I return from my update hiatus bearing good news! At long last, the manuscript for the second volume of the Gemsong Saga series is now complete! While there is still a good bit of editing to do, I’ve cleared the biggest hurdle, and it should all be downhill from here. Once the final editing is… Continue reading
It feels like it has been forever since I last sat down and wrote anything. While in reality, it has only been a little over four months, each day has passed both blindingly fast, and excruciatingly slow. Thankfully, my long hiatus is now over. I’m back, and ready to write. I’m out of practice and… Continue reading
When I started my break in March, I already had plans for how to fill the extra time. The Candle and Quill section of the website was put up, I got on top of releases, and even found time to work on A Man Named Zephyr. Things were looking good, and I was ready to… Continue reading
The Candle and Quill home page is now up and running. A wealth of information about the magazine and its content is now easily accessible. Simply click one of the links in the top Nav-bar and see everything the Candle and Quill has to offer. In addition, the Ruu McKinney website has gotten a full… Continue reading
Issue 05 of the Candle and Quill is now complete and pending release with smashwords.com. With the departure from Patreon, getting the Candle and Quill’s home page online is my main priority. This will require substantial work, and I’ll be taking March off to handle it and the rest of my backlog.
The Candle and Quill project will be leaving Patreon as of issue 04’s release. From this point forward, all current and future releases will be available via Smashwords.com as well as several other online retailers. This change comes after much thought, and has been prompted by several factors, as explained below.
Issue 04 of the Candle and Quill is done and ready to release. With the release of this new issue, there are several exciting short stories as well as full-length novel chapters to enjoy.
Issue 03 of the Candle and Quill is complete and ready for release. Current Patrons can expect to receive their copies within the next week, while non-patrons can look forward to it on Smashwords before the end of January. Becoming a patron is a great way to get advanced access to each new issue. If… Continue reading
Issue 02 of the Candle and Quill has just been completed. Patrons can expect to receive their copies around the first week of December. If you’re not already a Patron, you still have a couple of days, but time is running out. Issue 02 of the Candle and Quill continues the story of the Serpent’s… Continue reading
Issue 01 of the Candle and Quill is now complete and ready to ship. While it’s not too late to become a patron and nab yourself a copy of issue 01, time is running out!
Starting in October, I am embarking on a new project intended to expand both my writing, and my visibility. This project will be posted on Patreon, and takes the form of a small, monthly, writing collection.
To celebrate the great progress I have been making, I would like to offer a sneak preview of the upcoming Gemsong Saga Volume 2: A Man Named Zephyr. The second volume of the series introduces the major players within the Lutian Nobility, and several new factions. Expect a release before the end of the year.
