Perhaps I should have called this blog "Shameless Promo the Sequel" but I digress.

I've succumbed to Beckett Grey disease. I want to write an novel, just to say I've done it. So following the example of my prolific fellow staff member, I've decided to try my hand at a serial. It's a fantasy story, a genre I've been reading since middle school. The title is at present "A Parliament of Thorns" which satisfies the gradiose part of me that hopes this sees publication, thus fullfilling a lifelong dream. A few folks have already taken to read the first installment for which I am grateful. This is a departure from my usual poetry, flash fiction heavy style. I'm enjoying it, and I think having a deadline of 1000 words a day may help keep me motivated.

Stop by take a peek, tell me what you like, and more importantly what you don't. All feedback is appreciated.


Smile if you're stupid,
laugh if you understand.

Hey, Bart, I just wanted to say good luck to you, and may you always meet your 1,000 words-a-day deadline. :) I'm sure it'll go well for you, and be a huge thrill. I will say that outside of "LotR" and the few things I've read at, I'm not a fantasy reader, but your cool premise hooked me from the start, so I'm going to enjoy reading it.

I doubt I need to say, "Have fun!", but... Have fun! :D

I appreciate your kind words about "Tower." To be compared to Neil Gaiman - I consider that a signal honor, and I thank you for it.

I will certainly submit something for consideration by "Elixir." "Tower," I feel, still needs work. However, if I don't have the time to revise it, I may submit a poem or another short prose work.

Again, thank you for your comment, Mr. The Scrivener. :)
