New Stories to Come! (Update)

Hello! I'm currently applying to some conventions (the application periods are so early...), but since I plan to update this website in a particular order, I thought I'd at least put a list here of Arbitrary Travels stories that are finished at this very moment, but may take a little bit of time to post up here. Have a look if you're curious about what's to come, and if you'd like there are more frequent updates on my social media accounts, particularly Instagram (@arbitrarytravels) (for more links to social media accounts, please see Contacts page).

  • "Arbitrary Travels: All Can Change" - this is a 50 page story following Audrey's first adventure with the other residents, and how it goes horribly wrong...mostly due to Audrey's own choices. I'll only be posting a 19 page preview on this website, but all fifty pages are finished and will be available soon as a complete print book.
  • "Arbitrary Travels: The Traveler's Cave" - a 7 page story about Audrey finding one of the Inn's secrets - a cave that has the power to transport anyone to any world or time period. Although, since Audrey is new to Fairview Inn, the other residents aren't sure if they can trust Audrey with this discovery...
  • "Arbitrary Travels: Fighting for You" - a 12 page story starring Piper and Edward. Edward has been captured on one of his missions, and Piper decides to free him, feeling she is in debt due to the countless times Edward has protected her. However, Piper struggles with whether or not she is capable of helping Edward, and how.
I'm also working on a book for new readers called "Arbitrary Travels: Introducing Fairview Inn", which shows Audrey's story of becoming a resident at Fairview Inn and learning more and more about the Inn's lifestyle. It's somewhat anthology-styled, being comprised of stories each with varying lengths, so it's a bit easier to break down, share, and complete than a single long story.

And, of course, I'm still writing and thinking up more ideas. Arbitrary Travels stories are self contained, meaning there's a lot of adventures and stories that are possible. I'm almost certain there'll be at least one more fantasy/adventure story by the autumn, when many of these conventions take place.

In any case, thank you for reading! I appreciate your support so much.

How Audrey Found Fairview Inn

Hello, and welcome! I hope you enjoy this story, where Audrey takes action to try and grow closer to her new friends, accidentally finding their true home - Fairview Inn.

This 10 page story takes place after Audrey has befriended some of the Inn's residents, who she only knows as fun, interesting, and very kind people. But, Audrey notices her new friends are acting distant with her, much to her dismay. Fearing that they don't actually like her - or worse, are using her like her old "friends" - Audrey tries her best to find out the truth. The truth, however, is something even she could never imagine as being real...

Some notes about this story (includes spoilers: you can read the above first!):

  • The blonde character in Audrey's nightmare is her old best friend, who bullied Audrey pretty badly and ultimately betrayed her when Audrey needed her help the most.
  • This is the first time this particular spirit appears before Audrey. She seems to have quite a fondness for Audrey...why is that? Perhaps we will find out in a later story...
  • This story will be continued in a full length book called, "Arbitrary Travels: Welcome to Fairview Inn!", which will be available on this website once it is completed.
  • This story also serves as an intro for another book called, "Arbitrary Travels: All Can Change", available soon on this website.
Thank you so much for reading! I would love to hear any thoughts you may have, so feel free to contact me!

Introducing Piper

From a series of two page comics showing each Arbitrary Travels character's personality. Each comic shows how the character usually acts, until something happens that reveals a hidden, often darker part of themselves.

Here, Piper struggles to maintain her composure and happiness against her inner pain.
