I gotta post something, right? I gotta keep fresh material coming at you or else you’ll go elsewhere for your thrice weekly dose of “cussin’” and poetry and drunken diatribes. So here’s a post - and this one’s just a sort of update on something really cool that’s happening in Kenyon world.
You don’t know this (well, some of you do), but I’ve written 2 novels and 2 pieces of 2 more. One novel - King of Karma - though it has good parts in it, is on the whole unpublishable - a learning experience from years back. Another novel - San Guillermo - is complete, but it’s part of a growing narrative that I’ll work on, I promise, once I publish a “standalone”. You guys are reading and listening to one of the unfinished novels - A War Between States, which by the way I should have another installent of next week.
Which brings us to the unfinished work with the working title Hood. Right now, I’m exactly 6 chapters away from finishing Hood, and so you gotta understand: finishing that book, which has taken me 4 years to write (having kids slowed me down, plus I sort of got “lost” in it for a while), is PRIORITY NUMBER ONE. I like what I’m doing with this site, but if I don’t finish this novel - whether I get it published or not - I don’t think I’ll ever be able to write a novel again. And that would be a blow to me as a writer.
So bear with me. There’s still a lot of material out there for me to present to you - it’s just gonna come in dribs and drabs over the next 2 or 3 weeks while I burn up the final pages of this book.
And if you wanna read the book after it’s finished, that can be arranged.
Oh, and if you’re an agent or publisher and you’re interested in an “Urban Horror Fantasy” and you like what you see at this site and think my style might translate well to that sort of thing, drop me a line.
