Firefly Update · 2:47pm Aug 16th, 2019

Fans of Into the Storm will be happy to know that there are not one but two new chapters underway, each with major sections guest-written (one by Leo Archon and another by AJ_Aficionado--thanks, guys!). At least one will be slated to launch on the story's two-year anniversary of September 1st.

Sorry for the delay on Firefly · 2:06pm May 20th, 2020

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.

Work is Hell · 1:17am Jun 19th, 2021

As the saying goes, War Work is Hell, folks. I’ve been working extra hours every day this week and probably will do so next week as well, to support a software release for the end of this month that we’re not allowed to let slip. As a result, my writing time has been severely limited and I’ve only generated 3400 words on the new Firefly chapter so far.

Hiatus has set in & a word on Firesight's ongoing story, Into The Storm · 12:57am Aug 23rd, 2019

I was hoping to get one more chapter of... something out before the World of Warcraft paralysis set in but the hype has finally won out and overtaken everything else. The game comes out next Monday and I'm going to be tied up with that for the foreseeable future. I've got gold to farm and Horde filth to slay while I wait for my auctions to buyout. It's going to be nice being rich in Classic WoW at a time in the game's history when most players were dirt poor. I'll be back just not sure

Flight of Firefly Part 11 at 7000 words and climbing... · 8:35pm Sep 24th, 2018

Tentatively titled "Retribution", it's on track for a September 30 release as only the trailing section of 2-3k words remains to be written. No teaser this time, as reading through it now, it feels like anything I could offer would be giving too much away. It's time for a parley and it's also time for Firefly and her entire command to decide as one what they're going to do in the face of an ultimatum and overwhelming gryphon force.

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!

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:

Firefly part 10 underway... · 5:40pm Aug 16th, 2018

First couple thousand words are down. I don't usually do teasers until it's lot closer to done, but this time I'll make an exception simply because it's been a while since there's been a new chapter. As mentioned before, it'll be a dual-track chapter with focus switching between two battle sites--Epsilon and Gamma/Raptor. We'll open with the former:

Part 17: The Flight of the Loyalty in progress · 5:36pm Apr 28th, 2019

As promised, here’s a teaser for the new chapter, which is about half done. I could actually break it off right where I am, but I won’t this time. This will be another double-sized chapter to describe the final escape from Epsilon, and all the myriad battles that happened within it. Duels, sharp fights, and naval action will be the order of the day, and you’ll get to see our Naval bridge crew and commanders in combat for the first time.

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

Firefly Book 2 Progress Report · 12:36pm Jul 31st, 2017

With the help of my writing and reviewing crew, making solid progress on the start of Into the Storm: The Flight of Firefly over the past week. To this point, I’ve got the cover art selected and story description written, with the prologue, first two chapters and one bonus chapter containing the Gryphon war declaration completed and ready for launch. Remaining to do before publishing:

  1. Finish two more chapters so there are five available to start
  2. Make campaign maps

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...

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.

For those who have wondered... · 8:00pm Apr 28th, 2020

The next Firefly chapter is well on the way, but even at 8300 words written is not coming quickly. The last three chapters, I found, pretty much wrote themselves as I was doing scenes I'd envisioned for a while. This time? I'm trying to thread a very difficult plot needle and so far I haven't succeeded, either according to myself or the one prereader who has looked at it. Without giving away the game, this has turned into a Fell Flight-centric chapter that's trying to set something up;

Into the Storm: The Flight of Firefly Part 28 is oh so close... · 12:50am May 25th, 2020

But it needs to be perfect before I hit the publish button. Reaction to the previous chapter has made very clear I have to absolutely nail this next one to validate it and address some of the concerns people have raised. Current plans are to release tomorrow, Monday the 24th, which is Memorial Day--a time to recognize fallen soldiers as well as officially kick off the summer cookout season--here in the USA. Memorial Day should be a fitting day for a new Firefly chapter release.

Next Firefly chapter underway · 4:05pm Jul 21st, 2021

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.

Folks, an apology for not replying... · 3:47pm May 17th, 2019

... to the comments on the last Firefly chapter yet. But work is a royal mother-of-a-diamond-dog right now, and I've been coming home late and exhausted night after night, in no mood to do anything. I will get to them this weekend, promise. My vacation can't come soon enough at this point; I'll be off to a week or two in Las Pegasus Vegas to get my fill of poker and the desert after Memorial Day. Who knows, maybe I'll run into Aces Up and Double Down (from Five Star

I accidentally hit the unpublish button on the new Firefly chapter... · 6:31pm Sep 27th, 2018

So it was unavailable until it was finally pointed out to me by KMCA. If you came by looking for the chapter and it wasn’t there, that’s why. It’s fixed now. They really should put a confirmation step on that button. :ajsleepy:

The new Firefly chapter is nearly complete... · 2:33pm Aug 29th, 2019

And very heavily guest-written. There will be one section by me, one by AJ_Aficionado, and one by Denim_Blue, each highlighting a different race/faction who will shortly have to choose sides in the war. And since I can't resist despite earlier saying there wouldn't be one, here's a teaser...

With the latest chapter more than half-done, I'm currently projecting a Thanksgiving-ish release (Thursday, November 28th for the non-American readers) for when you want relief from family or are otherwise immobilized by too much turkey and trimmings.
