It’s a Tuesday! Want a teaser? ‘Course you do! This time, we’re looking at the long-awaited sequel to Subject 5691:Petri, Draxton’s Destiny. This book fought me every step of the way. At times I hated it, and once the rewrite was completed, I hated it even more. Then I let it sit, did another editing pass, and discovered it wasn’t as crappy as I’d feared. Here’s a hint of the final manuscript.Continue reading “Teaser Tuesday -Draxton’s Destiny”
In between final tweaks to Brienne and Draxton, building a very tiny diorama (check my Instagram for the finished project), screwing up a post here forcing me to repost it, and choosing the couple for Izabel, I carved out a moment for a tiny piece of flash fiction. The prompt came from the same location as the others and isn’t a very happy story. So, if you’re not in a good place right now, maybe wait until you’re ready for it.Continue reading “(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – Summer, 2016”

Anyway, I’m bringing back the old Teaser Tuesday series to spotlight on the things in progress, things already released, and maybe just things. Who knows? Brienne has survived the final editing pass without me loathing it, so I call it a win! It’s still a short novel, at just under 54K words, but slightly longer than Shoba which was in the murky “too long to be a novella but almost too short to be a novel” zone.Continue reading “Teaser Tuesday -Wolves of Sorrow: Brienne”
Another Friday, another short snippet of fiction. Since the last one, I’ve had a small panic when I thought I’d lost almost half of a manuscript’s edits in a file save error, ran through that one with another more thorough editing pass, and did a third pass through Draxton. I’m really happy where both those are sitting.
The Application is based on the image below with the prompt “Where is this house? Who lives here? Is it old with a history or new?” Again, I didn’t stay perfectly true to the prompt. Had I gone into who lived there, it wouldn’t have been a flash short at all, but a potential short story. Besides, this leaves a lot up to the interpretation of the reader.Continue reading “(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Application”
