I know I said I’d be writing a lot more often, but I’m a liar. This week has been pretty busy now that my students (I’m a teacher, remember?) have started back up and I made the rookie mistake of somehow thinking I’d be able to do both work and write coming off the heels of a long vacation. But that’s neither here nor there…until tomorrow…
So first up I’ve decided to upload the rough manuscript version of Xenochrist‘s fist chapter “Paint My Spirit Gold” tonight! I think it’s ready for some readers now, and I’m looking forward to hear everyone’s thoughts on it. I don’t know if I’ll continue to upload chapters since I’m planning on selling the book once it’s finished (a common theme for me; the book is so close to being done ok?!).
So why’s this blog post titled “From Hell”? Well, it plays in to my need to seem clever when naming chapters, but I’ll tell everyone now. “From Hell” is the title of a song (big shocker) by my friends in Casket Robbery! How does this tie in to my announcement? Because I name-drop Casket in my first chapter, a band our protagonist, Kravac, asks for by name to be played. [ insert It’s All Coming Together .gif ]
Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for that post!
