Uh, well . . . traveling, mostly. I’m scouting locations for the third book in the Cryptid Series and am being inspired for later book location settings.
I’ve also added editor to my résumé. I have worked on a few indie books, I’m mentoring a novice writer, and I’m trying to keep moving forward.
I Tweet. I spent a good amount of time boosting authors and have even gotten some mentorship in. I’d Facebook, but the EULA says they’d own anything I write on there. I don’t want them having more information than they need off me because of me.
So that’s about it. If you’re reading this, and you have a question, then by all means ask it. I’d love to talk with you about reading, writing, editing . . . whatever.
Well, I am still working on Man and Brother, which does not appear to be coming out this year. I’d like to explain the delay, especially since I’ve been working on it over the past year and have just not had it come together as quickly as the previous book.
I have a real author interview lined up, one which I must work on over the weekend. Oh, real interviews are hard: What if I say the exact wrong thing to make people hate me? I think that might be worse than people ignoring me. Well, worse to my psyche. I have no idea what generating negative publicity will do for the books that I’ve published.
Wow, November is waning fast. I’m a bit overwhelmed by what transpired since November 2013. The Dome Trilogy is done; I even put up excerpts on the web page. NaNoWriMo 2014 is nearly over; I somehow wrote an entire book during that time. Thanksgiving Day is done; my failed homemade fan-tan rolls were replaced by gorgeous homemade French rolls last-minute. Black Friday has come and gone; I took a hike instead of participated in the free-for-all consumer frenzy.
I’m worn out mentally and physically and emotionally (and possibly spiritually), yet I want to pick up The Cryptid Series and return to work on it.
