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.
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.
I have received the finished cover from Streetlight Graphics today. Here it is!
Chances are the book won’t be available by January, as there’s still some revisions to do. February, or more realistically March, is more likely. But stay tuned!
I am submitting a story (or, arguably, eight) to Sci Phi Journal, a magazine of thoughtful science fiction. The story has actually been finished for some time, and it is only now that I have gotten the mental and emotional energy to continue with it. (Such is Bipolar II).
The title? A Fractal of Eight Tragedies in Fifteen Parts.
Currently The City and the Dungeon is undergoing a number of small revisions, due to the helpful advice of my writer’s group. There will be, God willing, more news either later this month or in December.
I have a number of other, small projects. One may also appear in about the same period (God willing) and the others… We’ll see. One story in my mind may be too long to be a short story (or even a novella?)
