A few years ago I wrote a bit of silly but interesting fan-fiction about the grandson of a famous pulp hero of the 1930's and 40's for the Sinatra story series here called "If They Made Me a King" (http://storiesonline.net/s/64820/if-they-made-me-a-king). Once the story was done and pretty much out of mind, I kept having thoughts about about the island and its people... and their existing relationship to several of my other series, such as Lovett/Wyldewood.
I guess it could be a pretty firm rule - EVERYTHING in a Stultus story is all interrelated... even if it seems otherwise. Often it's subtle, but it won't be quite-so here.
Anyway, Chapter One of the new series has been submitted for posting and should be up today. I'm doing the final rewrites of the edits for Chapter Two today as well, ready for posting next Friday. Chapters Three and Four are done (first draft) and also off to editing today. Working on Chapter Five right now also. Maybe one more chapter after that.
Nice progress - something to show for my 'break time'! There will be eventually 2-3 more DERP stories, but not soon. Too many other things to do next.
Back to Arc Deco right after this, to finish off the Zak in DC part of the adventure. Also time to do new chapters for all of the regular serials, like Baleful Sky, etc.
