So I’ve launched a new portion of http://www.WelcometoSanKeros.com today! It’s called Upshots, and it will feature shorter stories–more like snapshots–that will show glimpses into the past, present, and future of San Keros and its denizens. I’ll be posting a new Upshot for the next four more weeks or so, and then we’ll get to the next longform Miracle Season story.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to Max Colfort. He’s new to San Keros, and he’s about to discover one of its mysteries…
Greetings, fellow wanderers of our fair city of San Keros,
There was an unexpected death in my family within the last few weeks, and the update schedule has gotten a tad delayed. But rest assured–the story of Hrothgar Jones and Beth Kendall is far, far from over. Regular weekly updates will recommence this week, with the series now reaching conclusion the first week of January. My apologizes for extending the story into the New Year, but grief has a funny way of creeping into the best of your intentions and rendering them moot.
Following the conclusion of Open Your Eyes, WelcometoSanKeros.com will take a brief break of just two simple weeks, and then we will start unveiling content of the next story cycle! Tales from the Miracle Season is just beginning, and the players are still gathering on the side of the stage. They’re as anxious to meet you as you are to meet them. And the City has its own ambitions…
I’m proud to announce that my first web-based large scale fiction project has gone live! WelcomeToSanKeros.com is the online hub for Tales from the Miracle Season, an interlocking web of short stories, ficlets, novellas, and more. The first story, Open Your Eyes, is a serial that will be updated weekly alongside biographical and geographical entries of the city of San Keros and its environs. As you read, the city will open up before you, the website a living document that expands and fills in gaps between tales. Open Your Eyes will be a story of 12 parts, with the next story in the cycle announced and commencing upon its completion. I hope you’ll give this story a chance. It’s my most personal story to date, and it sets the stage for everything that will follow.
You’ll continue to find all other written work–past and future–not affiliated with Tales from the Miracle Season here at latenightstirfry.com . The Season of the Story is now.
Beneath the bent boughs of the trees in Finn’s Wood, something is stirring.
Something old, Something new.
And Something Blue.
So welcome again to another status update. Things are more or less on track to launch the new content upgrades and design by September 1st. This means that The Miracle Season will finally begin in earnest over on Welcome to San Keros, as well as a few other fun updates here and on AO3. I’ll have more info as to which pieces get released and when as we get a tad closer.
I’ve had a bit of a rough spring/summer, emotionally, but I’m feeling ready to really commit to this project in a way I haven’t previously. My goal is for at least one update a week. That update will be a piece of fiction. Other updates will be more frequent. As we meet new people and places in San Keros we’ll add them to the growing City Directory for easy reference. By the time the first sequence of Miracle Season is concluded late this fall, you’ll be able to buy it as a complete story! More on that as it develops.
Meanwhile, enjoy the last few days of Summer before the magic of fall begins, and I’ll see you in 14 days.
