Oh, Jeez!



Yeah, look at that title, and you just have to know I'm in a pickle. A kosher dill pickle. Not a spear, not a chip, not even relish. A whole dill pickle. No butter or sea salt to be found. And most certainly not sugar free. 

I...received a comment on a chapter of Love in the Shadows, which is now almost complete! All chapters are posted, but some minor editing needs to be accomplished. But...this comment. Ooooh, it was a juicy one. A big, juicy pickle. And because of reading this comment before my shift, I had puh-lenty of time to let it marinate in my little ADHD noggin. 

I'm working on another book. Let me rephrase that:  I'm now working on two books. Rising in the Shadows, and now, a new story. Oh, no. Aaron...you're digging a hole, and you have no way of getting out of it. And to that I say...I'm a Boy Scout! I'll just keep digging until I find some tree roots, excavate them, and turn them into a ladder! It would be much easier for me to just dig upward and make a ramp of dirt...but I like taking the long way! It's more fun, and quite frankly, I could use some more fun in my life.

This new story idea is a delight. But, I'm digging myself into another hole. This new story...is another shifter/were-creature story! Am I becoming a were-creature author? Is that bad? Shouldn't I switch things up a bit?

How 'bout you let me roll around in my dirt pile? I like were-creature stories! They're great! It's a nice fantasizing adventure genre that takes away the troubles of the world we live in. Forget Rona and her new strains. Capitol schmapitol. Fortnite? Ha! More like Poopnite! Take that you screaming twelve-year olds!

But I will be serious here for just a moment. Hang on, gotta find my 'serious bow-tie.' Now where is it...Ah! Found it! Okay...

I am not getting myself backlogged. I'm finding out that I have a lot more free time than I initially thought. And I was posting chapters left and right on both Love in the Shadows and Dear, Grocery Shoppers. I kept saying, "Oh, I'll have one chapter of each, posted a week." And then two days later, I done posted yet another chapter! I was going fast. But I am starting to learn the art of marination. Just let things sit for a bit. Soak up some of them juices before you slap it on the grill. Because before you know it, all the steak is gone, and you're stuck with microwaving leftover pizza. I mean, it's still good, but you missed out on steak! 

Now, I think I can read some minds here:  "Aaron, we love you...but TELL US ABOUT THE NEW STORY!!!" Adding another shifter story to my repertoire, the story is called Cernunnos. And it will be following a new hero...of sorts. He is a shifter, but not like any shifter that has had tales told of. Stories across GA, and other websites tend to focus on big name were-creatures:  wolves, bears, lions, and other ferocious animals. But our new hero, Cyn...is a deer. That's right! A deer. Think about that for a sec, would ya?

Deer are widely hunted, whether it be in the stories we read, or even in our human world. Imagine how these deer shifters, or cernunnos, live their daily lives. Even they are not shielded well against hunters, whether they be standing on two legs, or four. 

I'm going to leave it there, as if I keep typing, I'll keep blabbing. And that leads to spoilers being turned into the story itself. Let me know what y'all think about this upcoming story! I'm super excited to be working on both of these stories, and I just know they will make you all eager for more.

I love it so much! I don't think I have ever read a story about a deer that was a were creature. If I have, I don't remember. I think it is a brilliant idea!

Well, ya better get ready! I just finished the first chapter! Boom! Albeit, I think these will be much smaller chapters, but I think this will help me knock out RitS better. And I'm off to post it!

Well you know I am all in....Hell you could write about toilet paper and I would read it!!!  Seriously, I have a lot of time on my retired hands and I love reading your stories... I don't know what it is but I can just get into your stories, journal entries, blog...  It's such a captivating read for me. It is so easy for me to lose myself in your works.  Hours will have past and I'll think to myself "where the hell did the time go?".   Love the deer shifter!!  Another new concept from an awe inspiring creative mind!!!!
