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

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.

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.

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

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:

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.

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.

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

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.

For those who have wondered... · 8:00pm April 28th

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;

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

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

Into the Storm will update this weekend... · 4:10pm Feb 1st, 2018

I'm sorry for the delay, but I had one of my worst bouts of writers' block in recent history over the third chapter of the Cloudsdale battle, unable to figure out how it was going to work--how civilians and retired veterans away from the weather factory could or would successfully fight back against the Knights and Ravens. But being down with the flu for the past few days was good for one thing; it gave me plenty of down time to think about it and I'm pleased to say I finally broke through and

New Firefly chapter now stands at 5300 words and climbing... · 4:15pm Aug 21st, 2018

Though I find I’ve hit a bit of block and ended up deleting an entire multi-paragraph sequence last night when I didn’t like what I wrote. Let’s just say for now I’ve been presented with a slightly thorny tactical issue I’m still trying to solve, bugging me to the point I ended up dreaming about it last night. The dream even suggested a solution (involving Gavian!), though I’m not sure it’s one I can use. I’ll discuss it with prereaders later.

Firefly Part 14 - final update plus teaser · 4:05pm Feb 25th, 2019

The climactic Battle of Epsilon chapter is draft complete and currently tipping the scales at a whopping 15,194 words. Musical selections are also made--expect some very heavy metal from a particularly appropriate album courtesy of AJ_Aficionado!--and it's now awaiting prereader passes. After due consideration, it is not going to be broken up into two parts. It's a big chapter because it needs to be in order to tell the full story of The Battle Beneath the Storm.

Firefly Part 14 update · 5:14pm Feb 15th, 2019

Tentatively titled “Storm Warning”, I'd hoped to have the new chapter draft complete by now, but it's not. It's about 2/3rds done, standing at around 6300 words currently. I've got the start, the ending, and the first of the middle sections more or less written, but two other sections remain. And then I have to make some graphics. Be advised, it's going to be a big chapter; probably 10k or more words.
