Dispatches from Chelandia

I made a new thing.  It's called Dispatches from Chelandia.  It will chronicle the adventures of various people in a world I created for the novel I'm currently stuck on.  The idea is to create a serialized blog form thingy that'll allow me to create and work within my novel's world without having to figure out a beginning, middle, and end all at the same time.  Many thanks to things like Welcome to Night Vale and Scarfolk Council for giving me the idea of doing it this way.

In the future, you'll have the chance to help me build Chelandia and write the stories that take place within its borders.

Chelandia is magic, technology, satire, surrealism, funny, weird, science fiction, fantasy, a mashing together of ideas cribbed from the minds of such luminaries as China Mieville, Douglas Adams, Raymond Chandler, and H. P. Lovecraft. 

Come help me begin the exploration.


  1. Sounds like fun. What can I do?

  2. for now, read and let me know what you think! If you like it, share it with your social media friends. This is in its infancy. I have about 150 pages written in the novel that is the basis for this, so I'll be dribbling that out onto the blog over time along with new content written specifically for the blog. Thanks for your interest!

  3. My long term idea is that once I have enough of the story out there that I think my readers can get a deep sense of the world and its characters (and assuming I'm able to build an audience), I'll open up the blog to submissions.
