indexing

What's red and white and carries a badge?

Fairy tales are not friendly things. They're dangerous wastelands filled with people who would slit your throat for a magic bean...and the idea that they stopped happening just because we grew up and moved out of the deep dark forest is ludicrous. The narrative has been here all along, watching us, waiting for the moments when we give it opportunity to strike.

There's no such thing as "happy ever after." There's only "once upon a time."

I am delighted to announce that, beginning May 21st, my first serial novel will be publishing on the Kindle via 47North. With a new chapter every two weeks, Indexing will follow the brave women and men of the ATI Management Bureau as they try to protect the everyday world from the predatory stories that are lurking just beyond the edge of sight.

You can see the gritty details here.

With hardships and horrors aplenty, Indexing is a fusion of fairy tale and modern police drama, sort of a "Once Upon a Time meets Criminal Minds" elevator pitch of a story. It's been a lot of fun to write, and the price point is excellent for a new story every two weeks. The print edition will be out in December for those of us who don't do Kindle.

I'm very excited to have the opportunity to tell this story. I hope you'll like it as much as I do.
