The newest issue of the quarterly Sparks zine is underway. The new issue will feature the short novella, The Fable of Wren.
Here is the sketch for the cover. I needed a break from writing, so I leaned on my drawing skills. I’m halfway through writing, with the whole story plotted out already. I’m averaging about a scene a day for now. The story will most likely be finished mid-February, giving me time to send it out to be polished.
This particular story is longer than my usual works by nearly double, but the story has been a godsend for me as far as working through some of my own trauma. The quirky cast of characters is a strange juxtaposition to the heavy issues handled in the story, but it works.
And oh yeah, did I mention it’s a mystery, featuring two amateur sleuths pursuing a murderer?
This will be one hell of a ride.
