I've just discovered my ancient family motto. Prepare yourself for this, because it's true, even though it sounds like I'm making it up. Ready?
"A Wight man never wants a weapon."
In case you might be unfamiliar with the secondary definition of "want," this means "A Wight man never lacks a weapon," or in other words, "A Wight man is never unarmed."
Doesn't that sound awesome? I'm going to have to work that into a story at some point. I'll include a picture of my family crest below, in case you still don't believe me.
Also, please allow me to remind you once again: I'm sending out another short story to the mailing list on April 1st. That's this Friday. Sign up now, or miss it forever!*
*By 'forever,' I mean I'll send it to you if you ask me by email, but I'd appreciate it if you just subscribed to the mailing list. It's much easier to send all the stories out at once.
Hey, everybody! Tomorrow morning, I'll be participating in an Author Round Table event over at SFFWorld.com!
What is a Round Table event, you ask? Insightful question! And I don't fully know the answer! As I understand it, there are a number of authors participating in what is essentially a forum-based AMA. There are a number of talented indie fantasy authors taking place, including Megan O'Keefe, James Barclay, John Marco, and some talentless hack they found on the streets.
So check it out tomorrow, ask me questions, and let's make this a party! You can ask the others questions too, I won't stop you, but know that I will judge you in my heart for your disloyalty.
Also coming up on the docket: New mailing list story April 1st.
I just sent an original Traveler's Gate story, entitled A Collection of Swords, to everyone on my mailing list!
If you got it, or didn't get it, let me know in the comments! Tell me what you thought, and if you'd like to see more content like this in the future.
If you missed this one, sign up for the mailing list at the bottom-right of this page, or the bottom of the home page (beneath my bio).
And most importantly, thanks for reading!
