It had been my wildest dream to play with Precious Metal Clay (aka PMC), and had refrained because the material is so damned expensive and I had always thought it took wayyyyy too many supplies to make it plausible.
HOWEVER, I came to the realization that I own a Brulee torch, the fire demon collecting dust on the top of my fridge. And Copper Clay as opposed to Silver is considerably cheaper (In addition, you can make the shit yourself.)
This week there is not going to be too much progress as I am trying to recombobulate myself into a regular writing schedule. It has taken me so long to keep the fires under control while maintaining every project I am involved in (but not my sanity, that shit left to the wind decades ago.)
FACK what a year this has been. But I am happy to announce that the chaos that has been gnawing at my backside since last Fall has finally subsided, and I am able to go back to our normal scheduled programming.
Which means that the sequel to Sleepless Flame is back in progress! I will be using this blog as an accountability tracker and hopefully take you all along for the ride as I post word counts, snippets, and teasers for the next chapter, titled Mourning Ember.
Before all this nonsense afflicted me, I was intending on releasing in July to catch the Summer Reads wave, but I am pretty pessimistic about that outcome. I do not want a repeat of the crap I had to deal with from the first book, so I am shooting for October for a more relaxed experience. But who the hell knows?
This blog won’t be all focused on the book. I have exciting things incoming this year, from new projects to shows and even more writing adventures that have nothing to do with the series. Some short fiction as well!
So sit back, enjoy the ride, and grab a snack or two as we head forth into whatever bullshit my brains decide to fling at the internet.
I have a table at the Nor’Geekster in the Portland Maine Mall where I will be peddling my jewelry and books! Stop by and say hello and do a bit of holiday shopping with a TON of geeky crafters! More information on the event can be found at the official Facebook page.
Because I already have way too many irons in the fire, I figured now would be the most appropriate time to add another one to the forge.
From last week’s post, you know that I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with enamel pins. And because of this I have decided to embark on my own adventure of creating them. Thus the Curiosity Kitten was evoked from the depths of my squishiest brainmeats:
My SO had surprised me with a selection of clearance fabrics from the spooky section of a famous discount department store, and because I will take any excuse to avoid actual work, I decided to get DIY all over my pin board.

Quick announcement before I get into spooky festivities, I will be doing a livestream Mukbang Sunday, October 14th at 7PM EST where I will be unboxing a Tokyo Treat premium box and tasting all the goodies inside. There may be a Japan Crate as well, but I had ordered it a few weeks ago and it has not shown up at my door yet. I will probably do another video on that as well.
Here is the fantastically overdramatic trailer for the livestream:
Once in a purple moon, Odin manages to shed the layers of dust from their carapace and crawl into the daylight. This time, I ventured into the heart of Boston to see a show from one of my eccentric music tastes.
