The entire story of "Corporation vs Colony" is finished and posted. It has been a while since I last posted here, and it's going to be another while before I post again. My attention is torn between family life and trying to get the first book of stories published and trying to still write a little every day.
If you haven't yet, please Like the Facebook page for future updates. I also have a tumblr page, where I often post my thoughts on Sherlockiana as well as science fiction and fantasy.
There's a new story just beginning - head over to Book 3 for the start of "Corporation vs Colony" (title to be improved upon later).
As always, feel free to give your thoughts on the stories by commenting here or on Facebook or you can send me a tweet or email
My apologies for my lack of update for a while - I'm working on a new story and want to work the kinks out before I start posting it... or at least figure out how it's going to end.
In more mundane website-y news - the old twitter account @diaryofdrwatts is now discontinued. Anyone who wants to receive news of updates to the stories should follow my personal twitter @mrskatem. Also, I've entered the strange world of tumblr and am slowly figuring things out. I can't decide yet if I'm going to start posting stories on it. For now, it is a strange collection of my random musings about science fiction, fantasy and Sherlockiana. If you would like to check it out, visit kaelma.tumblr.com
The last section of "Framed" has been posted. Check out page 8 to see how easy it is to sneak a snake into a Corporate Sector house after all...
As always, your comments are welcome and encouraged.
Page 7 of "Framed" has been posted. Read it and find out how the news channels are spinning the story of Sherlock as a suspect for murder. As always, please feel free to comment with any questions or criticisms or even a simple 'that was cool.'
And if you haven't seen it yet, you should really scroll down and check out the latest character art. I can't stop telling people how much I love it.
As regular readers and fans of the Facebook page know, the talented Alexandra Kanonik has supplied a few pictures in the past of characters and scenes from these stories. This is her latest:
Have you guessed who it is? From the artist:
I wanted her design to be streamlined. She has many hidden compartments, all the slits and plating houses one killing device or another, her feet have jets for long-jumps, and the heel and pad of the foot articulates to fold out into a sort of bird claw, for climbing....then I thought about the biological physiology. It's not seen in this pic but I was thinking all she really has left is the skin on her face (underneath is a hard metal skeleton), and the brain and spinal cord for interfacing with the nanotech, and her life support for the brain is housed in her chest, pumping oxygenated fluids as well as cooling fluids in and out to keep the brain and facial tissue alive, and on her neck she has "slits" that inhale and exhale air in the form of steam as a way to release excess heat generated by the implanted nanoprocessors in her brain...yeah...the rest of her body is crammed with weaponry.
You cannot begin to imagine how happy it makes me that someone in the world is thinking so imaginatively about one of my characters.
What do you think? Is this how you pictured Jessie?
To make up for the late posting, you're getting a double post today! I finally come out and say something that's been implied about Dr. Watts. I doubt it will be a shock to anyone, but I'm still particularly interested to hear what people think about the story, so please don't hesitate to comment here, or on Facebook or through email to email@example.com - wherever you're most comfortable. You can even send me a tweet @diaryofdrwatts if you prefer.
Page 4 of the story "Framed" has been posted; Sherlock and Watts are in a potentially sticky situation, but at least they've got some support... sort of...
As always, let me know what you think of the stories by either posting here or on the Facebook page, or you can always email me with your comments, criticisms and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Page 2 has been posted. My primary concern with this story right now is how heavily it's going to reference "The Speckled Band" by A.C. Doyle. Ideally, my dear readers will be able to follow everything without needing to read Sir Doyle's story (though I highly recommend that you do - questionable scientific accuracy notwithstanding, it is a very well written mystery and one of the author's favorites).
If at any point in time there is a moment where you are confused or simply feel as though you are missing something, do not hesitate to comment so that I can fix whatever it is that is wrong.
Unless of course you simply can't figure out how the case will end. Then you'll just have to wait and find out.
