Onesong – Chapter 27

January 17, 2018

This is going to be a short chapter this week. Very short. I’m still piecing Onesong together and haven’t really been working on it the last couple of weeks. My brain has been possessed by my other idea as well as those edits for Prince of the Ruined Land. Yeah, I do want to get that out soon! I’m sure everyone would love to quit hearing me talk about it so they can be reading it.

There might also be some creative procrastination going on with Onesong. Every now and then I have to put a story aside so that I can figure it out. You wanted to come along on this adventure with me, so here you are, rowing in the same boat I am. (grin)

But first, a special announcement. Click the image to learn more. (Don’t worry, another tab will open so you won’t forget to come back and read Onesong.)

Onesong – Chapter 24

December 27, 2017

You might recall me saying last week that this was part of a new section that I’d added to the book after I realized that I’d need this scene in order to set up another scene I also needed.

Fleshing a story out can be fabulous fun. It can also be frustrating. I once read that it was easier to get things down than to think things up. I have to agree. When I’m focused on trying to think things up and make sure it’s all logical, that’s when it gets hard. When I focus on getting all these ideas down, then I start to see the connections that need to be made and things become easier.

Funny, huh?

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 – Chapter 22

December 13, 2017

The story is experiencing growing pains. I thought I’d show you where the chapters are at right now.

List of scenes - no longer chapters

Yes, this is the typical experience of me writing a story. There are some major changes ahead. I don’t know how much longer I can hold her together. (sheepish grin). I’m doing what I can.

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 »


Space Ninjas Aren’t Real

November 4, 2017

Or are they?

I will be the first to admit when this title popped in my head and I started writing it, I thought it would be a comedy, something along the lines of the humor in my Loki series.

Yeah, not so much.

Selena was too serious of a character right from the start. As the story progressed, I realized why she was so uptight. It took some prodding because she really didn’t want to admit that she’d done anything wrong. I’ll save that for the story.

But I did want to give you a preview.

Space Ninjas Aren’t Real hasn’t been run on my blog as a free story because I’ve been putting up Onesong instead. But now Space Ninjas Aren’t Real is up for pre-order and will be released on November 21, 2017 – just in time for reading while you are waiting for the turkey to cook this Thanksgiving.

Let’s go check out a sample of the story, shall we?

Onesong – Chapter 11

September 27, 2017

I feel so fortunate to have many good people in my life. I have a variety of friends who support me in different ways and I appreciate them all. I hope I tell them that often enough. Thank you for showing up here and being one of my readers. I’m so glad you want to share my stories with me.

I’m still floating from Salt Lake Comic Con, which was still incredible. I’m trying to get ready for Snake River Comic Con this coming weekend. It’s the first one ever, so I hope it goes well for everyone. It’s really fun to watch how cons grow over time. I’ve been lucky enough to have been doing this for a decade now and have watched several shows grow up. It’s amazing to be part of it.

Besides, like I said the other day, it’s great to be with so many creative minds. I love seeing what people come up with for costumes.

I don’t often mention this on my blog, but I probably should do so more often. If you like my writing page (the top Facebook page mentioned in the sidebar to the right), you will Read the rest of this entry »
