So the List ends tomorrow. I had hoped to have 2 chapters up by then, but I hadn’t counted on:
Y’know...best laid plans and all that, but it’s not all bad news!
Things will likely quiet down for a bit after New Years, though I’ll be sure to do an update once the results of the List are known, and I’ll do my best to update the page regularly.
Keep an eye on that horizon.
and onwards to 2017...
I have good news. A couple of bits in fact.
1. LandFall will be back in the List for 2016. I know it still says ’Launchpad’ up there, but that should get fixed in the next few days. Now I think we all know I’m not going to place, at 0 readers, it’d be a bit hard. But there’s still the judges picks (of which there now appear to be 4), so it’s not all lost just yet (It’s just a really, really slim possibility). But also know, that the List is not the end of LandFall, there’s a reason this is an 18 month campaign, I’m in it for the long haul. The List is just an added bonus.
2. If you check the project page for LandFall you’ll find some actual, honest-to-goodness content. It’s just the first half (or so) of the first chapter at the moment, but more will be coming in the run up to the end of the List. Ideally I’ll have 2 full chapters up by then, which will give the bulk of the setup for LandFall.

So now that the List troubles have been sorted out, and there’s some content up, I finally feel comfortable officially asking you all to take a look at the project, to consider pre-ordering a copy and to share it around to anyone you think might be interested in it.
(Also, I’m not a monster, I do realise it’s only a few days till Christmas. So there’s no pressure to order right now, I’ll be here for a good long while.)
A quick note: I still don’t know what’s going on with LandFall and it’s participation in the list. I’m now pretty confident I know what’s happened, but it’s now been 11 days since I last heard from Inkshares and they have not yet offered any ’official’ details on what’s happened.
I’ll try reaching out again this week with my thoughts and see where that goes.
This is just a quick heads up about the status of LandFall.
During the week LandFall was moved out of ’The List’ and placed over in the LaunchPad contest. This is an error. I’m hoping it’ll be resolved soon.
I’ve done some looking and I think I have a pretty good idea as to what’s happened, but until I know for sure, I can’t say what the outcome of that resolution will be. For now though, I’ve put a hold on working on the story until I know what’s happening.
I wanted to be transparent about the situation and will continue to be so going forward. Stay tuned, when I know, you’ll know.
So I have some news.
