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.

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 June 19th

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.

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:

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...

Firefly Chapter 21 is on the way · 7:03pm Nov 21st, 2019

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.

Getting there... · 7:38pm May 16th, 2020

New Flight of Firefly chapter now at 14k words and with another 2-3k words to go. I have major momentum on it now after struggling with it for some time, as it's finally taking shape and being fleshed out. For those who know me on Skype, I'm mostly unavailable until I finish this. Best guess at this point is it'll be draft complete tomorrow and released within a couple days after, once prereaders have given it a thorough check and thumbs-up.

Firefly Chapter 24 is draft complete · 6:00pm Mar 16th, 2020

Not quite a record time for turning out a new chapter, but close. Weighing in at around 8500 words, it was a scene and sequence I'd been wanting to do for a very long time, and certainly one I'd been hyping here for quite a while. There will be no teaser, and it's possible it will released tonight as I get prereads in and edits finished. Just need some additional music selections, and we're good to go!

New Firefly chapter release possible this weekend · 10:44pm Nov 8th, 2018

Having been given a head start with a section of the new chapter already written by Leo Archon, I launched into that next chapter and now find it coming quite quickly. Already at 6000 words, it is likely to be finished by the weekend, and depending on how quickly my prereaders can get to it, it might even go out on Sunday.

Firefly update + an alteration to the latest chapter · 2:15pm Aug 28th, 2020

Though I made some additions and edits, and will probably make a few more during this weekend's editing passes, the chapter belongs to Denim_Blue, so he gets to write the author's note and reply to comments on it. I'm very lucky to have a pair of prereaders who have contributed to the story not just with edits and comments, but by offering up their species headcanon for the story's use--AJ_Aficionado for the thestrals, and Denim_Blue for the Changelings. It's time for the latter to take center

Flight of Firefly - Part 13 Draft complete · 4:52pm Jan 25th, 2019

After struggling to write a few hundred words a day, the dam broke once I figured out the flow of battle and I wrote the final 3000 words in the last day. Part 13 has reached 9373 words as of this writing, and the first prereader to get his hooves on the full chapter loves it. Chapter will release on Sunday morning or sooner if all prereads are received in time.

A teaser? Sure, why not...

Next Firefly chapter will launch no later than Sunday morning · 3:54pm Mar 11th, 2020

Tentatively titled “Change of Command”, it’s currently coming in at just shy of 9000 words and it’s going to test my writing ability to create extreme tension and suspense in readers even without an actual battle.
