Welcome to Crimson Glass

Hello! I'm glad you've found your way to my home on the web. This website features fanfiction about General Hospital and has been online since September 19, 2002. There are a few things you should probably know before you venture further to read.

  • I love Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan. I love them separately, I love them together. So if either of those characters or Liason in general are your kryptonite, you should click the back button and go. Happy travels.
  • I hate Franco. I will always hate Franco. You will never see a piece of fiction from me that treats him kindly. He is a lying, violent sexual sociopathic serial killer. I hate Franco. If you like him, you will not change my mind. I hate him.
  • If at anytime you wish to stop receiving email from my site after signing up, the emails you receive include an unsubscribe button. Use it. I removed one person because they asked but going forward, it's on you to control your email. The link is there.

Updates are listed below in the blog, but you can also see a list of updates here.

I am not currently posting any ongoing novels. I am expecting to publish For the Broken Girl, Book 1 in May and Mad World, Book 3 in September.

For a full schedule of upcoming projects, please check out the Production Schedule.

March 29, 2020

Hey! It’s Sunday morning here, and I just slept for eight hours after spending most of last night finishing up For the Broken Girl, Book 1. What I’ve completed is the alpha draft — the first pass at the story. I haven’t reread large portions of it, and there are a lot of typos, inconsistencies, and plot holes. So the next step is to go into the revision stage.

I don’t know how much work needs to be done until I do a full reread, so that’s going to determine the final publication date. At the moment, I know that there are characters and subplots that need fleshing out, and I expect to add two or more chapters at some point in the story before we get to the end. At the same time, I’ll be going into Camp NaNoWriMo on April 1, working on the alpha draft of Mad World, Book 3.


I’ve updated Production Schedule with these dates, but here is what the next six weeks looks like:

28 March 2020: Complete For the Broken Girl, Book 1 – Alpha Draft & Patreon Release for Crimson Love tier

29 March 2020: Complete Mad World, Book 3 – Outline

30 March 2020: Complete Mad World, Book 3 – Plot Sketch

31 March 2020: Begin Mad World, Book 3 – Chapter Breakdown & Soundtrack

1 April 2020: Begin Camp NaNoWriMo – Mad World, Book 3 Alpha Draft is chosen project. Goal is 50,000 words.

4 April 2020: Reread For the Broken Girl, Book 1 – Alpha Draft and make revision notes.

5 April 2020: Begin revising For the Broken Girl, Book 1 – Alpha Draft

19 April 2020: Complete For the Broken Girl, Book 1- Beta Draft & Patreon Release for Crimson Devoted tier.

30 April 2020: Complete Camp NaNoWriMo and assess Mad World, Book 3 production schedule.

1 May 2020: Complete For the Broken Girl, Book 1 – Posting Draft & Patreon Release for Crimson Adored tier.

5 May 2020: Publish For the Broken Girl, Book 1 ebook for Patreon Crimson Adored tier & begin publishing chapters on Crimson Glass.


Note: Depending on revisions, everything Broken Girl releated after April 19 is subject to change, but the absolute latest publication for Broken Girl is May 18.

I’ll be posting three chapters a week — Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays — which should take us through August. And then in September, I’ll begin posting Mad World Book 3.

March 28, 2020

I’m just popping in to say about five minutes ago, I finished the alpha draft of For the Broken Girl, Book 1. It’s just over 148,000 words and 28 chapters long! I did it! The alpha draft will be going up on Patreon for my $3 and above supporters shortly — but I wanted to let you guys know we’re one step closer to May’s publication date.

I’ll be back later when I have more revision details for you but I’ve been writing for four hours and I wrote 8k just tonight so I need to let my brain relax.

BUT I FINISHED IT!

March 19, 2020

Hello! The last time I checked in was with a site & story status post. I made another about two weeks ago on YouTube, intending to get back and post a text version here but then I got sick — again. So let me recap —

I had a great writing month in February. I wrote about 77k words for Broken Girl, and got very close to finishing. I was actually on target to finish early — until I got slammed with a reallly bad cold. Don’t worry — I never ran a fever or had any Covid-19 symptoms, but it basically took me out for a week. And just as I started to feel better, I got a second cold. This happens to me a lot — I have a really crappy immune system and generally catch a few in a row once the initial welcome mat is laid out.

So just as I was starting to recover, the world kind of…fell apart. I live in NJ and some positive cases of Covid-19 are in my county. Instead of using my evenings for writing, I had to start planning for remote learning. We’re closed in my district as of Tuesday, and the first three days have been interesting. It’s been hard to get in the right frame of mind for writing, to be honest.

I blew through my first dead line of March 14, and I’m likely to miss my second deadline of March 23. However, I’m starting Chapter 24 tonight, and I have seven more chapters to finish. I can still finish by that final March 31 deadline. The only drawback is not having a lot of time for Mad World Discovery. I’m okay with that — it’s not a new project, but the final book in an ongoing story and large pieces are figured out. Post-production might be longer, but we’re still good for Camp NaNoWriMo in April.

So let’s get our minds off the crazy stuff going on outside our door! I posted a bonus preview on Patreon open to the public — Chapter One of For the Broken Girl!

February 15, 2020

It’s been ages since we did one of these posts but I realized I’ve been mostly putting this content into the YT videos and not typing it up for anyone who doesn’t want to watch so let me put together a progress post.

