Dear readers, it’s been a long, long time since my last update. Life has kept matters pretty busy here. So let me start by saying, new year, new face on the website. Feel free to take a look around. It is currently a work in progress. Later this year, I intend to add a portion for you amazing readers called “Explore Maeseloria.” It should be a fun venture full of character profiles and excerpts from the series. Maybe also a few behind the scenes snippets. We’ll see what the year brings.
With that being said, most of you that follow this blog know I am knee deep in revisions for Fate’s Divide. I am ahead of schedule on revisions. This does not mean an early release date but this story is coming together nicely. Also, in tandem with these revisions, I am working on a project called “attic journaling”. A writer friend of mine introduced me to it and I, in turn, introduced it to the ladies at Illuminate writing. This is a writer’s group I’m involved with. This month has been interesting. The attic journaling has been a fun way to open creative doors and put together ideas for content down the road. These ideas range from future novellas after the current Maeseloria series winds down to stuff for the next series after. I’m enjoying a fun, fifteen minute brain break from the daily humdrum to get it done. If you’re interested in attic journalling, let me know. I’ll fill you in on it. A shout out to my friend Jamie for introducing me to the idea. 🙂
Next on the to-do of announcements. I am planning a major charity event in late April. This event is being hosted in tandem with Independent Book Store Day. The event is to help raise funds for a charity I’ve only recently discovered existed. The charity is called Austin’s Book Club. You can read more about their mission and message here. The charity is local but the work they do is amazing. If you can donate, please do. To help raise money for this charity, a group of local authors and I will be at Gathering Volumes raffling off books, baskets of goodies and other assorted prizes. The event date is April 27, 2018, 10-4. If you’re local to the Ohio/Michigan area, drop by. It’s a great event for a good cause. Here’s some more info for those interested:
So, that’s life in a nutshell as of late. Look for a late fall release of Fate’s Divide. More details will be coming about online release parties, signings and other goodies. Drop me a comment, an email, I’d love to hear from you.
