Stories, New and Old

May 7th, 2013  |  Published in Site News

I know that I haven’t been too active on this site recently. Sorry about that. It has never been far from my mind, however, and I am about halfway through the first draft of the new Emera story. In other news, over at I just posted a (very) old first draft from a story that I wrote before the world of Broken Shores had really taken shape. The plan is to tear it down and rebuild it as an independent story within the Broken Shores world that I can hopefully sell or at the least use as a gateway into the series (I hope to have it explain everything you need to know about the world to understand how things work). I’ll keep things updated here as I make (glorious, glorious, speculative) progress.

The holidays have passed and it appears that the schedule that I set has not proven to be overly ambitious. The second Broken Shores story, Bound, has been posted. In it, I introduce my second major viewpoint character, Kai Olanki, and though the story does not have direct continuity with The Ash Tree, I assure you that there is a larger story that I am telling. Enjoy!

Some Questions

December 11th, 2010  |  Published in Site News

So the site is up, the feedback is positive, now what?  More stories, obviously , but I imagine that once a month might be a bit sparse on the activity for readers. One option would be to shamelessly plug my other site, which has a variety of stuff that I’ve written, but I was hoping for something a bit more . . . classy.

So what would you like?  Do you want a message board?  Guided discussion on comment threads?  Polls?  Fight Club style assignments?  Merchandise?  A drop box in which to deposit cash?

Let me know, either in the comments, or via electronic mail (tom dot d dot sf at gmail).
