At this point, Second-Hand Dresses has been drafted and is now entering the pipeline to get published. This means a couple rounds of editing, then saving up money from patrons to pay for editors and printing, and then actually publishing it.
The dress was beautiful and perfect. No one, even the pickiest of people had nothing to say and Lily could finally relax. But how to you relax the day after it happens? Well, two good friends of hers have an idea.
Today, Alex Penland is releasing their second book, The Letter Mage: Second Quatro. This series is a collection of short and long stories following the 14-year-old Aleph as he infiltrates the departments of the Lunar University, encountering love, espionage, and academia.

As we are in the final stretch of Second-Hand Dresses. As of today, the novel has been drafted out and the rest of the chapters scheduled.
To combat being overwhelmed by my many projects and obligations, I wrote a little tool to aggregate my todo lists across GitLab and GitHub.

To make it easier to read my chapters and posts, I've hooked up a number of mailing lists to my various websites. This way, you can get the chapters or my blog posts (or announcements if you want them less frequently) directly to your mail box.
Embarrassed at being caught making out with Mindil, Lily sits down with her two lovers to talk about their future. To her surprise, both are willing to accept the other and Mindil even promises her husband. There is only one thing Lily has to do....
Working through the tears of her betrayal to her best friend, Lily dreads hearing the door on her store ring out. There were only two people who would show up, both of them ready to ruin her day. It was just a matter of which one would come.
Lily dreaded having lunch with Mindil and Hasan. As much as she adored both of them, the guilt of her adulterous night with Hasan hung over her like a blade poised at her neck.
I've summarized both income and expenses over 2017 when it comes to writing and publishing books.
Lily's perfect morning started as she finished the embroidery on Nirih's dress. She is finally able to focus and the dress was finally coming into shape. However, everything is put into risk when Mindil shows up.
On Lexember 31, I present norikuchyofune.
When Lily wakes up with a torn dress and a man face-down in her lap, there really is only one thing she can do: try not to get too excited and take a shower. Of course, even a simple task like that can be fraught with dangers.
Worried about Kendrick, Lily rushed to the port area to rescue him. What she finds is a drunken water mage trying to drown himself with the memory of her hanging over his head.
As we come up to the end of the year, here is an exhaustive list of things I've written that are eligible for 2017 awards.

Encouraged by Tabithas, Lily is ready to face Hasan in her house again. This time, she is sure she will be able to resist his seduction and focus on what is important, keeping her business and her honor by following her mother's threats.
This week, I have a little rant about birth control and introduce the next chapter of Lily's tale.
At Rose Manor, Lily presents herself to her mother who is furious about Lily not finishing Nirih's dress. Stunned and unable to respond, Lily is berated by her mother who threatens one of the things most precious to Lily if she doesn't complete the dress.
While being driven back to Rose Manor, the full impact of the night before strikes Lily. She realizes that she had betrayed Mindil's trust by sleeping with Hasan and the guilt seems to stab her in the loneliness of the carriage.
After a night of passion, Lily wakes up to Hasan who is still interesting in going a few rounds. Their intimacy is interrupted by Tabithas, who has a dire summon for Lily at her mother's house.
Hasan serves Lily a feast that sets the stage for her own struggle with her lusts. It doesn't take too long before her ill-fated attempt to relieve her passions backfire and she finds herself falling into the man she had fallen for.
