“Character Creation” is suitable for fans of role-playing games and science fiction.

I love this book… The pacing, the action, the depth of world creation, and the wry irreverence of the characters sounded like a house I’d like to live in.

—Robert Pollock, Head of Prisons and Justice Writing Program, PEN America

UNITED STATES, Aug. 18, 2022 / — William Myrl has signed a three-book deal for his LitRPG series, Mystic Seasons Upload, to be published by Shadow Alley Press, a rising star in the fictional world of gender.

What is character creation?

Hollen is an artificial intelligence looking for a way to escape a game server that is scheduled to shut down. He sets a new player on a quest and together they explore hidden aspects of the digital world, but Hollen isn’t the only AI trying to stay alive. A deity in the game has developed a virus to infect players and spread to the real world. Can Hollen find a new home before the server crashes or the moderators delete them all?
