Why would recycle a Ron Paul meme? Why wouldn’t I? Why aren’t you?
Okay, so first thing, the new edition of the new quarterly Unnamed Journal is out tomorrow. Layouts will be finished tonight.
Next, Void will finally see the light of day as a completed novella, at month’s end. The final edits are done, I just need to upload them to Amazon.
Next, back to The Sword. Now that the Three Novellas are out of the way, the plan is to devote full time to this. I’m currently in Chapter 6 of a planned 14, so a few month’s determined work could finish it.
In the meantime, I’ve got a western novella I’m toying around with, and the question of what I’m going to work on after The Sword is finished continues to bemuse me. I have one of several paths to take:
- The Lord of the Black Tower – swords and sorcery in my home-brew fantasy world, Cevalon.
- The Bastard of Maryland – alternate-history of America if Washington had died prior to the Treaty of Paris being signed. An actual (heavily altered) historical figure – the last, illegitimate descendant of the Calvert family – for the protagonist.
- Pilgrims of Elysia – Sequel to Solar System Blues. The descendants of Burton discover how the planet he discovered isn’t exactly as it seems to be.
- The Fires of Tirzah – A tale of palace coup, blood, and fire, taken straight from the Old Testament.
It’s not a question of which one I’ll write. It’s which one I’ll write first.
