It’s my birthday, and in a very Hobbity fashion, I’m giving a gift…
When I set the goal for 2020 of posting one of my past completed works to my site every month, I chose Demons to post for my birthday month. Stick Around and Demons are some of my favorites of my own works, and I’m pleased to be able to post this today. I’m not planning additional stories in this universe but, if I get inspired, I wouldn’t be sad to spend more time here.
What I didn’t know when I was doing my post planning was that Demons would be the story that pushed me over one million words of completed works posted to this site. I thought it would be Unobstructed Views, but when I posted Unobstructed Views at the end of December, it put me at 994,310 (yes, I huffed). Demons is nearly 73,000, so I’m well into the 1M territory! (My word counts are only what’s complete on this site and do not include things posted exclusively to the Wild Hare Project or on the Evil Author Day community on Dreamwidth.)
Demons is the 3rd longest story on the site at this time and is the 60th completed work.
Something I’d meant to share in my 2019 wrap up, but totally spaced on, is some amazing art done by Christy Vandiver based on the prologue from Emergence. She’s got mad skills, folks, and I was completely blown away. Please drop by Art Station and check it out!
It will be posted within an hour of this post going out, so I hope you enjoy Demons. Happy Birthday, everyone! 😉
** Minor housekeeping note at the bottom of the post.
Emergence art by Christy Vandiver. Do not distribute.
P.S. One minor housekeeping note: I’ve had cause to regret sharing my goals for 2020 as I’ve received dozens of questions about what I’ll be posting and when. I’d ask that if you have the urge to ask a question in that vein, please refrain. I’ve never been willing to commit to a specific publishing schedule for my fanfic, much less share that publicly, and I’ll set the goal aside before I let myself get stressed out over my hobby. Thank you.
