Hi all, it's been a while since I've been on here. Good to see that SWAG is still going strong.

I've started up a new free web-serial, called, Orphans of the Celestial Sea. It follows the adventures of Tom Cain and his misfit crew, as they seek to unravel the mysteries surrounding their airship Hecate and the plague of psychosis-inducing Mist which is slowly destroying human civilization.


Early reader feedback is overwhelmingly positive, but I'd love to have your help in getting the word out. Here's what readers are saying:

"ARG! You swine! I must know what happens next!
Great opening chapter. If you can sustain this pace, you have an absolute winner."

"Great writing, very much looking forward to more."

"This was fantastic. I absolutely love the ideas behind it, and the use of accented dialogue was superb. A lot of people can't pull that off but you did it well. Awesome how you combine aspects of steampunk, fantasy, and zombies."

"Wow! Again, exciting and loads of momentum. I love it."

"Loving it so far!!! I never read on the computer, I love sitting in bed with a paperback, but I can't stop reading this!"

Thanks so much, see you 'round the aethersphere.

New episode up! I'm very happy with the feedback so far, but I'd love to have your input!


There's a Facebook page for Orphans too, I hope to see you there.


New chapter is up.

Or start from the beginning.

Read it now, or read it a year from now when all your friends are telling you how cool it is, and you feel like the last one in on an awesome new thing... again.  Grin

Oh and leave feedback, here, or on the blog, anywhere I can see it. I love feedback (cept the kind you get during sound checks... not that kind).
