Category: Blood of Ages #2 – Divided They Fall

  • The Bad News

    I’ve been trying to find the gentlest way to address this, and–well–there isn’t one, so here’s the thing: My third book, and the second in the Blood of Ages series, “Divided They Fall”, isn’t going to be ready for the beta draft on the date I originally planned, at the end of September. Please don’t […]

  • Shit Just Got Real (The Beta Draft Begins)

    So a couple of weekends ago, Muse and I got together for one of our usual writer’s weekends. Amongst other–more important–revelations over that weekend, I learned that I don’t actually hate vodka and orange juice, as I’ve always thought since I tried it as a teenager, but rather that vodka is just a tricky beast that hides inside […]

  • ‘Divided They Fall’ is FINISHED*!

    * Put the streamers away. It’s only the first draft. I’ve been waiting SO LONG to be able to make this post. Ahem. I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF DIVIDED THEY FALL LAST NIGHT! You have no idea how freaking happy I am right now. I’m still on a high. Last night, I slept SO […]

  • Extending Deadlines

    Alright, nobody freak out, but I’m pushing back the self-imposed deadline of the first draft of Divided They Fall to mid March.

As a result, November will be a stressful month for me while I try to extract all these conflicting ideas from my brain and kind […]

  • Bring It Back

    Apologies for my recent absence on social media. I’ve been mostly offline, chillaxing, recovering, and generally soul-searching, which has so far resulted in the possibilty that I don’t have one. I also spent many hours watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which I still can’t decide if I like or not after four and a […]

  • The Magic Spreadsheet, Competitive Word Counts, and Writing Consistency

    So I joined The Magic Spreadsheet, which is a community of writers all in agreement to produce a minimum word count every day. The purpose of the community is to promote consistency and routine, to get (and keep) its writers in the habit of…well, writing. Also, it provides a little competition–and that can only ever […]

  • Divided They Fall, Draft One* Begins

    I am going to be working on “Divided They Fall (Blood of Ages, #2)” from now until I get the edited version of “From The Ashes” back at the end of August. I’ve been trying to find a song to best summarise all the next book, but it’s hard. A lot happens in Divided They […]
