Mortal Gods: ‘Sodom by the Susquehanna’ and Other Fiction Update

Mortal Gods: “Sodom by the Susquehanna” remains on schedule to begin publishing in the first quarter of the year, and likely before the end of March. I am also moving closer to being ready to start publishing Mortal Gods: “HVT” and The Stought Brothers.

I mentioned last year here at Liberate Liberty that I was nearing completion on the outline of Mortal Gods: “Sodom by the Susquehanna.” I’ve done further work on that. I’ve refined it, developed the characters a bit more, and I think that it’s close to the point where I can begin publishing it as a serial story.

The publication will (most likely) occur simultaneously here at Liberate Liberty and Liberty Island. (And it will be published for free, although there is an option to donate to me at my Liberty Island site.) One of the last big things for me to figure out is what the serial publishing schedule will be. Ideally it will be once per week but that remains to be determined. I might try to publish a serial portion each week and alter that schedule if necessary. (In other words, if I find that the next portion is not ready on a given week, I’ll delay it.)

Mortal Gods: “HVT” is probably closer to being ready to publish than “Sodom by the Susquehanna” is. I will publish “HVT” here at Liberate Liberty and Liberty Island as well. The story is unique in that it is a national security story that tells an interesting tale but also offers a unique solution (within the reality of the Mortal Gods universe) to an actual national security challenge. I will discuss that more after I publish the story. But the short of it is, is that it will be a fun story.

The Stought Brothers will be published at BarbWire as a free serial story. I think I’m ready to go with that within the next week or two. I’ll write an introductory piece to it, post that first at BarbWire, and then start the serial publication (which will occur weekly) of that first entry in a potential children’s story.

The closer I get to being ready to start publishing these stories the more excited I get about them. And I’m obviously hoping you feel the same way and enjoy them when you read them.
