Other Works by TCC Edwards

As I work on the Far Flung Novel, I thought I would re-share some of the other fiction I’ve worked on.

The Door He Chose, part of Convergence by the Busan Writing Group

After a horrible accident, Sean rushes toward one of the two front doors of his parents’ car to open first. The story diverges into two possible timelines – one where he chooses the right side, one where he chooses the left. And yet, somehow, the two divergent paths keep crossing over …


The Faces They Wore, part of Nothing Too Familiar by the Busan Writing Group

Nothing Too Familiar: Vignettes of Korea by [Edwards, TCC, Geer, MA, Viau, SA]

Daniel, a lonely foreigner in Korea, gives in to peer pressure and hires a prostitute in the red light district of Busan. Once he’s had his night with her, he thinks it’s over … until fate brings them together again, away from her nighttime work. He discovers a common bond – but is it strong enough to hold their strange love together?


Painted Blue Eyes, part of eFiction Vol. 06 No. 04 by FictionMagazines.com

While helping his Aunt Beatrice prepare to sell her old family home, Gregory discovers one of his dead mother’s paintings in Beatrice’s attic. The painting is smeared with his mother’s blood, and only Aunt Beatrice knows the true story behind it. Gregory is forced to choose between his love of Aunt Beatrice, his only living family member, and knowing the truth behind his mother’s tragic death.

My first ever published piece – honestly, I link to this because I hope it shows how much my writing has grown. For all its flaws, I still love this story as the real beginning of my writing career.

Far Flung is going well!

I am drafting a novel of Far Flung, and you can see where I’m going with it. Over at Inkshares, I have the first 7 chapters up today. My regular readers will notice many differences between this novel-in-progress and the episodes I’ve posted on this blog. First of all, I’ve gone with a third person POV for the novel, as that will allow me to bring the reader more detail and better characterization. The blog episodes will remain as first-person log entries with the occasional transcript – the plan is to have the blog episodes tie-in with the trilogy of novels.

Did I just say ‘trilogy’?

Oh yeah. You see, this first novel is now called Far Flung: Castaways, and it will cover the events of Episodes 1-12 on this blog. Characters will be fleshed out, events will be expanded, and some new events will be added. This novel will take the colonists from being ‘lost in space’ to a temporary home on a rogue planet. All I can say about the second novel is this: notice my use of the word temporary.

What about this blog?

I’m paying for it, so I better do something with it, eh? The episodes that are up here will stay up, with new episodes to follow soon. It’s hard to write both this novel and the episodes, but I’ll do my best. I’ll likely edit the existing episodes somewhat to reflect some changes to the story. I’m working to ensure that the major events in the blog version still happen in the novel; the main changes will mostly be in pacing, characterization, and background detail.

I’ll have more news soon. Bookmark this blog, check out my other site, and keep on reading!
