Welcome to Carthian Dreams, an online serial fantasy novel. The story is still ongoing, and is updated as new chapters are completed.
FIRST TIME VISITORS! Please use the "Table of Contents" box on the right side of your screen to navigate through the chapters. The "Older Posts" and "Newer Posts" links at the bottom of the page will not always bring things up in the right order. The Table of Contents will be updated as new chapters are uploaded.
It's been a very long time since I've updated this site. The last real update was to publish chapter 11, and that was back in August of 2014. Since then, I've done a semi-major overhaul to the book, especially to the first chapter (which never really felt to me like it flowed very well.) I also wrote Chapter 12, most of Chapter 13, and the final chapter to the book. (There are still several chapters between 13 and the end, but the end is in sight.)
"Real life" has kept me incredibly busy, making time where I can actually sit down and write hard to come by. I still hope to at least have the first draft of the story finished by the end of the year. I will probably go through and update the site with newer versions of the already completed chapters, but for now, please treat them as very rough drafts.
I'm still debating on whether or not to wait until the book is entirely complete before posting the rest of it, or putting it up as I go.
Sorry for going so long without updates. It's just been a very busy time for me over the past year, and wow, that time slips away insanely quickly before one can even notice. If you're still out there, shoot me an email and let me know what you think of the story so far. It really makes a difference to know that folks enjoy it. And thanks for your patience.
Please use the navigation links to your right to view the chapters posted so far.
