“My Best Friend is a Prince from Another World”

Update 12/2022: finally getting some new chapters up after a long break, and added a synopsis below.

I’ve been working on a “novel” for a couple of years now; it’s not fan-fiction for any story in particular, but it is intended as something of a general homage to a number of genres I like (western portal fantasy, “Isekai” anime/light novels, and shonen rom-com stories.)

I’ve been posting the finished first part (~30,000 words) at Scribblehub and have been posting the less-well-edited and very much “work in progress” second part on and off as I get chapters done.

My Best Friend is a Prince from Another World (series page on Scribblehub)


“…so other worlds with magic are real, and supposedly my mom was a princess from one of them and they’re asking me to go there because I’m next in line for the throne.”

High school friends Mark and Joel have their lives uprooted when Joel discovers that his late mother was actually a princess who fled from another world. With the King old and infirm, Joel is asked to return to that world and take his place as the rightful heir.

Before that, he has to graduate high school. How will Joel be able to live in a new world and claim his throne?

Mark, a nerdy and isolated young man, follows his one close friend to a new high school in a new world. After all, it can’t be worse than NYC in the early 1990s…?
