South Hertling Chronicles Web Series

Welcome to Do It Yourself, the serial novel where low fantasy meets high soap opera. This is the first volume in the projected South Hertling Chronicles series. Complete at 72 bite-size chapters, suitable for reading on phones and tablets.

Somewhere in the depths of Australian suburbia the Handy Pavilion, a big-box hardware store drifts towards war with its rivals in the DIY Barn. Join the eccentric Pavilion employees as they live, learn, mangle the very nature of causality and love. A fantasy, superheroes, scifi, romance, suspense, comedy, Western action series, and I'll probably get around to adding self-help, Japanese cuisine and naval history  eventually. Got to hit all of those Amazon categories.

The South Hertling Chronicle is listed on the Web Fiction Guide. If you like the story, why not go over there and give me a review or an upvote on Or if you don't like my story, you can go to those sites, and you'll probably find one that's more to your tastes. It's all good.
