Friday Fiction: In A French Café

So here we are. This was originally intended as February’s Friday Fiction, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. It’s also a sequel to the August Friday Fiction piece, Waking Up, picking up six months after the end of that story (so if you haven’t ready it yet, now’s a good opportunity!).

I always planned to do a second story in that particular little universe and when I was casting around for something that would be suitable for a Valentinesy story, this seemed to fit the bill. It’s not a romance, just two people learning to find their way – one a little more literally than the other!

Whether or not there will be any more to Davide’s story remains to be seen – I have no plans at the moment, but that’s always subject to change and inspiration!

You Know What They Say About Plans…

The last month has been…interesting. On the one hand, the day job has been fairly quiet. On the other hand, everything else has not.

I’ve hit a wall with the editing of Ved’ma, namely a rather sizable and inescapable plot hole into which most of the last third vanishes. Ooops. Even allowing for the fact that I have at least some of the resolution already written, there isn’t any way this book is going to be edited into a finished version this month.

*insert screaming and tantruming here*

Because of that, things are going to get shuffled around, as follows:

  • I’m now going to aim for a date in July for Ved’ma’s release. This should give me the rest of this month to wrangle the plot hole closed and will (hopefully) make getting the final edits sorted much easier.
  • Sage will move to November (I would say October, but I don’t especially want to spend my vacation wrangling Amazon files!)
  • Hassatar will be sometime in the new year – probably May/June time

There is flexibility there – if things come together much faster, then things will move again, but for now, that’s the plan.

In slightly better news, there will be a Friday Fiction story going up next week – I have three in varying states of doneness, so I’m not sure which one it will be yet, but it will be fun, whatever it is. I probably won’t get a second one finished this month (the priority is Ved’ma, after all!), but I will catch up on what got missed earlier in the year.

At some point.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, that plot hole awaits…

Happy reading 😉
