Had a bit of progress with the work, but before I get into that, I just wanted to tell you that I will be doing another panel over at the Fantasy and SciFi Reader’s Lounge on Facebook on Thursday, April 25th at 11am EST talking about Cyborgs and Ethics in my stories. I will also be talking about one of my favorite characters in the Sleepless Flame Universe
I have a few digital panels coming up at the Fantasy and Sci Fi Reader’s Lounge Facebook Group in preparation for OWSCyCon. I have two this month on the Diversity Panel on April 4th 10am – 11am EST and Cyborgs on April 25th 11am – Noon EST where I talk more about Sleepless Flame’s characters and environment!
Everywhere. I wish I was kidding. Currently I am playing catch up after a hectic but enjoyable road trip across the country. It was also my Birthday, so I shoved my obligations even further away from me because I am one tired potato.
Before I get started, I wanted to let you know that I am doing a Birthday Giveaway for one signed HARD COVER copy of Sleepless Flame. This version of the book is NOT AVAILABLE in stores, so it is super extra special. I will have a video up on it, but here is the link to the giveaway:
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.
