Welcome to the homepage for my 2010 NaNoWriMo novel!

This novel was written offline and the current plan is to upload it as a serial story in 2012 (edited of course!).

The Plot

The Earth and Not-Earth are in the midst of a Sundering, growing spiral patterns that swap chunks of one planet for another. No one knows how it started, how to stop it, or how to deal with the chaos the Sundering leaves behind. (Dun, dun DUN!)

Humanity and a species built loosely on the awesome that is Mimic Octopuses must work hand in not-hand to adapt to their new realities.
