After three weeks off, I’m beginning a new story, Martha’s Children. It’s another tale of the supernatural. In chapter 1, Chicago cop Ned O’Donnell wakes up, to find himself tied up in a dark room. And things just go downhill from there. Find out how, by reading chapter 1 of the story here. New chapters will follow every Friday, starting March 1, 2013.
Martha’s Children is a different type of story from The Dragon Lady of Stockbridge. It’s not in the same fictional universe. It’s not told the same way. In other words, it’s another experiment, just as Dragon Lady was.
For those of you who liked Dragon Lady, I hope Martha’s Children will also be to your taste. If it isn’t, the best I can offer right now is that I’m planning another history story set in the Sillyverse around 1930-34, when the Office of Occult Affairs undergoes a dramatic change. Parts of it have already been written, but I don’t know just yet when I will finish them or where they will appear.
I’ll be looking forward to it.
I’m going to read Huckman tonight, and I’ve got some time coming this weekend to start the Dragon Lady.
I love the sound of waking up tied up, very chilling just in the idea.
Let me know how you like (or, should matters so fall out, dislike) them.
Poor Ned is in for a lot of creepy experiences. The question driving the story is how he’ll cope with them.
This is a great read, thank you for more inspiration to write!
Went looking over at your blog, to which I need return soon to actually watch some videos. Multimedia stories are nothing to sneeze at!
I saw this post come in and meant to say YAY!! as your first comment…but life got in the way!! So a belated Yay!! The new experiment is great so far!!
Brian, if you’ll continue writing at this pace, I’ll probably never read anything else 🙂 I had some guests from the Land Down Under who laughed their poor hearts out reading Ms. Wedlock’s first paranormal romance… Seriously, I must say that your writing inspires me to read more of this kind of litaerature with which I was not familiar before. To my surprise a lot has been translated into Hebrew. I, of course, being a snob, will never read the translation… but it is interesting to notice it has quite a following even in this remote corner of the Med.
Thanks for passing along the reaction of the Australians to the paranormal romance! And I suppose I should apologize for debasing your reading tastes and monopolizing your attention. 😉
