I like to fancy myself a writer: indeed, I have been writing (mostly fiction) for the better part of my life. I can remember writing little stories with a friend of mine back when I was in grade 1, and it’s been something of a passion of mine for quite some time. Back in 2011, I published my first novel: Galaxy 2,000,000,000 Darkness Falls. While it wasn’t exactly the commercial miracle I had hoped it would be at the time, I don’t regret publishing it.
And while I have been hard(ly) at work on the sequel, ideas and concepts for new books keep popping into my mind like you wouldn’t believe. And so, I’ve concocted a plan to stem some of the flow of these ideas, as well as test out a potential business model that I’d like to pursue (in fact, this whole blog is a testing site for that; more on that another day).
And so, I shall be working on a little story series that’ll be published to this blog once a week, Thursdays at 5:30pm Eastern Time Zone. All the entries will be (ideally) located under a separate page titled The Whyte Gear Articles, and assuming I’ve set up the pages accordingly, should contain a series of sub-pages for each chapter of the story.
At present time, it’s looking to be a 10 chapter story. This will possibly change based on plot developments or demand. We’ll see.
The first story will be a steampunk mystery/horror, and if you want more details, be sure to check out the page later this afternoon when it publishes. It’s also worth noting that, while all the characters and content of this work will be original, I’m leaving it with a Creative Commons licence.
If you’re interested, I’d encourage you to check it out and read the story as it unfolds. Comments and critiques will be welcomed and, in fact encouraged; as well as feedback if these kinds of stories would be something you’d be interested in supporting in the future (preferably monetarily, but, again again, more on that later).
At the very least, it should be a fun little exercise for myself and an interesting distraction for you, dear reader. I’ll be putting somewhere on this blog a following option so that you can see when the next post updates (but pending unforeseen circumstances, it should be fairly regularly).
Thanks for tuning in; hope to see you again!