Site & Channel Status

Crimson Glass is doing pretty well. I have enough Patreon support to take care of hosting bills and put away to keep investing in DVDs and software that helps me write. Scrivener 3 (the program I use to write) will be coming out of beta in the next few months so I’ll be able to buy it when that happens.

I’m working on relaunching the Ebooks feature. I can’t figure out the best way to display that content and I’m also shopping around for a better program to create the ebooks. Scriv might be an option, but it’s in beta which means my settings always disappear. I have to wait until the release before investigating that.

Crimson Glass YouTube Channel 

I’ve learned a lot about making videos in the last two months so I’m hoping to do a soft relaunch and actually refilm most of the content I’ve posted with a bit more organization. Graphics, a better back drops, a more planned calendar, etc. I recently launched a Damaged series, but I’ll be relaunching that sometime this week with the lessons I’ve learned.

I was able to create a brand account so now it actually says Crimson Glass, lol. Check it out and subscribe — I need 74 more subscribers to get a custom URL (like http://youtube.com/crimsonglass)

Over at Patreon, I’m making a lot of video content. I film 2-3 videos a week. There’s usually 1-2 writing updates and then I’m working on a Writing Series for Mad World Book 3 where I take you guys through the entire writing process, from Discovery through Editing. There’s also a bunch of a long videos where I talk through a bunch of projects — a huge Fool Me Twice spoiler video that’s almost an hour, lol. If you’re interested in listening to me rant, that’s an option for you.

Story Status

In Progress

  • For the Broken Girl, Book 1
    • I’m so excited how this story is progressing. I started it in November for NaNoWriMo but had some drafting issues. I went back into the planning stages for a few weeks, but then relaunched the drafting phase on January 2.
    • January was a rough month for writing, but I’m at about 57k right now and nearly 20k of that has been written since last Sunday. I’m about 40% of the way done the first draft and my deadline is between March 14-31. I’d like to finish closer to March 14, but March 31 is the absolute last day. If I keep the pace I’m writing at now (20k a week), I should finish around March 14-16.
    • I have a tentative posting schedule set for  Monday, May 12. I’ll keep you posted. It may shift a week later or earlier depending on my editing.
  • Mad World, Book 3
    • I’m planning to start writing Book 3 for April Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m working on a Patreon Video series where I take you through the writing process from Discovery to Release which includes brainstorming, outlining, drafting, editing, etc.
    • My Camp NaNoWriMo goal hasn’t been set yet. I won’t know for sure until I finish the Discovery stage and set my preliminary word count. The plan is to write half of it in April and then finish it in May & June so I can edit in July & August.
    • Firm Release Date: Wednesday September 3, 2020.

Up Next

  • Fool Me Twice, Book 1
    • In May, once Broken Girl has been edited, I’ll be launching the FMT discovery process — or rather relaunching it. It’ll be a lot shorter than both Broken Girl and Mad World since I have so much of the story figured out, but I need to refine some of my starting details.
    • The plan is to begin drafting FMT Book 1 in July Camp NaNoWriMo, and then have it finished sometime in August or September.
    • Tentative Release: December 2020.
  • Damaged, Season 3
    • I’m launcing a YouTube series analyzing what I’ve already written and going back into Editing & Discovery to fix a few things and rewrite a small portion of Season 2. Once I’ve settled on the rewrite, Damaged, Season 3 goes into Discovery.
    • I’m hoping to write Damaged Season 3 for November NaNoWriMo.
    • Tentative Release: January-March 2021.

After That

After that, my schedule is pretty open. I’ll have Broken Girl & Fool Me Twice still on my radar — they’re trilogies that will need two more books.  I also want to tackle Feels Like Home because I would love to have that done in 2022 so it’s done before 2024 hits which is when the story is set.

I also want to finally finish off the sequels I planned — Burn in Heaven (A Few Words Too Many) and Malice (Bittersweet). Damaged also has a Season 4 that I want to finish up. Lots of things in the works!

Your update link – The Next Best Thing – Part 4

Thanks so much for joining me this holiday season by returning to Bittersweet and The Best Thing. I hope you guys enjoyed the stories! For now, this is the last content I’m promising until May when I publish For the Broken Girl, Book 1. There may be some flash fiction and short stories, but I’ll be concentrating primarily on novels this year.

You can find YouTube content on my channel where I’m still making videos about my stories — I’m working my way through all of my old stories and revisiting what it was like to write them. I’m also hoping to get some ebooks done, but Broken Girl is getting all of my energy.

Have a great 2020!

Your Update Link: The Next Best Thing

Once I started writing The Next Best Thing, The Best Thing‘s holiday story, I realized that the story I needed to tell was a bit longer than just a two part epilogue. Soooo I’m 9k in and only halfway done. It’s basically a novella. Which means you get Part 1 starting today so that it still finishes on New Year’s Day.

I hadn’t planned on it being…what it is, so I wasn’t ready to post it today or have it be a separate short sequel so I’ve been scrambling to make graphics and the story page. I’ve got the In Progress section updated and at least one graphic made. I’ll be back tomorrow with Part 2!

I also unlocked a long Patreon video I made about The Best Thing and that is linked on the story page. Enjoy!

December 24, 2019

Merry Christmas Eve! I’m posting the first of my two holiday stories, a Christmas epilogue for Bittersweet which picks up about ten days after the original epilogue left off. Jason and Elizabeth are settling into their travels, beginning with Venice while still dealing with old baggage. I hope you guys like it! I’ll see you back on New Year’s Eve for Part 1 of The Next Best Thing (my holiday sequel to The Best Thing. I know, cheesy af, right?)
