"From Winter's Ashes" is a web serial fiction project in the genre of Fantasy Noir, by authors Patrick Rochefort and Keith Aksland. From Winter's Ashes is the story of Heather Blackthorne, a faithful church knight and Detective. In a world where emotion fuels magic, her job is to solve crimes of passion and hunt down necromancers on behalf of the Church. When her husband and son are murdered in front of her eyes, and their bones stolen, it kicks off a devastating tale of revenge, redemption, and revolution.

We currently post chapters weekly, between 4k-8k words. Our focus is on delivering engaging, sustainable, and professional writing for your entertainment. 

Your support makes this possible, and your patronage makes a difference. Thank you for reading, and thank you for supporting us.

Laika Dosha": Aside from working on From Winter's Ashes, I'm also currently writing a visual novel game called "Laika Dosha". If you like bleeding-edge science fiction with a nihilistic edge guarding a warm heart, you won't want to miss this!

Cameo in the story

Have an original character of yours in mind who'd fit nicely into the From Winter's Ashes universe? We'll work to write your character canonically into the story as a cameo. Ideally, we're looking for wizards and saints, people who did spectacular acts of magic and miracles. Help leave your own small mark on From Winter's Ashes!

Speaking part in the story

All the same as the prior tier, only we'll work in some dialogue between characters. Got a preference for whom they should talk to, and what they should talk about? We'll work it out and write it in. :)

Design a character

Future portions of From Winter's Ashes will require speaking parts and characters. Do you have an idea for a character that you passionately believe would work well in the universe? At this tier, we will work with you to design, develop, and refine your character idea into both a plot element of the story and a visual design with inclusion in an illustration.

Design a major character

There's one slot available for a major character in the third 'book' of From Winter's Ashes, and you'll be helping us design her. She'll be a woman, of noble birth, and in service to the church, but the rest after that is for us to develop with you! This will be a major character, complete with multiple chapters and speaking parts, and working frequently alongside our established protagonists.
Goals
