Prolific writing pace of Feathered Hearts continues — here's a teaser · 2:51pm May 12th

Skipping ahead a little, and thanks in part to a sleepless night when I decided there was no use trying and got up at 4am to spend the next several hours writing, I’ve completed the next main story chapter, which takes place two days following the events described in the M-rated side story.

T-minus 10 days... · 8:39pm May 14th

To the Memorial Day launch of Feathered Hearts: Eros, and I now have no less than six side story chapters ready to go--which was my targeted minimum for launch, along with a new main story chapter to help direct readers to the side story. I have until then to finish more side story chapters, and I will indeed target having 1-2 more chapters finished in time. This should mean there's plenty of material available for both the initial launch of ~3 chapters, and for daily releases of

Question for Readers - work on Feathered Hearts: Eros underway · 6:07pm April 21st

It had not been my intention to immediately start work on the M-rated side story to Feathered Hearts, following in the wingbeats of Demon Eyes Laharl's own M-rated side story Feathered Heart: Preening. But my prereaders, to say nothing of my very muse, all but demand it, and it does seem to be coming to me (no pun intended) fairly readily right now. There are just too many ideas for scenes I want to get down, and my production team has been full of thoughts and ideas for this as

It's a bit embarrassing... · 7:20pm May 22nd

But it turns out that all this time I was wrong about Memorial Day being May 24th. It's actually May 31st. I had it in my head for some reason that Memorial Day can't fall on the last day of May, but I was wrong. And it's a good thing I said something to my coworkers about it on Friday, or I would have stayed home on Monday without thinking and been essentially AWOL. :facehoof:

Feathered Hearts - 10 side story chapters finished! · 3:10pm May 24th

The latest chapter I was writing reached close to 9000 words by the time I was through with it, meaning it was big enough to be broken in two. It's now with prereaders, and this means that the US Marine M14 Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) belonging to the side story is now loaded with the full ten-round magazine I sought before launch.

Weekly update on Feathered Hearts main and side stories · 2:16pm May 9th

Well, I've been a busy boi. In the past week, I have written a whopping 16,000 words on both the main and side story, though mostly the side story. I've worked on two chapters for that, with a brand new one completed at 11k words. Though at that length, there's a good chance I'm going to break it in two, and then turn what it describes into a three-chapter arc. That would give me no less than five finished side story chapters, and put us on track for a Memorial Day weekend (late May) publish

Make that 8 side story chapters + Teaser · 1:29pm May 16th

Though the latest two are a bit of a cheat as I realized it would be better to break up a couple earlier chapters. In one case, I did it to bookend it around an important and very adult three-chapter arc regarding our surprise first human/griffon pairing. That involved fleshing out the broken-off chapter a bit more, as I'm trying to keep individual chapters to no more than around 5k-6k words. I then also decided to break up an early chapter that was well over 8000 words, putting some

There are no brakes on the Feathered Hearts: Eros train · 5:09pm May 1st

With now three full chapters written and a fourth starting production shortly, 20k words are already down on the side story in under two weeks. My muse has grabbed hold of this thing and will not let go. What sucks is that I have to wait to release the ready chapters until I've got the entire story arc written (6-8 chapters?) and then write the next chapter of the regular Feathered Hearts story to link to it.

'Twas the night before FH:E release... · 2:00am May 31st

And it would be a lie to say I don't feel some anxiety over it. Still some work to do, from writing the Author's Notes to the introductory blog. It's been a six-week journey coming to an end tomorrow... or maybe it's only beginning. How, I can't help but wonder, will it be received? You just never know. It might be a huge hit--you don't see much griffon/human action on site, so this could certainly be filling a neglected niche--or it could end up flopping and doing damage to the main story in

My Muse is Loose - Feathered Hearts side story well underway · 3:19pm April 26th

I completed the first two side story chapters in under a week, typing in the 12,000 words between them like rapid-fire from a Marine M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) on my keyboard.

Feathered Hearts: Eros - Introduction · 1:38pm May 31st

Greetings to all readers, both new and returning! Welcome to Feathered Hearts: Eros. It's become of a bit of a habit for me to write introductory blogs for new stories, especially ones I worry might cause some eyebrows to raise for one reason or another. This is very much one of them, given it's based on what was originally another author's story.

Who is the author and what is the story?

Feathered Hearts: Eros - release week complete! What would readers like me to work on next...? · 3:44pm June 7th

The release of Feathered Hearts: Eros is complete, and I generally couldn't be happier with how it went. The Memorial Day launch of five chapters followed by five more at the rate of one per day worked--the story not only featured after an hour in fourth place and stayed on the board for most of the day, but it pulled a slew of new readers onto the main story as well, taking it from 66 likes to knocking on the door of 100 while picking up a whopping 90 new tracks. That alone makes

T-minus 60 hours to Feathered Hearts: Eros launch... · 12:35am May 29th

It will launch when I get up on Memorial Day, which is Monday morning (a three day weekend! :yay:). First full editing pass on the ten chapter side story is complete, and a second one is planned. I also need to flesh out the final two chapters by about 1000 more words to bring them up to what I consider ideal clopfic chapter length. That aside, I've already got the story cover prepared:
