It’s been a while since the last general update, so I decided Tuesday needed one. (After all, what else has Tuesday got going for it?)
To start with, the Hunter Fan Art Contest has been running for almost two weeks now and has one week to go. (the deadline has been extended to Monday) I’m dying to see what you guys have come up with and I really hope all of you entered! If you haven’t entered yet, go sign up now!!! Seven days is PLENTY of time to work up some clever fan art, right?
On the story front, those of you who get my newsletter know that the 1st quarter of the sci-fi novella ‘Thundercrest’ is about for beta-readers. It’s a retro-historical science-fiction story, but it’s easier to just call it science-fiction. It should be going out at the beginning of May, but that’s tentative. As you can see if you take a closer look at that notebook, my handwriting is really terrible, so transferring it to the computer is a little harder than you’d think. The going is steady, though, so if you’re on my newsletter mailing list, sign up to beta-read ‘Thundercrest’. (That’s only if you like reading adventure, sci-fi, historical fiction, and action. Obviously.)
Also, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I began working on an old WIP again recently. “Breaking Empire”, my second foray into epic fantasy, is back under way for the first time in months. If my luck (and enthusiasm) holds out, you should be getting a few sneak peeks into the world of “Breaking Empire” sometime soon. I’ve kept this story very much under my hat, so to speak. However, I and everyone who’s commented on the excerpted prologue (as well as my beta reader, who’s read the first 2 chapters) think the plot has tons of potential. The biggest problem with it is the author; I’m terrified I won’t do it the justice it deserved. That fear won’t stop me, of course, but it is a definite factor in the time it will take to finish!
