25. I started using this site when I was thirteen; I feel old now.
Writing, smoking, Xbox Live, and writing. Oh, and writing. :)
Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Korn, Skrillex, Eminem, Nas, Lincoln Park. Yes, I do sometimes write to music, as sometimes it's the only thing that gets the blood flowing. My current soundtrack is jumping from "Mechanical Animals" to "Path of Totality". Every now and then I'll venture into Classical or some Don Davis stuff. Yes, the Matrix and Queen of The Damned pretty much inspired my fandom of some of these groups. Sue me. (Not literally, please)
While The Eve of All Hallows was intended to be a one shot, I saw the potential to continue on with it. In keeping the integrity of it, however, the stories to follow will all be holiday related. The Eve of The Unbroken Sun will follow the first, based on the true, and, unfortunately Pagan roots of Christmas, along with following the adventures of August, Idara, and of course, Eve.
The Deathless Legacy (Formerly The Immortal Anthology)
Til Death is finally uploaded and completed. It's not magic, it was already finished, I was merely enjoying being lazy for a while. :) Blood Money, the prequel to The Undertakers is still underway, along with The Death Toll, which hopefully makes the last book of that series (as much as I and others love the protagonists).
Rise of Dracula and Wolfbane are still in progress. Guinevere, The White Phantom is finished as well. Tale of the No Life King (formerly Immolations of a No Life King) has two sequels to follow: Ressurection of the No Life King and The No Life Princess , both of which are currently working, ironically enough. The Grey Witches is to be updated soon, it's been through several edits following the original. Part Two, Shades of Grey will be posted soon, and Part Three, Threefold is in progress. Any ideas for a series title would be greatly appreciated. LOL
New Projects: Moon Runners & Doppelganger
Moon Runners was another Cowboy Bebop inspired fiction. It's a sci-fi taking place in the late 3,000's, centering around a crew of four paramilitary bounty hunters. It chronicles them before they met and all the action they undertake after, including a villain who's been playing them like chess, a female boss who channels Charlie in her role as their leader, tons of action and Deus Ex style mods to top it off.
Doppelganger is set in modern day Louisiana. The main character is an average guy, happily almost-married, until voodoo forces his life into a windstorm. It throws supernatural horror into a pot with psychological and thriller. Parts one through six are now posted.That's right, six is finally done, edited (except for chapter length) and posted. Don't get the wrong idea and get sad; nobody said it was "over". ;)
Excommunication is a story I started back in '11 and let sit for a while, and now I'm actually working on it. :D It's what I'm using to break up Doppelganger Six and Seven, by the way. I needed something new to work on. This story is about Frederike Dragana, an assassin for an organization called "Calibre Veritas", or Sword of Truth, an agency working to destroy the Vatican regime, in a dystopian one world Theocracy under Rome. She is one of three agents remaining and still working, and by now, that doesn't include her parents. I imagine it will be very controversial, with undeniably religious AND atheist views within it, but for now I'm making it more of a Priest-world sci-fi action. Like many of my recent stories it's in first person, but when I do finally make enough progress to post it (and by now you can tell I don't like posting until it's finished) you will definitely find her voice new and refreshing-- even though it's very clinical and harsh. LOL
A Note to My Review Buddies
Please don't bother reviewing if you're not going to read it all the way through. Otherwise I will do the same thing right back-- and as writers, we call all tell when someone has skimmed. If you send me a two line review, don't get pissed if I review you the same way.
"If you have to explain your book to me, rewrite it. I know you won't be there when I read it". E.B. White
This is about overall clarity of your stories-- an issue that kicked my ass until I fully grasped it. This is my mode of operations as it comes to giving and receiving reviews. And while we're on the subject, I have an important announcement:
Reviews should not be treated or regarded as trophies. That is not their purpose. The purpose of reviews is learn your strengths and weaknesses, and edit to a perfect draft.
Now, I may seem critical in the ones I give, but only to be helpful. Never forget I'm at the bottom my damn self. I know how it feels to get flames and it is NEVER my intention to flame ANYONE. I just want to help you get it right. That's the key. Even JK Rowling admitted that after every rejection she received for Harry Potter, she became more critical of her work and kept editing it, until bam, she got picked up by a major publishing house. It may just be me on this "revise to perfection" tip, but serious writers seeking publication should do so. AND, if you think my, or any one else's reviews are tough-- LOL. Try duking it out with a professional editor. Don't get me wrong; I still have fun. Look at what I write. Think of the situation as being Tony Stark. He has a bitchin' good time being Iron Man and kicking ass with the Avengers, flaunting his money and his intelligence, cocky as all get out, but he's still dedicated and meticulous enough to get his blueprints right and build his machines to the letter.
So, bear these things in mind when getting and receiving reviews from me. On the technical, grammar/punctuation side, try to generalize. It's a pain in the ass on both sides-- to go through line by line making suggestions and to get a review with line by line suggestions. A few is cool, but more seems too much. I try to review with that guideline in mind, and SURELY you have more to tell me than about my sentences.
Beyond that, get to R&Ring. I appreciate it, yall.
