After spending the year grinding away at various stories, I have finally managed to complete another new work to finish off 2022 -- and it couldn't have come at a better time.
Being Excited About Writing Again
Writing can be such an elusive high. There's the thrill of being in progress of course, and the cosmic release of actually putting something out into the world, but if you're not careful, you can crash. I'm prone to it -- in 2022 I spent a lot of time feverishly hammering away on something I … Continue reading Being Excited About Writing Again
The Liam Slade 2023 Slate
Hi all, I'm taking time out of my day being Realname to pass along some updates about what I hope to achieve in 2023. I had very high hopes for 2022 and they didn't all materialize. That's okay, I worked hard and pursued a lot of ideas that didn't meet my satisfaction. At the end … Continue reading The Liam Slade 2023 Slate
Taking a breather (and getting back to it)
Somewhere along the way -- maybe amidst some very heartfelt responses to stories like The Fish of the Desert and Cat Fisher -- I found my standards being raised. There are a few stories on this site that maybe don't live up to what I want to do but for the most part everything I … Continue reading Taking a breather (and getting back to it)

I managed to get The Princess Awakening written in an impressively short time, and had hopes that I could repeat the trick several times throughout the year. Well, the … Continue reading Long time no see – an update
Return to the Trading Post and the TG Wiki
Some updates on what I've been up to lately.
The Problems with Cloning
I thought I was being so smart. I didn't really think it through, and things went bad really quick. Back in Fall of 2021, just after I published Kristi's Mom, I participated in a scientific experiment in creating fully functional human duplicates -- a clone, which would have all of my memories and identity. I … Continue reading The Problems with Cloning
I was interviewed!
I answered a few questions for TG author and enthusiast TG Kadee/Cooper at their blog. They had some kind things to say about The Princess Awakening and prompted me for some questions about the story and my writing process. I had a lot of fun and hopefully you'll enjoy reading it -- check it out … Continue reading I was interviewed!
Now available: The Princess Awakening!
The Princess Awakening tells the story of Shauna Laurence, an introverted girl too intimidated to talk to boys, but who dreams of royalty and fairy tale romance -- literally. Only now, she's learned, there is more to these dreams and stories than she knows...
Whoo, that was scary, I kinda-sorta deleted my whole site while trying to change my plan at WordPress? That's what you get when you don't read thoroughly. I think everything is back and functioning 100%, but if anyone sees any issues please let me know. Unless you can't see this post. -Liam
