10/1/2014 - A FOX'S TALE 2 FINISHED, SECRET PROJECT - 'RUKH FAILS' IN PROGRESS.
Finally got A Fox's Tale #2 done, now it just needs cover-art. I'm taking a bit of a break from my other fanfiction as a new idea has taken over my brain and is monopolizing my writing time of late. Like Titans Broken this story will be one I will post in it's entirety almost all at once. Right now I'm 6 chapters in and it's getting thicker all the time so expect it soon. Right now I'm calling it 'Rukh Fails' as a working title. It's Star Wars fanfiction, so get ready for it.
6/23/2014 - VALKYRIE: CANDIDATES PRICE REDUCED - A FOX'S TALE 2 NEARLY FINISHED.
Well, after a bought of relative inactivity I've been pressing forward on the second book in the A Fox's Tale series. It's been tough going, and I've suffered quite a bit of writers block in the process, but most of it's written. As I finish it up, I decided to drop the price of VALKYRIE: Candidates down to the $0.99 mark. I've also been doing work on a couple stories that will be aimed at more traditional publishers.
I'll also be running a free ebook day for all my stuff on July 4th.

Then I'll be working on the second installment of A Fox's Tale for a November release, and the second installment of VALKYRIE: Into the Heavens will be released in December, if all goes according to plan.

9/8/2013 - VALKYRIE: CANDIDATES LAUNCHED
It's here, VALKYRIE #1: Candidates launches today in the Kindle Store. Get it at: . I will be releasing updates for my fanfiction all day in promotion of the launch. If you like anime, science fiction, and so forth give it a try.
9/1/2013 - VALKYRIE #1 DELAYED TO 9/8/2013
What can I say? I seem to have picked up the local illness. Along with the cover art for my next book taking a bit longer then I planned... I decided to delay the release of VALKYRIE #1: Candidates to the 8th. Once again, this means that I'm holding off on all fanfiction updates until the 8th as well, as I plan to have them coincide with releases now. Thank you for your understanding and waiting.
Now where was that decongestant...
8/20/2013 - PRICE REDUCTION ON A FOX'S TALE
After sales of my first book dipped over the last week or so, I decided to reduce the price for the story. A Fox's Tale: The Warden's Daughter is now available for the minimum for 70% royalties, if I cut it any further I will receive less than half of that. The new price for "A Fox's Tale: The Warden's Daughter" is $2.99 USD, 1.49 GBP in the United Kingdom, 2.60 Euro across Europe, and 250 yen in Japan. The actual list price may vary slightly due to Amazon.com adding a 'delivery charge' to the price based on the file size.
Buy it now! PLEASE... *Makes Puppy Dog Eyes*
8/20/2013 - VALKYRIE #1 and FANFICTION UPDATE
As Valkyrie #1 - Candidates approaches completion (I have to do the cover, a polish, and some final tweaks). I think I'll explain what will happen now with my fanfiction account and the stories posted here. I will not be abandoning anything, instead... Well, I plan to release fanfiction at the same time as my original fiction goes live on Amazon, sort of like as a promotion. All current projects will be updated at that time (I'm hoping for a September 1st launch). Which means you'll be getting new chapters for: Boys und Sensha-dō!, Earth-16 Go!, Infinite Rebellion: Breaking Free, One World, Sword and Shield: Volume #2: A Family Visit, The Outlaws, The Raven, and Titans Reimagined. I would restart Mass Effect: Break the Cycle and Standard of the Stars if I had time, but I don't. In addition I will be launching a number of complete fanfiction stories from EVE Online which have never been seen before on Fanfiction.net (You may have seen them on the EVE Forums or my blog before).
I ask everyone that has supported me here to spend a couple dollars, quid, euros, yen, or whichever form of currency it is that you use on launch day to buy my book and help propel it up so that others might be suggested to buy it. Thank you for your help.
8/8/2013 - ORIGINAL BOOK LAUNCHED
Thursday, around midnight I pressed the button in Kindle Direct Publishing. Being sleepy, I missed a typo (already fixed) that, and watched as the various gerbils spun in their wheels at Amazon.com and converted the html document I'd uploaded into an ebook. This was the end of a month long collaborative effort between me and my sister, whom I had commissioned to create the cover.
The first book in my series, "The Fox's Tale" went live by noon. It's currently available for $3.95 in the United States. On August 9th, starting at 12:00 PM, it will be free for a Launch Promotion until August 13th. I encourage all who have supported me in becoming a writer, my family, parents, mentors, teachers, and all my followers on fanfiction, twitter, blogger, tumblr, and facebook to take advantage of the promotion, read the book, and write a review. The more responses, reviews, and downloads I can obtain over the next week or so are likely to greatly determine how well the book does in it's initial run before the arrival of it's sequel.
You can get the book here:
From this point on, I plan to have a book released every two months or so. Releases will be on a tumble schedule between three series that I plan on running simultaneously. This is to keep me from burning out writing any one series for a drawn out period of time (A Fox's Tale is likely to be a very long running series with the current plot I've sketched out). I will have one Fantasy Series (A Fox's Tale), one Science Fiction Series (VALKYRIE), and one Alternate History Series (The Greatest Game) running simultaneously, and my next story (VALKYRIE #1) is nearing complete as I type.
Thank you for all of your support in my endeavors.
Biography: Who am I? My real name is Paul Naughton, I'm a twenty-seven year old man living in Nebraska. I graduated from Fremont High School in 2004, where I wrote my first book Stellar Magic: The Merlin Academy. It is from that book and the universe that it created in my mind that my user name is derived. In 2008 I graduated from Midland Lutheran College in Fremont Nebraska with a BFA in English. In 2009 I entered the strenuous Writing for Popular Fiction Program at Seton Hill University. I graduated in 2013 with a MFA in Creative Writing.
Writing is my life, reading is my life. I write on average over 2,000 words a day, and sometimes as much as two or three times that amount. I spend the vast majority of my time outside of that either working as tutor for a pittance or reading. Occasionally I have dabbled into such varied fields as Game Modification (Modding), pen and paper RPGs, EVE Online, and various other forms of gaming.
I must stress that my fanfiction is not a job, it's something I do for free and never represents a truly finished or polished product. I spend much more time cleaning up and revising works for publication. Fanfiction is a hobby, as such you shouldn't expect my updates to truly be very regular anymore as I focus most of my efforts on Original Fiction.

FULL METAL PANIC
Sword and Shield Series
A continuation of the Full Metal Panic storyline after the light novels, Sword and Shield focuses on the effort to keep the Whispered out of government hands and actually falls back on many of the same ideas that inspired the original series. It is written with a more realistic interpretation of the world closer to the light novels then the anime, as a result many of the volumes are much more like Geopolitical Thrillers then the straight up anime style robot smash ups.
Sword and Shield: Volume #1: Picking up the Pieces
Synopsis: Amalgam is destroyed, Mithril is disbanded, and Leonard Tesstarossa is dead. This doesn't mean the end of the relentless pursuit of black technology. Rated M for violence, language, and sexual themes. Slight AU, post series. REWRITTEN!

Synopsis: Sequel to Sword and Shield: Volume 1. Sousuke Sagara and Kaname Chidori travel to Afghanistan on the invitation of Ahmad Shah Massoud.

LittleBro!Harry, BigSis!Hermione. Not a HP/HG Ship. Canon Pairings.

The Son of Prongs Series
Unlike One World where a lot more serious... *snickers* things happen, Son of Prongs is meant as a much more lighthearted series. Unfortunately I haven't had time to continue the series beyond it's first installment thanks to my original works eating into my free time.
