Those of you who haven't read Aaron's story, A Tale of Romanian Chairs, on AuthorsDen -- this will be the first time you will be seeing this colaboration. There will me more in the future but I thought I would introduce my revisions to the story as one will see here. The way it is done the reader won't be able to tell which is me or which is Aaron. We wanted to do that on purpose to really mess with the reader. Aaron approached me about co-writing this one because he needed some dimension about the City of Stone and Steel itself. I mentioned a few times on this being it is the best story I didn't write, now here I am one of the co-authors of a story that is just as frightening as Library of Bones. This is one that I will say there are elements in there now that are distinct of my writing style, the descriptive element. Aaron's are the ability to write with characters. This is a combination of the two; I showed this story to Elizabeth Blue and a few others before I decided, Damn, I should host this myself from Writings From The Grave. So being that I got done writing House of Spiders and the Poe-esque Gruesome Cargo (everyone who reads this can find this one on diary-x.) I was ready to try something new, by co-writing with another writer. I toyed around with the idea for awhile now and did some colaborations in the past with another writer on Lilith's Lair. One writer I could see myself colaborating with is Gary Morton and with some from AuthorsDen. I will be doing these more often when I am in a rut with my own work. I was nervous about the idea at first doing a colaboration because I tried to do one before in 1997 with LASH but our styles of writing clashed, and the story I was trying to write was a horror story set on a carrier. That story was never completed; it went to the round file. Then came the colaboration with Angela Clarke (I wish I did more with her because her style is one of the stronger ones.) The idea came up again when Hasan Abood emailed me about the idea, I am more willing to do it more often now -- it is tough because of my older style but with the style I am using with the story, The Statue, then even more evident in House of Spiders. And with little more to say -- A Tale of Romanian Chairs. The colaboration idea was something I thought, this might work when I sent Bloodletting to Monette Bebow-Reinhard (thanx Mo for giving me the motivation to try doing a few colaborations again.) I decided to do this more as my author's notes, and the encouragement I got from Terry Vinson and Ronald Dondiego, and all the naysayers saying that I will never get out there -- this is especially for them. The question I have for them is this, "Can they do better? Really can you write better using my elements, or are you in the writing industry for the cheap thrill." The comments they make, "I have seen fanfiction written better than this," was the one that got me irked enough to write The Statue and Ghosts of War. Every author has their notes -- these are mine.
