Release of Flayed

Louis Puster

This book was a long time coming. I really struggled to get it out there into the world. Mostly because writing isn't my full time gig, so it was at odds with other aspects of my life. Once I got into a routine, and found ways to navigate the roadblocks and other demands on me, things got easier. Don't ever let anyone tell you that writing novels is easy.

Once the book was done, and we got the final version of the manuscript complete, I then turned my attention to the layout and art. Only doing complicated things, like doing the internal layout of a book, once every year makes them so much harder than they would be if I did them regularly. I am still such a novice at the writing part, let alone trying to manipulate images and making covers. Still, I muddled and bungled my way through it, and I am very glad I did so.

So, if you have picked up a copy of Flayed, thank you for reading. Thank you for contributing to the story that rolls around in my head. Just you reading it means that I am not alone in the story. We share this journey together. That is, quite frankly, amazing.

Please, enjoy the story. If I make you feel one real emotion for these characters or their situation I feel like I have done my job. Hopefully it can happen more than once. I promise that I will do my very best to get you the next part of the story faster than the last.

Happy new year.

Serial publishing experiment

Louis Puster

A few hours ago I received an email from JukePop.com, a serial publishing site. For those of you who don't know, serial publishing is where an author puts up work chapter by chapter and allows for people to read, comment, and subscribe to their work. They sometimes put portions or the entire book behind a paywall so that you have to pay to read it.

JukePop is a website and an app, allowing people to read things on the go, and they seem very focused on creating a community around authors and readers. Which I find rather compelling.

Wrack's birthday

Louis Puster

In 2005 I started writing something. That something was a simple few pages for something else, but it left me with a question. A hole into a world that was not the original world that I was writing about. I blew off the curiosity that I had for that other place, those other characters. I tried to ignore it. That didn't go as I had planned.

Shadow of the Pyramid, Chapter 2

Louis Puster

Posted for your enjoyment, this unedited segment of the story.  I admit, it does still need some polishing:

Chapter 2

The people who lived in the shadow of the Great Pyramid talked in hushed whispers about the world beyond.  Few had been to the edge of the shadow and seen the brilliant sands that lay beyond the borders of Shatter.  One thing all the stories had in common: The painful brightness of the sun.
