Ishta’s Companion/Relics of War: Progress Report Twenty-One

Look! Up in the sky!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Chapter Twenty-One!

Yes, Chapter Twenty-One — strange visitor from another reality, gifted with powers and abilities beyond those of ordinary prose that it uses to wage a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the Ethsharitic way!

It did get completely paid for, but there’s only about a buck and a half over toward Chapter Twenty-Two.

Three chapters to go, but only if they’re paid for before I sign the contract. Which I don’t have yet, because I wanted to finish the second draft first, and I’ve only just started on it.

Ishta’s Companion/Relics of War: Progress Report Nineteen

Thanks to one very large donation and a few smaller ones, Chapter Nineteen is now posted for all to read, and Chapter Twenty is paid for but not posted yet. (I’m thinking I’ll probably post it Tuesday.)

The serial might yet be finished. We’ll see.

Not much else to say; I haven’t started work on the second draft yet. Wildside says I can have a contract whenever I’m ready, but they aren’t in a rush.

Oh, they also mentioned that the sell-through for The Sorcerer’s Widow in bricks-&-mortar Barnes & Noble outlets has been disappointing; if you happen to see copies in your local B&N, do whatever you can to help them find homes. Returns won’t help Wildside’s bottom line or my prospects of getting future titles into real-world stores.

(Online sales have done just fine; it’s only traditional bookstores where it hasn’t moved.)

Thanks for your support, everyone.
