Working on a new short story

I started a new short story tonight, and it's got me excited, so I have to yack about it a little without giving anything away.

The title, so far, is "Where the Baptized Drown."

It takes place in Texas in 1881.

And, just so a certain editor knows, it's another John Dee story. Except he's not called John Dee in this yarn. Heck, he's not called John Dee a lot of the time, but that's the name I usually give him in my head.

Cool. The title of your blog post made me think 'John Dee.' The gun pic, the title of the tale (VERY cool BTW), and the locale decidely made me think NOT 'John Dee.' So to have it end up being about 'John Dee' is pretty awesome, Ty.

You're gonna end up with a whole collection of tales based upon you-know-who's initial premise! Not bad!

(I'm all caught up now!)

John has a lot of tales in him. One of the interesting things about him is sometimes he’s a villain, sometimes he’s a hero and sometimes he’s neither. With his … ehem … level of experience and his desperation, he has gone through many emotional (and possibly spiritual) changes, making him almost a different person at different times.

that is a really cool concept, Ty. You have many adventures ahead of the two of you.
