Good day everybody! I realize that I’ve been on hiatus for a while, but I’m back! And this time, I want to take you on a small behind the scenes look at some of the development of The Standard Tech Case.
Specifically, I want to talk about Dracula. The novel. The myth. The legend. The book with probably the worst adaptations ever made, or at least the largest number of bad adaptations ever made. And how I struggled to incorporate it into my Shadowed Universe.
Join me under the cut!
First preview chapter is up! Check it out below the cut!
First one in a while, eh?
Just to recap, the Standard Tech Case Files title contest is over. The winner, by a landslide, is No Blood for Business. A huge thanks to all who participated!
Secondly, chapter seven of The Uncanny X-Men is live. Check it out here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12008556/1/The-Uncanny-X-Men-Children-of-the-Atom There will be another chapter up this Sunday.
Speaking of updates, No Blood for Business is coming along swimmingly, but it won’t be released until at least early next year, and probably closer to April/May, mostly due to financial considerations. I will keep you updated, though, and you can expect a preview chapter this month.
On a final note, ground has been officially broken on my Spider-Man fanfiction. It’s part of the same universe as The Uncanny X-Men, and that first chapter should also be out this month.
Tune in next week, when I shall have even more goodies for you!
And the winner, by a landslide, is No Blood For Business!
Thanks to all those who participated and to those who didn’t, well, I hope you will next time!
On an unrelated note, stay tuned because the next chapter in The Uncanny X-Men will be up Sunday!
Yes it is!
Now remember, the contest comes in two parts.
Part One: you submit your title ideas to me through the comments section on these posts, or the messenger services on Facebook/Tumblr. You can also tweet them to me via Twitter.
Part Two: I take the suggestions I like best and put them in a poll which I will post here on WordPress! And then you get to vote on the titles you like best. The winner will receive copies of all four of my novels! Second and third place winners will get characters named after them!
Best of luck! I look forward to all your suggestions!
You want to win my title contest? Of course you do! But first you need to know what my novel is about!
The next novel in The Standard Tech Case Files series is a murder mystery taking place in the vampire quarter of Fort City, a fictional town on the north-east coast of the United States. It follows Joey Bianco, experienced cop and relentless cynic, and his young optimistic squire Jen Ryan as the search for the truth behind the death of one of the city’s leading citizens. A prominent businessman in the vampire has been found dead. Was he murdered? If so, by who? The wife? The wife’s lover? The majordomo? The businessman’s lover? Any of the group the businessman has pissed off over the years? And where does the theft of the businessman’s will fit into all of this?
There will be betrayal! Femme fatales! Sword fights! And of course, in good hardboiled fashion, much wry humour!
I look forward to seeing your suggestions!
