    I'm Still Alive

    Hello, readers!

    It's been a while since y'all have heard from me, and I apologize for that. I really did need this hiatus to plan things out and believe me, I'm hard at work making these next cases the best that I can be. I'm about two-thirds finished with Case 23, and we're probably looking at publishing starting up again by June at the latest.

    On Hiatus

    Hello friends,

    So, just today, I released the finale of Case 21. That's the good news!

    Now for the bad news. I'm afraid that Rising Nightmares has to go on hiatus.

    Harmonycon!

    Hey guys!

    Just wanted to drop this line before I forgot. I won't be posting a chapter this week...because I'll be at HarmonyCon in Texas! Maybe I'll see some of you there!

    Don't worry, we'll be back on track on the 26th, and I'll take some time to write during the downtime.

    Hope that you enjoy the upcoming chapters!

    No Chapters for Two Weeks: Sorry!

    Hiya, readers. I hope you've got your Christmas shopping done and are looking forward for the holidays and the end of 2021!

    I also hope that you're looking forward to the next chapters of Rising Nightmares, and if you are...I have some bad news. I won't be posting a chapter for Christmas Day or New Year's, and the reason for that is twofold.

    Kriegspiel Redux

    Hi all, I come to you with an explanation and an apology.

    As I've mentioned before, I am something of an uber-perfectionist. And I am also very harsh on myself. I often go over my own work and critique things that I feel I could've done better, with the hopes of learning from my mistakes.

What's Been Happening? New Schedule, Raven Hollow 2, and Other Stuff · 12:26am Oct 3rd, 2017

Hello everyone!

It's been quite a while since I posted a blog, and I'm sure most of you have been wondering what's been happening. Well, I'm going to be telling you.

New Schedule for Noire
I've been hard at work at my new job as a corrections officer. I was recently hired for a permanent position (as opposed to the temporary position that I've been working up til now) at a different facility; one of the perks of this position is that I'll be working a five-day work week instead of a six-day work week, and I'll have every Monday and Tuesday off.

Because of this, I have decided to change the schedule for posting chapters for Ponyville Noire. I may decide to delay the chapter for this week, and the next chapter will be posted on Monday the 16th instead of Friday the 13th (how lucky!). Every subsequent chapter will be posted on Monday. I hope you're as excited for this as I am!

Raven Hollow 2
Some of you might be familiar with a short, little-known story of mine that I wrote a year ago: Raven Hollow, a second-person mystery fic with riddles and puzzles for the reader to solve. I had always intended to write a sequel, but never found the time or the energy to focus on it.

But thankfully, it turns out that I didn't have to. One of my closest friends on this site, as well as my long-suffering proofreader and fan,
Magic Step, has written a sequel! Raven Hollow 2: The Riddles of Blackmoor features the ongoing adventures of yourself as Rookie, fledgling private detective, and puzzle enthusiast, piecing together riddles in an attempt to solve a new case and come out from underneath the shadow of the Court of Ravens. If you enjoyed Raven Hollow and like second-story puzzles, mysteries, and puzzles, do yourself and Magic Step a favor and give Raven Hollow 2 a read today!

Art and Discord
Now that the serious stuff is out of the way, let's talk about some fun stuff.

First of all, I wanted to show you a recent commission of mine by AnxiousShadowPetals on DeviantArt of some of the major supporting characters from Ponyville Noire!

Top to bottom, left to right, we have Trace Evidence, Red Herring, Doctor Suunkii, Prowl, and Bumblebee.

I was really excited to get this commission done, and to share it with you! If you want some art, give Anxious a drop by, she's a talented artist and a really, really sweet person!

And finally, I'd like to, once again, invite people to join my Discord server! On the Phillip Finder and Co. server, you'll find a group of good, friendly people to chat with and a place to talk about pretty much anything you want to (within reasonable boundaries, of course). You can toss around story ideas, ask for proofreading and suggestions, share your own work for reviews, and much more! If you're interested, just click the link here to join!

That's all for now. I hope to hear from you soon!

Josiah

Bummer. He's a great character too.
