Progress – June 18, 2018

June 18, 2018

Adventuring in time and space has been a week of dodging laser bullets and maintaining radio silence. What a week.

Oh yes, I have many great notes on it.

This week’s adventures have included hanging out with a ninja-to-be. Shhh! He doesn’t know he’s on the path to becoming a ninja, but it is the third origin story. When I hang out with Alex Dent, I must be super quiet. The world they are on have an unknown, but very deadly entity on it. All the soldiers on this planet they hope to colonize are scared.  Read the rest of this entry »

Onesong – Chapter 45

May 30, 2018

Keeping it short and sweet this week.

I thought about adding the next chapter after this one to the story, but the ending of the first part really needs a good break, so I left it here. It might end up being in the end of the previous chapter since it’s not very long at all.

I have divided the book and am beginning my review of the Tangled Magic section of it. I’ll have to re-imagine the ending a bit because it’s not solid right now, but it will all sort itself out. I trust the process. And I know it will be spectacular.

Thank you to readers who have finished Prince of the Ruined Land and excitedly wrote to me to find out if I was going to have the 5th Sacred Knight out soon (The Missing Thread) or these books in the Onesong series. Yes, Onesong is up next. I feel that I needed this part of the story first. The Missing Thread is my current Frankenstein’s monster. Well, sort of. It’s more like pieces and parts lying all around my lab on shelves waiting for me to return to them.

I have wondered if Steigan’s uncertainty is what is keeping me from writing the scene where Keteria wakes up. This is my biggest unknown at the moment. It’s not like I haven’t written the scene where she wakes up; I’ve actually drafted 4 different versions of it, then threw them all out because they aren’t right. Steigan is so worried about her and what’s going to happen, that I now have the nervous jitters about it.  Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 44

May 23, 2018

Well, my friends, we are nearing the end. And this is a chapter I know many of you have been waiting for. The moment. (No, no spoilers in the introduction).

I can’t believe I’ve been running this for nearly a year now.

Thank you to everyone who has been with me since the beginning and to those who have jumped on board. I certainly hope you’ve been enjoying it. I think there are about 5 more chapters left after this one. So let’s finish the fight, shall we?

Onesong – Chapter 42

May 9, 2018

The scenes you are about to get today, there are two of them, are not completely fleshed out. I feel there is more coming. It’s also another section which I’m not sure belongs right here.

And, after watching Infinity Wars this last weekend, I wonder if what I’m setting up in the first scene is even a good idea or not. It might lead to an overpowered character that my current characters have no hope of defeating. Yeah, I suspect that before these scenes become official in print, they will change greatly. But you get to see the original acorn of the idea.

Okay, let’s get onto it.

Onesong – Tangled Magic cover

May 4, 2018

I promised a cover reveal yesterday.

After much thought, I decided the title should be Tangled Magic, but if you know the publishing industry, you know that titles are never completely set in stone (and neither are covers). Walk the Path was a nice idea and would have reflected in the book, but that means someone won’t really be attached to the title until they finish it and see the repetition. Titles need to be part of the draw, part of what makes readers pick up the book. Yeah, I learned a few lessons in titling The Three Books and changing it to Quest for the Three Books. It needs to evoke questions in the reader. Walk the Path equaled, “What path? Who’s walking it? Why?” But Tangled Magic has more of that pull: “Why is the magic tangled? Who tangled it? What does it mean to be tangled? What happens when it’s tangled? Is it like Ghostbusters where it’s bad if they cross the streams?”  Read the rest of this entry »
