Recent Goings-On

Perhaps it was a little overdue, but Sliver of Light is now appearing chapter-by-chapter on a weekly basis at Medium.com. The whole book! As I’ve worked out the schedule it all will wrap up by the first week of October 2019, barring any delays. A full publication of the novel itself will take place shortly…

Sliver of Light @ Medium.com

Read Part One: Chapter One ~ Pinpricks and Mortar Well, after two months of the flu and putting it off because it’s not finished … don’t worry, it’s all “written” in my head, just not on paper. I expect I’ll have it all done by the time you’re reading Part Two. Anyway, what was I…

Monday’s Story: Bearly Skared @ Medium.com

Bearly Skared has been live at Medium.com since, Monday. I wasn’t well enough to update this blog about it, but here I am now… anyway, as I’ve said the next two weeks won’t see any new stories. As for what happens next that’s still up in the air, but I’ll know by the New Year….

Remarkable Objects – Part Three @ Medium.com

The third part of Remarkable Objects – Part Three was posted on schedule, but I have bronchitis at the moment, so getting around to blogging about that has been low on my priorities. Even said, it’s there, so now’s the time to find out what happens next… Penny gave Aaran about a minute to clear…

The good news is…

Gutenberg is actually getting easier to use. Feedback will do that. Feedback during the writing process, however, is another story. I suggest that while you’re writing, just do it. Don’t let anyone else actively tell you how to tell your story. Instead read a lot and pay plenty of attention and over time you’ll understand…

“Skitcher” now live @ Medium.com

Right out of the gate on schedule, “Skitcher” is available to read free at Medium.com! Details, right? If you enjoyed last week’s story (or any of them, thus far), here’s another! Here’s a sample: The hoots and hollers of the crowd thinned, and behind blasting plate was muted entirely. No one around — who could smell — minded the…

If I had to guess…

So Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is a hard sell. Given its subject matter, I’m not surprised. Maybe a little disappointed… but I approached that work with no less dedication than any other. Thankfully, I won’t be publishing anything that gritty in the future. No promises, though. My short stories can get a little real, in…

Story Schedule: Good To Go

I’ve prepared my Medium story schedule and laid everything out until the middle of December. By that point I’ll know what put more attention into. I’d rather not post stories that don’t have natural endings. So, every Monday there will be a new short story – and one in four parts – posted first thing…

Minor Edits

Soft Hearts, Hard Memories hasn’t been … shall I say, popular … though it does appear to enjoy interest among a certain demographic… what it needed was some editing. Just some typographical stuff here and there. That’s one of the challenges of being ones own editor and publisher. Not that I expect my work to…

Soft Hearts, Hard Memories now available at Smashwords!

As promised, a physical edition novel will be available very, very shortly thanks to Amazon… but it won’t be the first volume of the Greatshale Chronicles. No sir. It will be, quite out of the blue, Soft Hearts, Hard Memories, a heavily edited and revamped novel originally entitled Bold Curves. It was Aaran’s big foray…
