Etzoli is creating web novels

Hi there!


I'm Etzoli, and I write things. Mostly, I write long-form web novels that are heavy on dialogue and characters, with chapter word counts that a friend once described as "the perfect amount of time to finish a full-course meal." At the moment, my primary focus is The Last Science, the story of a fading town in the Pacific Northwest that stumbles upon magic in the present day, and the people who have to figure out what to do about it. The first book of the story is done, with several more on the way. 

This Patreon is here to provide something back to readers who've fallen in love with this story like I have, with the dream of someday being able to write full time. I'll be offering up chapters in advance, as well as a direct line to me via Discord where you can poke me about whatever you like (though I won't spoil anything.) 

I write a lot on a regular schedule. Every Friday will see at least one chapter published, without fail, and the average chapter comes in at about 8000 words. On Mondays — when the story prompts it — I also publish bonus interlude chapters, which can be anywhere from 7000 to 21,000 words(!) in length. This means that you're getting over half a novel's worth every month, and on some months a full novel in raw wordcount. 

I offer a few chapters in advance for patrons above the base tier. These will be made available via Patreon posts in PDF form, which should also load into most reader apps on phones pretty well too! So consider that a neat bonus for chipping in a few extra dollars for this grand adventure.

Thanks to everyone who's supported me so far. I'm a sysadmin by trade, but a writer by passion, and I don't plan on stopping ever. When I finish The Last Science, I have plenty more ideas to come, so I hope you'll stick around.

The Last Science

"How did you do that?"
"Short answer? Magic is real."


Nestled deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, something is emerging. Kept in absolute secrecy, it seeps into a fading town, quietly shared from person to person. For Alden Bensen, a directionless high school graduate, this discovery could mean an escape from his empty existence. To Rachel DuValle, perpetually underestimated and dismissed by the world, magic represents a chance to become something much greater than herself.

In the face of an unsuspecting world, their decisions shape the growth of a budding society discovering untold power. This potent force offers anyone the power to change humanity forever — or send it cascading into swift and total annihilation.


I've also completed another novel called Epilogue, a post-fantasy psychodrama about a group of high school students who come back from an adventure in another world. You can find that one here on RoyalRoad.

Epilogue

In the war-torn land of Cyraveil, four heroes strove to overthrow an empire by cold steel and elemental sorcery, and brought peace to a warring land on the brink of destruction. As the flames died, the realm needed strong leadership, and who better than the champions who had saved the kingdom? But when the people sought out their saviors... they vanished.

Matt, Blake, Jen, and Carl: the mysterious companions who together had deposed an insane ruler and saved countless lives, were gone — spirited back in a whirlwind of magic to a sleepy suburb in Mellbridge, Oregon, never to return. The friends found themselves home in the real world, exactly as they'd been the night they were taken, as if no time had passed... except only three came back.


annnd I've just launched a new novel, a LitRPG/VRMMO titled Ætla Verǫld, or Avo. It'll be publishing roughly twice a week chapters on RoyalRoad, right here. Patreon subscribers will receive up to two chapters in advance for Avo as well.

Ætla Verǫld

AV Online was just a flash in the pan—a harsh, experimental world which lost most of its players in mere weeks. Only the dedicated few remained, carving out their destinies in corners of the vast abandoned world. Lily Quinn wasn't one of them. With a career worth millions in the esports world, she didn't have time for a game like Avo—but when an exclusive beta test for the new version showed up on her doorstep, she couldn't say no… as much as she wanted to. Literally hooked into the simulation, Lily reluctantly entered a world beyond anything she'd ever dreamed of.

Accompanied by seven other beta testers desperate to save their beloved game, Lily dives into a vibrant, beautiful world, where mystery and adventure waits around every corner. Despite her reservations, Lily finds a joyful escape in Avo, shattering her cold, hollow reality. It was just a game though… until the group discovered they couldn't log out. Trapped in a game with no rules, and surrounded by cutthroat players eager to kill for a quick windfall, Lily and her ragged band have no choice but to fight their way out, or die in a game that has turned all too real.

Benefits Information:

Advance chapters will be offered in epub and PDF format through Patreon posts. These advance chapters may have less editing and are subject to minor changes up until posting to the public. I'll do my best to notify advance readers of any significant changes.

I will post work-in-progress information about my current stories in the premium Discord channel for subscribers. Anyone with Premium access will also have a chance to beta-read future non-TLS works.

Any other questions, feel free to ask me on Discord and I'll let you know!
