Howdy, folks! Been a little while. How’s the weather over there? Temperate? Cold? Hot? It’s got to be one of them, right?
This year has been an interesting one. In April, my partner took a job as a traveling nurse, so we’ve been on the road for the last few months. I sent my third book off to a few agents and publishers. I became more involved with the HWA, first by going to the fantastic convention in Vegas, then by volunteering to help found and contribute to their YouTube channel. I’ve written two more books this year in addition to the three I already had waiting in the wings.
All in all, despite my silence, I’ve been keeping myself busy.
That said, most of that busy hasn’t translated into things I can take to people who enjoy reading my work, and for that, I’m sorry. The way things are shaping up, it doesn’t look as though I’ll be releasing a book this year. I have several I could, but none of them are quiet cooked yet. I don’t want to rush the process for the sake of having a slightly larger library. It’s not as though I have fans clamoring for my latest work, but I feel guilty about it regardless. There are a few of you who’ve reached out and asked. Rest assured, it’s coming.
In fact, my intent is to release two books next year. As it stands, I want to spend the rest of this year writing short fiction and putting the final touches on the ever growing pile of novels I have. A lot of this work on the back end of this year will leave me a little more breathing room to have something for you come 2017. As it turns out, selling books is about as much work as writing them, and it isn’t nearly as much fun. (But you didn’t hear that from me)
I’ll probably release a few short stories on the website so you don’t forget I’m here ticking away at the keyboard until the wee hours of the morning, but it won’t be until November or October. Until then, there is some good news. I recently released All That Remains on NetGalley. It’s open to anyone who wants a copy until March. If you or any of your friends haven’t done so, now’s the time to give it a read.
I’ll talk to you again soon, folks. Until then, thanks for taking the time to visit.
