Chapter 4 tomorrow! You can still catch up with all that you’ve missed at my Spreecast profile. And don’t forget, while I appreciate the live support, if you can’t make it, you can watch it later at the same link.
So back at the beginning of the year I wrote a short story for a writing contest at my local university. It centers around my character Shaundar Sunfall of the Toy Soldier Saga and it is called “Survivor”. I didn’t win, but I then took the story and submitted it to Separate Worlds e-zine, a sci-fi and fantasy magazine that juries its potential stories. Well, they took it up and it appears in the current issue (July/August 2013,) which is available at this link. If you have any problems you can contact the staff; they may take a while to get back to you but they are very accommodating and friendly. This is a Canadian publication that features all manner of excellent speculative fiction and I think it’s well worth the $20 a year subscription or the $5 per issue. And all the writers get paid actual money royalties for these so you are also supporting writing talent that is working to be discovered. Thanks for your support!
I’m beginning the push to try to complete the second novel, “Brothers in Arms,” by November so that I’m free to begin “Sable’s Privateers,” book three, for National Novel Writing Month. You can read it at this link or by clicking on the picture; if you want to read it directly at Scribd you can do so at this link. You’ll have to search for “Chapter Twelve”; for some reason it hasn’t chosen to separate the novel into chapters yet, which I find odd because “A Few Good Elves” was in chapters by this time in the upload. Hope you enjoy it! My publication pace will be stepping up over the next few weeks.
Continuing with my live reading of “A Few Good Elves,” Shaundar takes to the wilds of space for the first time. Hope you can join me! Click on the picture to sign up at Spreecast. And if you need the rest of the story to catch up, the Prologue is here and Chapter 1 is here. If you want to here more about the creation of the world and about Spelljammer in general, this longer version includes an extended Question and Answer period. And if you can’t make the live reading, just click on the URL and you can always watch it later.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
Hi everyone, just a reminder that my live reading of “A Few Good Elves” begins today on Spreecast at 2 pm Pacific Daylight Time. Here’s the link if you’d care to join me (click on the picture.)
