Yes, yes. The third and final draft is just about ready for proofreading, but then a MASSIVE POSITIVE NON-WRITING LIFE TWIST occurred. The downside of which is that C&D will be, yes, delayed again.
As soon as things stabilize it’s time to get back on track. I’m also working on another book, tentatively called The World of Wishes. I’m also returning to the Refugeverse with another book, The Shackled Servant of Lauriel.
To tide y’all over, here is a brand-new website.
See the title.
Currently, my writer’s group is reviewing the manuscript, and after that, it’s on to proofreading. After that (May, God willing), we’ll see about publication.
This month, I got to about 3/4ths of the way through the second draft of _C&D_. The bad news: due to two different Real Life™ happenings, it’s not finished. Next month!
I found a more traditional venue that might accept C&D. I hope to submit before the end of March, or at least before the end of April. Either case, there’s unfortunately more of a delay, but it shouldn’t be long. It’s happening!
Aside from steeming away at steemit, I’ve been still working on revising C&D. As well as working through emotional crises. That tends to slow things down.
Black humor aside, it looks to be released in March now, or, at worst, April. There’s more to revise than I initially thought, in addition to the various formatting, proofs, etc. along the way. Don’t worry, though, I’m far from unhopeful I’ll get it out.
I hadn’t linked to this before, because I was unsure how it was going to work out. I’ve been writing a significant number of articles for Steemit, which you can all read by clicking on this helpful hyperlink.
Steemit is one of those new-fangled crypto-platform-world-chains. It’s kinda like blogging, except you get paid. Maybe. I’ve had mixed success, but sometimes that success is big. And in any case, there’s no point trying to only write if you get paid. It doesn’t work that way.
Self-apologetics aside, I’m rambling onto an article I just wrote. If you’ve ever wondered why my posts are sometimes a little bizarre, or I go for long silences, this is why.
I am bipolar.
This update was meant to be posted yesterday, but by the time I thought to write/post it, it was too late. 😦
It’s looking like March for release. I’m still working through revisions, for which I’ve set a deadline of “the end of February.” The actual release may take some time after that–I’m considering launching the ebook first, but we’ll see.
