All right. Some updates now that I’ve settled in. I have gotten an iPad and a wireless keyboard, linked everything up through Google Docs, and now I’m “technologically advanced,” I suppose. With everything linked up, I can work on any device I have and the updates carry over automatically to everything else.
I have left my job as a dispatcher and have decided not to go back to another 911 center on a full-time basis. So, I’m a full-time writer and publisher now. It’s scary (if you consider sitting for hours, staring into space, wondering if the world will suddenly explode with enough pressure on the side of your skull scary). It’s exciting. It’s the weirdest feeling I’ve ever had in my life. It’s simultaneously the most terrifying and most satisfying possibility: working for myself, writing books, and seeing what people end up thinking about them.
As a result of these two developments, I hope that books will come faster than they have. Can I promise it? Of course not; the last couple of weeks have seen my writing productivity lower than they have been in a while. Lots of things happening at work and my eventual resignation (on very good terms and because of scheduling difficulties, don’t worry), and then the sitting and staring part. I’ve become an expert at the patterns of paint splashed on the walls of my living room. But fret not. Now, I have no choice other than to finish all of those works-in-progress that I’ve neglected or otherwise didn’t have much time for. Now, it would seem, I have all the time in the world.
But, I do have to ask everyone for a little help. I would encourage all of the people who have enjoyed my books to spread the word, to mention them to a friend and fellow lover of fantasy (or zombies, or science fiction), and ask them to download the free sample. Don’t spam, of course; that’s not what I want. But if you know someone who might be a good match for Laedron, Nadene, or Dylan (and, soon, Kristof, the vampire), let them know about it. 🙂 As always, thank you to all of the fans for being awesome.Share
