Projects

Wherein is listed current projects by the biomechanoid…

Novels (Completed, Unpublished, Locked in Gaol)

Elemental Metal: An urban fantasy novel about Jacob Byrne, unwilling mystical cyborg and repo man, as he’s caught between different supernatural factions in Washington DC’s graveyard shift. The Fae, the wolves, the vampires and the sorcerers are on the edge of war, and the life Jake has built could come crashing down in a hot second. When the worlds of politics and automotive repossession collide, the next thing jamming DC’s streets could be bodies.

Running Black: An urban fantasy novel. Reporting on DC’s supernatural graveyard shift had its risks, but Joscelyn Lao, a metro reporter for an on-line newspaper, never thought her coverage of city council meetings and real estate sales would put her on a hit list. So she turns to the only person she knows with the skills to survive being hunted – intelligence agent, killer, and werewolf, Cyrus Vaughn.

Novels (In Progress, In Outline, In The Grinder)

Ivre: The Politics of the Bow (tentative title): A sword & sorcery style fantasy novel about two travelers, Adia Black-Blade and Tellus of the Anutai Clan, and the events which transpired upon there visit to the city of Ivre. Born of too many nights reading Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs. On track for 2013 completion.

Update: First draft is completed – but on hold for now. Still noodling and editing it, but am focusing more on short stories and another project. Parts have been posted, but it’s proving problematic…

Metaphysical Graffiti (tentative title): What do graffiti tags, abandoned homes, strange men with unusual toasters and the Tanzos Theorem of Waffle House Connectivity have in common? Alejandro and Shannon have found out. They are the key to a world hidden behind our own, where cults fight for access to a world where the memories of civilization pile up like driftwood. Unknown Armies is entirely to blame for this idea.

Update: Currently on hold. I’m finding the story is running too long and the emotional thread needs to be reworked.  A re-plotting is in order to really focus on the meat of the story, and to work out the characters a bit more.

Dreaming Stars (was The Screaming Gate):  A cursed alien ship. A gateway into another realm. Terror and beauty blended like paint on a canvas. This is my attempt to bring the visuals and sensations of a Druillet illustration into novel form.

Update: I’ve been working on and expanding the universe as a whole, trying to write short stories for the characters. I think I have at least two, maybe three, novels worth of material here. It’s also informed some of my other short stories, including the one published in Alien Artifacts.

Untitled Cyberpunk Journalist Project: Think of this as Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex meets Spotlight and All the President’s Men.

Phantoms: I’ll add more about this here later in 2017.

Short Stories

I’m committing myself to writing and submitting stories throughout the year. Any flash fiction I create I’ll be adding to this blog as an ‘orphan.’ Should I get any stories or flash fiction items published, I’ll have updates on the main blog.
