Happy Holidays!

Evenin' Dear Reader,

I won't bore you with endless apologies as to my absence.  It's not that I don't have excuses, of course I have excuses.  Excuses are easy.

I have excuses, but not good excuses.  Not really.  If you've slipped out of your urban fantasy genre confines to explore the wacky world of Brick Brannigan (first of all, THANK YOU, CITIZEN!), then you'll be delighted to hear that I've been putting my effort into polishing off the second volume of the projected trilogy, Brick Brannigan is Buried Alive on the Faroe Islands!

If you haven't read the inaugural Brick Brannigan tale–Brick Brannigan is Knee-Deep in Peril!–and are thereby nonplussed by this fine little post-Thanksgiving helping of news, then I've got nothing for you, this evening.

Sorry, pardner.

Anyway, for the one or two of you who are curious enough to want to know more about ol' Brick and friends, take a gander over here to get some background and additional info on the series.

And here's the new cover to get you excited (if, somehow, you're not already!).

Happy Holidays, friends!  And know that the wheels are still turning on The Zeros and The Empirical Evidence of Stars!).

Your loyal friend and author,

Finishing Touches

Evenin' Ladies and Gents,

Your loyal author here, checking in before I turn on a movie and fall asleep early (what else does one do on a Friday night?).

Draft #1 and #1.5 of The Zeros and The Season of The Witch are finished, and now begins the never-ending TYPO SNIPE phase.  Hey, don't give me that look, the writing phase didn't take too long.  God knows there are plenty typos, though, the main drawback of typing 80 words/minute and not looking back.

In addition to editing, tightening, funnying (totally a word?), and just all in all making it better, I am beginning to look at The Zeros and The Empirical Evidence of Stars once again–this time with more outlining–to say nothing of Brick Brannigan is Buried Alive in the Faroe Islands.  Did you read Brick Brannigan is Knee-Deep in Peril yet?  It's not bad!

Patience remains a virtue here at Camp Gil's Grimoire, so drink some cherry Kool Aid and watch The Return of Daimajin, but don't forget to keep checking back.

More news before you know it…

Your author buddy,

Novella News

Howdy Pardners,

So I was doing quite well on The Zeros and The Empirical Evidence of Stars, chugging along, cruising to chapter 15 when I hit a bit of a snag: this is infinitely more complicated than The Library of Doom! or The Man Who Could Not Die.  I'm sorting details, doing research (historical!), and trying to get ducks in nice lil rows.  The problem is, that's slowed down the writing process drastically.

So while that's happening, I figured I'd put my nose to the grindstone on a…

*wait for it, wait for it*

…a new novella.

Ah, yes, a new novella.  This puppy is called The Zeros and The Season of the Witch and it is coming together nicely.  New characters, new villains, and a new locale.  I'm working at it and hoping on a summer '14 release.

Stay tuned for more news, as it's surely coming soon (seeing as I'm about a third of the way through it!).

Much love and gratitude,
--Your Loyal Author
