May Publications

Hi everyone!

This month I will be releasing two sections of the new "Zero Does Math" series on the nonfiction side of things (focusing on Precalculus for the first 6 or 7 of these). I'm pretty much done with both sections and the only delays are on licensing of a graphing utility which I am hopeful to finish up soon (if things stall on that front, I'll have to release without graphs, although I'm interested if people would rather have hand-drawn graphs in a professional book than no graphs at all).

On the fiction side of things, I'm torn between a couple of different stories I've been developing. So if you have an opinion, now is the time to make your voice heard!

Here's a rundown of the stories I'm considering for this month:

Cross and the Cap
A series of grisly murders has the Shiram Police Dept perplexed. The fact that the victims are all fey is enough for Special Relations to call in Vera Cross, magickian-for-hire. Fey are some of the most powerful creatures able to cross the veil and no one—human, magicker, or "other"—wants to investigate this one. It's up to Cross and her brand of .50 caliber magick to get to the bottom of it.
Urban Fantasy — WotA Modern Setting

Champion of the Gods - Part I of III
Massive beasts of fangs and claws, the Folk are the foot soldiers for their gods, the Aviadins. Every generation the Folk rise out of the Marsh of Anosh to attack their enemies: every other civilization. What is courage? What is loyalty? Part I shows the war against the ranines and the war against the laorcs through the eyes of Eager-Fangs the Brown.
Military Fantasy — WotA Main Series Setting — Originally published in 2010; rewritten

Turn off the Lights
A generator can make a difference between being safe at home and being in danger, but not for the reason you're thinking. There's a race of demons that feeds off electricity and has been hiding amongst us since the 1940s. When everyone's lights are out but yours, guess where they are coming.
Horror — OFaD (Of Faeries and Demons) Modern Setting

All three of these probably have between 20 and 60 hours of work in finishing them up and will be between 4000 and 16000 words (depending on the story).
