Overlord – Season Two

Lord Ainz Ooal Gown is looking to expand his influence over the land of Yggdrasil. He has identified the countries and their intents, looking for their strengths and weaknesses. Haha! Their weaknesses are that they pale in significance next to Ainz Ooal Gown and his servants.

His first goal is to concur the land occupied by the Lizardmen. He has entrusted Cocytus with completing this task, although it’s not as straightforward as he may assume. The Lizardmen band the five different tribes together in an attempt to stave off Cocytus’ army of the dead.

In Re-Estize, Sebus and Solution remain undercover, researching the city and its occupants. Sebus has a chance encounter where he rescues a badly injured woman from a brothel. Under the influence of his creator, he takes her in and promises to protect her. Continue reading “Overlord – Season Two”

Call Me M by B.K. Boes

Another two weeks have passed and that means it’s time for another fantastic addition to the Alteruvium Expanse. I am really enjoying the variety of the genres and styles in these stories. There’s definitely been a lean towards science fiction although there’s more to them than just genre.

So far, we’ve had a Retriever, a Sun Mage, a Gambler, a Soldier, a Mechanical Titan, a Conman, and a Protector. Impressive isn’t it, and to think we’re only halfway through. If that’s not enough, then trust me, there is a lot more to come.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned the price of these stories until now, so, here you go. They are all 99p/99c or your local equivalent and all are in the Kindle Unlimited program. So, if you have a subscription to Kindle Unlimited, you can read all of them for free. If that’s not cool enough, keep an eye on my Twitter feed for giveaways with the Alteruvium Expanse.

That’s a lot to think about, so why don’t I just introduce you to the eighth story in the Alteruvium Expanse. Continue reading “Call Me M by B.K. Boes”

In her new role, Violet travels around the continent assisting a variety of clients as she tries to rebuild her life. Continue reading “Violet Evergarden – Season One”

Red Sun Rising by Alison Ingleby

Don’t panic, they’re still coming. The Alteruvium Expanse continues to grow, adding more fantastical and speculative tales by an exciting group of authors. (Yes, I’m one of them. No, it’s not blowing my own trumpet, I am of course talking about the others… really…)

This is usually the spot where I would ask you kindly to leave a review, but then this is also the seventh story in the Alteruvium Expanse so you should know the drill by now. Just don’t forget to mention a unicorn when you review The Valley of Souls by T.S. Brothers.

One of my favourite things about short fiction is that you can get through a whole story in one sitting. The stories are usually tighter and more focused, which I am also a huge fan of. I don’t care for filler. Get to the point already. They also have some of the best endings.

Well, that’s enough filler… back to the Alteruvium Expanse. Continue reading “Red Sun Rising by Alison Ingleby”

Forgotten Worlds by Andre Jeter

Alright. Have you caught up on the Alteruvium Expanse? Well, I have and there are some very good stories so far. Mine is still to come, so hopefully, that trend continues…

This is the sixth story in the Alteruvium Expanse. Six! Can you believe it? Organising authors can be as frustrating, if not more so than herding cats. Thankfully, I’ve not been responsible for that task, but I can say that it has been a remarkably smooth process so far.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Please take a moment to leave a review. It doesn’t have to be super detailed. There are few things authors like more than receiving reviews… I think maybe coffee, seclusion, and alcohol, but it’s easier to give them a review.

So, here is the sixth addition to the Alteruvium Expanse. Enjoy. Continue reading “Forgotten Worlds by Andre Jeter”
