Fudging Friday: Fixing My Rudder

Today, I’m cheating on my third blog posting – I’m finally getting back rolling on Swordsmaster – I’m doing character interviews and rewriting the sections where those characters appear in the story, and even expanding the presence of some of the incidental characters. Rather than just mentioning them in a scene, I’m going to let them tell their own story (sort of a variation on SHOW, DON’T TELL.) I’m afraid if I spend too much time thinking about other things, I’ll lose my momentum (which happens far easier than I like admitting.)

Just saying – now back to it!


ImperialPurrogativeCoverMy next ePublication will be “Imperial Purrogative”:

Champion of the Empire Hercules Tom is on the outs with Emperor Maxamillian and, Imperial Purrogative being what it is, has to deal with Rotter plots, traitors, assassins and other Imperial intrigues.

“Imperial Purrogative” is the fifth story in my Herc Tom, Champion of the Empire series. The release date is November 17th (1 week remains), but it’s available for preorder until then at a REDUCED PROMOTIONAL PRICE at various retailers, including, but not limited to:
