Or at least the long-deferred rewrite of The Dinosaur Lords has.
Though it does promise to be an adventure….
Just finished reading through The Editor’s notes, right up through Chapter 03. Which as of three days ago you can read for free online.
For the most part, quite good. As expected. There are also a few notes [...]
So this morning at 4:48 AM The Editor sent me another chapter of editorial notes.
In honor of the fact that this thing is finally becoming really real (really!) I’ve decided to post Chapter 03 of the submitted (what I call beta) version of The Dinosaur Lords. In which we wrap up the min-arc begun in [...]
As in, oh, holy carp, the ACTUAL EDITORIAL NOTES for The Dinosaur Lords are here! Finally.
The first of them, anyway. Covering, umm … through the end of Chapter 01.
They are pretty … comprehensive. Which is fine. There are a couple things I see which call for some discussion. Mostly they look pretty sound.
So now I’m [...]
No, not Poltergeists, silly. They’d be afraid to come here.
No, only the long-awaited editorial notes for the first novel of my senses-shattering epic fantasy trilogy, The Dinosaur Lords!
Not the actual annotated pages. Yet. But a letter from The Editor, giving preliminary notes, and promising actual pages tomorrow. Which counts, so I’m not looking that gift-Tyrannosaurus [...]
So I just spent a happy, productive late morning/early afternoon designing, oh, I don’t know – just La Majestad, the capital city of the Empire of Nuevaropa.
Enjoy this picture of an adorable fossil dino that has paleontologists suspecting all meat-eaters – or possibly all dinosaurs – had feathers.
Because, if you haven’t yet sampled the [...]
… of a brand-new character!
Except, actually on my Facebook Wall. But “live-Facebooking” is less snappy and overly clunky.

(FYI: I’m basically condensing the original post plus comment stream, Plus adding some new content, so even if you’ve read the thread, you still [...]
“Lord Karyl, I’m your death.”
Yes, that’s it: the first line of Book II of the Ballad of Karyl’s Last Ride: The Dinosaur Princes.
Except … not exactly. (Wait for it….)
Movement on The Dinosaur Lords front!
No, the Official Editorial Rewrite Notes still haven’t gotten here. The good news is that there is reason to believe they are about to.
The bad news was I also got what I thought was reason to suspect the editor was going to ask me to make fundamental changes to the [...]
Or at least part of it – the part of the world called Paradise where all the action in The Dinosaur Lords takes place: the Empire of Nuevaropa, which occupies the body of land called the Tyrant’s Head.
Visit scenic Nuevaropa!
I told you I was working on the map! See how wrong you were to [...]
… And it’s almost two and a half months yet to Halloween!
So I finally nerved myself to go over the contracts for The Dinosaur Lords. (I admit I was giving in to fear some, here – a habit I am working diligently to break, and making fine progress overall. Still, obviously I am still no [...]
