Whats an Anovoca?

About Me

After belonging to this website for almost TEN YEARS I thought it was about time to share a bit about myself :D.

So, who exactly am I?
Unlike most of the long time members of deviantart's wonderful Lit community I am neither a student of literature nor write by trade. Actually I'm just a lowly IT guy who started out on this site by uploading a few song lyrics and downloading WinAmp skins.

Since then I have transitioned form lyrics into poetry where I have, through years of practice and receiving great feedback from this site, turned writing into a regular part of my life.

While I still spend plenty of time on deviant art working on my poetry and reading the forums my primary emphasis has recently shifted to novels which I have strong hopes of getting published in the near future.

Current Projects

The Heirs
Skeeith by Anovoca

The Heirs is the first novel I have ever tackled which will be part of a trilogy with the possibility of a prequel.

The Heirs saga is about a race of gods and a war that nearly annihilated them from the universe. As a last resort, they created for a hidden world for their offspring and sealed it from their enemies.
Book one, The Heirs of Revelation, follows the offspring of these elder gods as they slowly discover their origins and struggle to reclaim their immortality. As they struggle for power, the veil that hid their world from the war of their fathers is slowly torn apart.

The Cycle

The Cycle is a scifi thriller about a world free of disease and hunger that has become plagued by overpopulation. When technology offers a solution, everyday life is changed forever for the lower class.
When the machine becomes tied to a plague ripping through the underclasses of society, the creator of the machine has his life turned upside down and is thrown into the new way of life that he had created.

It appears that the site was hosting my journal background has changed the image file. Unfortunately for me I don't have time to bother changing the code i used to build my journal skin so it will have to stay this guy fawkes for a while longer. Just use your imagination going forward and note that it is supposed to be sheet metal grey patterning.
