Paris Je t’aime

Quoting a great friend of mine,

…the immediate destruction and loss of life is horrific, but I think the real attack is worse because of how widespread and insidious the effects are…
and that’s the fear it generates which leads to hate and willingness to sacrifice freedom.
We cannot allow our freedoms to be sacrificed. Decisions forged from steel resolve not from fear… and no quarter for those responsible.

Rambling Voices

And the words come at a flow, a pace that helps me remember why I write. Open cool transference of thoughts to characters, and situations unknown, discovered through the exploration of the mind. And maybe I am trapped, and maybe we are all trapped, but there is a way to freedom. There must be a way to the free spaces, the places in between that define the world we know. Exist in the places between, the space outside the known, and lose yourself in it only to discover that you need to return to the definition in order to know that you’re mad—and the artist says no, there is no madness, there is no sanity, there is only the zombie automaton and freedom, and both are crazy, and both are deadly, and so the artist continues, lost in the meandering dark of the other side of the glass, seeing you as her reflection, wondering what’s wrong with herself, and she turns the mirror around and staring at its back, doesn’t see the difference, and laughs, and feels better, and the artist continues, because the artist isn’t just visiting the other side, the artist lives here, and the artist knows a secret that he cannot share, and the artists that have returned with secrets are charlatans, because an artist can never go back as anything other than an entertainer, and the artist knows the void obscures, knows that no one may ever find him here, but the artist is here anyway, because—and this is what the artist says—“I am not defined by your experience of me,” and so the artist disappears. -Gnomish Explorer

Fifth novel in progress…

Vertical Slice with boarder and textActively working on the second book in the Sunborn Rising series. Vertical Slice of Cerulean concept by artist Matt Gaser to the left :-) .

The first volume, Beneath the Fall, is receiving a lot of praise from the Sneak Peek group! Really exciting to hear from everyone! I can’t say thank you enough for sharing your experience with the story.

Dabbling with a few other short stories that have been waiting in the wings for too long. Not sure if they’ll go live or not. And I have another portrait in my series that I’d like to release soon too.

I also finally updated the cover art for Evening Breezes here on my website.

That’s the update for now. Most of what I’m doing is related to Sunborn Rising, and you can sign up for the official newsletter to get the latest info.

As always, if you want to be in on the Sneak Peek you can write to me, aaron@neoglyphic.com . I can’t guarantee all requests, but I’ll do my best, and I’m on my email everyday.

Cheers!

Neoglyphic Entertainment, Co-Founder and Chief Storyteller!

Finally, able to formally announce what I’ve been working on for more than a year!

Finished writing my fourth novel, Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall!

I’m super excited to working with a great crew of creatives, developing a new franchise and a platform to launch that franchise into a full spectrum of media!

Wish me luck!

(Oh, and tangentially, I’m working on some new short stories… but keep that on the down low. I’m supposed to be editing.)

Thank you!

Forgot to publish a short story?

Well, I’m placing it here now. Not sure why I didn’t publish it? Maybe I planned to edit it again? Who knows? 😀 Honestly, I should edit it, but I’m in the middle of submitting the fourth novel to a sneak peek reader group and that’s the highest priority today.

Anyway, Cost of Comfort. I remember liking it when I wrote it…

GISHWHES Entry!

My friend, Ellery, contacted me last week to participate in his scavenger hunt, GISHWES. He needed a science fiction author to write a 140 word story about an Elopus, Misha Collins, and the Queen of England.

I researched Misha–cool guy worth reading about, and the Elopus–Elephant Octopus, of course. It was fun to experiment, and I’m glad I took the time to play :-) .

The contest has ended. I hope the team did well! Enjoy the short:

Her Majesty’s Secret Servant

Misha watched The Man leave with Monica, but kept his head low, his hands busy. A quirky smile curled his lips; a question on his mind.

Opening his desk drawer, Misha removed a medium-sized, fire-blackened jar filled with murky, viscous liquid. Eyes closed, he swiveled the jar twice gently, and then flipped it over. Through a small clear window in the glass, two tentacles emerged. A head sprouting a long trunk and floppy oversized ears pushed between the suction-cupped limbs into the porthole.

Misha nodded, “Knew it! Scandal.”

“What’s that?” A snooping intern asked over Misha’s shoulder, “an octophant?”

“It’s an elopus larval-calf. I found it on the greatest international scavenger hunt the world has ever seen seconds before the old lady. God save the Queen.”

Misha winked. The elopus winked back. “I’m going to need a bigger jar.”

Last Portrait for awhile…

As promised, the last in my portrait series, J.M., is now available. Honestly, I expect to revisit this one someday and to continue the series as well. I believe the project is the worth the time. :-)

Otherwise, it’s onward and upward for Beneath the Fall!

Thank you!

New Portrait! Update.

Just added another portrait, A.K.. Please check it out. Again, it’s another personal piece that maybe I had to do for me more than anyone else. I haven’t shared this one yet with the subject… always worry about that:-). I don’t think it can ever be perfect and sometimes, the imperfections are what make it right.

As far as other works are concerned, still cooking Beneath the Fall at a steady boil. So much is going on! Can’t express it all here, but damn exciting! Along those lines, I’ll be finishing up my last portrait for awhile, J.M., in the next day or so. After that, I’m going all in on Beneath the Fall!! Still trying to make it out this year!

Thank you!
