
If you've never heard of it, Inugami was a shapeshifting dog demon who rescued and fell in love with a Human girl. In the original folklore the Inugami takes the form of a rabid akita dog and murders her husband. In vengeance the girl, buries the dog alive at the foot of a volcano, thus removing his ability to turn back into human form. The Inugami eventually starves to death and his spirit haunts her the rest of her life.
Several modern day re-tellings of InuGami exist, including novels, comic books, movies, and tv shows. Though only one has ever gained popularity outside of Japan: InuYasha, the Manga and Anime series by Rumiko Takahashi.
Like my other series (The Bride of Sesshomaru, and The Quaraun series) Hymal Keyar also drew heavily on InuYasha for inspiration. While most of my fanfic series put Lord Sesshomaru as the main character, this one, instead put his companion Rin as the main character, now renamed Dawa for it's mass market release.
Even though it was only rated PG-13 and contained no on page sex scenes, it was one of the many stories which got deleted in 2012 when FanFiction.net mass deleted 11,000 stories off their site.
Presumably this series was deleted off Fanfiction.net because of the graphically violent on page murder of Hymal Keydar's beloved horse, and a torture scene in the dungeons.
Currently it is only available as a limited edition short run chapbook that was handed out as a freebie to fans in 2013.
However, as many people have been requesting it's return, I am currently (today is November 13, 2017) in the process of removing the copyrighted characters, replacing them with new original characters, and formatting it for an Amazon release.
Hymal Keydar was scheduled for release summer 2015, but as you know, all book publishing was put on hiatus after the kidnapping.
Kindle and paperback print editions are expected to be available to the public in late 2018/early 2019.
...and yes, I am still working on the Quaraun books. There are now 5 Quaraun novels (each novel equaling 4 to 6 short stories combined and expanded into 1 long story) available in both Kindle and paperback prints. At least 2, possibly as many as 4 are due to be released in 2018.
The cover art for the new Amazon release have now been made, so, here they are:
About the Series:
Set in an unspecified (and therefore fictional) region of Asia, in an old but unspecified time period that is probably the 1780s-ish.
Main character Dawa is a common thief. A young street urchin forced to steal food to survive after her family is killed during a war. A wild Human girl with no manners, she runs from the city guards, wanted for the crime of stealing bread, right into the arms of Hymal Keydar, a wandering prince from the Himalayas Alps. Seeing that the half starved girl is guilty of nothing more than being hungry, the strange prince buys the girl from the guards.
Fearing her new life as the prince's slave, Dawa finds herself treated like a princess, by a man with many dark secrets and a bevy of bounty hunters keeping him on the run.
