It must’ve seemed like things have been pretty quiet here at COP the last few months. Quite the opposite!
Since January, we’ve been working with our friends at SciFi Saturday Night, polishing Farnham’s contribution to their recently funded anthology, My Peculiar Family. Work also continues at flank speed on the conclusion to the Angry Ghosts Series, Plasma Rain. A completed first draft by end of year may be optimistic, but that’s our target.
We can hear you thinking, “Yeah, right. I bet Farnham’s gonna George RR Martin this thing forever and never finish it.”
Such thoughts occurred to us, as well, so we’ll say this: Slavery may have been abolished except for the convicted felon, and though Farnham has no criminal record, as such, he’s been convicted in our Star Chamber of keeping readers waiting too long. Hence, he’ll be chained to his MacBook for the remainder of this year and next.
Already, Plasma Rain is shaping up to be the best of the series. But please don’t tell Farnham we’re pleased with his work so far. He’s nicely bottled in a modern day Chateau D’if, and we hired a thug to thrash him awake whenever he nods off. In fact, it’s time we hid the bourbon and introduced him to the special joy of Fire Ants every time a deadline skates by unmet.
We do it all for you, dear readers! Artists should suffer for their craft. It certainly isn’t because we enjoy it. Not really.
To all, a wonderful Summer!
