New novella coming soon!

When I released Lucifer’s Odyssey, I also released a shorter novella that centered around the struggles of Angels and Demons, written in first person perspectives. I had hope of doing a similar thing with the Goblin Rebellion, and I’m happy to say that we’re on track to deliver the second novella in the Perspectives series alongside the second novel in the Primal Patterns series.

I’ve added the novella information to the Short Fiction page, but I’ll include it below as well. I plan on releasing this to KDP Select, as I did recently with Lucifer’s Odyssey. If you have any thoughts on this, please feel free to reply here or send me an email at rexjameson at

Title: Elves and Goblins: Perspectives of a Father’s Rebellion
Word count: 14,000
Status: Editing
Expected Release: Late February.


The elves have spent the last three hundred years starving and dying in quiet martyrdom while the goblins have built their towns and great markets. In the beginning of the peace, the elven sacrifices had seemed worth it. No war would mean greater prosperity, and everyone would benefit. But as the goblins’ success grew, so did their persecution and isolation of the elves. Without jobs, money or hope, the elven population declined, and the goblin men herded them into camps far from the great trees, universities, and streets of the bustling goblin towns. A fatal disease now spreads in the melancholy camps, taking the husbands, wives, sons, and daughters of the decimated race. And as a father looks into the eyes of his dying son, the last of his line, he realizes he has no choice but to break the centuries-long truce.
