So, my Dad is insisting that I renew my love of fanfiction writing again — as I *need* a hobby and apparently, according to him, I really enjoyed writing fanfiction and it was a really great hobby for me.
New blog post up on my website — about the Hardcover, an update on life, and self-esteem XD
I’m putting the usernames in a notebook to give to my family when I finally come out to them. They told me once when I was little that if I ever came out to be gay to not tell anyone because they thought I’d be judged so please reblog so I can show them that people in my generation are different than theirs.
I’m not coming out until I fill the notebook. So if you want to help?

Finally having finished all the work on the hardcover illustrations I am free to do other stuff :D :D :D
So today I decided to scribble some characters from Book 2. Some designs for Madalin and one of her many children, Tjokl, who fancies himself a future Paladin.
Madalin is the first wife of a half-breed Kimwyn/Kelib — she is also the Head Kelib or the Mor-Mor (Mother-Mother) of the caravan that Daniel joins. I really wanted to show the incredible color and vibrant life of the pilgrims of the Spider Road, that these people have their own culture long establish from generations of travelling the same path. Through Madalin, her sisters and husband, Daniel learns to be a better leader.
Her family has a larger roll in Cities of Gold, but it is nice to spend the time establishing them in Book 2 :D
An Author and her Cat :D
I’ve had a pretty awful week pain-wise in which I have spent most evenings curled in bed (crying) and Aislinn has been absent from my life, choosing to stay at my parents because their heater is apparently *so* much nicer than mine.
She is such a snob-princess of a cat (but I love her)
I’ve been trying to encourage her to return home to keep me company :) Tonight we have had fun with a camera…
I noticed this hole while putting the illustrations together into the typesetting of the hardcover.
If you’ve happened to read Key then this many make sense — prologue Hazanin, who makes a brief appearance at the end of the prologue.
Alive Hazanin and dead Hazanin are pretty different characters really. One is a lingering program clutching to the last fragments of code, the other is a desperate mother-ship type warrior queen who is trying to protect the only hope created for man-kind/world.
In book two you learn more about Hazanin’s ‘golem’ Gwenhwyfar the ‘Fairy Queen’ and Hazanin explains to Shanty that people can break the illusion of a Zaprex by choosing to see what they desire to see, hence why Hazanin’s human sons, David and Daniel, ‘see’ the Zaprex form and not her Human golem while everyone else see’s the golem — because they choose to see the true form under the ‘clay-pot’.
Almost done. I cannot believe it…
I just keep finding spots to fill! LOL
How would you react if someone came up to you, claiming to be a character from one of your stories?
Well Anonymous, that’s a pretty awesome question ^^
I would first be pretty shocked and probably react in that manner with a small freak out (cause I don’t tend to get recognized by anyone other than at the local cafe I visit) and then be like 'whoa, whoa — wait — you know my stories and you're claiming to be who?' and then I would proceed to ask many questions.
Now if said someone was actually dressed as said character then I would be incredibly impressed and I would lavish them the highest of praise and possibly become their instant best friend. XD And it would be a happy story with a really happy ending!
It would be a very interesting experience and I would be amused for quite awhile I am sure.
I hope that answers you question :)
Thanks for asking!
