A Few Remarks Regarding Recent Events

Divide And Conquer The one thing about rights is that we're all supposed to have them, equally. One of those rights is the right of free expression and in Canada where I live, (responsible) freedom of speech. In modern society, the underlying organized chaos in the form of manipulative groups of nasty people tends to play us each in a dualistic dichotomy of bifurcation. Sorting us out from a vast allegiance of people who share common interests and goals despite our differences, to isolated cliques and individuals based upon what I just described: bifurcation. Bifurcation is kind of like a tournament championship ladder, where two concepts or idioms are played one against the other according to the biases of specific individuals or groups. So for example, believers versus non-believers. Vaxxers versus non-vaxxers. Workers versus the unemployed. Educated versus the non-educated, the old versus the young and so on. Each bias we make with regard to one of the two sides of these dichoto

The Butterfly Dragon

As a result of social abuse by a local harassment and hate group and with little support from the local community, I fear that I must cease writing any new content for the Butterfly Dragon storyline until further notice. The same fate has befallen the A Lady's Prerogative line of stories as well. Hopefully this situation will find itself fixed and soon lest we take legal steps to remedy it.

The Butterfly Dragon I: Heroes Of Our Own

The book that started it all. The first half of this book was first published online in June of 2012 after I'd worked on it for about two months on my personal blog for viewer feedback (of which I got none) but I did get a lot of reads.

Two little girls, one from the East and the other from the West. One with a talent for fashion design and the other a scientific genius. One, a newcomer from the distant land of China and the other severely lacking in confidence and self esteem. The gifts that these two can share with one another will change their lives and may in turn save the world.

Prologue: Two Little Butterflies

Act I: The Genius And The Butterfly

Act II: Old Friends United

Act III: Island Of The Blackmail Empire

Act IV: Trouble In Paradise

The Butterfly Dragon II: What Different Eyes See (Chronologically after the story A Piano, A Full Glass And The Disappearance Of Time).

The SY-349 formula, now having passed most of its clinical trials, is on the brink of wide scale release to public and the medical world. In the press it is being called "The True Cure" for Cancer and a host of degenerative diseases and disorders. A miracle pharmacological drug. Nothing could be better for the future of Tynan And Associates except for the one thing that keeps both Alicia and Norler awake at night. 

How are the poor of the world and developing nations going to afford this miracle cure? Alicia and Norler come up with a plan approved by the United Nations which will reunite them with Heylyn Yates, Monique Defleur, Valerie Aspen, Zheng Ni Wong, Doctors Katya and Victor Piotr, the legendary Bryce Maxwell and Sociologist and Eastern Cultural Expert, Doctor Stephen Briggs. 

Together they will venture to the mysterious Far East of Asia on behalf of the West in attempt to build the bridge that nobody could, while others seek to sabotage such an effort to further their own dire plans.

I've split the rewrite into several different acts, each of which contains several related chapters. They are listed below and will be added as they're published.

All of the artwork is far from finished, and I'll be adding it as time proceeds.
