A Few Updates

Okay, so I was supposed to get "Incompatible" up last week and somehow the time got away from me (I blame tryptophan?), so basically FAIL.

This week it is coming your way, fo' sho!

I have a lot of excitement planned, actually, something along the lines of this:

Release "Incompatible"

Release "Emergence" (Icarus Helix omnibus #1, episodes 1-5), also in this vein, I intend to make "Cheat", Icarus Helix #1, FREE for December. I'll let you know when the word should start being spread :)

Release "Frigid" (for reals this time :P see the progress I've made on the side??)

I'm looking at what else I could finish, unfortunately "Youth" may be pushed back to a 2012 release.

Also, and this is quite big news - I quit my job. Now, don't go getting the wrong idea. I'm not flush with cash, nor have I become an uber-rich Indie Success overnight. While November has been my best sales since July, I'm still in the range of about FIVE DOLLARS made (heh).

We've shifted some things about personally/financially and my significant other has magnanimously granted me freedom. In exchange for taking care of a majority of the house chores, and creating and publishing as much original content as I can wrap my brain around, I have the ability to write full-time.

So, I am going to take absolute advantage of this situation! I'm setting my writing goal until the end of the year at 50,000 words. That's 10k/week. Next year, I hope to schedule 520,000 words for the year. Maybe even MORE!

Wish me luck, and look forward to new content :)

Well, if you missed it, I've already revealed and released Disappear and Hooded.

They can also be found on Nook: Disappear and Hooded.

Maybe you want to check them out? Maybe you're not into shorts. Hopefully that's not the case because this next is also a short, though quite the creepy one... It will be releasing next week :)

Brace yourselves, for Incompatible...

So... Many... Ideas...

I have so many things lined up to write, they are practically begging me to let them free. I know I should sit down and work through them one at a time and get them done, like they deserve.

So of course I did the most irresponsible thing today and spent my writing time working on a short story I just thought of today :P

With the horrible title of "Futurescope" it clocked in at 1,305 words. Now I have to decide what to do with it, haha. It feels a little too short to publish alone, and quite cliff-hangery in that there should be more to the story. I'm done with it as far as today goes, maybe I will go back to it and fill it out more, but I wrote it almost straight through and it feels like that was where it needed to end.

It's definitely the beginning of... something. I feel like if I publish it, I should do so with a disclaimer that I intend to go back and write more.

Anyone interested in a read?

Ah well, how's everyone else's writing going?

Well would you look at that? Just look at it!

Very, very cool cover for one of my favorite shorts! I'm really proud of this piece ("Hooded"). We're going to upload it today so it should be available soon :)

In the meantime, THE THUNDERSTORM (Krakakow!) Release #1, Disappear is available :) Check it out? (Link in the sidebar as well!)

I know I've been quiet on the blog front recently - trust me, my fingers are tiny nubs from all the tapping on my keyboard I've been doing.

But you know what's coming? If you guessed THE THUNDERSTORM (Krakakow!)... you're right! You can pick up your collapsible flannel bicycle at the front desk. But before you attempt to ride it home, feast your eyes on the first cover reveal...

All thanks and praise to my indefatigable, insatiable, independent cover artist, Jeroen ten Berge!

November, Day 4

So I got a bug up my bum today and decided I wanted to write another short for THE THUNDERSTORM (Krakakow!) I had two major reasons for wanting to write this story.

1. I've been thinking of it for a long time.

2. I needed to work in a different genre than "Youth", at least for a little while! I think my day break on that piece will be good, because I still wrote :)

Thusly, Roadtrap was born.

Writing for today: 3,474 words!

November, Day 3

So, I'll be honest - no writing yesterday. But today I knocked out 2 chapters of "Youth" (which is making me more and more excited), and finally got up to that future point I'd already written, which is great!

So my word count for 11/3 is...

3,122 (1,744 new words)!

Not sure I'll finish anything else before midnight, so I'll go ahead and leave this as today's totals :) How's everyone else doing?

The November Write-a-thon

So I'm really busting my toosh here, trying to be on fire at the keyboard for November. Lots of things I want to do this month, aside from my blitzkrieg of new work in THE THUNDERSTORM (Krakakow!)

Didn't do as much as I thought I did today, but the stuff I did was important to get "Youth" published up.

Word count for today: 1,873! (Not counting edits!)

Coming Soon:


Krakakow! (kow!)
