November 2016: Updates
I hope everyone had a fang-tastic Halloween! I also hope you all enjoyed my short story, Fossegrimen. If you missed out on it, have no fear. It's available to read for free on Wattpad and I will also be offering it as a free download on Kindle soon.
Thank you to everyone that has read The Revelation of Dacey Sinnett! I'm so glad to hear how much you all have liked it. Getting DMs and comments about which characters are your favorites and why is incredibly fun. If you have some free time, please leave a review on either Goodreads, Amazon, or both! It helps the book reach more potential readers on those sites and I would love to get this series into as many hands, minds, and hearts as possible.
This year I'll be participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time! "Casually" participating, anyway. I'm not really trying to win any awards at the moment or compete with anyone or whatnot. (Oh dear. Now I'm starting to sound like Dr. Grady Hunter...) Mostly, I just want to see what all the fuss is about and I'm using it to track my progress while I write HUNTER.
Speaking of- HUNTER is back on track! Now that Dacey has been let loose into the world (Print version still to come.), I can get my main focus back to Ethan and Grady. I think you guys will really enjoy the twist this book will bring to the series as a whole.
What else? Oh, yes. Commissions are now CLOSED. If you follow my social media then you probably know I also do illustrations. Thank you so much to everyone that ordered from me this year! I finished up my last commission of 2016 last night and I am done. Probably for a long time. While making extra cash is nice, working on commissions is extremely time consuming. After a lot of deliberation, I've decided not to accept any more for a while with one exception: I'm still willing to collaborate with other artists so long as your idea fits my aesthetic. Have some supernatural dapper dudes you want drawn or colored? I'm there! Otherwise, I'm outties for now on the illustration game. Save for working on my own projects, of course. I've had a number of people request more illustrations of my OCs and even, potentially, some web comic style posts. So, if I'm going to devote time away from writing to drawing then I'd rather it be for projects in that vein. I'm sure you all understand. Mostly, I just want to write!!
Do we feel good and updated now? Was that a sufficient 'Welcome-To-November' blog post? No? You want more? GOOD! I HAVE SOME MORE!
I'm looking into putting some progress bar widgets onto this blog so you can keep track of my work. Still trying to decide exactly how I'd like to go about that so it's just a WIP at the moment. For now, here's an old school style write up of what's to come.
Short Story // Dark Fantasy, Historical Fiction
'Fossegrimen' - Mid. to Late November
Novel // Paranormal Fiction, Urban Fantasy, LGBT
'HUNTER: Book II of the ROAM Series'
Status: 22,500 words of approx. 50,000
Novel // Sci-Fi, Urban Fantasy, LGBT
That last one probably left you with more questions than answers. ;)
Thanks for reading!
