The LaLauren Mansion

PDF: The LaLauren Mansion (Full)

Summary: This 23 chapters story is my attempt of challenging the conventions of linear storytelling by skipping between two distinct timelines and worlds randomly every chapter or so. The major themes of the novel revolves around the ugliness of envy and the persistence of virtue (and the virtue of persistence) despite hardships.

The Last Syllable

PDF: The Last Syllable (Full)

Summary: This relatively short work borrows notable quotes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth for its four chapter titles, giving closure to some of the loose ends to The LaLauren Mansion.

Once again, these are merely drafts, and thus contain errors. I simply made them into PDFs just so it’s easier for people to read. Enjoy!

Chapters:

  1. I. Innocent Sleep
  2. II. Beguile the Time
  3. III. So Foul and Fair a Day
  4. IV. Brief Candle

 

The Emperor and Her Assassin

Summary: The purposeful “mistake” in the title of the book is the first impression of defying the expectations of a generally male noun, “emperor,” by describing it as a “her.” While still developing, this story follows the adventure of the princess of the fictional, fantasy Lunzeldine Empire as she struggles with balancing traditions, friendships, romance and individualism.
