Last online serialization announcement at this blog!


While I'm going to finish keeping Death Mask and Hell's Messenger unlocked till I finish serializing them online, I've made the decision to no longer announce my Archive of Our Own fiction at this blog.

If you're a member of Tuesday Serial, rest assured I'll still announce the remaining chapters of Death Mask there.

If you're a member of Archive of Our Own, all that you need to do is click on the subscribe button on my AO3 profile to receive notices by email of my fic posts there. You'll also receive notices of any future stories I post at my AO3 account. If you're not a member of Archive of Our Own, you can easily join it for free. I have an invitation code that will allow you to skip the queue for new memberships; if you'd like the invitation, please email me.

I mentioned earlier that I was going to be locking down my online fiction (except for the current serializations, till they're complete). That will happen within the next week; if you're not a member of Archive of Our Own, be sure to download any stories of mine that you like there, before I lock them.

Basically, what I'm trying to do is draw a hard line between my online writing life and my professional writing life, so that I won't have financial conflicts between them (other than the obvious conflict of making my stories free at AO3, but I'm happy to do that - I owe the fanfic community tons, and so many fanfic folk are generous with their feedback). The easiest way to draw that hard line is to lock down all my AO3 fic and no longer link to my AO3 fic here or at my website.

E-books will still be announced at this blog. I have a long line of e-books scheduled for this year, with the next one coming out very soon. Plus, if I ever sell any stories to magazines (online or print), I'll announce them here.


Death Mask (The Three Lands)</b>

"I came here hoping you would give me an excuse to kill you, but now I can only feel pity for you – pity and horror."

For eighteen years, he has survived in an army unit where few soldiers live more than two or three years. Now he finds himself in circumstances where his life is a living hell. Will the soldier who defied death find that life is too great a challenge?

Soldiers, spies, slaves, rebels, assassins, gods, and men who set out to break him . . . The Lieutenant of the Border Mountain Patrol will learn that his greatest test is himself.


Hell's Messenger (Life Prison)

"'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.
