Well, it happened. Things got int he way of me reaching my goal this week. It’s been a bit stressful at work, so I took a couple of easy nights.
I still got a decent bit done on the revising front, though, so I’m happy about that. Luckily, I have a chance to bounce back. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: The Inevitable Lull
I found a cover designer! After sifting through over 50 applications via Upwork, I’ve hired a cover designer I’m really excited about. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: The Cover is Coming!
I am still adjusting to the fact that I do not have to be churning out sections and chapters every free moment that I have. My book is not ready for publication.
However, with the second draft complete and waiting to be edited by someone far more objective than me, I now have time to focus on all of the other aspects of publication. Continue reading So, I’ve Written A Book… Now What?

Happy Happy Hour!
I essentially have two chapters left to write in the beta manuscript of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: At the Conclusion
Life has been busy since we bought our house. Most of my weekends and spare evenings have been spent sanding, painting, talking with repair pros, or demolishing moldy cabinets in the cellar.
