Announcement and Rant · 8:20pm
For better or for worse, Dissonance is coming out in June. I've worked out everything behind the scenes, and I've a bank of chapters to publish, so the war machine is officially in motion. As for when in June, that's up to when the Cover is done, and potentially by who. I'll elaborate on that when appropriate, if ever; at present I will answer no questions concerning the Saga. Rest assured, though, that the winter stagnation of my writing career is slowly peeling away.
Given this! I do have a tidbit of content for you, a new short in my "Apologies" portfolio. Its cover image is the one Denial expertly crafted for me at the top of the post, and it's a request I addressed quite a while back. It's a cute little shapshot, and I think you'll enjoy it—but I must ask you all a favor, first. I would like your help. Though I am no titan, and I never really have been, I like to think that I can rely on my followers for a boost, when appropriate. Tangentially, I have a plan.
First thing in the morning on Saturday, May 18th, which is typically 8:00 AM EST for me (curse my biological alarm clock), I will submit my newest story to moderation. I'm letting you all know in advance because, with your help, I'd like some... propulsion, as it were. Moderation should be finished at sometime that day, and if you see it, you can give it a read and judge it appropriately. What's important, to me, is that you read it and enjoy it—that is my goal, after all, as a writer, and always has been/will be. If you do happen to be available that day, though, could you perhaps, I dunno... give me an upvote?
It would mean the world to me, after so long a stagnation, to be put back into the spotlight. Of course, this doesn't come without reward. I have another story in the works, one that has a much better premise, and is funnier to boot. So, I'll cut to the point: If I get into the featured box before the end of the weekend, I will publish my second story the same time next week. Exciting, right? I'm excited. And I damn well mean that promise; nothing means more to me than upholding my word. I don't make excuses, not for something as important to me as ponyfic.
So! I'll reiterate that if any of you have a short request for me, I'd be happy to write it. Today, though, if you want to continue, I have something to get off my chest. Read on if you like, though there is mild French ahead.Read More
