It's been a while since I've been here. The past few months have been rather hectic for me. Fortunately, things are finally starting to slow down a bit. I'm settling into the new rhythm of my life. I don't have as much time to work on this as I used to, but I am starting … Continue reading Back from the Dead (or at least a long break)
It's coming, I promise. I am working on it. I wrote a couple pages just the other day. Then I deleted them because I didn't like them. Between that and all the interruptions, it's taking more time than I'd like. Of course, it would help if people would stop accidentally setting their kitchen on fire … Continue reading I really am working on chapter 6
At the outset of my EMT course, I was hopeful that I'd be able to keep writing at a rate of a couple chapters each month. That didn't work out so well last month. While I'm well into getting Chapter 6 written, it's far from finished. The EMT course is the number-one factor here. In … Continue reading The Tortoise or the Hare
When I launched this blog, I uploaded a photo I took of the total lunar eclipse from April of 2014. That eclipse image has played a significant influence in shaping my thoughts and ideas for the book Shadow and Light. So with another spectacular lunar eclipse taking place last night, you can guess what I … Continue reading The Lunar Eclipse
(Chapter 04) The road grew steep as it approached the pass into the Battle Plain. Nikka lost count of how many times they switched back, zig-zagging their way slowly up the steep mountainside. The air was cooler and dry, at least compared to what Nikka was accustomed to. Looking back, Nikka couldn’t even see her … Continue reading Shadow and Light – Chapter 05
I finally got it done. Chapter five of Shadow and Light is now available to read on Patreon for my supporters. The rest of you will have to wait until Thursday before you can read it.
I know it's been a while since I've posted an update. Life has been... well, busy. I warned you that my EMT class would take some time from writing, and it has. A lot. Mountains of bureaucratic paperwork have been moved to register with the appropriate state and federal agencies. I'm now officially and legally … Continue reading Writing in Slow Motion
This past week has been incredibly busy. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to keep writing at the top of the priority tree, so Chapter 5 is taking longer than I'd like. The good news is, I'm almost done with the mountains of red-tape associated with my EMT class. So far, I'm enjoying the class. It's … Continue reading Slow and steady wins the race, right?
(Chapter 03) Sleep never came to Nikka. She spent the night staring out the open window, her mind fixed on the distant spire in the center of the Battle Plain. There was something special about it, something that called to her. She needed to see it. The horns began to blow as the first pre-dawn … Continue reading Shadow and Light – Chapter 04
That's right! I just put Shadow and Light chapter 4 up on my Patreon site. That means you can go read it right now! Well, if you're supporting the book you can. The rest of you will just have to wait until Monday. That's a whole weekend away. The torture!
