Tower: Trials is Now Available!


Though little time has passed since Kyle Campbell’s fall into the mysterious world of Loria, its magic has already begun to reshape him. He has flown through the sky in a golden airship, and won a sword from a battle with a goblin chieftain. He is adapting, and his knowledge and power are growing.

However, the danger that shadows him is growing as well. A powerful enemy has learned of his existence, and will stop at nothing to track him down. Kyle needs to find a way home, and quickly. But before he can reach his destination, he is captured by the enigmatic Buors, and brought to their forsaken homeland to await the judgement of their king.

All the while, his relentless pursuers are closing in…

Kyle’s greatest trials are just beginning.

I am incredibly excited to announce that my second book, Trials, is now available for pre-order through the IFWG Bookstore!

Trials, the second book in the Tower series, picks up where Loria left off. It tells the story of Kyle Campbell, a vagrant trapped in a mysterious and magical world. It chronicles his journey through the world of Loria as he attempts to understand, and hopefully reverse, the strange accident that brought him there.

Trials has been three years in the making, and I couldn’t be happier to announce its release. Kyle’s story will be concluded in Archsage, the third and final volume of the Tower trilogy.

The Legend of Maxx Returns!


It’s been some time, but as of one week ago, The Legend of Maxx is once again up and running! For those unfamiliar, The Legend of Maxx is a webcomic based on the indie game Terraria, and is my largest and most successful ongoing project to date.

I first began creating The Legend of Maxx nearly four years ago, and the comic enjoyed an unprecedented level of recognition. Last December, I made the decision to suspend the webcomic indefinitely, as many things were changing in my life and the comic had become a huge time commitment. I’ve now reached a place where I feel comfortable creating the odd comic again, and frankly, have gotten the itch to chronicle more of Maxx’s strange adventures. Hopefully there will be many more comics to come!


Greetings, and welcome to my corner of the Internet! Brew yourself a london fog and stay awhile.

My name is Jesse McMinn; I’m an amateur novelist and comic artist with a passion for fantasy, literature, gaming, and just about everything else under the sun.

Speaking of which, ‘just about everything’ is what you will find in this blog: articles about anything and everything that I find interesting, from gaming to book reviews to angry rants about use of the word ‘said’. Whatever your interests, I hope you find something of interest here! You can use the links in the right sidebar to take a look at some of the words I’ve typed.

I’m currently hard at work completing the Tower trilogy, a fantasy series of novels centered around the life of Kyle Campbell, a regular man who finds himself trapped in a strange and magical world. Book 1 of the Tower series, Loria, is currently out, and the second book, Trials, is slated to be released later this year!
