It’s been quite a while. As I’ve previously hinted, my life remains pretty hectic since I’m pulling 50-60 hour work weeks. One of my biggest regrets of 2022 was not achieving any of my writing goals and really not cobbling together a functional writing (and marketing) schedule. But when you’re working two jobs, you just want to collapse and not think at the end of the day.
I’m still plugging away at “Legacy,” Mina’s story. And man! It has been fun to slip into her POV. She’s definitely a different lens than Katya, who is so serious and more grounded. Currently, Mina’s navigating her way through military life, a type of life she has always orbited around, but now she’s fully enmeshed in it. Given Mina’s current age (in addition to some of the other cast members), “Legacy” has more of a young adult feel about it, and there just might be some romance, which is rare for me as an author. It also establishes the lay of the land following the events of “Descent.” Let’s just say, it’s not all smooth sailing on Mramor. Or really anywhere.
Once complete, I plan on testing the waters of Kindle Vella. Have you used Kindle Vella as a writer or a reader? Share your experiences with me! If all goes well, I might also release the Oneiroi novel on Kindle Vella. Eventually, I will release both as physical books, but this will save me from having to purchase more ISBNs for a while. Those aren’t cheap.
“Once Removed” is started and fully plotted. I wish I had more time to work on it, as I can see it being one of my favorites. There are several scenes that I’m eager to write and to see readers’ responses to.
Hall Of Heroes Comic Con 2023
I will have a booth at the Hall of Heroes Comic Con in Elkhart, IN. The convention runs from 10-6 p.m. Saturday, March 4, and from 10-5 p.m. Sunday, March 5, at the Northern Indiana Event Center, 21565 Executive Pkwy, Elkhart, IN 46514. I’ll be at booth A24 (Far-Flung Press) in Artist Alley. Come, say hi! I’ll have copies of “Heritage Lost” and “Descent” available for purchase and possibly galaxies-in-a-bottle (or potion) necklaces.
It looks promising that author Kylie Betzner will join me once again at the booth. Kylie is known for her “The Six—Er—Seven Kingdoms” series, which is a comedic fantasy parody series. She also has an Arthurian parody book, too, which I highly recommend. I just adore Pig and Kay.
We will probably host another giveaway. You’ll find the details at our booth!
Until next time, cheers!
