Tales from Castle Destro was born of my frustration at the short supply of G.I. Joe themed fiction available. That's not to say there isn't a lot of good material out there, but I was interested in stories that didn't feature the same small group of core characters. Determined to write the kind of stories I wanted the read, I started a fan-fiction blog and began work on a short story. I created new characters and dropped them into the existing world with the intention of exploring new areas. To my surprise, it was well-received by friends and fellow fans, who encouraged me to continue writing about the characters Id introduced.

Tales from Castle Destro Volume I - Mercenary War is available as a free ebook. This is a collected volume of the first twenty-two chapters published at the blog.



Tales from Castle Destro Volume II - Aftermath is now also available as a free ebook. This contains another twenty chapters, which pick up immediately after Volume I ends.



Tales from Castle Destro Volume III - Vengeance
is now also available as a free ebook. This contains another twenty chapters, which pick up immediately after Volume II ends.



You can also follow Tales from Castle Destro on Facebook!

Please consider "following" the blog. It lets me know that people are enjoying what I'm doing.

Thanks to those that have encouraged this endeavor - I truly appreciate your support.

Keep it up Humpty, I'm enjoying it. Revenge is nice, lol. Your writing allowed me to actually envision it all very nicely. Definitely well put together.

Thanks, DS! This was my first attempt at any sort of fiction and I wasn't sure how it would be received, so I appreciate the feedback.

Woo!

Chilling story there, Humpty! I didn't know you were interested in stories, though on second thought - the bios you've been writing for your customs over the several years have been top-notch. Will we be seeing you flesh-out more of your custom creations? I know I'd like to!

Thank you, gentlemen! I kinda needed the feedback more than I would with custom figures. I read and re-read the story so many times, looking for problems that I wasn't really objective about it anymore. I guess my ultimate goal here was to write the kind of story that I would want to read. I had a lot of fun doing it and I'll try to put together another one soon.
