Fantasy writer who also dabbles in SF and horror. Most of my stuff is set in one of a handful of continuities.
So, it's been a while since I posted about my assorted ongoing projects-- might as well do something about that now!

I'm currently around 1/2 way through a short story titled Golems by Kefira. This one covers some of Stoneseed's implications, as well as going into the topic of Golemancy from another (more valid) angle.

After that will be another short story-- this one currently lacking a title. It'll be a dark comedy-- actually, I may as well share the first line.

"Ian Gore was used to walking into rooms with dead bodies in them; he was a coroner, after all. What bothered him was that this was a hotel room."

Odds are that one won't take more than a day or two.

Then it'll probably be a while before I actually post anything. My other ongoing projects are both novel-length: Whim is a YA(-ish) novel about adulthood that takes place in a brand new setting. I'm about 32,000 words into this so far, and it's... maybe 1/4 of the way done? We'll see.

The other novel that I'm working on is the 6th in my usual fantasy setting, titled In the Company of Nightmares. It covers a lot of ground, and answers several long-standing questions about the world as a whole.

If any of y'all want a sneak preview of either of these novels, fell free to ask!

Oh, and one final note: the edited version of White Hart is temporarily on hold until I've finished work on Whim. With a little luck, that'll be done by the end of the year.

Thanks! (oh, while I remember, did I ever recommend Connie Willis to you? I just finished Bellwether (one of her lesser known novels) the other day. that and To Say Nothing of the Dog both have kind of a Dirk Gently sense of humour to them? and they're both like, mind-blowingly well researched.

Well, you see, I remembered that I still had requests to complete on this account, so I thought I'd complete them before deactivating. :shrug:
