Last night, thanks to a conversation on Twitter about favorite classical pieces, I discovered an error in Perdition that undid an entire page of the book.
You see, my favorite Chopin CD contains a misprint. While Marian Pivka plays Mazurka, Op.63 no.3, the CD liner states it’s no.1. The two pieces are noticeably different in character, and the choice in music not only matters to the description of the song, but also to Daisy’s personality, as well. Though seemingly a small mistake, forgetting to exchange a 3 for a 1 can prove disastrous both to this moment in the Queen’s cottage, but also to any mathematical equation.
Whether you’ve read Perdition, or plan to, here is my sincerest apology for the mistake. May you enjoy hearing the proper piece that characterizes both scene and protagonist:
It’s finally here! The Grasp of Time live action trailer:
Thanks go to Laurel Clark, Deidra Danderson, Arya Starling, and Indie Oven for making this video.
In case you haven’t seen it yet on other social media, I’ve posted my first book trailer ever, and the first for The Grasp of Time.
There will be a longer, live action trailer coming in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!

If you’re not already a patron, and you’re curious what stories are available to subscribers, you can view excerpts of each story for the following years: 2014, 2015, and 2016. Please note: all stories are in their raw form, and not edited for publication.
As for The Grasp of Time book trailer that I’ve been hinting at for a while, I’ve finally gotten my act together, and am uploading files TODAY for a video editor, so there might be something to show you in the next couple of weeks! The actors in the video have been super patient with me, as life interrupted our plans.
Given my inexperience directing and filming a trailer, I’m hoping the video editor can do these lovely people justice for all their hard work and skills.
Science Fiction has been promising flying cars for about a century. The Grasp of Time continues the tradition, showing the late 21st century to have finally developed the technology.
The difficulties come, of course, with legislation and infrastructure. Hence why there are control towers throughout a future Seattle, and why the majority of flying cars are predominantly mass transportation or taxi services. Flying isn’t something everyone can manage by that point, but perhaps by the 22nd century, people will have it figured out.
If only they could do something about the racist faction against Fae-born and other magical creatures roaming the world of the future.
