I am thrilled to let you all know that Walk the Path has been released. This is the second and final part in the Onesong series (unless I decide to also put Cirvel’s portion of the story into this series too — who knows!). Still, this completes Rivic’s adventure which started in Tangled Magic. You’ll see Rivic again in Prince of the Ruined Land (Sacred Knight #4).
In other news, I believe I am done with The Missing Thread (Sacred Knight #5), but I’m trying to write a bit further into the 6th and final book in that series so that I can be sure that the series wraps up nicely.
Going to get back to it. Strangely, books don’t write themselves (and I fear the day that artificial intelligence is truly smart enough to do just that).
I am temporarily discontinuing my weekly free fiction.
It’s not that I don’t like doing, or that I don’t want to do it, or that I can’t write fast enough to do it. It’s that I’ve come to realize that I need to be very protective about the part of me that writes my fiction and I’ve seen how this could potentially be very hurtful to my artist child.
I am working on big changes in my creative life, which I hope will allow me to get back to the free fictions posts, but in a way different fashion. It will take a bit for me to get there though. I am hoping I can resume later this year.
Or, if I get bored at some point, I will post something that is currently published. I just don’t have enough of those stories to do it weekly — yet.
But for now, I write and keep it to myself until it is done.
“We think one of the hits penetrated it enough to depressurize it. He was still conscious when we brought him onboard, pounding at the glass to get out,” the astronomer explained.
Jadz pulled the cutting torch from around her and fired it up. “Stand back. This is going to spark.”
She went along the sems of the life pod hoping that these lines would be where the metal was the weakest. Without protective goggles, she had to cut at a strange angle. Still, every now and then she had to stop put out sparks on her clothes. A couple of sparking cinders singed the skin of her forearms.
Mouse must have sensed her hesitation. “No one’s here. You fixed their shuttle, so they went out to take closer readings of the nebula. They were so excited.” She gave a little roll of her eyes as she spoke.
The door before them slid open, revealing that Mouse had spoken truthfully. The Astrolab was empty.
“Whatever you did to get it up and running, thank you!” Mouse said.
The station needed a lot of work. Mouse had been right about it needing a lot of upkeep. Jadz fell into the easy rhythm of pulling maintenance records for each area of the station and just getting to work.
“Have you eaten anything today?” became a frequent question from Mouse, who often showed up with a wrapped sandwich in hand which she tossed at Jadz with a wink. “Don’t stay too much passed your shift.”
