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.
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.
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)
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.
