What I’m Currently Working On

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 1, 2017 in Intertwined Lives, Jake's Last Mission, No More Lies, Short stories, Writing process |

I used to do posts about my WIPs regularly, but they seemed to make my blog spontaneously generate problems, so I quit.  I don’t know if this will be a regular feature or not.  But I feel like doing it today, so I am. Titles of projects are what the files are named.  I am […]

Excerpt from Jake’s Last Mission

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 13, 2017 in Jake's Last Mission |

(This is not my best cover, but it was the best I could do on the budget I had at the time.  I spent a ridiculous amount of time finding the right font to make it look as good as possible, anyway.  And the print book does look pretty good, I have to admit.) This one […]

Great First Lines

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 27, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Jake's Last Mission, No More Lies, Once A Hero Always A Hero, Rants |

This is another thing from that list of blogposts that wasn’t totally stupid. “Make a list of great first lines from books,” it said.  So, here is a list of five first lines that I really like, in no special order:  All children, except one, grow up.  — Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie   It is given […]

This is another post that supposed to help me gain followers or something

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 23, 2017 in Jake's Last Mission, Rants, Uncategorized, Writing process |

The suggestion for what to blog about is “Write an article highlighting one of your Pinterest boards and explain how and why you use it”.  I do, in fact, have a Pinterest account.  I even have boards for a couple of my books. So, here, have a look at my board for the cleverly titled Jake’s […]

Why Does It Take Me So Long To Realize Things?!

Posted by Shannon Haddock on November 18, 2016 in Jake's Last Mission, Short stories, Writing process |

WARNING:  AUTHOR IS OVER-CAFFEINATED AND THEREFORE EVEN MORE RAMBLY THAN USUAL.  THE AUTHOR ASKS YOUR FORGIVENESS FOR ANY LONG-WINDED TANGENTS SHE MAY GO OFF ON. Today I was participating in a thread on the NaNoWriMo forums and had a sudden realization.  (Yes, I’m participating this year.  Yes, I know I wrote a whole blogpost last […]

Short Story: Desperate Measures

Posted by Shannon Haddock on September 29, 2016 in Jake's Last Mission, Short stories |

I wrote this over a year ago and very shortly after that ran out of decently paying markets that might accept it, so I’m not sure why I haven’t posted it yet. Anyway, the idea for this one come from me getting ticked at a character being stupid in something I was reading and amusing […]

The Creative Process

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 12, 2016 in Jake's Last Mission, Writing process |

Clean cut looking ship’s captain, looking at Jake critically:  How old are you, son?  Standard years, not local. Jake, fourteen Earth years old, slightly shaggy shoulder length red hair:  Seven, give or take a bit. First dude, looking a bit disappointed and shaking his head:  I’m sorry, but I can’t take you on.  You’re . […]

An Experiment’s Results and an Announcement

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 6, 2016 in Crown of Eldrete, Jake's Last Mission, Once A Hero Always A Hero |

Several months ago, I made all my works free everywhere I could as a special offer.  I left them free in a couple, without advertising this, since then. I have sold exactly zero copies of anything for money since then. I have gotten several downloads of each title in the places where they were free. […]

Long term writing updates

I was looking through some old blogposts, on a different site so don’t go looking for them here, that were writing related updates.  I thought it could be amusing/interesting to revisit these old updates and see what became of these stories.  And then I decided to do the same to one from here from last […]

Annoying Dilemma

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 15, 2015 in Jake's Last Mission |

I’ve got a problem with Jake’s Last Mission, and I don’t know what to do about it. You see, between writing it and giving it it’s final editing pass for publication, I discovered I write much better in first person.  I toyed with the idea of converting it to first person, but that would’ve meant delaying […]
