Chapter 35 of Martha’s Children, with the end in sight

Ned’s attempt to establish a vampire police bureau has gotten tangled up in a sorcerers’ war pitting Martha Fokker against Edward Cross. Martha is not known for the sweetness of her temper. She’s going to put an end to this war for good by killing Cross. Only Cross has a few tricks up his sleeve that Martha never anticipated! See the sorcerers finally meet in chapter 35 of Martha’s Children, my serial of cops, vampires, sorcerers, and stuffy parties.

And with chapter 35, Martha’s Children is only a few chapters from its end. As I did at the end of The Dragon Lady of Stockbridge, I expect I’ll take a month away from regular postings to this blog to recuperate and decide what should go next. After two stories of violence and confrontation, I’m thinking the next long story should be of a much different nature. There’s a good chance I’ll go back to the same universe as Dragon Lady, though it’s unlikely any of the same characters will figure in the story. (There are two Abigail Lane stories and one Amy Van Duesen story sitting around, partially completed. But none of them are anywhere near ready.) For that matter, the story that follows up the survivors of Martha’s Children forty years later is a considerably different story, too. We’ll see.

    I loved DLS, and I’d love to read anything related, or one of the stories you mentioned. But judging by the fact I got comepletely into a vampire story (moi? vampires? alors, oui), I’ll probably like anything you’ll write… Good luck, my talented friend!

      DLS-universe stories are the most likely possibility, especially since the follow-up to “Martha’s Children” requires extensive replotting to expand it and to adjust it for what I learned in MC.
