Cithria Book 4 Preview! Read the Prologue to The Master now!

Prologue Joba reached for the glass-encased oil lamp on the top shelf. He set it on the counter next to his latest project, nudging it around slightly to get the best light. The sun had drifted behind the hills west of town, draping his workshop in shadow. He’d be called to dinner soon, even though […]

Critique – True Detective S2E1

Jun 23, 2015 | No Comments

One thing writers need to have a firm grasp on is critiques. They need to be able to take critiques from other writers or readers, and they need to be able to critique their own work objectively. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s critical for understanding how to craft your writing into something […]

Coming Soon

Jun 11, 2015 | No Comments

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Coming Soon post, and even though none of you are clamoring for it, I figured I’d throw one up anyway! Before getting into what we’re currently working on, however, I suppose I should talk a bit about what we accomplished in the first part of this year. […]

Convention Season

Jun 8, 2015 | One Comment

Lots of stuff going on here at the4threalm.com, which is part of the reason why there hasn’t been much activity here on the site. In fact, two posts before this one is the last chapter of our Christmas story (which I encourage you to read!), so that’s a good five months of radio silence. But […]

Welcome New Authors

Jun 5, 2015 | No Comments

Hello readers! We’ve been working on some big news for a few weeks now, and I don’t have the patience to keep it in any longer. In 2010, the4threalm.com began as a collaboration primarily between three authors – Kris Kramer, Alistair McIntyre, and Patrick Underhill. Our goals were modest. Write books, tell people about them, […]

Part 6 – What Child is This?   Now you know the story. Beard came with his army, and laid siege to the North Pole. The gnomes charged into the night, laying waste to the gingerbread walls, the candy-wrapped lamp posts, the silver Christmas Is Back banners. The elves fought back, but they didn’t have […]

Assault on Workshop 13 – Part 5

Dec 26, 2014 | No Comments

Part 5 – O Come, All Ye Faithful   “Move!” A shove in my back sent me stumbling forward, my green Uggs splashing through the thin layer of icy cold water that covered the tunnel floor. “You’re slowing us down,” Snowed In barked. “Sorry. I’m new to this whole held-hostage-by-a-punk-ass-traitor-to-his-people thing.” “I’m not a traitor.” […]

Assault on Workshop 13 – Part 4

Dec 24, 2014 | No Comments

Part 4 – Blue Christmas   “Well, lookey here,” Rooster grunted. He backed away to let the boss into our dank, dimly-lit hideout. “A regular back-door Santa.” Santa gave him a look as he moved through the door. An elf-shaped figure followed him into the room, wearing a tailored black suit. “Kwanzaa! You’re alive!” I […]
