Inside of this quietly-cracking Cocoon, Lily Godwin awaits your discovery of her story of mystery, terror, metamorphosis and transcendence. And above all else, Love reflected in all of its glittering, broken, and unpolished facets. But something is stirring, inside… a reflection of something much darker, something not of this World.
UNBOUND is an epic story where faith is tested beyond its rational limits, desire is dangled like the fruit of a forbidden tree, hope is dashed into the depths of hellish despair yet raised unto the heavens in supplication, and is set in an ever-darkening Place illuminated by San Francisco’s faltering, flickering city lights, where all of these worlds will collide while chaos encroaches on Creation.
The Final Door shuts as Lily finds herself bound in her chrysalis. There is a Light here… but it is dimming. And Lily holds its limpid Lamp in her trembling hand, afraid to pierce the Darkness with her sight, but knowing that she must, and when she does she’ll finally see but then IT WILL ALL GO OUT -

I came upon this perfect quote that sums up everything associated with UNBOUND the site, the novel, and myself. So, please consider this short version of What’s It All About:
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
Well said, Albert.
So, if you agree, then by all means Welcome and Enter!
However, a cautionary note: People who won’t See the Mysterious won’t feel particularly comfy here, as some mysteries are undeniably provocative. People who won’t Feel the Mysterious won’t find anything awe-inspiring here, as some mysteries are so subtly felt. But if you’ve gotten this far, I have a feeling that You might See, and Feel
Just thought you’d like to know. Please put on your Peril-Sensitive Sunglasses (TM) until the perceived peril passes. Have fun!
