Even though it's a lot later than I had hoped, Chapter Eight has been posted for Patreons over on my Patreon page. Due to the delay in getting this one out, I will be posting Chapter Nine on the Patreon page before the end of the month at no fee for Patreons. My goal is to get ten chapters done before my hubby goes to a convention in June so I can compile them into a handy pdf that he can read on the plane. I should also have Chapter Seven posted here on the blog by tonight. Please watch for it!
Chapter Seven has been posted on my Patreon page (clicking on the Patreon icon in the upper right of the blog will take you there). That means Chapter Six is now here on the blog. I've also posted part one of the short story "Long Gone Day". You can find it in "Other Stories". Have a great weekend!
Chapter Six has been posted for Patreons, which means Chapter Five has been released here on the blog. Also, part one of the short story "Long Gone Day" is also up over on my Patreon page. "Long Gone Day" is a backstory telling a bit about Maseo's small band of friends with a focus on Michael. I also wanted to share a reference pic for Levi today. I do not own this photo, nor was taken for Gossamer, I just think it's a pretty good representation of Levi if he was real flesh and blood. Have a good weekend everyone!
When I first created my Patreon page, I mentioned a writing group way back when Prodigy and its bulletin boards were still around, some twenty odd years ago. The most influential writer in that group was a woman by the name of Tanya, but myself and the others there who shared our characters and stories knew her as Baroness Telsa. She had an amazing talent for writing, and inspired me to do my best when telling Madeline’s story all those years ago. As time went by, she shared with me that she had a special needs son, and I was amazed how strongly she championed him in the school system, and overcame the challenges that went with having a special needs child.
Following the release of Chapter Five for my Patreons, Chapter Four has just been posted here on the site. Also as a bonus to Patreons, there will be a back story released soon focusing on the ever charming Maseo and his interesting collection of bandmates. Please look forward to it!
I've been working hard on Chapter Five, but it's one of those chapters that is hard to get through. I think it's because I really want to get back to writing Chapter Six! They were originally going to be the same chapter, but once I started getting into it, I realized it was going to end up way too long for one go. Once Chapter Five is posted for the Patreons, Chapter Four will be posted here. It's my plan to keep the Patreons at least one chapter ahead of the site.
In the meantime, I wanted to share some of the music I listen to while I write. Specifically, certain songs that ended up capturing the vibe of certain chapters.
Chapter Three has been posted here on the blog. I hope you enjoy it!
If Gossamer characters were Christmas Carols:
Caslon - "Baby It's Cold Outside"
Madeline - "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
Levi - "This Christmas"
Sorry for the delay, things have been busy lately with the holidays and a bout with the flu, but Chapter Four is finally up on my Patreon page. In this chapter, Madeline starts to learn more about the world she's been tossed into, and we meet a new character, Maseo. Please look forward to it!
Chapter One and Two are now posted on the blog. Meanwhile, Chapter Four is in the final stages and will be posted for Patreons soon. As a bonus, Patreons will also have access to a side story that ties into Chapter Four. Have a great weekend!
As promised, Chapter Three has been posted on my Patreon page. There will be some additional content soon in the Characters & Lore section in support of this chapter and the next one, followed in a few days by a character profile of Caslon. Please look forward to it!
