Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

A teaser

Because, you know, if I put on the blog, then it has to happen. No take-backs.





















This one I have plotted out in my head. Three novellas: Blood-tempered, Weaving Steel, and Kissing the Blade. Many a moon ago I wrote about how I had a character stuck in my head, a sword-monk. I know his story better now, and am more confident about telling it. I just need more time.

Also, the wonderful poet Megan Arkenberg has graciously given permission for me to use her poem 'Song Before a Quest' as an epigraph for the story.

Lot of sexy girls on the covers, one notes. Imagine the sales of Thagoth if that had been the case way back when... Because it would have been appropriate - sexy female protagonist, etc...

It's all just packaging. I'm not going to fight against the tide. Amra, after all, has a scarred face and a figure 'like a boy'. But I do have a soft spot for the trashy genre covers of my youth...

I like that cover. She looks like me.
