The first two draft versions of Chapter One and Two of Serpents Blood are currently online and available for download on the manuscripts and files page. They are hand written notes drafted in dank, squalid US prison cells, so don’t expect them to be of the same standard as a typed and fully edited material. I would imagine that the final version will be quite different to the rough drafts.
As to my prolonged absence from this site…I have my own websites to maintain, which requires a lot of work. This website is but one of many, and all of them require updating on a constant basis.
