Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enters Here
Renfields is a blog that is an online depository of stories and random writings by me, CJ Sauter. I am an unpublished hobby writer who is interested in writing fiction that involve aspects of horror, religion, supernatural, sci-fi and the fantastic. The one novel I have completed writing is The Great Families: The Saxons. The Great Families is a projected series (maybe 10) following the exploits of Alistair Saxon, a living servitor of a vampire. It has been rejected by more publishers and agents than I can count, so I decided to try something different- to publish it online.
While The Great Families is a YA novel, not all that is posted up here is appropriate for minors. In an attempt to ensure that visitors can choose what they want to read without being offended, I am keeping this page the the man page. To read ANY of my posts, you have to click on the categories. If you ‘follow’ my blog, I cannot determine which material is sent to you as all posts from this blog will be sent to you.
Read my posts- offer feedback or ideas, and even contribute your own stories! If you like what you see- invite others to this site! In all honesty, I do not expect this site to take off or even become much read. With that said, I also don’t want my writings to languish and die on my computer without being shared!
I will be posting a chapter or two of The Great Families: The Saxons weekly, until the whole novel is posted.

I have started the second novel in the series: The Santiagos. Though I have largely abandoned it- Alistair, Neve and Jaime seem to be bugging me, wanting me to complete their story. Maybe one day I will.
