Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 16

November 28, 2018

Patience. 

That is my wish for the world this holiday season: may everyone learn to have patience. With themselves and with others. If we all would slow down just a bit instead of desiring everything now (to be home now, to be at work now, to be at the store now, to eat now, to have *whatever* now, to have success now, instant weight-loss, instant healing, etc., etc., etc.), the world would be a much better place. Quit being in a rush. 

There is no need to rush.

(And if you are, how was that your own fault – take 100% responsibility for it.)

Life responds better when you are calm. 

Patience. 

Dragons of Wellsdeep is an epic science fantasy story filled with action, adventure, space travel, magic, dragons, and flying. Chapter 16 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 12

October 31, 2018

I am well underway for working on this story again. I’m glad that I listened to the lessons I forcefully learned during my recent issues with Tangled Magic and Walk the Path and am now applying them to Dragons of Wellsdeep. Next is Stonecharmer and its sequel, Stonebreaker. I really do hope that after this is all said and done, I become a much more capable writer.

Onto the story.

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 10

October 17, 2018

I want to start by thanking everyone who shared Loki’s post yesterday. It’s so exciting to know that so many people enjoy The Loki Adventures. Thank you.

Short chapter this week. I almost thought about adding it into last week’s chapter, but that one was so long. Maybe I’ll end up adding something or breaking it at a different spot. It’s hard to say. I do know that this one will be deepened.

I also hope I cut out all the swear words from this online version. I so rarely write swear words into my stories that I often forget when I do.

Yeah, I know, you want to get to the story. *grin* Let’s go!

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 4

September 5, 2018

Yes, I confess to this being a short chapter. It’s actually one that I wrote into the story much later — in fact, I think I wrote this scene back when I was working on Mystery of the Stardust Monk because I always meant to go back in and have Balthier call his ship Rhonda at some point. I apparently never did that because I just checked and it’s not in there. Dang — this is why I have to always make notes, then make sure I don’t lose those notes.

Three years from now, I’ll probably come across a note that says, “Call the ship Rhonda,” and I’ll have no bloody idea what I was going on about. (grin)

I do know this was where I conceived of the scenes alternating in point of view from Moonhunter (who was supposed to be the sole point of view charaters, like Steigan in Sacred Knight) to Balthier. He has become such a fascinating character to me and I’m really excited to see what this holds for Balthier later on in the book.

Right now though, it’s getting to be time for me to be merging in pieces I’ve written and getting part of the story wrangled around so I can share it here. So, short chapter here, but there will be more rolling at you.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 3

August 29, 2018

Are the days going faster? I can’t believe this week is half over already! I know (and accept) that the days are getting shorter as we move toward fall, but the temperatures are already rapidly dropping and I’m not ready for summer to leave yet. I’m already drinking hot chocolate in the evenings because I’m so cold.

I wonder if novihomidraks are bothered by the cold. You know, I’ve never really written about that. Hmmm…. Stuff to think about.

Okay, to the story.

Dragons of Wellsdeep is an epic science fantasy story filled with action, adventure, space travel, magic, dragons, and flying. Chapter 3 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! 

Previously: Moonhunter was born and his novimather (dragon mother) left him in the care of an older novihomidrak named Balthier.

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 2

August 22, 2018

Until recently, I always thought this story would be told from Moonhunter’s point of view only, much like my Sacred Knight story is only told from Steigan’s point of view.

Then, as I was going back reading chapter 1 a few months ago, I realized that I’d slipped some of Balthier’s point of view in. Not to mention that the dragon had a good chunk of the first part of the beginning of the chapter. I suddenly wanted this to be told from more than Moonhunter’s point of view.

In opening up other view points, I didn’t expect what has happened. I’ve spent a lot of time writing this story from Balthier’s point of view and have really gotten to know him.

Oh, don’t worry. This story is still about Moonhunter (and what he does — hint: the answer is in The Doorway Prince). It’s just interesting to see the development of the story.

Just trust the process.

Okay, I know you want the story — let’s get to it! Don’t forget to share and get your friends reading too. It’ll give you all sorts of fun things to talk about!

Dragons of Wellsdeep is an epic science fantasy story filled with action, adventure, space travel, magic, dragons, and flying. Chapter 2 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! 

Previously – You can still read chapter 1 here.

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 »
