"Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine
There's nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Be anyone, do anything I'd ever want to try
Time doesn't exist here, I will never die."

Welcome to my profile! My name is April, author of the featured and 2015 Watty award winning high fantasy novel "OathBlade"! Thanks for checking in, I hope you find something you can enjoy!

I started out writing fanfiction, got bitten by the writing bug, and now here I am building worlds and torturing innocent (and not so innocent) characters.

I'm a big advocate for people writing whatever makes them happy (so long as it doesn't harm anyone, of course). No matter what anyone says just write what you want, and for whatever reason you want to. For fame, for money, or just for yourself, who cares? Life's too short to take away other people's simple pleasures!

Outside of writing, I like to play video games. In fact, you can check out me and my husband's gaming channel here:

My work, my profile, and my community in general is a safe space for all people. My work is LGBT inclusive and will stay that way. So to put things simply, my work isn't a platform to debate religion or politics. If you attack my community you'll only be asked ONCE to stop. Refusal = Mute.

If you don't know these guys, you're missing out:


Read their work. It's awesome.

I'm always open to feedback and crave corrections.

I have a lot on my plate, so please don't send reading requests or advertise your work on my profile or fiction stories. If you'd like to advertise, you're more than welcome to post in my advertisement book.

"I am not fearless. I am terrified but I write anyway. I pretend no one is going to read my words and I try to make sense of this world that is so breathtaking and beautiful and complicated and hideous."

So it's been awhile since I've been here. I got an announcement but I want to get this out first because it's quite important and I know that I still have quite a few followers both past and recent...
