Amazing.

Originally posted on Ingrid’s Notes:

I love to collect words. Making word lists can help to find the voice of my story, dig into the emotion of a scene, or create variety.

One of my on-going word collections is of colors. I love to stop in the paint section of a hardware store and find new names for red or white or yellow.  Having a variety of color names at my…

I’m someone.
That should be enough reason not to hurt me."

Now on Goodreads: read a free excerpt from chapter 16 of THE AUTOMATION

You can read an excerpt from chapter 16 of THE AUTOMATION on Goodreads right now. Let us know what you think.

And, just so you know, it was super hard to pick an portion that did not need a lot of context. Also, it was super hard to pick one that did not have footnotes because you can’t just choose a section and not have formally introduced Gabbler from the start. Otherwise, people might think…

10 things you might not know about THE AUTOMATION – in GIFs

10 things you might not know about THE AUTOMATION – a dark fantasy novel about ancient Automata invading our modern world:

  1. There are Automata (uppercase-A, yes, thank you) in this novel. They’re divine as fuck and not made by men - though they’re often mistaken for human. Here’s a lowercase-a automaton to illustrate what they are NOT like.
  2. Those Automata can only function with a human soul. Thus, they need a human “Master” to wind them up. This makes for some awkward situations for some of the characters.
  3. The Greco-Roman gods Vulcan and Venus have small roles in the novel. Though they play a bigger part later on in the series and will likely eff more shit up for the poor human characters.
  4. One of the characters is a cat. Don’t ignore the cat. Though the cat can ignore YOU.
  5. One character’s sexuality is changed in the novel. Because the gods Vulcan and Venus need him to like girls instead of boys. And it’s not fair.
  6. The Narrator (whose abbreviated name is B.L.A.) and the Editor (Gabbler, whose contributions show up as footnotes) are also characters in the story. It’s actually B.L.A.’s memoir, you could say (though Gabbler is of the mind it’s – ahem – obviously embellished). [But just to be clear: the novel is written by one person, not two, despite what they tell you. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN -The Author, Singular].
  7. It is for readers who like sf novels set in “this” world like: Vicious, The Magicians, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, American Gods, Infinite Jest.
  8. It claims to be Epic Poetry, but it’s written in prose. Thus “Prose Epic” is apparently applicable.
  9. The novel breaks the fourth wall. It knows it’s a novel. Meta to the max.
  10. You can read the first chapter online for free. Be our guest. Enjoy the show. 

THE AUTOMATION is available for DRM-free Kindle download. In all countries. Maybe. Probably. WE DON’T KNOW, OK? The paperback will release this month. Sign up to follow our blog for more updates.

HECK YES
