Artifacts 2: The Coin

Artifacts 2: The Coin

Reba Carstairs received the ring and the amulet from Andrew, but her family life is far more important to her at the moment.  Might the artifacts help her sort things out?

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

When will this be available for download? Loved the first series and can't wait to see what happens in the next series.

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

It's available now, if you have PRM access.  At least the first three chapters are...

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

Probably a stupid question... but do you have a list of stories you're still working on actively, and a release schedule?

I know that you release Woodward6 on the first of every month. Was really happy with this story too, but I see it hasn't been updated since 2014... went into it thinking that it was complete, but now seems like it's abandoned...

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

*SIGH*

Every single story on this site has a "status" indicator.  If you will look at the information page for Artifacts 2, you will notice that it says "Serial/Novel - In Progress".

I would have thought that "In Progress" would have been clear enough to indicate that it was certainly NOT finished.

If the story had been abandoned (something I do not do, but is an option on the site), it would have been marked as such:  "Serial/Novel - Abandoned". 

Likewise, it could also be marked as "Serial/Novel - Inactive", but this doesn't apply to Artifacts 2, given the definition of "Inactive", which is no current intent to work on a story.

I write what wants to be written on any given day.  I have been waiting for Artifacts 2 chapter 5 to want to be written for a long time.  So far, I've had no luck in that.  Frankly, I hadn't realized that it had been two years since I posted last on that story.  But then, last year was such a bad writing year all around, I'm not really surprised.

For the record:

"In Progress" - A story is unfinished and is actively (if slowly) being worked on by the author.
"Completed" - A finished story that is not expected to see further alteration.
"Inactive" - A story that is unfinished, and that the author intends to get back to, but is not currently attempting to write on.
"Abandoned" - A story that is unfinished, and is almost certainly going to stay that way.

No, I do not have a release schedule for any story other than Woodward.  I've come dangerously close to failing my release schedule for Woodward, as it is.  I am coming to realize the attraction to those writers who release stories only after they are completed.  It removes the possibility of feedback-induced improvements to the story, but ensures that the readers won't start bitching at me because the story is unfinished.

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

I know it's been a rough time, but is there any new update for this story? I know you work on what you have inspiration for but we don't always know that right away, so just curious.

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

Don't expect to see the next chapter anytime soon.  As much as I'm struggling just to produce Woodward Academy, anything else is unlikely in the extreme until my muse gets off vacation.

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

I sometimes wonder if authors who do not release a chapter at a time get the 'is there more' (or any other variation) question less often.

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

Of course they do, because the answer to that question is rather obvious.  "I just released a book.  Of course there isn't more... in that book."

I'm quite sure they still get the "will you be writing a sequel?" question a lot (as do I), and the "when will your book be out?" question, if they have announced they're writing one...

But not the "is there more?" question.  That's kind of exclusive to us serial posters.

They also probably don't get as much feedback, as people will respond ONCE, when they've read the book, as opposed to once per chapter.

Awsome, I can't wait until "Candy" realizes they kidnapped the wrong daughter.

You really think she'll care?  Not like she's been fawning over Sissy, either...

Re: Artifacts 2: The Coin

Really enjoyed the new chapter especially after wondering for so long what the coin did. Hopefully there won’t be as long of a wait for the next chapter. Keep up the excellent work.
