Smoothing Things Out

ravenesque

A few times recently I’ve talked on this website/blog about the problems I’m having with writing the urban fantasy novella “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar”. I’m still in the process of smoothing some of those problems out. At the same time, I’m getting used to using the yWriter5 software for outlining purposes. The project is moving along slowly at this point, but picking up speed. The outlining stage of the project is about 3/4 done. For those of you who are awaiting the release of this project, I thank you for your patience. I hope the end result will be a suitable reward for you all!

“Quagmire Fen” On Barnes & Noble’s Nook

Just a few days ago I announced that my critically-acclaimed urban fantasy/horror novella “Quagmire Fen” would soon be released in formats other than Amazon Kindle. Well, as of now, “Quagmire Fen” is also available on Nook from Barnes & Noble. Pick up your copy today!

Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.

Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.

Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.

What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?

New “Ravenesque” Ideas

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the “Ravenesque” project here. “Ravenesque” originally began as an on-going, low/no budget web-series concept. From there, it evolved into an on-going,bi-monthly comic book. However, that never went beyond a script for the first issue, and a few pieces of concept artwork from a couple of potential artists.

Now, Desirée Lee and I have taken the ideas for “Ravenesque” to a different platform. We’re planning to do with it what we’re doing with “Warder”. That is to say that “Raveneque” will be a series of urban fantasy novellas. And there are new ideas in the mix, now, too. These ideas will add to the richness of Ravenesque’s world, and take the character and settings in directions we had never even thought of before.

The catch?

I’m not sure when work will actually begin on the first “Ravenesque” novella. Hopefully soon. But, at the moment, we’re going through final edits on “Hidden Tribe“. “Warder: Changing Guard” is also in edits. We’re also keeping up with out hit webcomic “MoonWraith“. We have other projects in various stages of completion, too – both solo works, and co-authored books. And, most of all, we’re parents of a healthy, active 2-year-old girl. She’s a full-time job in, and of herself!

Still, with luck, work on the first novella in the “Ravenesque” series can start before too long. I’m very excited about it – especially with the new ideas and directions! – and eager to start the first draft of that.

Keep watching for updates, please!
