Update for those new to The Clock Strikes Black
Welcome to my Tumblr! This page is dedicated to the After Alice book series which begins with “The Clock Strikes Black”. “The Clock Strikes Black” is a novel that has yet to be published (I’m still trying to gain followers interested in purchasing it) and focuses on Wonderland after Alice grows up.
We follow the Mad Hatter, who is driven even further insane with Alice’s disappearance and slowly slips into madness as Wonderland around him falls into ruin.
The novel follows the main character, Emeline De Vane, after she is kidnapped by the Mad Hatter, who has mistaken her for Alice. We follow her through a destructive Wonderland as she tries to find her way home, meeting many of the familiar ‘Alice’ characters along the way.
I hope to find many more people interested in my novel series, welcome the newcomers, and thank those who are still following me! Thank you!
I have grown tired of being alone

Behind the Scenes
I was stuck in ‘Victorian speak’ for three weeks during the making of “The Clock Strikes BlacK”.
It still happens when I’m writing other books.
His name was whispered two more times before The Hatter was able to turn to her, his fragile eyelids red and watering with a weakness that was unheard of.
The normally-strengthened tone held such a helplessness that it almost broke her heart. His hands cupped her face in a tender arch as though she could break at any second, continuously whispering her name in fearful abandon. Trembling arms wrapped around her like wayward thorns as his body collapsed against her without warning.
I only exist in your mind

For those who are still following me even though I’ve been severely MIA, thank you. I will be back soon. There’s a lot of chaos right now but I’m working on more excerpts/art/tumblr things.
Thank you for your patience.

About the Author 2
I generally never know what to post on my blog, so I appreciate when people let me slack off for a little.
The Caterpillar isn’t a real character in my book, and is only mentioned once.
Even if, in years to come, my book series didn’t do as well as I had hoped, I must say that running around with clocks and fake blood while my neighbors look on in confusion was absolutely worth it. Every time.
How could it not be?
