Holiday Prep

As we head into my, literal, favorite holiday, I find myself in a very interesting place.


I still have queries out, I have a manuscript being reviewed.I'm working on my next project, which is always fun. I know this book is likely to be more appealing than the one currently out for consideration, but I do love them both.


I'll turn 37 in two short weeks. Honestly, I thought I'd feel older by now. I don't think I feel much differently than I did at 27. Well, mentally. Physically, my body keeps sending messages that read like a vehicle's warning lights.


Its amazing what one email can change. Last week, I was ready to throw in the towel traditional publishing. Maybe I should just self-publish. Who knows? I was leaning in that direction when that request hit my inbox.


I'm not hanging all of my hopes and dreams on the agent currently reading my work (though I have a good feeling about it). I am cautiously optimistic. Maybe the query letter tickled her. Maybe GUARDIAN is what she's been looking for. Maybe, maybe, maybe.


For now, I'm going to continue working on Dark Ember and enjoy my holiday.


I'll likely post a bit more Dark Ember this week, just because I like it so much.


After the Packers game tonight, of course.


GO PACK GO

Into the Web

So, I am going to actually activate the Patreon account I made like 3 years ago and put up a couple of my novels as web serials, with updates weekly. I intend to have a couple of tiers, one of which m
