An excerpt from "Dust and Blood" - the first story in the Tales from the Brymlight Observer short story anthology currently on Kickstarter.

In this riveting short story, the sinister Jeremiah Wilkins partners up with Sheriff Ethan Drake to lift a curse from Knuckles Gap, one that demands a horrible price each dawn……

Thank you Matt!

I look forward to participating the best I can - hopefully I have something to contribute to the group here. I just wrapped up my first draft on a book I have been working on for about a year and taking a break before tackling the editing.

elcome Glen!  You will find this quite an interesting locale and best of luck with your first novel.  The synopsis sounds great!

Thanks Gail.  I am finding that regular doses of encouragement very helpful in the writing process.  I couldn't believe how many congrats I go just for finishing my first draft!  Between my writers group, folks in my writing class, my family, all the folks at my bookstore hangout (yeah, unlike most people, I go to bookstores to write books rather than to buy them) - it all helps keep moving me forward.  Or maybe it is just wanting to avoid explaining how I gave up after getting this far...

I am with you in spirit. I am skipping this year because I don't need another month long excuse to avoid revising the novel I started in last year's NaNoWriMo! Maybe next year when I am ready to do sequel!

Can you set posts up ahead of time... That's how I do it... Set up a few posts ahead of time

Sure. Drafts in Wordpress pretty easy. I have done that a couple of times in the past. Things are starting to settle down a little bit. I want to get back into at least a weekly post.
