Nothing Lasts

This time, as Wilom approached the gates, there were more guards than usual. This was hardly uncommon – returning patrols often stopped by the gates to talk – so it wasn’t until Wilom got much closer that he realised that they were not chatting, and in fact, that they were all looking at him.

Hi all! Quick update from me!

I’m running pretty flat-out for the convention, but as I said before, I need to make some changes to how things are run. My e-books are about to get removed from sale for a day or two, but they should be back up with all relevant information on the site changed later this week.

Thanks for being patient and understanding!

Update:
As of 4th August 2019, e-books are now up again and available. My Support Page has now been updated with the details.

To Whom it May Concern

Wilom went to visit the construction site with Vanda every day for a while – with the Pathways, it was a matter of minutes to get to and from the site every morning. Rickart had thoroughly taken over the site planning, and was so obviously competent at it that Wilom honestly felt a little useless. Instead, he joined Inushi’s heavy lifting crew. Wilom realised with a start that he’d never seen a soldier in any sort of action – he’d only ever seen them either sitting on the boat, or waiting idly. Inushi was wearing only her singlet and trousers, bracing a plank of wood upright as a few men and women up on the scaffolding got themselves in place to pull it up. Wilom admired her. She was efficient and capable, and had a knack for being part of a team while she led it. Continue reading

An Update

I realise this isn’t going to be particularly interesting, but I’ll try and keep this short, for those who are interested.

Where am I going?
This year, I’m doing a couple of conventions. I’ll be in Dublin from the 15th to the 20th of August for Worldcon. If anyone will be there, you can find me at the Creator’s Alley on the 16th – I’ll provide some details of exactly which table is mine closer to the date. Otherwise, I’ll just be generally around the convention — if you spot me, come say hi!

I’ll also be at Conflux convention in Canberra, from the 5th to the 7th of October. More details on where I’ll be when will be posted as I get them.

What am I doing?
I have a few projects in the works at the moment. I’ve been working on the Edit Pass Live project still (though I know I haven’t updated that in a while). I’ll have a little teaser of that project available at the conventions, if people are interested in that. It’s a sneak preview exclusive to those conventions, so you’ll have to drop by if you want a piece of that.

The second section of The Ferryman’s Apprentice is getting much closer to being released as an e-book and hard copy — there’s only a few more things to finish off. I hope to be able to provide concrete publication dates sometime next month.

The blog version of The Ferryman’s Apprentice has been trucking along, but as many may know or have guessed, the third season is reaching its end and the fourth is the last season, the big finale, the wrap-up. If anyone has ideas for things they’d like to see in the final between-season content, shout out to me on the blog or on Twitter — I’d love to see if there are any final tidbits of behind the scenes information or things about secondary characters that people really want me to publish before the whole story is over.

The next serial is also in the works, and I’ll be releasing more details about that once the fourth Ferryman’s Apprentice season is starting to draw to a close. Watch this space!

Calls to Action
I’m also going to take a second here to put on the Marketing Hat real quick. Up in the top of the page, there’s a handy-dandy “Support Me” button. If you’re interested in me or what I do, I urge you to go and visit that page. It has such useful information as my Patreon page, info on the best places to get the books that have been released, and otherwise how to support me.

You can also get in touch with me on Twitter, where I am most active on social media.

Marketing hat off now. That’s what’s going on with me for the rest of the year. I’ll update folks with more details when I have them.

Have a great day!

The Approach of Finality

Wilom regretted letting Vanda talk him into see the ferryman, but he didn’t turn her away when she came to collect him. He’d meant what he said. Vanda shouldn’t need to bully him into facing his problems like an adult, and he needed very badly to be done with this particular problem. Continue reading

Narrative Meaning Under External Influence

I was at Continuum Convention all weekend, so I’ve been talking to people about all sorts of things literary and interpretation-related. And then I got home, had my traditional bout of con flu, and therefore played games for a couple of days. So hold onto your hats, kids, this is an esoteric one. Continue reading

Enjoying the Moment

Vanda and Wilom stood overlooking the construction site. Vicdra, true to his word, had managed to get people in to help him. He’d said they were mostly those they’d already found homes for but were unhappy for one reason and another. A few of them were under investigation or the threat of investigation. Some of them had been running from place to place to avoid being caught. Just enough ID to keep them on the move. Continue reading
