Announcement: Short Story Release! “Lady Of Attica”


Here it is!

The Whiteraven Net

Several months ago, I briefly alluded to projects I was working on that I hoped to release sometime this year. Those who have been following me on facebook know I predicted some important news would be coming to T.W.N. very soon.

I’m happy to announce that one of the secret projects is ready to greet its readers! The short story – entitled “Lady Of Attica” – will be available to read for free here on the website under its own page on the main menu. Its summary will be released next Tuesday, June 7th, with a new installment appearing each week.

Enjoy! This one is special in many ways.

Return to posting, Upcoming Lit. News!


The Whiteraven Net

After a period of absence from most social media, I am officially returning to updating T.W.N. and Superlative Deviation! I’m busily trying to complete a project for release here on the website but hope to share an update in a week or so.

In keeping with the season, I will be posting a few items to S.D. that revolve around the Angelic New Year, which I and others who study with my personal mentor observe. It might not bee as in-depth as I’d like it to be, since my main focus is elsewhere; but I am celebrating and wanted to share a taste of the positive vibes.

Stay tuned for the literary update and more news later this month!

Poetry: “Choosing Sides”


One of the poems chosen for the book.

The Whiteraven Net

I awoke one day to find

a cryptic lie had seized my mind.

I awoke one day to see

illusions claiming I was free.

I awoke one day to feel

the seven deadly, putrid seals.

I awoke one day to think

how near my soul came to the brink.

I awoke one day to do

what pride had begged me never to.

I awoke one day to dare

reject the darkened powers of air.

I awoke one day to know

the true … “above is so below”.

I awoke one day to stand

among the few meek of the land.

Lit. Update: Future Steps


New literary update.

The Whiteraven Net

It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it.

As I already knew, “self-publishing” requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it’s what I have to do for now. At least I’ve accomplished one of my major life goals and can continue to build on it. It’s wonderful to be able to look back on the progress I’ve made, not just in writing but in life.

Now comes the constant effort needed to balance these new parts of my daily life. Plus, I’m renewing my efforts to get a part-time job to support my financial needs. For those readers who are also hoping to publish their work in some form, I highly advise that you get and maintain a day job. Don’t…

Announcement / Lit. Update: “Excerpts and New Platforms!”


Update from T.W.N.!

The Whiteraven Net

The latest draft of my first poetry book is complete! I am slowly going through a list of possible agents and publishing options.

Over the next several weeks, I’ll be revising T.W.N. a little more. Older content will be removed and new excerpts will debut! For now, I’ll use the artwork that has been on this site before; but know that when the book is released, any images included will probably be different. As I’ve always stated, no copyright violation is intended with the artwork I do share. These are simply pieces I admire and feel compliment the mood and theme of each poem.

I have also created accounts on two new platforms where I’ll also share some excerpts and special posts unique to those platforms. The first is Medium, and the second is My Poetic Side (also powered by WordPress). You can find the links on my “About”…
