Hello, dear readers.
I’ve got some great news. For some time now, I’ve been collaborating with my best friend on a series of erotic epic fantasy novellas that we’re self-publishing through Amazon. The series is titled “The Filliquian Chronicle,” and the first volume is already live (you can buy it here). We’re very excited to be starting this new part of our writing life, and we sincerely hope that you’ll join us, buy our books, and rate us on Goodreads and on Amazon.
So, what does this mean for this blog? Well, here are a few of the things that’ll be changing.
From now on, if you want to read anything related to fantasy that I’m writing, you’ll need to head on over to DarcyandWinters.com, our joint author site. In addition to stuff about writing, updates about our work, and samples, you’ll also find our ongoing reviews of works of fantasy (both written and visual) that tickle our fancy. Some of these will be new works, some will be old, and some will be in-between. Fantasy features that I wrote somewhat regularly here (e.g., my series on Tolkien, my blog posts on the works of Tad Williams, etc.) will stay here, but any future entries will appear on the new site. It’s still very much a work-in-progress, so please be patient with us!
Worry not. I’ll still be writing a lot for this blog, from now on I’m mostly going to focus on history, politics, historical fiction, and film and TV. I’m also going to make a concerted effort to post more frequently here. This will probably mostly take the form of reviews and personal essays. Ideally, I’d still like to post here three times a week, but that might not be feasible until I’ve built up a bit more of a library of content to share. Again, your patience will be much appreciated.
Lastly, appearances. This blog’s appearance is a bit out-of-date, so over the next couple of weeks I’m going to experiment with some new looks. I hope you like the changes!
I look forward to continuing to build this blog. I really do enjoy maintaining it, and it remains a fundamental part of my mission as a public intellectual. As always, I’m tremendously grateful to those of you who have commented on and shared my work over the last several years. Here’s to several more to come!
