The purpose of character deaths

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 24, 2015 in Rants |

I was just, against my better judgement, perusing the forum of a webcomic I’ve been reading for years that’s presently got a really dramatic thing going on.  I stumbled on a phrase that pisses me off beyond all reason:  “if he’s willing to kill a character.” Why does this piss me off so much?  It’s, […]


Kavaliro Cousins Book Two Delayed Indefinitely

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 19, 2015 in Kavaliro Cousins, Writing process |

When I finished Crown of Eldrete, I immediately started the sequel, like the next day “immediately”. Twelve thousand words into it, I realized I’d started in the wrong spot and needed to cut the first ten thousand words. That was painful. Since then, nearly two years ago, I haven’t been able to get any idea […]


Progress report

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 16, 2015 in Intertwined Lives, No More Lies, Writing process |

Instead of listing all my works-in-progress and getting depressed by how many I haven’t worked on in ages, this year I will instead be updating how far I’ve come on the to do list I posted at the beginning of the year.  With new items being added, because I’m great at making plans, but suck at […]


Five star reviews — Abigail Abernathy: All-Night Analytical Engine Analyst by T. R. Goodman

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 11, 2015 in Reviews |

The description, via Goodreads: All Abigail Abernathy wants is a respectable job where she can put her knowledge of analytical engines to use. The Royel Trading Company of Bristol provides her with just such an opportunity, but not everyone is pleased to have her aboard. Between incompetent management, clients helpless beyond her imagination, and a […]


Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 8, 2015 in Uncategorized |

I had another post I was working on for tonight, but I saw this on twitter and it seemed far more important than my blatherings about the different definitions of space opera. Now, I admit, my French isn’t up to translating the cartoons, nor do I know enough about French or Muslim culture to know just […]


Drabbles: Lance and Jasmine

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 2, 2015 in Short stories |

A drabble is a story of exactly one hundred words. I think these stand alone fine, but if I’m wrong, just ask me about what’s confused you. I make no promise these are great.  They were written years ago as an experiment, and because of the exactly one hundred words stipulation they’re a bitch to […]


The plan for this year

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 1, 2015 in No More Lies, Once A Hero Always A Hero, Short stories, Writing process |

So, 2014 is over.  I edited and published a novelette with an attached short story.  I very heavily revised, changing such intrinsic things as POV, and republished a short story.  I finished and started editing a novel.  I pieced together three semi-related vignettes into a short story and started editing it.  I edited a novel […]
