Weekly Update: The Indomitable & Literature Commentary

Hello all!

It has been a busy couple of weeks and there is a lot I want to discuss today, starting with The Indomitable. Simply put, not since Aerona Harkan has a character enthralled me more than Justine Deuvers. I originally intended for The Indomitable to be a four part series that would explain her origins, detail her meeting with Prophet Gabriel, and whence she lead Dalia’s forces against the Darkness. All of that content is still on the table, but it will be done much more expansively. I am still planning the back end of the narrative, but it would not surprise me if we reach part ten of The Indomitable. Thus Terror of the Black Storm and Birth of Madness series are being pushed to early 2018. They are stories that will still be included when I publish A Prelude to Darkness in March 2018, but I think there is a tremendous opportunity to delve deeply into an amazing character and journey in Justine Deuvers.

I also wanted to announce that on Thursdays I will be publishing a week commentary on some aspect of literature that interests me. This will be more mechanical, the nuts and bolts of writing imaginative fiction, but if something related interests me, I will pursue it. This Thursday I will be giving my take on word repetition and the flow of prose. I do hope you enjoy it.

Contact Means for Reviews, Interviews, and Licensing Inquiries

Hello readers!

Lately I have been receiving numerous requests for review copies and interviews through direct messages on Twitter and private messages on Facebook. While I am very happy to provide review copies and interview requests, I must ask that this is done in a professional manner. Please use the Contact page on my website for these requests. Do note that I need to be able to fully vet your blog, website, or publication. In addition, if you are simply a reader and wish to discuss anything from my work, literature, or whatever else crosses your mind, you can do so through that page as well.

Thank you for understanding.

Website & Social Media Changes

Hello all!

This weekend I will be pushing several changes to this website and my social media outlets. Namely, they will centre on myself, as an author, and not a specific work. This will allow me to push more content and updates as it reflects all the work I do. There will still be considerable content for Ancient Vestiges novels and short stories—that will never, ever change—but this will be much more fluid.

However, it is time to update bookmarks.

I will be getting my own domain for the website (no more wordpress.com, yay). I will update everyone when the new domain is active.

My Facebook fan page has already changed to: https://www.facebook.com/BrendenCGardner/

My Twitter page will remain the same: https://twitter.com/TheRealGards

This also means that all of the short story links will be broken as they will be re-uploaded to the new site. You will need to navigate to them when the new site is up.

Exciting times ahead!
