*tiny squeaking sounds of glee*

I have a collaborative project with my long-term writing partner, SL Gray/shadowhwk. Sarah and I have written (quite literally: I counted once) millions of words together, and this particular project has been in the works for, heavens forfend, well over a decade now. It was originally conceived as a TV show, back when we were both living in California (and before, even) and had dreams of breaking into that industry.

It took us something like a decade to think of presenting it in a different format. Time, tide and … trousers … (o.O) have kept us from really doing much with it. But a while ago we shook the dust off and decided to give it a go as a fiction project. Sarah’s just sent me the second chapter, and I am full of excited squeaks about the idea of getting this story some air time.

I’ll talk more about it as we get our feet more solidly under us, but I can just about guarantee that this will be a Kickstarter project. And I mean, holy crap, people, when we get it going? You’re going to be blown away. We’ve got a fifty page bible for this project which I’m sure will end up as part of the long term reward structure, we’ve got world development out the wazoo, we’ve just got ALL KINDS of good stuff, and I cannot wait to share it with you. Cannot. WAIT.

THE OLD RACES : AFTERMATH

OLD RACES: AFTERMATH Margrit Knight has broken the long-held covenants of the Old Races. Ancient rivals are scattered, friendships are broken, and the dragons, djinn, selkies, vampires and gargoyles are beginning to step out of the shadows and into the light.

But the new world may not be what they expect. Dragonlord Janx faces more than he bargained for when human magic interferes with his own. Half-vampire Ursula Hopkins is only starting to understand what she may have unleashed by awakening her brethren, and Margrit Knight herself still has debts to pay after the death of a djinn…

Watch the new world unfold in these four new stories of the Old Races…

Coming soon to an e-store near you!

Cover art by Tara O’Shea. IS IT NOT AWESOME?!?!?!?! Holy crap, tell you what, actually seeing Margrit as a black woman for the first time nearly made me fall out of my chair. I am SO HAPPY with this cover I could squee. Like this:

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
