Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned: As Of Late Dept.


Sorry about the silence — been submerged in things. Here's what's rolling:

Welcome To The Fold

In case you missed it, the first few chapters — more on the way! — of my last novel, can be sneak-previewed at Inkshares.

SYNOPSIS:

When a young woman joins an underground street-theater movement with plans to change the world, her boyfriend follows her in to "rescue" her ... only to find it may cost both of them their personalities, and maybe also their lives.

ACTION ITEM FOR YOU, AND YES I DO MEAN YOU:

If you like what you see, if you're already a fan of my work please register for an account there, follow me (and follow the book itself). This is vital, because it shows that there's interest in the work.

If I get enough people showing interest, the book will automatically be bumped up to the point where it will be considered for publication by the Inkshares team.

My plan is to post most, or maybe even all, of Part One, and see if that elicits any interest. If I get to halfway through the year and there are no takers, I will drop back to Plan B and go through Kindle and CreateSpace. I'd rather see if Inkshares can help me accrue momentum first.

Once again, if you like my work, please show your support there to get this ball rolling.

Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned

The latest novel from the Genjiworks is about two-thirds done, perhaps a little more, in its first draft. Don't expect to see anything with this until at least next year — the second and third drafts are likely to introduce a great many changes. The way I explained it to a friend involves language that deserves its own blog post: Don't think of it as rewriting; think of it as creating an entirely new project using the earlier draft as raw material.

A great many of the most difficult questions I had about this story were things I could only resolve by encountering them on the level of individual scenes, or even individual lines of dialogue. They weren't things I could resolve by planning ahead, because those plans were predicated on assumptions I had to eventually discard. In other words: it'll be difficult work to rewrite this, but it'll be absolutely vital. This is the kind of story that can't be properly assembled in even a couple of drafts.

I ought to resume semi-regular blogging in a day or two. See you then.
