Jacob Travlers Goes on an Indefinite Hiatus

Can I share a secret with you all? Writing fiction can be challenging, especially if what one is writing is a long, plot driven narrative that requires cohesion and few (hopefully none) plot holes and incongruities. Frankly, The Life and Times of Jacob Travlers has turned out to be more than I can chew in this season of my life. When I first began this story, I aspired to write a serial epic in the style of the pulp stories…

The Life and Times of Jacob Travlers: Chapter 4

Chapter 4: Begins with a Single Step “You don’t have to leave tonight,” said Esau. Jacob shifted the straps of his pack on his shoulders and adjusted his scarf as a chill wind rose. Margaret hustled and bustled about the kitchen, lighting candles whose glow melded into the orange of the setting sun. She was gathering biscuits, hard cheese, and a skin of wine.

The Life and Times of Jacob Travlers

Chapter 1: Dragons and Evictions The snow from the previous night grew heavier in the morning sun. The door to the Drunken Dragon shook and heaved as those inside dug their heels into the tavern floor and pulled, hoping to overcome the frozen snow and ice that cemented the door in its frame. Droplets cascaded from old eaves. Then with one muffled chorus of huffs and grunts, the bank spilled through the tavern door while half a dozen sweaty men…
