I’ve discontinued this blog. I’ve transfered the whole thing to my new blog at:

I’m recording a serial audio podcast of By Darkness Hid that anyone can listen to free online or subscribe to via email, podcasts, or iTunes. I recorded Chapter 1 and posted it today as a test so that I can figure out how to set up the subscriber links. Once I’ve got those links working I’ll post one chapter a week until I finish reading the whole novel. At that time I’ll start posting audio chapters of To Darkness Fled–also for free.

I think this will be a fun new way to reach new readers (listeners) and to post content on my blog.

I plan to post a new chapter each week on Saturday mornings. I’m officially kicking off this podcasting adventure in June. That means that By Darkness Hid– Episode 2 will be posted on June 4th and that By Darkness Hid– Episode 3 will be posted June 11th, and so on.

So, stay tuned for By Darkness Hid– Episode 2, coming soon! In the meantime, don’t miss By Darkness Hid– Episode 1. You can download the MP3 file by right-clicking on the link below and selecting “Save Target As” then selecting the place on your computer where you want to save the file. Or you can simply click on the link to listen. Enjoy!

Storyworld Detail: Ivory Creepers

April 15, 2011

When Vrell and her companions travel through the Nahar Tunnels to avoid the Eben giants, Peripaso supplies them with creepers to wear on their feet to help them climb in the icy tunnels. Creepers were used by Inupiat people. Carved from ivory and attached to leather thongs, they were tied to the bottom of the foot to give traction when walking on ice or frozen snow.
