Summary: The Revenant—eternal spirits—have merged with the people of earth for thousands of years. To some, the joining of two souls is an honor, and to others, it is a nightmare.

Gais Marius is one of the oldest Revenants to continue to seek a physical existence. Things take a dangerous turn in Pegasus when he is forced to seek a new anchor.

The summer passed by quickly, right?

Newsletter July 2017

I think Rough Trade is going well for me but I’m very comfortable in the episode format so I didn’t expect it to be much of a challenge on that front. I essentially failed to pants though–I had to stop and plot as to avoid driving myself crazy. I’m writing episode 5 and I’m enjoying the change of pace I’ve plotted for this one.

Newsletter June 2017

My brain is all over the place and my writing is certainly been impacted by it. I mean, seriously, I think one word another comes out of my mouth or gets typed out. It’s crazy and I know a thing or two about “making insane”.

February 2017 Newsletter

I’m plugging right along on the writing front. The weather sucks. I’m tired of experiencing all of the seasons in a four-day cycle. I’ve been fiddling with a Girl McKay which you might have noticed and expanded my short into a story/episode. I’ve plotted about 10 of them and I’m pretty amused with the whole thing. I’ve already almost finished the second episode and it’ll probably go into beta next week sometime.

November 2016 Newsletter

Sometimes I hate my brain because it never stops. Just about half way through my NANO story, I came to realize that my structure is deeply flawed. This comes from a creator perspective because I’m not getting there in the writing and by “there” I mean I’m not seeing the story develop the way I wanted it to develop. The premise is a lot bigger in my head than what I’ve been able to put down in real, actual words.

October 2016 Newsletter

You might have noticed a bunch of shorts being posted to my site. They’re my responses to short prompts we are hosting on RT. They’re literally writing exercises for me and I’m sharing them here because I figured you might want to read them. They are not “ideas or prompts” that you can take and expand on. I’m serious. Don’t take my work and expand it — that is really fucking rude to be both do and to do suggest.
