Progress – June 25, 2018

June 25, 2018

Hail, fellow adventurers.

I don’t know about you, but last week was a bushwhacking week. Some incredible high points (so lows too, but balance in all things, right?) Whew!

Let’s see… I got my print copy of Eggs at Play. That was fun.

Some people have also already noticed that the next Loki novella, 1-800-IceBaby is up for pre-order. It will officially be available August 28th. Spread the word!

PS. That word is “mischief.”

(insert Loki’s laughter here)

Yeah, he’s a bit excited too.  Read the rest of this entry »

Onesong – Chapter 36

March 28, 2018

I feel like all I’ve done recently is take notes for Onesong. My notes page inside my file (something that I didn’t do until this novel — usually I have notes outside of my draft, which means I always have to go looking for it. I think this is a habit I’ll have to change because I do like having my notes inside the file) is growing. Most of them are simple little things, scenes I still need to write mostly.

But soon, I’ll be ready to get back to Onesong and I’ll have lots of notes to start with. I can’t wait. Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 23

December 20, 2017

Right now in my story, this chapter and the next are actually one chapter, but it’s very long and I’m not certain that the position in the story will hold. Because I might rearrange the second part of this chapter to a different spot in the story, I decided to make them separate here.

Now, this first part of the chapter has been part of the story, but the second part (what you will see next week) is new. I realized I needed to add it in when I discovered another scene that I’d need in the story. Chain reaction. So, if you’ve been reading my progress blogs and listened to me talking about dictating, well, the section you’ll see next week is from my dictation sessions.

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 23 is available for 1 week only! Unless you subscribe to Patreon at the $5 per month level where you can get additional access. If not, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Onesong – Chapter 4

August 9, 2017

So, in my manuscript, this is actually chapter 3.5. I can’t remember why I made this part come between chapters 3 and 4 originally. Maybe I realized chapter 4 was getting too long and broke it apart. Maybe I did rearrange parts of the story. Anyway, I just laugh and hope that I remember later on that I’m actually now a chapter off from my draft. (grin)

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Enjoy!

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 4 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Onesong – Chapter 3

August 2, 2017

I want to thank everyone who has been reading and enjoying the story, especially those of you that take the time to let me know you’re enjoying it.

Stories are part of our nature as humans. We tell stories about our lives to each other. We let our words teleport us to another time and place. We embellish our memories as we relive them. We even have stories that we ourselves don’t necessarily remember until someone else mentions them to us and we have one of those, “Oh, yeah! That did happen,” moments.

Writers are fortunate enough to live multiple lives because we don’t just have our stories and those of our families, but the tales of our characters as well. There is something very special in getting to share that with others. Thank you for letting me share this story with you.

So, away we go. Enjoy!

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 3 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!
