Hi all! The cohorts and I are closing in on the end of our Marionettes in the Mist serial project - the chapters are all written, we're just in the final weeks of posting them for you. The adventures of Nootau, Tibo, Ashe, Mal and their various love interests and allies will come to an end on the blog, but the next step will be expanding the story and editing it for novel format.
Um. About that. We may have written a little more than we thought we would. Our original estimate was that we'd end up with one large novel of about 140K words. Yeah. No. There will be three substantial volumes, the final word count not something we want to predict right now.
Marionettes in the Mist (A Dark Spaces Universe story) appears Mondays and Thursdays on the Mischief Corner Books blog and is written by Freddy MacKay, J. Scott Coatsworth, Toni Griffin and yours truly.
Mila May has been doing an amazing job with character art for the story as well - a few more to come but here's who we have so far. :)
The lovely folks at My Fiction Nook invited me over to be their Author of the Month for March. Pretty darn chuffed about that. :D Last week featured Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists and Brandywine Investigations with a bit about my 5 Favorite Biology Things.
Author of the Month - Angel Martinez - Week One
This week features the demon owned and operated ship, Brimstone, and 5 Little Known Facts About Angel. (Yeah, some of you have heard some of these before. Maybe. Possibly. ;) )
Author of the Month - Angel Martinez - Week Two
Writing nearly came to a standstill for Bishounen Con. I'm back on the word count horse this week, though. Feral Dust Bunnies (Offbeat Crimes 4) is coming along slowly - on chapter 2. Should look better in the next couple of days.
Pack Up the Moon (Brandywine 5) is waiting for me to finish the Dust Bunnies. I did get to read from it at Bishounen to a wonderfully appreciative audience, though. Always fun.
We're also coming to the end of the Marionettes in the Mist story arc. (The weekly blog serial written with Freddy MacKay, J. Scott Coatsworth and Toni Griffin.) Everyone's on their last two to four chapters. We'll wrap up the postings on the blog and then work on getting the story out in novel(s) format. Yay! Some of the lovely character art from Mila May below so far!
Angel writes (mostly) Science Fiction and Fantasy centered around queer heroes. Currently living part time in the hectic sprawl of northern Delaware and full time inside her head, she has one husband, one son, two cats, a love of all things beautiful and a terrible addiction to the consumption of both knowledge and chocolate.
