Something Something Dark Side. Something something something complete.

Hey, kids! Book is coming along nicely. Current draft is done, and I am looking for feedback on the first three chapters. Going to be soliciting for CPs on Twitter shortly. Let me know if you’re interested in being a beta reader. Comment below.

Beta readers read as much of the book as they’d like and send me their initial impressions. CPs, I expect some more in-depth, writerly guidance. That’s why I ask other writers to be CPs. We can’t help ourselves. Try to resist the urge to edit as you go! I don’t want anyone editing and not getting paid for it. If you’re good at something, never do it for free. Ha ha! Been guilty of that myself.

In other news, I’m thinking of converting this blog to twice a month or monthly, and then doing a weekly video rather than weekly blog posts. That way you get more bang for your buck, and I don’t have to write something captivating every freakin’ week.

Of course, I could do both. Weekly blog and weekly vlog. That could be fun. Hm…What do you think? Comments welcome!

Whatcha Workin’ On, There?

For the last five to seven years or so, I’ve been working on my first novel “The Emerald Sword.” It’s a fantasy that takes place in a world populated by knights, ladies, Spanish-speaking elves, wild buffalo, and untamed gods. It’s a wild, beautiful world filled with danger and drinking.

Terrwyn Cornraker, a young farmer’s daughter, sets out on a quest to rescue her family from the clutches of an evil sorcerer and his army of skeletons. Along the way, she meets a blue wizard, a shape-shifting wise-crack, and a real, honest-to-gods princess with her own degree.

Things really heat up when she receives the Emerald Sword, Zamurrad, the holy blade of the moon goddess Vora. With Zamurrad in hand, she and her friends go off on an amazing adventure high over the mountains and deep into the treacherous forest of fairies and the even-more treacherous streets of Uto, shining city of the north.

I’m hoping to make “The Emerald Sword” the first in a series of five books, though it might end up a trilogy or quartet instead. Each book would feature on a particular wielder of the Emerald Sword, including the immortal empress Ayesha Khan. I’ve got ideas for the next two books and enough back-story to shake a long stick at.

Let’s get to work!
