I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like to. Or as much as I should.
Or, well, at all, really.
Oh, sure, I’ve been writing some but this year just seems to be the year of not enough time.
And I promised things at the beginning of the year that I haven’t kept up with at all.
Which bothers me.
So, I have to ask a question.
I liked Flash Fiction Friday. Enjoyed writing the stories. Enjoyed coming up with concepts off of random titles. Enjoyed hearing the pained shouts of “Dammit, where’s the rest” from the other room.
Which brings me to the question:
Does anybody else like Flash Fiction Friday? Would you want to read more stories? Would you want them posted on the blog or as a kind of Patreon thing?
Let me know in the comments.
Yes, I realize the blog has been quiet for most of 2015. This was mostly because of personal stuff but also because there’s been some behind the scene stuff going on that’s kept me from posting.
So, I wanted to let you know what has happened and is happening.
In 2015, Dreaming Tower and Copper Visions went live in their ebook forms on Amazon. The print forms should be available in the next few days.
One of the things I realized I missed over the last few months was the weekly flash fiction challenge. That will be coming back every Friday. For the whole year. The biggest behind the scenes challenge for that is going to be keeping all the stories organized.
Copper Flight, the sequel to Copper Visions, will be finished this year. I hate to give guaranteed dates but I’m looking at the end of February to some time in mid-March.
One of the behind the scenes things I’m working on is an actual mailing list and author website. Since this is one of the things I’m having to learn about before I actually do, it’s taking a little bit more time than I’d like but it will be live in 2016.
That’s all the promises I’m going to make tonight. Hope everybody has a happy and prosperous new year.
Just a quick update to let everybody know that Copper Visions is live at Amazon.
that Flash of Copper is available in print?
I know, it’s been ages since I’ve talked about, well, anything. I blame work. It seems to eat up way too many hours of the day that would be better spent writing and publishing.
But here it is, in all it’s printed glory:
It’s available directly from Createspace right now and should be on Amazon within the next week.
The Copper Visions manuscript is prepared and currently being emailed to beta readers and editors. A cover has been commissioned. If anybody wants an ARC, let me know. You’ll get a copy hot off the presses.
The Swan Princess was, for me, the story that demanded to be written. It plagued me with half-remembered storylines while I slept, questions in the middle of the day about what happens when a curse goes bad, or hits the wrong person. What happens when an innocent, a true innocent, gets caught up in a feud between people who are jaded and world weary. At what point does selfishness become self-preservation.
The Swan Princess is my answer to some of those questions.
Giselle, the daughter of a rebellious princess, only wants to see her mother happy and do her duty to her country. When she steps in the path of a curse meant for her mother, she’s forced into a life, and a body, she’s never known.
To be free of the curse, Giselle must find love and learn what lives in her own heart. But how is she going to do that as a swan?
It’s available to purchase or borrow on Amazon.
Due to technical difficulties, there will be a new chapter on Thursday this week instead of Wednesday. Sorry for the inconvenience.
