The Luckless

The Desperate Quest
Chronicles of Retha was meant to be a full submersion video game filled with adventure and magic…but it has become a prison.
The Revived
Kit is back. And she’s still stuck playing her ridiculous elf dancer character.

  • How many books will there be?
    The Second Age of Retha series will have 5 books.
  • When is the next book coming out?
    There are two more books planned in the Second Age of Retha series. However, there are no estimated timeframes for completion, as I am currently on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time.
  • Can I get a free book?
    Yes! Sign up for my newsletter and you will gain access to the short story: Solus Miles: Royal Knight. Be sure to check out other short stories here.
  • Do you have any reading recs?
    My team and I created a Goodreads list for books that are within the litRPG or GameLit genre (books set in MMORPG, virtual reality or video game like environment) that are also considered "clean". For the purposes of this list "clean" means NO excessive language, NO sex portrayed on the page, and respectful views of women (so no harems).

Read an important announcement from Kitty regarding hiatus.

Author by day, but a hunter (or very frazzled cleric) by night, A. M. Sohma is a lover of books, video games, and sweet armor sets. She aims to write entertaining stories with relatable characters, and spends her days lurking in libraries or wasting time on the internet.

Want to know more? It's a well-known fact in some circles, but since A. M. Sohma is really an alter ego of K. M. Shea, you can learn more about her by reading about Kitty!

Picture of author A. M. Sohma, a penname of K. M. Shea. She has shoulder-length curly brown hair and is wearing a dress with brown and pink diamonds, standing in front of a tree with a hand on one hip, smirking at the camera for a silly shot.
