Onesong – Chapter 21

December 6, 2017

One of my fears with releasing this book online chapter by chapter as I have been, is that there are spoilers to the Sacred Knight series in here.

I’m going to let you know now that because I haven’t yet released Prince of the Ruined Land, I am removing some bits of Onesong so as to not ruin the twists and turns in Prince of the Ruined Land. So far, the story threads perfectly together without these small parts, but just in case over the next few weeks there are parts that seem to jump or are rushed, that is the reason.

This is so important to me because I want to save all that information for those of you that have been loyally reading the Sacred Knight series over the years and are waiting for the answers you know are coming. Major information is revealed in Prince of the Ruined Land.

Seriously, if you haven’t been reading the Sacred Knight series, or started but haven’t finished through To Birth a Destiny (History of a Dead Man is a companion novella, but Read the rest of this entry »

Onesong – Chapter 20

November 29, 2017

Time to hit the downhill sled ride toward the end of year holidays and the beginning of a new year. Ready, set… go!

I personally can’t believe 2017 happened so fast. I’m not ready for it to be 2018 – not that this year has been anything special. None of it went as planned. I just don’t want another year to be in the rear view mirror.

How about you?

I wanted to share with you an experience from earlier this week. A friend and reader saw me on Monday and we visited for a moment. She had seen my post on Facebook about having to rip my story back apart after getting it all stitched up and was curious about it. I explained that it was actually quite common for me to cycle back through my draft and rip things apart, which is why I always have to do a final read-through of the draft at the end to make sure all the information flows as it should. She also knew that I had more than one project at a time going and was wondering how many of these I’m currently trying to keep in my head.

I counted them up.

Nine, but I told her about ten because Onesong is one currently sitting on the fence. I’m both writing and editing it at the same time. Again, something that is a normal occurrence for me. After we spoke, I went to a spreadsheet I have and looked it up. Yep, nine projects currently underway. This doesn’t include the half-a-dozen or so which are waiting in the wings or the children’s books I keep nagging myself about.

Anyway, I thought it might interest you to see what it starts to look like. Mind you, this graphic is before I realized that I was going to have to rip apart the ending and scatter its tattered remains. I had planning on putting this graphic up next week, but it seemed to make more sense to do it now.

Yeah, things are fairly orderly here.

In having to rearrange a few things, this is only going to get stranger. I’ve recently started using a special software program to help me create ebooks and I can’t wait to pull this book into it. So far I’ve been impressed by its capabilities, and I’ve broken it a few times, so I’m really curiously excited to see what it does with these chapters. (grin!)

Let’s get on with the chapter, shall we?

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 20 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Onesong – Chapter 19

November 22, 2017

“So, you’re posting the next chapter on Wednesday, right?” I got questioned this week.

Why yes! I am posting the next chapter.

I know several readers are enjoying this. Thank you for letting me know. Thank you to those of you who continue to share the story and remind their friends to keep reading as well. Remind those who haven’t started that they can get started now by reading the summary. Better late than never.

Well, on the flip side of this blog, I’m busy writing and working on Onesong and Prince of the Ruined Land, so I want to get back to that. This, therefore, will be short. Let’s get you to the story.

P.S. May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. Don’t just fill your belly, but fill your imagination as well. (grin)

Onesong – Chapter 18

November 15, 2017

If you read my progress blog earlier this week, you know I felt like I decimated Onesong with a direct shotgun blast to it. With my Sacred Knight series, I’m well use to writing a nice story, then realizing that I have the scenes all out of order, which means I then have to dismantle and reassemble in the correct order. I should have known that Onesong would be the same.

Why can’t they be more like the Loki stories which are usually written fairly cleanly? Sigh. Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 17

November 8, 2017

 

I spent a lot of this last weekend deepening this story and tightening my net. I was so excited about it that I could barely keep myself from working on it. It’s just so much fun Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 16

November 1, 2017

You know that I usually start with some sort of introduction. Sorry. I’m still too tired. Yep, too tired to tell a story. Thank goodness this one is already written, right!

Well, I’m going to post this, then I’m going to get to sleep. Hopefully tonight it doesn’t take me a couple hours to fall asleep like it did Monday night. You know, it was one of those Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 15

October 25, 2017

If you’ve been reading this from the beginning, I mentioned that this story was still rough. If you were paying attention in the last chapter, you probably saw it.

Did you see the sentence, “The spell that killed Evahn.”?

Yeah.

Since last Wednesday sneaked up on me so much, I had only read about half the chapter. I had to put it up.

When I got back to proofing the chapter, I went, “Who is Evahn?” Read the rest of this entry »
