Victoria Grefer's Writing Handbook

I just wanted to put in a plug for my friend Victoria's writing handbook. It is being released today on Amazon. The title is: Writing for You: A Novelist’s Guide to the Craft of Fiction. Victoria is very smart and very thoughtful about her writing, and her advice is definitely worth checking out. Remember, you can always look at a preview of the book on Amazon before deciding to buy.

Blue Island Gods & Promotion

Some months ago, I mentioned working on a new project that is urban fantasy / contemporary fantasy (urban fantasy gets loaded with a lot of other meanings, so I'm looking for a way to describe this project). In any case, I've been working on that project on the side. I've sent the first part out, and we'll see what happens with it. In the mean time, I've written the second part (titled Mictlampa).

The project is going to be a cycle of stories set in modern-day Chicago. The tentative title is Blue Island Gods. Depending on what happens with the first part I sent out, I will be serial publishing these stories starting in October. It's a tentative plan at best, but I wanted to let you know what I've been working on. Tomorrow I start on the third book in the Sophistries series and I will be writing the rest of that series for the rest of this year (two more novels and two more novellas)

I'm sorry that I haven't kept up with the regular posts; I just don't have time for them at the moment. I'm hoping I'll be able to return to regular blogging later this summer, so we'll see what happens.

Also, another item of business: I will be running a free promotion of Fold Thunder through Amazon at the end of this month (July 20-24). Be sure to get a copy, if you don't have one already!
