CALLSIGN: DEEP BLUE, the new Chesspocalypse Novella (and my Jeremy Robinson Bromance)

So, I actually had someone ask me about why I hadn’t mentioned this on my blog yet. It’s not top secret or anything, I just hadn’t had the time yet, and wanted to get the first three micro-interviews with the other Chesspocalypse authors up first. That’s right—other.

Jeremy Robinson, one of the coolest, hippest, most soft-spoken, and kindest authors out there, did me a supremely cool solid. He offered me the chance to write a novella of my own in the Chesspocalypse series. Well, actually, I suggested to him that he do a Deep Blue novella for the series, and he asked if I’d like to co-author. I was thrilled.

Writing Update

[Note: I’m making some streamlining changes here on the site. Gonna be fewer pages overall and more posts here on the main page. Instead of maintaining a static Writing Page, I’m just going to drop updates in here from time to time. I’ve also done away with the inspriation page–I’ll be placing reviews of things I like here in the main section as well.]

Writing Update:


I completed Resurrect on 10 Aug 2010. I finished edits on 30 Dec 2010. The book is now with my First Reader. The book has been proofread and I’ll incorporate my First Reader’s feedback, then I’ll be sending it out to agents.

After Resurrect:

I’ve started work in earnest on the next book. It’s a YA paranormal adventure called Monster Kingdom. I plan to self-publish it as an e-book.

I have one other novel I hope to knock out (a Mystery) before I turn to Frozen, the sequel to Resurrect.

Short Stories:

I’ve completed a couple of short stories. “The Firmament of Night” and “The Wound in the Woods” are both a bit Lovecraftesque short horror tales. I’m still looking for a home for both.

Web Comics:

Warbirds of Mars is coming near the end of its first arc. Scott launched the website on 22 July, 2010. Feedback has been positive. He came up with the idea for what is now Week 9 and also for what is now Week 20. I’ve plotted out Week 24 is out now and Week 26 will wrap this first story arc. Scott expects to have a printed version of the comic ready for the Phoenix ComicCon in May. He’ll be there. I might be but it isn’t looking too good right now.


Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Time to fix that.

I started revising my first manuscript, for the thriller RESURRECT, a few days after I finished writing it. That would have put it around end of August 2010.

What I did was print out the book on paper. Then I read through with a red pen and marked up the whole thing. Probably the last time I’ll do it that way.

I got through about a quarter of the manuscript rapidly, and then life intervened. I had family visit. Then I fooled myself into thinking I would enter 2010’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) contest. Shortly after I started the contest (or in other words, about ten pages into my NaNoWriMo novel), I took on a side job that killed any chance of completing the contest.
