General News: A Week of Sick (Not The Cool 90’s Kind of Sick)! a.k.a. Recovery and Getting Back to Work

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!

Book and General News: Candles burned at both ends and OMFG FAN ART

First, my deep and sincere apologies to those of you awaiting more Starving Reviews and other writing articles.  I’ve literally been burning my candle at both ends, writing books, editing books, reading books, writing articles, while still taking care of other personal and business responsibilities.  With the finish of my last book to write (The Twelfth Labor)and my last major revision left to do (Indomitable), I have suffered from a complete and overwhelming attack of exhaustion.  Maybe even a touch of exhaustion-based sickness.  I’m resting up so that, hopefully, things can return to normal levels of insanity around here by the end of the week.

Secondly, I was approached by a fan of Three Seconds to Legend for permission to do some fan art, to which I said, “HELL YES YOU CAN!”.  So you can check out one of the very first pieces of fan art I’ve seen for my books here at deviantArt.  This same artist also is doing work on a sci-fi mixed with pro wrestling comic book series, which I would be remiss to not shout out to, which you can see the blog for here.

General News: OMG SICK! a.k.a. I Slept A Whole Day!

Wow.

So I and everyone I knew ever got the flu over the Christmas holiday.  This is not an unusual thing.  What I didn’t realize is that it would take me weeks to fully recover.  I normally bounce back fairly quickly from illness but this time I guess it wasn’t to be.

Where am I going with this meandering mess?  Well, Sunday, when I intended to get a fresh review up and do some other site updates, my body betrayed me and said ‘First, you shall stay up for 24 hours straight, then you will enter a 24 hour coma, after which you shall arise like a phoenix from the ashes!’.  And so that’s what I did.

I now feel much better but am now a bit behind on things.  Never fear, though, there shall be a fresh Starving Review up later today and expect a constant stream of new articles and book updates this week.

Thanks for hanging in there!  Good luck and good writing!
