A personal Advertisement

Hello everyone,

before anyone asks, yes, I’m writing, yes, it’s coming along, but this is a huge chapter and I want to do it all in one go, even though it’s already as big as two updates, so I’m still writing.

Meanwhile, I’ve got something I’d like to advertise:

One of my favourite academics, Frank Erik Pointner, is working on a passion project of his, writing Christmas music and recording it with a friend of his for the vocals, and his own guitar play. They’ve already produced two songs and are working on more.

You can find both songs on youtube, following these links:

First Christmas

Christmas All Alone

Or you can search for “Roseate” in youtube and you’ll find them that way.

Take a look if you’re interested and share it if you like it!

Patreon Vote coming up

The Patreon vote on the upcoming interlude chapters is coming up today. A while ago, though, I sent a message (over Patreon) to my Tier 2 patron, and haven’t gotten an answer with his suggestion for Interlude content yet.

If you could answer me briefly (maybe patreon just didn’t notify you) within the next 4 hours, I can include your suggestion in the vote!

Progress 06/11/16

By popular demand, here’s a progress report^^

I’m up to about 2000 words on the new chapter, and I’m aiming for at least 3000 before I publish it. Should have the whole day free to write tomorrow, so… be cautiously optimistic.

PS: By tomorrow, I mean, today. As in, the 6th of November. After I sleep.

PPS: Stars above, I’m tired.


Alright, so. What the hell is going on?

I’m pretty sure that’s what you’re all thinking. At least those who still bother to care about this blog (I don’t blame anyone who doesn’t.)

I’ll be brief. Maybe I’ll write something longer over the week, to explain myself more fully, but I think it’s best to be brief for now.

In short, life sucks and I gotta deal with it. I spent the last two and a half months mostly doing three things – sleeping, working my two jobs and writing exams/essays/term papers. Sometimes all in one day.

Did I have no time to write? Or to at least come online on the blog, post some facts, chat with people?

Of course not. I had time. There is always time.

What I didn’t have was energy.

This may sound weird, but… everything takes energy. And you only have so much of it every day. If you’re in a bad place, you have to really manage what you do, because otherwise, you might end up not doing a thing.

So… what am I trying to say? Did I not care enough? Maybe. I think not. I love this blog, this story, and my readers. You guys have been great, and I hate to disappoint like this.

But sometimes, you think at the end of a day something like this: “Not today. I don’t feel like going online today.”

The next day, you honestly don’t have the time. The one after that, you forget about it. Then you have another day when you’re just demotivated.

And then, suddenly, it’s been two months. You suddenly realise that you’ve been ignoring it all for weeks and you don’t even know how that happened.

What I’m trying to say, I guess…

I’m sorry. I’ll try to do better.

I’m sorting a lot of things out in my life, right now. Hopefully, I can present a more concrete plan soon.

Until then, I hope you’ll show a little more patience with me. I may not deserve it, but I hope to earn it yet.



Random Facts #5, 6 & 7

Sorry about the absence. Progress on the chapter is slow but it’s coming along.

#5 Queen Madeleine’s first act as monarch of Australia was to outlaw torture. Up until then, what few authorities remained in the country were allowed to use torture in the course of their duties.

#6 South Italy, Egypt, Libya, Algeria and Morocco are mostly ruled by metahuman power groups in a nearly feudal system.

#7 The Knights of the Round Table are Britain’s primary team of superheroes, working with permission and support from the Crown & Congress itself.

Not Dead & Random Fact #1

I’m not dead (yet)! Working on the chapter, though I’m quite busy with a lot of other stuff, too.

As a small apology, I’ve decided to start a “Random Fact” series. Every day that a chapter is overdue, I’m gonna share some random fact from the Brennusverse with you guys and gals.

To that end, I’ve assembled a long list of interesting (hopefully) but not plot-critical facts, and I’m gonna roll every day from now on on it, until I complete this chapter.

Here’s the first one:

  • Hemming is not only the most skilled, but also the fastest shapeshifter in the world, capable of taking on 300 (400 if he really pushes it) distinct forms per minute. He can shapeshift quickly and precisely enough that, if fired at from point-blank range, he can create a hole the size of the bullet for it travel through.
