It's NaNoWriMo Time!  
What do you think? Should I write it?

(Anonymous) on October 28th, 2019 08:48 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah. Pretty please. You've been teasing us with this one for yonks.

But, what happens to Ice?

Re: Ice?????
What else? He'll probably be wanting a story of his own, any day now. But hopefully after November. It could be amusing, Ice the Earth spy and Dog the Comet Fall spy, both trying to not give himself away to his best friend, as Ajki sends them to Isakson for training. "Not fair that XR and Presidential have Warriors, and I don't!"

I'm going to let _Professor sit for a week or so, then read it over add, subtract, multiply . . . before I turn it over to you guys for competitive editing. One change I'll make will be to remove any giveaways about Ice. I'll leave a bit of foreshadowing, of course.

Obviously, yes. Do you even have to ask this crowd to know that the answer to "should I write *book title*?" is always yes?

matapampamuphoff on October 28th, 2019 09:27 pm (UTC)
*Whine* but I have no story, no plot, no idea what happens! Other than, at some point Eldon yells for the God of Spies.

Write it! Write it NOW! 8^)
Do you even have to ask that question? You KNOW you have us all deeply addicted to more Wine of the Gods books. As for all the rest, ask for suggestions! I'm sure you'll get enough to work out all the rest.

Re: Write it! Write it NOW! 8^)
Well, yeah, but what I was planning on writing for NaNo was to finish getting King Jason properly crowned, with the aid of that kid magician, Exzy.

Then somehow that line about having to choose between saving Eldon from the Cyborgs, or the Cyborgs from Eldon popped out of nowhere . . .

Love Exzy, but its sequence time for Cyborgs.

It seems the cyborgs are nasty, active and growing, they need some trimming before they become a big problem.
(Anonymous) on October 29th, 2019 06:24 am (UTC)
I was hoping for Ryol and Arno's next year with that troublemaker Axbi coming in a year behind them. But saving the mean cyborgs from Eldon works.
And as much as i was loving Exsy's adventures, as was already noted, it is a few years off in the timeline id that matters

Yes, please write it. You've been dangling cyborgs in front of us for several books now, teasing us.

going to be interesting watching you fit in the Saturday Night bit - either indirectly or perhaps more directly? Hmmm. Exzy and Jason would be good too.
You know Pam I don't really care what Wine of the Gods stuff you write -
as long as you keep writing :)
No pressure :)

The cover
Aquaman meets Trinity, guaranteed to make you question your reality. A bit rough yet but a nice feel to it. Eldon is a bit too pale, but it really looks like his type. Just please don't leave the gun like that.

Re: The cover
Agreed, the gun feels jarringly out-of-place for the Wine of the Gods universe. I always pictured the Oner laser weapons (if that's what that is supposed to represent) as looking more compact and real-weapon-like rather than "science fictiony" with pointy bits sticking out. Something a little bit like the PPGs from Babylon 5, in fact: small and efficient, and able to be carried in a holster. The gun in that picture... well, there's no way you could carry it in a holster: it would snag on everything.

Timelinewise, this one should probably be released before Professor IF you still have Rael doing any investigating where Xen has to rescue her (that takes place in the cybort short following Serpent).

Also, the timeslip problem is really weird, with the WWII dimension split and Bushy Jaejong coming from a long time ago. Cyborg earth must run faster than Eaarth Prime. Is that how Xen got interested, tracking down Jaejong's roots?
matapampamuphoff on October 31st, 2019 02:59 am (UTC)
No, that little scene is now defunct.

The Cyborg world is going a bit faster than Earth Prime. they had the cybertech and infiltrated a scout, a no-show mentalist with a mental spells physical shield AKA Jaejong, into Earth Prime in the late 20th century, and who kickstarted genetic engineering.

By the time of Utopia and then Xen's encountering them, they've had an uninterrupted 14+ centuries to explore and expand.

The only good thing about their strong control, is that they've stopped being inventive.
