Um, oops, that was supposed to be 'Release' - It's almost ready to release! The story, that is, not the beast within. Stuck with that one. I've been doing the final editing. Finished the big picture stuff, the flow-lines, the through-lines, the story-lines. Done the character (needs some polish there, but I'll think her through … Continue reading Ready to Rumble
Scene 1: Equine Neophyte of the Blood Desert The room buzzed with an undertone of Wild Magic. It waited in the walls, it sang in tones of sunshine and gentle winds.

Remember the last post? The disaster of computer proportions? Yep, that one. Still waiting to get back to work, so what do I do ('cos a writer can't do ... the 'not' writing thing)? I put an idea in my head and fiddle with it. I Walk the circle of the house (some people call … Continue reading A State of Pace
Published last night, after a mighty effort, Agoness: The rules of kingship have been lost with lack of care and the passing of time, but when the Prince retaliates against the Daughter of the Holy when she refuses to marry him, and ensures she is sentenced to death by pyre for refusing him so publicly, … Continue reading Agoness
