Have finally bit the bullet and am rewriting the Lost Biography sections to mesh better with the rest of the story. I've been debating this for a while and have even been working on a draft of some changes. I've hesitated to actually make the change, but the more I've thought about it the more I'm sure it needs to happen. There are things I've always liked about the original way I wrote The Lost Biography, but the story as a whole has come a long way since then and developed a new kind of unity that largely excluded the material in this story line. So I'm onto it now, drowning one of my darlings...

Check out my guest post at Spinning Straw into Gold, where I talk about familiar otherness in the the opening passages of The Black Dionysia.

Welcome to my author's blog

Welcome to my author's blog. I'm only just getting this started, so I don't have much to say today. And aside from editing the next chapter of The Black Dionysia, which will be another section from The Lost Biography of Zeus, I'm in the middle of working on something for a guest post at Spinning Straw into Gold. Although I am very excited about this opportunity I am also a little stumped over it at the moment. Not sure if I aught to write something new or if it wouldn't be better to share an excerpt. But then I have to figure out how long an excerpt would be best... Ah, what am I going to do?

If you came here expecting to read a story or a chapter from a story, you should go here instead.
