Windy Bluffs

 Windy Bluffs is a bit of a strange name for a blog, unless it's a blog for poker bluffs. Let me explain. Windy Bluffs has a three-fold meaning for me. The actual dictionary definition would be along the lines of lies that require lots of air or long lies. That's a pretty negative definition. However, it can also mean novels. Novels are long tales that can use lots of air. The personal definition is that Windy Bluffs is a school for bards in my world Edradria, as well as the the history of the world. Much responsibility, that brings.
     In case you're wondering what type of stories you may hear about, I'll give you a brief over view of my projects, the non-classified ones of course. I might as well do the classified ones as well. It won't hurt anybody, I don't think.
 1. The Price of Freedom: The First Chapter in the Untold Tale of America's Finest in World War Three: Despite the long title, this project is at 20,000 words and about 1/3 of the way done. It tells the story of Lance Juno, commander of a commando battalion, as he leads his soldiers against the new Terran Federation, a ruthless and Utopian dictatorship in the year 2021 AD. It's part of a three trilogy series.
2. "A store owner, a professor, and a 13 year old pickpocket race to unearth a cursed idol from Atlantis before the Nazis find it." That's the log-line for Hunter Romero and the Atlantean Curse, a story meant to bring to mind the tales of the pulp era,  which is nearing the 30,000 word mark in the first draft.
3. Wilder and Gray, Soldiers of Fortune:  This series follows the adventures of an ex-commando, retired spy, and a gadget whiz as they are hired to do some of the most dangerous jobs in the 21st century. It's in planning at the moment.

 Those are my top three projects at the moment, as is a jazz song that I'm writing.

 I'll also do my best to publish a post at least two times a month, maybe more.



  1. I'm excited to see what you post here, Varon! That's intriguing about your blog name... thanks for sharing!

  2. You're welcome. It was the only thing I could think of for my first post.

  3. *smiles* I'll be watching. So should I put you on my every week or every two weeks or once a month check chart for blogs? ;)

    *looks forward to post she inspired*
    BTW, you're using perhaps my favorite blogger background.

  4. Thanks, I like it too.

    Every week for this month, and then every other week.

  5. When I saw the title, I thought it was about grass-covered hills with wind blowing swiftly by ... hah! Your twist on the name is very funny, and I like that!

  6. Thank you. I like it too, it's unique, and a bit funny.


Feel free to leave a comment, I really enjoy hearing what others think about my projects.

However, I do reserve the right to delete any comments I find that do not apply.
