Faint primal impulses flooded Urzen. They called him to stand. To clench his fists. To bellow, stalk, hunt until he found prey worth the killing!
Hello, readers mine! Today I’ve started on line-edits for The Necromancer and the Reaping Spear. The total number of preview chapters will be greater this time, partly due to chopping a couple of over-long ones in half, partly because I’m going to share two that I previously didn’t. Each preview chapter I post will arrive […]
Right. Um. Let me start off by saying that I’ll try my best to stop this growing too weird. So, the primary developmental edit of The Necromancer and the Reaping Spear is done. It’s wonderful stuff and I’m proud of it. It’s just that I forgot to make time at any point in the past […]
(Editorial Note, Nov. 29 2020: I’ve left this post up for posterity, but if you haven’t already, you should read this one first: Making Points, Mental Health, and the Necromancer’s Vengeance Series (northbornsword.blog) –in short, yes, everything written and posted today on the 29th is something I was fighting myself over when I wrote and […]

Winter rains streamed down black bows and dribbled along emerald creepers. Somewhere downhill, through the storm-misted labyrinth of the bogs, a creature clucked and chirped from deep in its gullet.
Hello, readers mine! Continuing this new experiment of posting the chapters which will be part of the free preview of The Necromancer and the Reaping Spear, here’s the first working version of the second chapter. Writing this unrighteous leviathan of a chapter just about shattered my consciousness at several points, so I’m sure it’ll be wondrous […]
Hello, readers mine! As I said I would, I’ve finally started revisions on The Necromancer and the Reaping Spear. To kick things off, I moved the original first chapter to be the second, and started writing a new first chapter… which has now split into the new first and second chapters. Pageblazing is glorious work! So, […]
