Into the Storm: The Flight of Firefly - Update · 3:47pm Aug 11th, 2017

Progress has slowed down of late as I've shifted focus to The Lawyer and The Unicorn. I know I said I was looking at a mid-month release, but I think at this point it would be far more appropriate to launch the next book on September 1st, which is date the war begins in the story... and when WWII began, for that matter. Yes, that's more than a coincidence.

Updated Part 4 of Firefly posted · 5:46pm Nov 15th, 2015

New dialogue, new expansions, a new scene, and new musical accompaniments thanks to James CyberLink. I simply felt that the original version of the chapter had two issues--first, Windshear's explanations weren't quite believable, and second, there was little explanation of how Firefly bridged the gap between not being able to beat Windshear and then doing so. I wanted to explore her training in more depth and make clear that Firefly is very much Windshear's creation, that her skill as a warrior

New Review of Before the Storm: The Rise of Firefly · 1:43pm Dec 7th, 2017

A big thank-you goes out to https://www.fimfiction.net/user/14342/xTSGx for a new, favorable and very detailed review of Rise of Firefly, though I have to say that opening picture really makes me grimace. Anyway, I would like to offer some very public thanks to the reviewer, as I greatly appreciate the thought and care that went into this... to say nothing of the new likes and faves I picked up on both the story and the sequel as a result!

Feeling a bit better... · 1:07am Mar 16th, 2016

Work is still a pain, but a bit more manageable right now. I regret my current moodiness is still no good to write clop, but it's perfect for writing a war fic. As a result, change of plans--I've begun work on a new Rise of Firefly chapter that will be up next. Currently 6,000 words and growing; look for it to be posted this weekend or sooner, depending, so prereaders stand by. It just notched its 100th like, so it seems appropriate to release a new chapter in commemoration as well.

T-minus 1 week to Flight of Firefly launch... · 5:17pm Aug 26th, 2017

Prologue plus four full chapters are ready as well as two bonus chapters containing the Gryphon War Declaration and Celestia’s War Proclamation. I’ve also started work on the battle and campaign maps, which are admittedly in a pretty rough state right now. Remaining is a single bonus chapter to be posted at the end of the original Rise of Firefly detailing Equestrian and Gryphon rank structure, song selections, and the completion the battle and campaign maps followed by their

Tentatively titled Into the Storm: The Flight of Firefly, This is the story of the first half of the Pony/Gryphon War, and it opens with a bang. Here’s a preview of the prologue:


Of all the ways I thought war with the Gryphons might begin, ‘twas not with an ambush or surprise attack.

A good initial release for Flight of Firefly... · 2:45pm Sep 6th, 2017

It was only in my fondest of hopes that Flight of Firefly would feature, but it’s still still off to a very good start for a non-clop war fic. And the release is not quite done yet either: Two more chapters will be published by week’s end, the first tomorrow and the second on Friday. The first chapter will be the conclusion of the Fort Spur battle and an introduction to the Royal Navy followed by a

Flight of Firefly will get a new chapter on Monday morning... · 12:15am Oct 9th, 2017

The Battle of Fort Spur is over. But the Battle for Cloudsdale is about to begin. Part 6 of Flight of Firefly launches tomorrow morning at 9am Eastern. It’s time to welcome to the story a pony with a tragic past. A pony who is nigh-unbeatable in battle and perhaps the most terrifying living weapon that exists on either side...

Part 19 of Firefly out tomorrow · 7:08pm Feb 16th, 2017

To compensate for a depressing last couple chapters, a much happier one awaits with awards and other honors for all. Expect a surprise appearance by a barely-heard-from pony that may well have what it takes to truly humble Firefly. You will also see how gryphon war preparations are proceeding, including how they're going to counter pony weather control. Be warned that being the weather nerd I am, you might see me geek out on the subject. But hopefully the included graphics will make up for

Sorry for the delay on Firefly · 2:06pm May 20th

As it happens, there are multiple pieces of good news and bad news on it.

  • Bad news #1 is that the new Firefly chapter got so big--a whopping 22k+ words--that I've had no choice but to break it in two.
  • Good news #1 is that means you'll be getting two big and juicy chapters in quick succession, with the first setting the scene for the epic clash in the second.

One for the road... · 1:57pm Jun 8th, 2016

Reservations are made for Las Vegas next week (I only wish it was Las Pegasus!). I'll be staying at Harrah's on the strip for six nights, leaving crack of dawn Sunday and returning Saturday to get my fill of poker, good food, and other vices. A couple people have requested updates on my play while I'm there, so I'll be posting regular blog updates while I'm there. Win or lose, I'll share.

Fifty for Firefly! · 9:43pm Nov 6th, 2015

Before the Storm: The Rise of Firefly notched its 50th like last night and is still pitching a shutout. Had a couple good spurts of new readership of late, and it seems to finally be gaining some traction. I thought about marking the occasion with something fifty-related, but what is there with fifty in it other than Fifty Shades of Grey? XP

Well, by coincidence, this is my 50th blog, so I guess that's covered. :coolphoto:

Where is the new Firefly chapter? · 5:21pm Mar 3rd, 2019

It’s almost but not quite ready. I’m still working on its graphics. I’ve completed 15 separate images with a couple more still to do. Yeah, I’m going all out for this one, as befits such a climactic battle. But now there’s another problem:
