Today I am working on a short story that I might tell in two parts. These particular stories fit between the cracks of Books 1 & 2 of the Saga of Ukumog, but involve a character that has not yet met the characters in the main thrust of the story. While the main story is written from Wrack's perspective, these cannot be done in that style. Going back and seeing the world through the eyes of the normal 3rd person perspective is interesting after having written about it exclusively from the eyes of a strange undead man. Yet, this change of pace is a little refreshing.
On another note, I am sad to announce that there is no way I will be chosen as the winner of Neil Gaiman's American God's contest on Bookperk.com. After about the 4th day of the contest I slipped from the top 20 (which was the required bracket for the finals) and was never able to regain entry into that elite group. I must confess, my primary purpose for entering in the first place was to meet Neil (who is my hero). The future will undoubtedly hold more chances for that to happen, I am sure. Congratulations to those people who made it to the finals. I know that Neil and the nice people at HarperCollins will make the best choice for the new audio book.
PS. Some syndication of my RSS is causing links to act funny from my feed. While I would love to embed them into this post for each of the things I am talking about, I will refrain until I can figure out why they are breaking elsewhere or I decide "Uzk it!" and just put them in anyway.
