Coming October 13th!

In a little over a week I will post here on this site the first fully-public Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos short story. Here have a teaser:

 

He was once the greatest fighter the world that he had known had ever known…

Respected by his peers, feared by his challengers… He was on top of the world. No one could topple him.

But all that changed when she showed up. He was beaten, and he lost everything. Except his home. And his friends. And those things that are required to stay alive such as food and air. But he definitely lost his confidence and his talent. No more was he on top of the world; now he was nothing, nobody nowhere, nohow, ‘no’ why? ‘Cause he lost.

But now he risks losing everything that he didn’t lose when he lost everything unless he can find his lost confidence and talent and save the orphanage his home…

“THIS STORY ISN’T NEARLY AS DEEP AND SUBSTANTIAL AS YOU’RE MAKING IT OUT TO BE. IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE SHORT AND SILLY.”

Shut it up, you.

“WHY DON’T YOU COME OVER HERE AND MAKE ME?”

… Touché, buddy.

 

COMING OCTOBER THIRTEENTH: “Tough as Blades

Whoa. I’ve been out of my own loop. Let me update the universe.

So I really haven’t been saying much lately–not even on Twitter. Maybe I should fix that?? Maybe i should update everyone on where I went??

I mean, at first it was because I suddenly had an incredibly sharp drop in my time due to getting a job, my first job, a temp job. Well, I’m still in training. But last week and the week before I was off, so what’s my excuse there? I got a new game system and games. Yes, I’ve been distracted by video games. I’ve still been doing some work, but I’ve just been playing too much video game lately. Maybe I can get back to normalcy soon?? Like, today??

Here’s the point of this post, though. Sometime in the past month (I hope) I expanded the “About” page to include a page about the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos. A week or so ago I actually wrote up the about CCC page, although I definitely plan to expand it as time goes on and ideas for what to add come.

Looking ahead, I’m going to start making posts about creatures and locations of the CCC. You may have noticed a few categories: Characters, Creatures, and Locations. If you did notice, you probably forgot ’cause it’s been so dang long since I used ’em. Well, the first of the three have posts specifically about them, but the other two don’t. These posts won’t be going into any great detail, but will include an overview of the creatures and locations. I don’t want to overwhelm people with everything in my personal encyclopedia, but maybe I can introduce some stuff if people want to know more about it, before or after reading my books.

Last thing: Look for something special coming in about a month, during the first half of October. What is it? Special! Aside from special? Not really all that special! L…Look, it’s a short story, okay?
