About Christopher Ridgeway

Hey everyone,

I'm here to show you Novels and Short Stories that will take you on an adventure. I'm a writer who has created and refined ideas for short stories, novellas and novels in my spare time for many years, and I've always wanted to have the time and resources to write them seriously, plot everything out, and produce for an audience. I've decided now is a great time to bring these stories to you, and I hope you enjoy them dearly.

[•] Village of Spirits [•]
My first Novel, Village of Spirits, will be posted both here and at

Village of Spirits
follows the adventures of Aver, a young boy who has found himself transported to an alternate world, with very little memory of anything beforehand, and the two human-like animal-trait-bearing "spirit" sisters Enshy and Iris, who yearn to feel safe in the land they grew up in. The story has an innocent beginning, but becomes more serious as the characters try to pursue their dream to change the way humans treat them. Many characters show up to either help, oppose, or be caught in the middle of Aver's grand plan, which quickly begins costing much more than he could have prepared for.

The entire Novel will be free and public, meaning you can get your friends and families hooked too without ever paying a cent. Just head over to my page at to read all of the chapters so far.

[•] Become a Patron to read chapters sooner! [•]
However, if you'd like to get chapters two weeks earlier than anyone else, as soon as they come out, you can sign up to become a Patron of mine for as little as $2/month.

This small donation helps me towards the goal of becoming a full-time writer, without having to worry about day-to-day living expenses. If I'm able to make this venture profitable, I'd be happy to focus my time on producing more stories like Village of Spirits deep into the future.

To reiterate, all of Village of Spirits will be free to read over on my page at, however chapters will be posted there two weeks after they are posted here. Chapters posted here on Patreon are therefore visible two weeks earlier, but require that you are a Patron of mine. Please consider becoming a Patron of mine if you'd like to read more of my work sooner -- you can cancel anytime, though your donations always help me further along my goal to becoming an independent, full-time writer. If I'm able to make a living doing this, then that means more stories, faster, for you to read!

Chapters of Village of Spirits are publicly visible at my page over on DeviantArt, and are a good teaser for what I'm capable of writing. I want to write enough, and well enough, to interest this many people in signing up to become a Patron of mine.

Patrons get all chapters two weeks before they are posted anywhere else!

The more people who sign up, or who view my work over on DeviantArt, the more I'll be motivated to keep posting more and more chapters, faster!
