Welcome to the world of Tesser

The online version of Tesser is now premium access only, or you can pick it up below on Amazon!


Imagine for a moment that you are a Dragon.  A creature of unimaginable power, unending intelligence and strength, and you've just woken from ten thousand years of slumber. 

Your last memories were of primordial forests, erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world, faeries, witches, vampires, krakens, and monsters that feared where you turned your eyes.

But all that is gone.  Humans, only barely coming into their own in the world from your memory, have taken over.  They have erected cities made of stone and steel erupting from the earth like stalagmites reaching for the high blue sky, and developed sciences that have overshadowed even the glory of old magic.

This was not the way it was supposed to be.

Meet Tesser, the Dragon.  He who walks in any form, and flies the skies free of fear.

And he wants to know why he slept for so long, and where all the magic went.

Tesser is a now complete novel that is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble online, as well as at select retailers. 

If this is your first visit to the world of Tesser, please start with the Prologue and first five chapters of the story.  They are free for the taking.  Beyond chapter five you'll need to fork out the clams to buy the print or Kindle version, or sign up for a premium subscription here on the website.

Would you like your name in A Dragon Among Us?  I ran a popular promotion for my Adrian's Undead Diary series for folks to get their name in Book Four, and I'd like to run the same offer for Tesser fans.  For $7.00, you can get a name placed at the beginning of the book, listed as a "Inner Circle Member."
