notes

It is useful to take notes on future paths for the story, IF --

You remember to consult them later.

It is very annoying to do so after several weeks of trying to figure out how to get the heroine to do something risky to look back and realize that I had made a note of the perfect motive, which would not only get her acting, but tie back into the other plot thread, AND put a time limit on her decision.

Songs of Sorrow and Hope

Songs of Sorrow and Hope: The Art of Jenny Dolfen by Jenny Dolfen

A collection of her work, from drawing to full paintings, with some discussion of techniques, quite a bit about inspirations (a lot of Tolkien), and a walk through of how one work was completed.

A lot of lovely stuff.

super publishing!

I publish again! And this time, it's superheroes! The novella "Through A Mirror, Darkly" is now available in e-book form! (Print form to be forthcoming within a week, I hope!)


Through A Mirror, Darkly

What lies behind a reflection?

Powers have filled the world with both heroes and villains. Helen, despite her own powers, had acquired the name Sanddollar but stayed out of the fights.

When the enigmatic chess masters create a mirrored world reflecting her own home and the world about it, it's not so easy to escape. All the more in that the people of that world are a dark reflection of all those she knows.
