Just a quick note to let folks know where I am and how things are going:
This has been a hard month! There were a slew of family problems, a 12 day migraine episode, and panic attacks. But I’m still kicking ass.
The website redesign is going well. It looks and feels more like the site I’ve been wanting. I was pretty terrified about doing it because I haven’t designed a website since college. I’ve got some more work to do, so the official relaunch will be in June.
I’m deep in the middle of work on the Synn stories and need to thank Hannah for her help with that. I made the right decision by not publishing this year. It’s going well now but was tough for a while.
My foray into #MagicInNorthAmerica was extremely stressful. There were a lot of unapproved comments from mean people. I felt it was important to engage the controversy, but I’m flat tired of feeling like I’m screaming into a
storm about social justice. No more for a while. (I keep saying that and then shit happens to piss me off…) Thanks go to The Mad Grad Student for the help on those threads.
I’m scheming a space opera with a teen protagonist, a short story, and a new non-fiction book. I don’t know if I can safely classify the teen story as “YA;” it’s pretty explicit and I don’t plan to pare it down for sales. Details to follow.
