    Back to work...

    At the office following vacation, where I continue to man the fort pretty much alone while everyone else works from home, and on Feathered Hearts, where I have decided to do one more all-new transition chapter before resuming work on editing the original chapters. The objective is to merge the new storyline back into the original and smooth the way forward. As for why, when I thought about

    New M-rated Story by AJ_Aficionado...

    For the Summer Sin Celebration. For those of you unfamiliar with it, participating in it means you’re basically part of a story exchange; given an assignment to write someone else’s story request and keep it of limited length. This was the result of AJA’s assignment:

    Book 3, Chapter 6 of Into the Storm launches tonight...

    It’s amazing what a little time off can do for your creative juices. I have a couple rounds of editing and need to make two or three minor maps in Photoshop before it’s fully ready, but ready it will be for launch this evening. Hopefully that will be a good way for readers to start their weekends.

    Next Firefly chapter underway

    After a work-enforced two weeks away from writing, I’m finally on a weeklong vacation, and the result has been rapid progress on the next Firefly chapter, now at 6500 words and growing quickly. Though I’m uncertain of its final length, there’s a very good chance you’re going to see it launched on or before the weekend. Prereaders, stand by.

    At long last...

    I have an actual vacation on the way after a full month of extra hours. It’s been approved for next week, and I plan to do little but decompress and catch up on chores. Actual travel will be limited to maybe a day at the beach.

Feathered Hearts - Chapter 8 launches Sunday · 11:10pm April 17th

In the end, it all came to me quickly, as did the prereads, and thus I'm releasing it tomorrow—once I've done a few more editing passes and am fully satisfied with it, that is. It's normally a very good sign when I find the writing easy, and my prereaders thus far—AJ_Aficionado, SIlentwoodfire, and Silverblade5—have all said they enjoyed the chapter, which has also sparked no end of discussion from them regarding what should come after.

The new chapter, tentatively titled Expulsion or Asylum, would consist of two parts—a very serious opening section as the fate of Tara and Dana are debated by the two ambassadors, resulting in a surprising resolution, followed by a more lighthearted second half of the chapter as our intrepid human and griffon heroes decide it's time to celebrate and do so with some interesting food and an imported keg of Sweet Apple Acres cider.

It's that last that will be key to the events to follow. In my previous blog, I asked if readers were interested in some early adult action, and the answer was a resounding yes. So the last half of this coming chapter will set it up along with the future launch of an M-rated side story; one whose first story arc would take place immediately following the end of the coming chapter.

Through various machinations, it would (mostly) not be remembered after, and yes, I would have a reasonable explanation as to how it all happened, as discussed in the previous blog as well: The Ibexians would be to credit/blame for the events to follow, and lest people think I'm pulling a Star Trek/Breen on people by continually referencing them without showing them, we would indeed get to meet them later as their machinations were revealed by a single mistake they made out of ignorance of human technology.

But in that context, there will be plenty of things I can do, and I'm happy to say it's already sparked a great deal of suggestions by my prereaders as to what can/should/shouldn't happen. I won't say more for now, but there's a LOT I can do within the parameters I'm setting up without running afoul of personalities or existing desires.

But that's for later, and more information will follow when I start writing it. For now, expect the new chapter to launch tomorrow afternoon or evening, and hope everyone enjoys!

Fortrakt continues to be the most enjoyable character in the story.

God, I can't wait for that M-rated chapter!

Ohboy

It's always interesting when another race/nation/culture is brought into a story. I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

As much as I torment him, I really do like him.

God, I can't wait for that M-rated chapter!

You and everyone else. Seems like I'll have to deliver it sooner rather than later!
