Coming Up

November is already shaping up to be a busy month. First, I’ve got the first half of the Invisible Entente finale edits coming in, so I’ll be focused on getting that cleaned up and on its way to go to beta readers in December; then, I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year, aiming to complete the first draft of the new Andvell book by the end of the month. I’ve also begun another project, advocating for Canadian indie authors. I’ll be keeping those updates separate from my writing blog, but if you’re interested, you can check out Northern Words and follow for updates.

But the big news:

For a while now I’ve felt that it was time to get this blog going again from a writing standpoint. It’s been years since Greylands, and I’ve missed the real-time interaction with readers as we worked through that serial.

As a result, starting next week, I’m kicking off another blog-hosted story. This one won’t be a compilation of authors, but it will be a joint venture between you, the reader, and myself.

May I present: Ill Met by Moonlight, a choose-your own adventure series about a dream study called Project Oberon. Six subjects are put into a medically induced coma to test whether dreams can be manipulated and tracked by external conditions. The story follows Subject 315, Regan, as she navigates her way through the dream world, and you, dear reader, will help me point her in the direction you wish her to go.

How will it work?

On the first Monday of every month, I’ll post the next chapter. At the end of the chapter, I’ll post two options for you to choose from. If you’re signed up for my mailing list, you’ll receive the link to cast your vote for which option Regan chooses. The poll will be open for two weeks, which will give me enough time to write the next installment.

The first chapter is written and ready to go, and you’ll find it here next Monday. See you then!



  1. Hi Krista,

    I want to thank you for this post, and especially for starting you new project, “advocating for Canadian indie authors.” I had to look it up on google, because I had no idea what an indie author was. So now I know, and I applaud you for doing this. I admit I am guilty about being one of those who scorned most self-published authors because the quality of their work was deplorable – and believe me, I’ve seen many. But I do admire the philosophy behind an author wanting to retain creative control on all phases of publishing, and I’m all for that, especially if that author is still willing to do the work of hiring the necessary people (like editors!) who can help create a credible and professional work. So thank you for sharing, and thank you for inspiring me to learn something new!




    1. Hi Nicole,

      Thank YOU for taking the time to look into it. The willingness to learn and ask questions is all we’re asking to change the thinking around what we do. Over 30,000 Canadian self-published in the last year alone. Some of them just because they could, sure, but others because it’s the best way for them to express themselves and share their passions and dreams with the world. It’s a fine line, but I believe there has to be a way to reflect the changes in the publishing scene. We’ll get there!
