Paternum: A Superhero Serial

When Quinn finds an experimental superpower-granting costume in their parents’ attic, they didn’t expect to be drawn into a web of superhuman intrigue, but their discovery serves as the catalyst for that conspiracy to slowly unravel.

… this is the standout hero story that reminds one of lighthearted marvel and dc comics … always an addicting read.” Darch

The Court Magician

All he wanted was to study magic at the direction of his mentor, and live a quiet life with his books. But that plan had to change when the duke called his mentor to serve him as the country’s new court magician…

The Court Magician is a fantasy story about a magician’s apprentice who finds himself out of his depth when his master takes the position of court magician for a duke under magical attack. The first draft is finished, and I’m currently waiting for feedback from beta readers before I start work on a second draft.

This is the currently in-progress novel.


I’m J. C. Weston, and this is the site I use to share my writing. I write novel-length stories mostly falling into the science fiction and fantasy umbrella, with a focus on well-crafted plots and believable characters. I split my writing between serials and individual novels – every Saturday morning, the next chapter of the serial I’m currently working on is published here, while individual novels are published for purchase whenever they’re done.

Other Writings

Paternum and The Court Magician are the original stories I’m currently actively writing, but they’re not the only ones I’m thinking about or planning for. You can read about other original stories I hope to write here.

I also get the urge to write fanfiction on occasion. When I do, I post it to Archive Of Our Own, as theVoidWatches.
