Hello there! Online I’m known as Kyologist, my real name is Kyle Ketcham (yes, I’m being serious), but you can just call me Kyle. My goal is to grow as a writer and hopefully publish my work one day. Along with this, I’d like to work on my Twitch streams, and one day become somewhat successful with those!
For this main page, let’s focus on my story, Phantonics!
Phantonics: The study of the phanton.
Phantons are tiny particles that make up the soul of each and every person. They are responsible for things such as the existence of ghosts, as well as “Abilities,” which are mysterious powers one can unlock upon “awakening” their own inner phantons.
Adam Grayson meets Charlotte Ouderkirk, a ghost of the royal family of his country known as Requiem. He awakens to one of these Abilities, which Charlotte seems to recognize as the “World Mirror,” a power closely connected to her family. With Charlotte’s memories wiped of important information on the matter, Adam begins to explore for the truth behind his unique Ability. He, along with many others in the story, will soon come to a painful realization:
Do they know anything at all about the world they live in?
Head right on to the first chapter if you’d like!
Or check the story out on Royal Road (Recommended to help keep track of chapter progress)!
Or Wattpad (Not really up to date at all, but I’ll get to it eventually)!
Phantonics is a story I’ve been trying to write since 2010, going through many different changes as I age and learn more about the world. Those past forms… are awful. I may post snippets of them at some point for the fun of it, but I officially want to post the current version here on this site.
My goal here is to grow as a writer and bring this story that has meant so much to me out into the world. Feel free to share any comments or concerns you may have about the series! As I begin to write out the actual books for the series, do note that it will differ from the web novel. Although I want the web novel to be the best that it can be, I’m also using it to experiment with several ideas I have.
