So, I’ve finished the first draft of Pendragon Resurgent, as of last Thursday. I’ll be starting the edit/revision process tonight. I’m hoping to have a second draft done by Friday, and in the hands of my beta readers.
I’ve also got a good start on that children’s story I’m writing about a stuffed horse becoming real to the little girl that buys it. I’m hoping to have that finished by the end of March, and in the hands of beta readers. I’ve been encouraged to publish it, so I’ll see what it’ll cost for y’all to buy.
After that, Fire and Forge. Before I start the actual story, I’m going to put together an appendix of characters, and it will be posted here as well as published in the book.
I have a few possible projects for next winter–Lost Girls, Cold Fey Fire, and CPA are the ones with names. I have a couple without names, too.
Lost Girls is a story about a vampire with a human roommate that she saved from rape. The human woman is a P.I., and stumbles onto the vampire’s sire’s trail (since he’s a serial rapist/murderer).
Cold Fey Fire is about a teenager aging out of the foster care system, one who has a rather different background–she’s half elf. And there are two courts of high elves, and they’re both after her. Set in modern times.
CPA is not about accountants. The idea was spawned by a button pin I got in college that read Certified Public Assassin. The main character is one. This is very, very much alternate universe/political speculative fiction. I’ve just about finished getting the world worked out, and it is somewhat of what a libertarian’s dream would really be like.
The couple of stories without names don’t even have more than vague outlines yet. I have some written on one (and one of my beta readers has seen advance copies of the chapters I have done), but only a vague idea for the other, which will be a rewrite/fleshing out of one of the short story in the tabs above, marked “True Believer.”
Several options, and I don’t know which one will come easiest; however, each will get written in time.
