HEY HORROR FANS! I've just started a new Tumblr for 100% horror stories written by the horror community on the site. I reblog there & take submissions. If you're a horror writer on Tumblr, please join the horror fam: horror-fam.tumblr.com 
          	
          	Also, contemplating starting up a Wattpad profile in a similar vein. I've never run a secondary Wattpad before -- any tips?

I'm re-posting chapters of The Hound as I work on edits, so don't be super confused if you see it popping back up in your notes!

I may be pulling The Hound down for a little bit to focus on rewrites. 
          
          I think you’ll enjoy the new content I’m adding.

So remember how I was starting on the next Lazarus book? Well. That got delayed a bit as I spontaneously decided to collaborate on a game with a friend who had a well-timed vacation this month. 
          
          So, a visual novel/dating sim is in the works. Thinking of cross posting parts of it, if I can think of a good way to do that. 
          
          We’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming soon! Waiting on beta feedback on Hound, so those edits may come soon. Also happy to see Neverest on a featured list - I hope y’all enjoy it!

So as you likely noticed, the first draft of Neverest is done, and all the usual disclaimers apply regarding its quality, lol. 
          
          But! I’m taking the rest of the week off to play Kingdom Hearts and recharge. Then, starting Monday, I’ll be working on the next book in the Lazarus trilogy, so that should be exciting! 
          
          The next project after that is rewriting The Hound and turning it into a proper story with a more satisfying ending. So if you haven’t read it, now is a good time to take a look and leave your feedback as I’ll be pulling it down next month to start on edits. 
          
          Thanks for sticking with me, as always! I love you guys.

:) sorry for the wait! I am excited to see what you think of the final version when it’s all ready to go, though!

If all goes according to plan, Neverest should be done this week. Well, “done.” Maybe one day I will learn to write rough drafts that are not so short, but fleshing them out in the second pass is always enjoyable :) 
          
          Thanks for sticking with me! 
          
          Next up I’ll be outlining and starting House of Lazarus, the next book in the Lazarus trilogy. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!

Neverest is creeping up on its third act, and I promise it will be a wild ride. 
          
          I’m curious to hear from you guys though about something. 
          
          Right now, I’m posting my rough drafts here as I write them. They are raw and unpolished and hot off the presses. But they’re also a bit skeletal, because I am a discovery writer and tend to write brief tales that require fleshing out to turn into proper stories. 
          
          My feeling so far has been that this roughness justifies having them up for free. It allows me to post more frequently as well. 
          
          But are you getting value from it, dear readers? Would you rather hear from me less often but with more polished work, or do you enjoy these exclusive first glimpses into the messy sausage making process? 
          
          Let me know your thoughts!

Lol @libbyfaucette you are the sweetest.

I am so happy with my current work schedule. Now that training is over, I go in at 1pm, which allows me time to get up early and write before work. This has been a really productive week, and I'm hoping that the trend continues -- nothing makes me happier than knocking out a few words first thing in the morning! 
          
          Neverest may be finished, in rough draft form, by the end of the month -- that's my hope, anyway. I know this draft (like all of my drafts, heh) is a bit thin. I do hope you guys are enjoying it anyway! There is a lot that I'm going to have to go back through and flesh out and fix but I think it'll be worth it. 
          
          Thanks for sticking with me!
