Work has been really busy. All that work doesn't leave much time for writing. And when it does, I usually don't feel like writing. Suffice to say it's a slow go. I think the new year will bring a little relief, but we'll see.
Anyway, I've just started Chapter 4, so I thought I'd go ahead and release Chapter 1.
Thought I'd share some early first thoughts to my zombie sequel:
Emma Somewhere in the Pacific “I’m certain, see for yourself,” Parris said, handing the binoculars to Liam. Pressing them against his face, he stared out across the blue water towards the east. If he strained hard and squinted his eyes just so, he could make out the cliffs. “How did you see that?” Liam asked. “What?” he said with a grin, “I’ve got sailor’s eyes.” “And a mouth to match…
The Blighted has been re-edited to improve the prose and correct any mistakes. The main reason for my doing this was to re-familiarize myself with the storyline. With this completed, I hope to start on Part 2. Things may change, but I expect it to pick up somewhere around Baton Rouge.
Hopefully life will be such that writing can be wedged into the gaps at least semi-regularly.
For those who don't know already, OJD's house burned down: http://orangejeepdad.blogspot.com/
Ryan has posted about it and Mr. Rawles ran a fundraiser as well.
I don't know OJD, but I feel for him. If you buy a book of mine between now and 11/16/13, send me a screenshot of the Amazon purchase. I'll donate the full proceeds of my royalties to OJD. Probably won't be much, but it's something. That's what we're supposed to do, right?&nbs
Work's been very busy lately - busier than it's been in a long while. Probably 4 months ago, I came off a long-term project (fully allocated for 2 years) and into a deep lull (which was busy in fits and spurts since I would be writing proposals and building estimates), before being deluged with new projects starting about a month ago. Lot's of smaller projects is much more stressful than 1 large one. Plus we're understaffed and it's hard to find support personnel as the rest of
Now available: The Border Marches, by Archer Garrett
Book 5 in the Western Front Series
Darkness has descended upon the world; the fabric of society has been torn asunder, sovereign nations collapse under their own burdens, once stable governments are ushered into revolution and allies of old are thrust into war. The tentacles of darkness have inevitably traveled across the Atlantic and are now tightening their grip on the American republic.
Also, an update: With 26,000 words complete, this book has been a slower go for me. Mental fortitude is a finite thing. Work's been more demanding, so I come home with less inclination to write. Right now, I'm 75-80% complete, with just a few more chapters to go. I still expect to finish this month. Won't be long yet.
That's how long its been since I first published the Western Front. I think I actually started writing in April or May. It's been pretty exciting, this first year of writing. I started out naive, not having ever written any fiction before and being a new name in our little community.
Fortunately, I've been blessed.
You guys hung with me and overlooked a lot of mistakes and poorly wr
I'm about a third of the way through the Border Marches. It is looking to be 25-35K words, which puts it a couple chapters longer than Crescent City. I mean to reconcile Hayden and the story in Crescent City with Jake's clan as they move forward with life after the Nine of the North. I plan to release Chapter 2 of the Border Marches this Friday and continue releasing chapters weekly. Until then, Chapter 1 is available HERE.
