Foxes After King's Men

+ What's on: Fix Me, by 10 Years

So this got a lot longer than it was supposed to. I think this pretty much answers all the questions I've gotten so far? I might've missed something. If so let me know! Also, if you'd rather leave post-King's Men stuff to your imagination, I don't recommend clicking through the link.

there's a hole in my soul I can't fill it

+ What's On: Flaws, by Bastille

Happy New Year!

Wow, 2015 -- finally. I waited all year for 2014 to be over, and now that it is I'm at a loss! Did you know? 2015 is the first year since 1998 I will not have any Fox stories to work on. What.

So what's next? Good question! I have no idea. The only certainty I have is that it won't be sports fiction--AftG was always the only sports project in my arsenal. For that matter, it was the only contemporary piece. Every other project sitting shelved on my computer is fantasy, urban fantasy, or science fiction. Switching gears is bound to be a nightmare, made more complicated by how long I've had the Foxes in mental circulation. Every other story's been touched by the AftG project, so now I have to unravel the plot devices and personalities that got tangled up in them. And, as usual, the project I want to write and the project I'm presently capable of writing are two entirely different stories.

I'm not really sure what to do with this blog in the meantime, though, but I guess we're all used to long silences by now. But while I sort everything out, I owe some people some responses. I'm not trying to ignore you, I promise! I just needed to take a couple steps back for a while. Hopefully I'll have answered all emails & questions by the end of the weekend.

there was a time when a moment like this wouldn't ever cross my mind

+ What's on: The Driver, by Bastille

There will be more later, but right now----

Right now I just want you to know that you all are the most amazing, patient, forgiving, and tolerant people in the world. There is nothing I can say or do to convey how much it means to me that you shared this journey with me, that you dared take a chance on a story so self-indulgent and strange and unrealistic. All I have is "thank you". That will never be enough, but---

Thank you.

The King's Men




Neil Josten is out of time. He knew when he came to PSU he wouldn't survive the year, but with his death right around the corner he's got more reasons than ever to live.

Befriending the Foxes was inadvisable. Kissing one is unthinkable. Neil should know better than to get involved with anyone this close to the end, but Andrew's never been the easiest person to walk away from. If they both say it doesn't mean anything, maybe Neil won't regret losing it, but the one person Neil can't lie to is himself.

He's got promises to keep and a team to get to championships if he can just outrun Riko a little longer, but Riko's not the only monster in Neil's life. The truth might get them all killed—or be Neil's one shot at getting out of this alive.



The King's Men is currently available at Smashwords and Amazon.

More later, I'm off to panic quietly somewhere. ♥

+ What's on: Believe, by The Bravery

A small part of this was posted before, but that was way back in April 2013, so maybe you'll forgive me for including it? It would've made no sense to jump past that scene. Takes place ~4 years before the start of Foxhole Court.
