Hey everyone! I haven’t posted here in a while, but I’m busier than ever! Here’s what I’ve been up to:
I’ve been making some minor pre-edit adjustments to the novel I finished in April, which is tentatively titled The Foreland. I think these are pretty much finished, and now I’m going to let the manuscript sit for a few more weeks before I really get down to editing.
I’ve also been proofreading a manuscript by my good friend Seth Thomas. He printed a copy of it for me to write and draw all over, and I’ve been trying to do so every night.
I just finished Mile 81, a novella by Stephen King. You can find my review of it on Goodreads. I’m still debating what to read next, but City of Illusions by Ursula K. Le Guin is pretty high up on my list.
I’ve been taken on as a staff writer for a Nintendo fan website, Nintendocon. Be sure to follow it for the latest news, reviews, and analysis.
Laura, the wonderful artist who did the cover for After the Bite, has been kind enough to draft up a new version. This one has much better title text, is easier to see, and is (hopefully) much better-looking in print (I’ll know for sure as soon as my copies arrive).
The people behind /r/shutupandwrite’s Critiquecast have been kind enough to critique my microfiction piece “The Reaper Runs Faster”. If you don’t know what Critiquecast is, it’s a podcast in which a group of amateur writers critiques other amateur writers, with hilarious and probably not-safe-for-work results. It’s a lot of fun, and you should check the podcast out.
As always, I’m working to try to get short stories and novels published traditionally. I’ll be a lot more specific about this if and when I have anything specific to announce.
That’s the gist of what I’ve been up to. What about you?
