It’s Done!

The next book in the Go Away Girls series is done and ready for purchase! This is a steampunk story about a new drug loose in the city sold by dealers willing to kill to keep their business going. This time there isn’t any sex in it so it’s available on more platforms but I hope you all still enjoy it.

Writing Update & Why I Went Dark For A Bit

I hope I didn’t worry anyone by not posting after my last update but I wanted to say something good in all the mess that’s going on. While I’ve been adjusting to working from home, I finished a rough draft of the next Go Away Girls book; “Flight.”

I’m working on editing it in between working from home and writing up more reviews so I don’t have an official release date. If you’re interested in this universe, check out the first book “The Mirror.”

As for a more personal update, we’re all still home, going out as little as possible, and blessedly still healthy. I am technically still employed but no longer getting the overtime I depend on to pay the mortgage. I count my blessings because there are people out there in way worse positions, but I will ask my readers to share and review my books and please, stay safe, stay clean, and stay home.

Overdue 2020 goals

Last year I did pretty well on my yearly goals but this year I’m gonna scale it down a bit. I don’t want to get overwhelmed:

  1. Draw more. I actually really miss this.
  2. Treat my writing and blog more like a business. I’d like to be publishing more often.
  3. Clean off my Kindle, Nook, iPad, AND read the ARCs I have piled up.
  4. More needlework.

That’s about it! I’ve gotten a pretty good running habit, my doctor says I’m very healthy so, my main goals now are the success of my writing and clearing out. Let’s see how this year goes!

September Writing Update

As you can see by the flood of posts recently, I am making a real effort to not only post every day but clear off my Kindle and clear out the books piled up in my room. This means expect a ton of reviews of stuff that’s all over the map.

This doesn’t mean I’m not writing. I haven’t been meeting my 5 page a day goals mainly because I haven’t outlined Emma’s book at all and I’m just sorta flowing with it. This means some days I write 4-5 pages and some days I write 4-5 words.

Unfortunately, this means I have no idea when my next book will come out. But I will be more forthcoming with updates in the future.

Overdue Writing/Reading Update

Over the last few months, I’ve been slowly working on Emma’s book in the First Brood series and working on the next episode of Fruit of the Dead. I’m a little annoyed with how slow it’s going but progress is being made.

The main reason why things are slow going is I have been working very hard on catching up with all the ARC books I have around. So, expect more reviews this month as I try to clear off my ereaders and get rid of all those books I got from BookExpo and Book Con. I’m starting to trip over those and that’s not good at all.

Overdue March Writing Update

Being home with a sick kid and all has left me with some time on my hands. So, I’ve been working pretty heavily on Emma’s book the last couple of days. I will likely have a rough draft of that ready before the summer and I’ll be posting little snippets over on my Patreon! 😀

I also have a bunch of reviews headed for the blog soon so look forward to those.

This is mostly just to remind my followers that I’m still alive and working on things. More upcoming later this week!

Runner 5 down! Sorta…

Other than that shot being super awkward… I finally had that lipoma removed from my shoulder and the doctor was very damn clear that there will be no running for at least 2 weeks.

I won’t go into super detail about how fucking strange it is to have someone digging out a fat glob from your flesh but you don’t feel it but I did ask about my desk bike and as long as I don’t over do it, the bike should be fine.

I also have this nifty tiny peddler under my work desk.

One good side effect is I will have more time to write and do needlework. I’m off running for at least 2 weeks and I have no desire to completely lose the progress I’ve made. But, as long as I don’t go flailing my arms around, I should be able to churn out more content and sale items.

No doing this, basically.

I’ll be careful and heal up properly. I did sign up for the Zombies Run! Spring virtual race but I should be healed up by then!

Too bad I didn’t get to keep my lipoma. I would have kept it in formaldehyde and named it Gregori…

Trying out Voracious Readers

In my ever going quest to get more readers and reviews, I’ve listed my first book in the First Brood series on Voracious Readers. If you’ve found your way here via them welcome and I hope you enjoy the book!

I’ve found some interesting books on there (which I will be reviewing) so I figured I’d offer my stuff on there, too.

Writing Update: 500 Words a Day Challenge

You could have seen this post earlier on my Patreon.

Since I’m signed up for his newsletter, I went ahead and opted into Jeff Goins’ 500 Words Challenge. And so far, I’m doing pretty good! I think the only day I’ve missed was January first since I signed up for the challenge on the second.

I have been focusing on book 4 in the First Brood series since that’s the one I want to finish the most. Don’t worry. I’m still putting around with my other projects but First Brood 4 is what’s really been on my mind.

I know on the blog it says blogging counts but I haven’t been counting it because it’s the stories that will hopefully be providing me with the income I desperately need. Since I’ve built the momentum, I hope I can complete this challenge!
