The five-year anniversary of House of Blades' release is coming on June 1st, which also means it's the five-year anniversary of Hidden Gnome Publishing*!
I know we've been pretty dry on news over the last few weeks while I've been in my traditional writing seclusion, but now that spell is coming to an end! Keep an eye on this space over the next few days, because news is coming!
So much news that you will choke on it. News that will blacken the sky and ravage your crops, until you turn tear-stained eyes to the heavens and beg "Please...no more news." But the skies are deaf to your pleas, and the news continues to fall.
The deluge begins soon! Gird thyself!
*"Hidden Gnome Publishing" = me writing and a handful of other people whipping me to write faster.
Boy, April ended faster than I thought.
Instead of sending a story out through the mailing list, I'll be copying-and-pasting a scene from Ghostwater here on the blog! Both so that people who haven't signed up for the mailing list can enjoy it and so that I don't have to think of something else to blog today.
It's a win-win.
Next, I'd like to write a slice-of-life story with Lindon and Yerin dealing with some everyday chore that's not at all life-threatening. Like groceries or laundry.
But that depends on me not getting devoured by a sea of unwritten words.
(Scene after the jump.)
P.S. Disclaimer: this excerpt is unedited, and no scenes are final until they are published. I reserve the right to change any or all of this content during the editing process. Or if I just want to mess with you.
