Chapter 2: The Third Impossible Thing
    Despite the protests of their parents, the children of the village were more motivated by their curiosity and excitement at the sight of a giant than by fear or caution.  Thus, did the Kalevide make his way to Nasva, in the hour before sundown.  Already word has spread to the nearby houses and docks about their visiting friend, who had made himself comfortable sitting against the side of a barn near the center of town.  His legs were sprawled out across the east road out of town and he playfully shot knowing glances at the young ones who were trying to sneak a look at him while his head was turned.
    With a playful look on his face, he changed his seat and let his long legs extend across the Nasva River.  Closing his eyes he pretended not to notice the children at all.  At first only the boldest ones would even approach the giant.  In short order the children were not only touching their king, but jumping onto him from a nearby wo

Chapter 1: A House Without Walls
    As many times as Vesa looked at the cloud that morning, he was certain that it had not moved from its place in the sky.  It was the last day of summer, and a cool breeze rippled the surface of the lake, and he longed to be out on the waters instead of mending fishing nets.  Despite the weather, the cloud kept its place in the sky, but to him it was only the second most interesting sight in the heavens.
    “Come on Mikk, ask him.”  Innar and Vallo had spent most their morning goofing off, as usual, but it now seemed like they were turning their attention to Vesa.  Not missing the opportunity, Mikk dropped his needle and strode over to Vesa, blocking his view of the lake and sunny sky.
    “So Vesa, tell me about the tree.”  Reaching out his massive hand, Mikk shoved Vesa’s shoulder and laughed.  But Vesa was ready for it and simply let himself fall over backwards.  The boys all got their

Prologue: Visitors from the Northern Wilds
    There are few things worse than waking up before you’re ready.  Kwaku kept his eyes closed and hoped the noise from the birds in the forest would quiet down, but they did not.  Usually he welcomed the sound of his feathered friends; but today the tropical birds had woken him up before the light of the sun, and there was no comfort to be found in their chattering.
    “Curse those birds, too eager to start the day before even Nyame is awake.”  He rubbed his eyes awake as he sat up, stretching out his back and legs.
    To his side, his wife breathed in deep, revealing she was awake as well.  But she did not open her eyes or move.
    “Nobody is ever ready for the day to start.  You just get up and make breakfast for the children because you love your wife who spent the better half of the night caring for your infant child and…”
    “Say no more dear one.”

Konoha Vice - Chapter 20
    It was three in the morning but Kiba knew there was nothing waiting for him at home.  After everyone else had stumbled back to their apartments, he drove up the strip to clear his head.
    Stopping at a sign, his attention was drawn to his left where he saw several people chasing each other on the sidewalk and breaking out in a fight.  Instinctively his hand went to his gear shifter but then he saw the man with a camera filming them.  Watching them for a moment Kiba found their style of taekwondo rather interesting.  But to film at 3am might mean they were filming ‘Guerilla style’ without a permit.  After a couple of takes, he decided to park close to their filming and find out the name of their project.
    Sure enough the director, an enthusiastic Korean gentleman, was trying to make the movie on the cheap and this was the best time to film fight scenes on the streets.  Not wanting to waste his time and won

Konoha Vice - Chapter 19
    Joan Jett’s “I love Rock and Roll” was playing over the apartment’s stereo system as Sakura finally got around to opening Sasuke’s present.  Ino kept trying to sing along but Kiba was interjecting with lyrics to Weird Al’s “I love Rocky Road” to mess with her.
    “No way, a CD Player?” That finally caught Hinata’s attention.  Sure enough Sasuke had bought her one of those new disc players, played media through an internal laser instead of magnetic tape or audio needles.  Sakura gave him a big bug and a kiss on the cheek, Hinata did her best to look happy but she was still trying to process her roommate/girlfriend and her professional rival as dating.
    The short exchanged that followed Sasuke entering the apartment had consisted of: everyone wondering what history was between Sasuke and Hinata, Hinata mentioning Sasuke’s record of frustrating cases on opposing sid

Konoha Vice - Chapter 18
    “What are you doing in the office on a Saturday Ms. Hyuuga?” Mabui, Mr. A’s personal assistant asked from just outside Hinata’s door, “I could have sworn you made a point about not coming in today.”
    “Couldn’t be helped,” Hinata closed a file and sat back in her chair, “Had to make sure the requests from the Mayor’s Office got done before writing up statements for the three cases I have on Monday.”
    “Well I was just here to pick up a few documents for the boss.  How about you let me give you a hand with those requests so you can focus on the cases?”  Mabui was no slouch when it came to legal work; she had left as junior partner from the biggest law office in Little Kumo, which was the same firm Mr. A had worked at for 24 years.
    “I won’t turn down a pair of helping hands; I do try to have a social life outside of here.”

Konoha Vice - Chapter 17
    Somehow sitting in his car in his driveway for an hour seemed like the most natural thing in the world to Kiba.  Perhaps it was the way the wind swept through the clouds in the sky, or the sound of the off and on rain pattering against his convertible’s roof.  After the long talk with Kakashi and Hiruzen he just didn’t feel much like doing anything.
    With a drawn out sigh he left the car and finally went into his house where he dropped himself onto the couch.  Out of the corner of his eye the blinking red light of his answering machine started to bother him so he finally turned it on, but the sound of Shino’s voice immediately made him regret his decision.
    “Didn’t see you at the office this afternoon.  Hope you didn’t forget our plans.  I don’t care what kind of trouble you’re in with the chief; you’re paying me back tonight.  I’ll be by to pick you up at 7

Update: Novel Progression

Fri Dec 2, 2016, 3:12 PM
Wow that's a fancy font for the title of this journal entry.  And a very plain font for the body text.

Anyways, so it's been almost a month since my last update.  I've been struggling through my second draft, making a lot of changes to the novel, and bouncing back and forth between ideas for the characters and the plot.  But you can hardly blame me, first books are hard and I'm also including mythological figures into my story, who are literally larger than life.

Spent the better part of today writing outlines for the appendices I plan to include at the end of the novel (educational notes at the end of a novel meant for kids/young adults?  You're just padding the word count, aren't you?)

I'm around a month away from when I plan to publish the novel, and while I haven't gotten the text finely polished yet, I'm getting to the point where I'm thinking about the other things I will need before I make it available for sale.  Namely, I'm starting to look for artists to draw a book cover.  I've already sent out a couple of notes to some of the artists I know, but have yet to get a reply back.

It is a rather daunting thing though, seeing as how I would like the artist to be available to make covers for the other 19 books I have planned, but that's a matter for another day.

That's about it for now.  Hope you are all having a nice day.

And if you know an artist looking to do some book cover work, toss a note my way and we'll see if we can make something happen :D

Fairly well, first chapter kicked my butt but it's coming along now.  Still clearly in draft stage, but I'm still confident I'll have it ready by the end of the year :D
