Welcome! I am L.S. Johnson, award-nominated author of dark fantasy and weird fiction, and this website is the online notebook for my Prima Materia series. Inside you will find my notes on research and craft, galleries of visuals, the soundtrack I’m working with – things I would normally put in a story binder or wiki.
Most of this material is available to all, so please feel free to browse at will! However, a few posts are password-protected, due to their length &/or rights restrictions. The password for these posts is part of membership in Prima Materia Quarterly, where for as little as $1/month you can read the books in quarterly installments before they get their final polish. These payments help to fund writing time, research materials, and editing and production costs.
What the heck is Prima Materia? Briefly, it’s a dark fantasy series that a fellow author called “the vampire War and Peace.” As of this writing the first novel and the first of two prequels are both written, and I’m working on book two and prequel two.
But L.S., I don’t care about these darn vampire books, I’m only interested in your short stories/Chase and Daniels novellas! Then please check out my main website and consider signing up for my monthly newsletter, which includes updates on all my work. However, keep in mind that Prima Materia Quarterly memberships support my writing and research, and that includes other projects. Many of my short stories and the Chase and Daniels series all came out of Prima Materia research.
What if I don’t want to sign up for something, but I’d like to make a one-time donation? That’s lovely of you, thank you! You can always donate via Ko-Fi or Paypal. All monies go to support my writing.
