Second Gate: Chapter Eighteen

Posted in Updates on June 28, 2010 by chemiclord

Chapter Eighteen.

Yeah, in case you didn’t realize something was a little bit unusual about Timothy (aside from having like… zero social skills and that he is a man capable of nigh miraculous feats using nothing but his mind), you should kinda figure it out by the time you’re done here.

Even among the oddities that are Erani Knights, something is rather… strange about that fellow.

Bah, it probably has nothing to do with the story.

Two Years Ago Today…

… I told TOR publishing just what they could use and where they could use it sideways.

There are times where I think I made completely the wrong decision, like on the day I told them to take a hike.

But then there are others where I realize that this is my creation.  This is my world.  I made this; and I certainly didn’t make it to sell it to some board of stuffed shirt millionaires to make more money off of and surrender all control to.

And that’s why I’ve told every publisher I’ve talked to the same thing.  This is mine. You want to be a part of that, I’ll talk.  But don’t assume that just because you wave a meager check in my face that I’ll let you have it all.

That’s never going to happen.

Second Gate: Chapter Seventeen

On schedule; Chapter Seventeen.

Yeah, can you believe we’re about a third of the way through at this point?

I’m just going to pretend the response isn’t; “We’re only a third of the way through?”

See you all next Monday!

Second Gate: Chapter Sixteen

As it says on the package, Chapter Sixteen.

Yes, astonishingly enough, Timothy does something unplanned and perhaps ill-advised, even though he tries to play it off like a minor inconvenience.

Occasionally he does things like that.

Second Gate: Chapter Fifteen

And here is Chapter Fifteen.

If you read the Short Stories, you would already know Knight Fransisca is a scheming double-crossing snake.   So don’t scream at me that I’m ruining the story for you if you hadn’t taken the time to read them.
