Hi guys! I know I promised a post last week, but I have in fact been in crippling agony for the past week or so due to a cavity that I should have taken care of years ago, but didn’t.
But you don’t want to know about my pain, you want to know about my writing.
And, admittedly, I haven’t gotten a lot done this month. Between the American election and my toothache, I’ve been drained to the max.
So here’s a quick update.
The Standard Tech Case Files: No Blood For Business
Work on the first chapter continues apace. Originally, I had planned to have the first chapter and second chapter finished for this month, but that’s not going to happen.
A preview for the first chapter can be seen on my Patreon. Link here: https://www.patreon.com/joshstoodley
Introducing my newest series, Brockhold! Inspired by the Redwall series by the late (and deeply lamented) Brian Jacques, it takes place in a pseudo-England inhabited by woodland creatures.
The main character is Redfur (name open to revision) a weasel commoner recently promoted to High Constable of Brockhold. He and his best friend, Hob Short-tail, must contend with the damage done to the castle’s guard by the previous High Constable, the lord of Brockhold’s son.
That’s not all the two have to contend with, though. Lord Morchyn of Brockhold intends to marry his son off to Countess Johanna, the young and newly ascended lady of another hold. In Countess Johanna’s retinue is the Lady Ailenor Laflamme, a weasel who’s as hard-bitten and cynical as Redfur himself is.
While the two retainers clash over what is best for their lords, other victims of the previous war arise, with plans of their own…
As always, preview chapters will be posted on Patreon.
This has been a slow year for updates to my fanfic, and I apologize for that.
However, more is coming!
The next chapter is going to undergo a complete re-write; currently it’s all exposition and bad exposition at that.
So that may not come out this year.
That’s it for this time, I’ll see you guys again soon!
