Just the usual. And a note.
Something that didn’t make it on to the Writing: Projects page last week was my brief attempt at re-homing Elvish Virtues: Faith. The story was sent out mid-week and was back in the kennel by Saturday. As the editor helpfully pointed out, re-homing elves can be hard work as they’re a bit common these days. Which means that writers have to prove that (with links that may explain this all):
- Our Elves Are Better [External Link],
- Our Elves Are Worse [External Link], or if all else fails
- Our Elves Are [Just Plain] Different [External Link]
But you know what? I’m lazy. And my elves, although somewhat evil and therefore second category, are not so well written that I’m going to have an easy time rehoming them. So I have a cunning plan. And this is your advance warning.
Once the last of the Elvish Virtues (Charity) has made it through the Critters’ [External Link] queue, my pets will be unleashed on this web-site. This should be in the next six months or so. The dwarves may eventually follow them. Yes, I know it goes against my more normal pursuit of the “almighty dollar” – or at least recognition – but hey, it’s all basically background material for the main Hound of Kern trilogy. In fact, they did start out as me hammering out “historic” Elvish characters and some back story. You have been warned!
