Odin Plays With Fire. Literally.

It had been my wildest dream to play with Precious Metal Clay (aka PMC), and had refrained because the material is so damned expensive and I had always thought it took wayyyyy too many supplies to make it plausible.

HOWEVER, I came to the realization that I own a Brulee torch, the fire demon collecting dust on the top of my fridge. And Copper Clay as opposed to Silver is considerably cheaper (In addition, you can make the shit yourself.)

SO THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!

FREEDOM!!!!

FACK what a year this has been. But I am happy to announce that the chaos that has been gnawing at my backside since last Fall has finally subsided, and I am able to go back to our normal scheduled programming.

Which means that the sequel to Sleepless Flame is back in progress! I will be using this blog as an accountability tracker and hopefully take you all along for the ride as I post word counts, snippets, and teasers for the next chapter, titled Mourning Ember.

Before all this nonsense afflicted me, I was intending on releasing in July to catch the Summer Reads wave, but I am pretty pessimistic about that outcome. I do not want a repeat of the crap I had to deal with from the first book, so I am shooting for October for a more relaxed experience. But who the hell knows?

This blog won’t be all focused on the book. I have exciting things incoming this year, from new projects to shows and even more writing adventures that have nothing to do with the series. Some short fiction as well!

So sit back, enjoy the ride, and grab a snack or two as we head forth into whatever bullshit my brains decide to fling at the internet.

Until Next Time!

Odin Gets Crafty

My SO had surprised me with a selection of clearance fabrics from the spooky section of a famous discount department store, and because I will take any excuse to avoid actual work, I decided to get DIY all over my pin board.

This is my current Pin Board. While I have an awesome collection, it is rather drab.

Post-Con Collapse

Fwuhhhhhhhh. What a weekend. I have just finished up an event at a geek con featured inside a local library, and it was a magical adventure! 

Here is a pic of my table setup, which holds the remainder of my jewelry and my books! It was quite a productive adventure, I met lots of lovely people and the organizers were so fantastic!

Odin and the Tweeters

Aside from rambling off on my space here on the blog, I do a lot of word vomiting on Twitter. I have been following a lot of writer hashtags, and I thought I would share a collection of them here since they delve into some background and scenery topics of the Sleepless Flame world.

If you aren’t already following me there, I’d highly recommend it for extra tidbits to read while you are waiting for my slow ass to crank the sequel out of my brains.

About Odin and Other Identities

I live to consume media in all of its forms in my relentless quest for rich story content. I have experience delving in content creation myself, ranging from books, comics, and even video games. From time to time, I am also found mastering dungeons and leading innocent party members to their demise on pen and paper platforms.

My professional background is in Game Development, and with my B.A. I focus primarily on mechanics and design, as well as narrative. I have been involved in several casual projects, as well as led teams in larger scale startup companies.

Being a chronically bored individual, I also partake in other crafty deeds around the internet.

I am also a freelance Editor, so for those of you who are interested in my services, you can find them on my website at Odin’s Edits.

When I am not creating fiction, I am also drafting technical instruction manuals for my handmade jewelry designs.

Here is one of my latest pieces, if you were curious:

 

If you would like an example of my jewelry instructions, take a look at my freebie PDFs on my Jewelry Site.

You can also find me yelling and cussing at beads amid other things on my YouTube channel, where I make a total fool of myself and scatter the web with my colorful metaphors.
