Happy New Year!

2018-abstract-art-285173 (1).jpg

It’s been a bumpy year in our home, filled with both amazing accomplishments and heartbreaking experiences. Though I spent a few months there processing grief, I have since been working on the next projects in my queue.

Seal Breaker, the sequel to The Grasp of Time, launches in a couple of months. To celebrate its impending arrival, I shared the first three chapters to Patreon. All subscribers get access to that and a small treat tomorrow night for the New Year: the first two sections of a short story about a pair of unlikely witch’s familiars on a quest I’ve been working on because a dear friend requested someone write the story.

Ellen the Editor is hard at work finishing up the remaining chapters of Seal Breaker, and I’m looking forward to introducing you to THREE new illustrators on the Amakai Series team.

My other writing goals for 2019 include:

  • Completing two short stories
  • Heavily revising the third book in the Amakai series
  • Writing 30 new flash fiction pieces
  • Completing the first draft of Purgatory, the sequel to Perdition
  • Finally deciding on a title for the third book in the Amakai series!

 

Happy New Year and thank you for your support in 2018. May your 2019 bring you lasting success and joyous adventures.

Flash Fiction & Book Trailer

Recently, I went through my flash fiction site (Flash Dash Challenge) and made the following changes:

  • Added excerpt pages for each year, available to be viewed by anyone without a password. (Passwords for full stories are given to $1+ subscribers on Patreon.)
  • A single password has been updated for all stories.
  • The Mildred Pim page is now visible to all.
  • Excerpt pages are linked within the List of Fiction page.

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.

Flying Cars in TGoT

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.

[WORLD-BUILDING SPOILERS]

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.
