Change is coming to Hidden Things.
The blog will soon be going dark in the way of excerpts, only to emerge more brightly lit on the other side.
I'm sending off packets for prospective agents *at this very moment* and partially as a result and partially because most of the excerpts have been rendered of interest only for archeological purposes by the long months of heavy re-writing and revising, I'll be removing access to the excerpts.
In their place a m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶t̶t̶y̶ ̶s̶e̶r̶i̶e̶s̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶e̶n̶t̶r̶i̶e̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶l̶a̶r̶g̶e̶r̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶c̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶w̶r̶i̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶o̶o̶k̶ bunch of images & quotes from much more famous writers will take over the space. Fireside chats if you will, minus the fire. Just as importantly, I'll be putting up the first s̶i̶x̶ seven chapters in PDF - complete and unabridged. This will give a current snapshot of the book, allow for more intelligible viewing, and will be, I hope, ample compensation for the removal of the old outdated content.
Enjoy and best wishes,
