Current Projects: August

The August Edition of “What the hell is Faith procrastinating on now?”. Novels and stories and that serial thing that sort of happened spontaneously, plus more, under the cut.

Novels

Princess: After a bloody coup a Princess must reclaim her country and save her sister. 22,000 words and climbing. (Slowly at the moment, because I need to re-plot a couple of character arcs).

Untitled Miri/Oren: Ideas are percolating. Walled cities, Kolpatar, criminal investigations. Fantasy private detectives?

Salvage: SF/Space Opera about the crew of the salvage ship Lady Luck. Vaguely Firefly-flavored. Outlining on hold while I double down on Princess.

Lioness: Gladiators, revolutions, girls kissing. Probably YA. On hold for the foreseeable future.

Sekrit Project: Private people living in public places. Co-project. Current status: brainstorming.

Short Stories

Untitled Miri/Oren: Miri and Oren on a diplomatic mission. Fully plotted, and about 1.5 pages written. On hold while I decide if I like it or not.

Dwindle, Peak, and Pine: Law firm specializing in prophetic injury malpractice suits. Urban Fantasy plus Shakespeare. Looking for a plot.

Lights and Sirens: The police keep finding bodies. Cause of death: starvation. Is there a serial killer on the loose, or is the culprit something more…mythological? Brainstorming/Outlining. Title is subject to change because it’s a terrible pun and I’m not sure if that’s the tone I’m going for or not.

+2 short stories to be written on spec for various magazine theme issues (still brainstorming)

+one flashfic piece for a contest, probably (brainstorming)

Serials

Bell, Book and Candle: UF about Lizzie Bell, semi-retired ghost hunter. We are up to installment 8 of ??, and I’ve pretty much decided this is a “wing it and hope for the best” project. Status: in progress.
