Jason Chestnut's latest update for To Live and Die in Avalon

Sep 5, 2017

Hello faithful followers and readers!

I know I haven’t updated you all in quite a while and there are various reason for that, including finishing my first degree, starting a new job and generally being busy. But, I have not stopped writing!

To Live and Die in Avalon has a finished manuscript that has me pretty proud. I have occasionally gone back to tweak it whenever I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat saying "wait...that is a HUGE plot hole! Why did I not see that?!" But, for the most part, it is as done as I can get before being put into the hands of a skilled professional editor. I have also began putting aside notes for the SEQUEL, but it is far too early to even talk about that in great detail. If (and when) Avalon gets a publishing deal, the edits I may have to make with an editor may impact what happens in the sequel. I have written one little scene that I just had to get off my chest and I hope it makes it into the as yet not-fully-formed follow up. I am still considering another campaign, but they require a lot of time and energy that I can’t quite commit to right now. I’m in a very transitional and busy period of life right now and once I get into a steady groove I can perhaps dedicate the proper time needed for a campaign and the other creative endeavors (including my music) that I’ve been wanting to indulge. 

The rest of my writing energy has been put toward the epic fantasy novel I have been wanting to make some headway on. The story has changed so significantly, that I will have to update the details on the draft page at some point. You can check out the very early, rough version of an opening chapter at https://www.inkshares.com/books/aurasong-blue-sword

Finally, a shout out to a couple  of my colleagues and friends here at Inkshares that need the love:

Andre Brun’s Arcadia is currently in first place in the Horror Contest! Support him here:


Ferd Crotte’s Mission 51 finished in one of the top spots of the last Nerdist Sci-Fi contest!


Also, I can’t possibly name every single author I think you should support here, so just go through my follows and followers and check out their work. Every. Single. One of them. Inkshares is bursting at the seams with talent and they are only going to make it with your support. 

Thanks again and if you live in Florida, gather up your books to read and stay safe!
