If you plan to buy my new book 1KRV5, I suggest checking it out on the Inkstained Succubus site. It's half the price there compared to what it is at Amazon for a print or an ebook copy. It's a great bargain!

Imagine a world where genetic experimentation is a reality, common enough that the government had to step in to regulate it. Mikkel's creations are as illegal as they are magnificent, none so miraculous as his most beloved creation 1KRV5, more affectionately known as Icarus. Beautifully designed, but fundamentally flawed, Icarus serves as Mikkel's companion, both in his laboratory and in his bed. This is the story of Icarus and his creator, two beings irrevocably drawn to what they are sure they can never have - the freedom of the open sky and the love of a mechanical creature.

I've decided to try a bastardized version of NaNoWriMo this year. Rather than writing 50,000 totally new words, I'm getting off my rear and revising a story I've had in the wings that badly needs it, plus adding to it to make it novel length rather than novella length. I've got too many stories in this half-written state to add another one. I'm focusing on my Supernal story, which has good possibilities to reach actual novel length. I just need to tighten the plot to make the ending make a bit more sense. The threat was too generalized so I need to make it more specific!

Here's where I stand, as of 11/28/2014...

51064 / 50000 words. 102% done!

In case you hadn't heard, Hungry Hearts has been released! That means "Persephone Is Bleeding" is finally available for your reading pleasure. There aren't any reviews, yet, so get out there and say some good things! ;-)

Or, more accurately, the anthology Hungry Hearts was released yesterday, within which you can find my short story "Persephone Is Bleeding". I'm very excited to have something new to share with you! Sadly, there was an error in the blog summary ( I hope they've corrected it!) on the website - Clay is the seventh in line, not the fifth. Seven is a magic number.... A Western Civ professor once taught that the ancient "mystical" numbers were 1 (for the individual), 3 (for the Trinity), and 1+ 3 = 4 (for the individual + God). And somehow that ended up 3 + 4 = 7 (the nearly universal "lucky" number). Everything means something, man!


It had been decades since Clay had seen the sky. He had spent all that time in Hell as Lucifer's pampered Pet, the latest in the long line of Persephones to infatuate the King of Hell. Then, one day, something comes to his bleeding tables that turns his world upside down and helps him to remember that wondrous shade that might just save his sanity...or destroy it.

The name may sound familiar, but it's not the story that's currently up here and on AO3. I just stole the title from myself since it fit this story so well.

You can purchase Hungry Hearts at Inkstained Succubus ->!s... or Amazon ->

I hope you enjoy it!

I received my first royalty statement today. While still epically far from being a millionaire, I'm $19 richer than I was yesterday! :-) If you have any friends who might be interested in my book Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky, please spread the word. I don't have a publishing empire behind me to pay for advertising, so it all depends on word-of-mouth.

Please spread the (good) word with your mouths! ;-) That sounds so dirty. It's available at Amazon and Barnes&Noble in both paperback and e-book versions. If you happen to have a paperback version you want signed and will be at the Louden Swain show at Lestat's in San Diego at the end of the month, I'll sign it for you. ;-)

I'm still working on my writing. It looks as if the Hungry Hearts anthology has been delayed for a little while, but it's still coming! My short story "Persephone Is Bleeding" will be included in that one. Yes, I stole the title from another story of mine because I loved it so much and it fit so perfectly. I love coming up with titles, not that they're all gems. My Supernal story is in the editing phase and I've made a lot of progress on my Icarus story. Both need refinement, but I think they're pretty interesting. :-)  PG has faltered a bit because I've been focused on the other two stories so much, but I have been picking at it. If I can make the necessary refinements, I think it could be pretty awesome. I'm already excited about the set-up and I think that section really sets out the pieces quite nicely.

I really feel for Chuck right now. Writing is hard!

My latest work-in-progress is a literary Bermuda Triangle. I've sent it to two people and then haven't heard from them! :-( I feel a bit like the Flying Dutchman, at this point. Maybe I should get a job with the Mafia or become a Vegas magician since it seems I can make people disappear. This is very disheartening.

So it seems I still need a beta. I understand your fear at possibly offering yourself for the position! I'd suggest making sure to leave your coordinates with trusted friends and/or family and perhaps a detailed map of your daily schedule. If anyone has time and is willing to give this story a looking over, I'd really appreciate it.

Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky has been out for ten days. Word of mouth is my best advertising, so if you've purchased my book (or even just had good thoughts about it), please drop by Amazon or Goodreads or Barnes & Noble to leave a rating or a review.

Thank you for your support!

It's official...Misfit Prophets Beneath a Bankrupt Sky is finally out! The editing was completed quickly so it was released only a couple of days late. If you're interested in purchasing, you can find it here. Give it a try, I think you might like it.

In related news, I have an interview with Bitten by Books on February 12th regarding Misfit Prophets. If the lure of asking me questions isn't enough, there is also a contest for an Amazon gift card if you drop by. :-)
