I am going to go see SO many bands at bars.
Not gonna lie: SHADOW AND BONE pushes some buttons. I like the medieval style as well as the next guy, but getting some saber-and-sorcery black powder fantasy going works for me. Just as long as it does not suck.
More power to him, though. Keanu wants to go metal, well, it’s a free country. He ain’t doing anything I wouldn’t be doing. When you’re in your fifties and enjoying a cinematic renaissance as an action star, why the hell not have fun with whatever you feel like having fun with?
Just my reminder: I have a Patreon for my SFF and horror fiction/gaming material, and 90% of it is going right back into the publishing stuff*. At this stage of the process, the more monthly income I have, the faster I can pay for editors and artists and cover art. Which means the more books I can do a year. That is the way things are.
So, tell your friends! Heck, tell your enemies if you think you can convince them to pony up. I ain’t proud.
*The other 10% goes to the St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth, and Families; specifically, their Teen Mother-Baby Program.
I probably shouldn’t put up snippets for this one, because it’s for a contest and everything. I can say that I’m at 1200 words, so it’s 15% finished! I should probably outline it at this point: I have a general idea what’s going on, but I need to lock it down. This is, after all, for a contest.
I don’t know what’s more interesting: that there are marble races of this kind and complexity, or that I watched the whole thing, impressed. There was a lot of work put into this. A lot of work.
Blame Sandra and Woo.
I shall revise this damned thing this weekend. I have spoken.Continue reading 02/25/21 (and Last) Snippet, GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND.
Just to show that I’m actually working on this for the Baen contest thing.Continue reading Beginning of DUNGEON CLEANING.
