Shadows and Lies

Big Changes

Posted on

Okay, so I hinted at this on Twitter practically a month ago, but I’ve been putting off the blog post for God only knows why. Seriously, I don’t know. But here it is.

Mortality is no longer titled Mortality. It’s called The Cursed. 

I still plan on the trilogy being called the Mortality Trilogy, but book one can’t be Mortality. It’s for one simple reason. Starting with Mortality I had no naming convention for books 2 and 3. With The Cursed, book 2 is The Forgotten and book 3 is The Fallen. If any of you come up with a F-word that goes along what ‘cursed’ means, go ahead and throw it in the comments and I’ll take it into consideration for a different title for book one. It would be awesome, but I’m coming up blank.

Oh yes, and Shadows and Lies is also being retitled. It’s now called Shadows Fall. It flows and sounds a lot better than Shadows and Lies though I don’t have books 2 and 3 or that trilogy titled, yet. I’ll keep you in the loop.


Short Snippet Sunday (Sort of)

Posted on Updated on

So this isn’t really a Short Snippet Sunday.

But at the same time it is because it’s a tantalizing look into a soon to be work in progress…

I have a piece of a first draft of this one, but so much has changed in the story that that beginning and most of a middle, has to be scrapped. So basically I’m starting mostly from scratch though certain characters are remaining.

Anyway, the working title for this one is Shadows and Lies.

This is…. like three sentences I think, but it sums up the way my antagonist acts rather well, I think. It’s only a bit of dialogue.

“There are bones in every closet, you know. Sometimes, though, just sometimes, there’s an entire skeleton. Do your friends know about yours, I wonder?”

Yeah. That’s it.

For reference, in case I have mentioned it before and you pay that much attention to what I say, this one’s title used to be Time for Change.
