First I wanted to update you on something else. Now I know I've postponed Hedgewater several times. To those of you who follow the story: I'm sorry you've waited so long. From the very beginning I knew exactly what was going to happen, and had a pretty firm outline. But now I've hit a snag and I'm blocked on how I'm going to fix it. I don't want to push out a crappy story because I rushed it. I love the complexity of Hedgewater and I intend to keep it that way. Therefore I have made the decision to push Hedgewater back until I'm ready to write it again. I've never done that with an ongoing story before, and again I'm sorry to those of you who were waiting for Season 2. It will be back. I do promise you that. I just need time to write it, and some creative mojo to stir my imagination. Thank you for being patient. I really do appreciate it.
Onto the reason you're here. I have to say that this next story from the Second City Tales collection is going to be one of my favorites. I loved Trey and Greg, but for some reason, these next two MCs are completely different than what I'm used to. I'm excited. I have a lot of ideas and a pretty good grasp on the plot this time around. Writing about a deaf assassin for the queen has been a challenge, but in the best kind of way. Adrian is just an awesome character to me. So I'm glad I get to share him with you.
Just a warning: I've researched using sign language as dialogue and there are a few ways to do it. I've decided, because I already use italics for my character's thoughts, I am going to use italics and quotations for signing. I didn't want anyone confused. But I read through the signing parts quite a few times and I believe it's all pretty easy to understand, even without this warning. Like I said, just wanted you to know. :)
Okay, I'm gonna shut up now and let you read. No playlist this installment. Just your imagination. Let me know what you think! I look forward to hearing from you guys. :D
