Life of a Foundry Moth – Short Story Project Update III

Even though Camp NaNoWriMo is underway, rest assured that our short story collaborative project is going well. Well, it would be if I wasn’t worrying so much about what people will think of the next part of the story. When I developed the plot for what happens next, it was a three-way tie for who…

Dreamless City Writing Excerpt – Pocket Change

Time to introduce the third character of the love triangle in The Dreamless City, my steampunk urban fantasy novel.  Daschel Stagunner has been more of a challenge for me to write throughout the whole story.  I have been many things in my life, but a teenage boy was not one of them.  Nissa, on the…

Dreamless City Writing Excerpt – Breaking Rules

Since I have introduced Nissa, I figured I should go ahead and introduce the rest of the love triangle. Reynard Triannon is the super-serious head groom of the Stagunner stables.
