Chapter 16 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 4:20am Sep 26th, 2017

Well, kind of flew through this chapter, but hope it has some nice, emotional moments to it.

I did struggle with it for a bit, because I felt it could have become very 'talky.' Because of that (and fearing it'd easily go over 10,000 words), I decided to 'streamline' the chapter, with summaries, and giving characters dialogue, when I felt it was necessary.

Chapter 14 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 9:32pm Aug 13th, 2017

Whew! Was gonna wait until the middle of the week, but was too excited to keep this in any longer!

This was one of those 'tentpole' chapters that was like the dessert at the end of another meal-course. I had to 'slog' through some character development and not-so-hot storytelling to get here, but I'm pretty sure it'll find some fans and get some cheers (though I'm sure I'll be met with plenty of 'meh's.').

Chapter 3 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 8:41am Jan 8th, 2017

Well, was going to do some more rough drafting on an upcoming chapter this weekend, but hit a bit of a rocky outcrop. So, what is a guy to do? Review/revise/release Chapter 3!

Originally, I was going to do a new chapter every 3 weeks, but if I keep with the schedule I have now, I will keep up a bi-weekly release.

Chapter 6 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 7:00pm Feb 25th, 2017

Yeah, it kind of broke my 2-week cycle of releasing a new chapter, but given that I've had a few extra thumbs up in the ratings area (and my first thumbs-down since the early days of the story), I decided to put this chapter up, a few days beforehand!

I will admit that when it comes to writing these stories, the word count gets drastically different when bringing the document into Fimfic's toolset.

Extra-special thanks to Coral Leaf and Hyperstorm_H for the new cover art! · 4:21am Jan 31st, 2017

If some of you have seen the early comments on my story, "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf," you might have seen a number of people were horrified and disgusted with the art I had originally put together for the cover.

However, while a scant few seemed to feel the first chapter had potential, my first attempts at anthro-pony art had some assuming that the artwork would horrify and turn people away. So, I gave into the criticism, and removed it.

Chapter 5 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up, and a few other words. · 3:01am Feb 14th, 2017

Well, after an extra-long Birthday week last week (with a day spent cleaning, a workplace party with drinks and frivolity, and a party with friends over the weekend), I finally got finished setting up and sending out Chapter 5!

Given the few words I've seen so far (and the added 'thumbs up' and 'favorites'), it looks like I'm actually doing okay with this story.

Plus, the 'energy drink buzz' of seeing the positives, has got my brain functioning again on how to 'spice up' Chapter 7!

Chapter 10 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 4:21pm May 29th, 2017

Well, we finally reached the double-digits, and a rather important turning-point chapter with this one.

Most of this was written on a trip I took a few weeks ago, though as I've gotten this far in the story, it can be kind of difficult to get my thoughts and feelings out regarding what is coming up.

Things are coming, that I think even I am wondering if I can pull off...

Chapter 17 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is still coming · 5:10pm Oct 14th, 2017

For those wondering, yes, I am still working on the story.

I actually went to Manhattan for 4 days last week, and have been rolling the experience around in my head, to see if I could work some of what I saw into the next chapter.

I'm hoping to have something in the next week, but we're still on course.

Chapter 8 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 11:02pm Apr 30th, 2017

Well, finally got off my caboose and got this chapter proofread, and released!

As explained before, after the rather lukewarm reception to the last chapter (which marks a turning point in the story!), I got a bit low, though thanks to Dommy128 and AppleOrPie for their little pep-talks.

Chapter 7 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up, and an update! · 5:58pm Mar 18th, 2017

Well, sound of the gun, but I got Chapter 7 up before I have to take off for a Friend's party today!

This is a pretty crucial chapter, despite it seeming to be a lot of nothing...but there definitely is something there.

I can't tell much more than that, as I want those who are my avid readers, to give this chapter (the longest one yet!), a read.

Wow I can't believe we made it to 200 followers I wonder how we should celebrate it. I know a small little contest, It won't be like the last one but this one will be fun, send me an idea you might have for a story it must be something within 5,000 words or less, I'm willing to do any story but the best story will win the contest. It'll be a small bit before i can release it but I'll work on it as soon as i can. It can even be a sequel of a story i've done if you want.

Ch 4 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 6:49am Jan 25th, 2017

Well, thought I probably would have put this out earlier this evening, but found I had some touch-ups to make that needed to be made!

I think this chapter will really be a fun one for people to read. We're moving a bit beyond the character set-ups, and more into the 'meat' of the story.

Chapter 18 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 1:46am Nov 3rd, 2017

Well, a little late, but I was running behind this morning.

Got Chapter 18 put up before going out the door this morning. Hoping there'll be some who like it. did consider folding it into the wedding chapter, but figured a 10000+ word chapter at this stage, might be a bit too much.

So yep, this chapter leads up to the big day, next chapter tells us what goes on there...and from there on out...I'm keeping quiet for now.

Chapter 20 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 3:49am Dec 5th, 2017

Well, we finally made it! Took over a year and some change, but here we are!

This was another chapter that I thought would be a breeze, but ended up twisting-and-turning in the wind, as I struggled to keep it on track. It's kind of like a 'kitchen sink' chapter, what with all the talking, and description, and much more going on!

Officially, this is the final chapter of this story.

Chapter 19 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 6:13am Nov 21st, 2017

Whew! A little after midnight, but better late than never!

Get ready for a super-sized chapter...most likely, the last super-sized chapter this story will have!

Eeyup, we're winding down this puppy, with a chapter I've had on my mind for awhile now. I'd say more, but with over 11,000 words, I'll let Chapter 19 speak for itself.

So, what are you waiting for? Give it a read!

Chapter 9 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 5:00pm May 12th, 2017

Phew! Got that up before my 4-day weekend started!

The month of April is kind of a strange month for me. I was telling my Dad on the phone a few weeks ago, that it's felt that way since I was a teen, and I think it has to do with April being that 'transitional' month, between Winter and Spring.
