So it’s been quiet around here for a little bit after my last big announcement and I apologize for that. Unfortunately, unlike some silences, this one wasn’t for a good reason as I’ve been sick as all get out for a bit. Thankfully, I’m now back to maybe 80 percent, which means things are about to get back to business.
Some quick updates on what little I have managed to accomplish in the meantime:
Rune Service has been moved back to later this month. The manuscript is tight, the editing is just about done, and the art is on its way!
Everything is on course for Pensacon! My stock should be in next week, as well as some fresh new business cards. My excitement continues to grow!
I did get some reading and some listening done while I was convalescing. We will have both a Starving Review and a Starving Audioreview this coming week, maybe even TWO Reviews.
My schedule is also heating up as I enter into some new writing and editing contracts this month. That may mean we’ll be sticking to the bare basics in terms of updates until these deadlines are met. Wish me luck!
Thank you for your patience in this regard! Expect new content by the end of the week and until then, good reading, good writing, and good luck!
If you couldn’t tell by the title of this article, I’ve been essentially in burn-out recovery for the past few weeks. Many of us who write know of the stress that attempting NaNoWrMo can bring on, trying to write an entire novel-length manuscript in a month.
Try doing that three months in a row. Three whole novels in three months with deadlines and marketing windows to hit and all of that good grid.
My dog is doing well now and I have gotten both the second editions of Indomitable and The Opening Bell published! Both excellent things and only the first steps to a lot more nice things coming down the aisle. Now it’s on towards publishing some sequels, which should come by the end of the month.
In addition, I’ve gotten some nice reviews this week so the support and validation make for a happy writer.
The last big knot of anxiety is my Kickstarter. If it doesn’t succeed, well, it will be a blow to the self-esteem, but not the end of the world. The books will publish and I will undoubtedly open a second Kickstarter with a lower goal, more in line with what I have proven I can raise. Still, if you read this and want to support it, there’s only 68 some hours left to do so. We are so close to the goal, it’s still not out of sight!
