Yes, I’ve been my usual absent-to-the-blog author. I can’t say that I’ve got excuses as much as good reasons.
In late December into early January, Rachel and I went to London for vacation, and it was fantastic. We made some amazing memories and met up with C.C. Adams, another (local) horror author, and closely listened to his wise culinary advice.
All I can say is this: don’t listen to people when they tell you the food scene in London is crap. Clearly they haven’t been there in a decade or more. You can, and will, eat like a gourmet if you choose your restaurants and markets carefully.
March got here, and so did Rachel’s first book “The Most Special Chosen”, published by Burning Willow Press. Check out her blog. Learn about her novel, the prequel, and her passion for superb writing instruments.
Later in March, we got married. (I’m going to leave it at that, otherwise I’ll get all squishy and giddy.)
I wrapped up the third book in the series I’ve been working on in April, and took a break to focus more on the cartoons that I’ve been posting on Instagram. If you drop by that account, you’ll notice that Rachel’s not the only one with a passion for fountain pens.
About a month ago, I began writing the fourth book in the current project, but a bit more slowly than before. I’ve not set aside the cartoons in the least, but I’ve slowed down in order to (try) to make time to write more often.
Last month was also eventful, in that the cover reveal for the latest “Cross Roads in the Dark” anthology was released. One of my stories is included in this installment, which makes me very proud. Proceeds from “Cross Roads in the Dark: Ghosts” are going towards suicide prevention, an issue close to my heart.
Check out this gorgeous cover, and the pertinent info.

See? A lot has been happening!
Today, I took another interesting step forward by sending the first manuscript in the new series, titled “Bleeding the Little Lambs” to one of the best indie editors in the business. I promise to make status updates as things progress, and I hope to have the book on sale after the first of the year.
This is my second foray into self-publishing, but I’ve every reason to believe it will go better than the last one.
Alright, I’m off to write a little more and then take care of some often ignored house cleaning. Take care of yourselves, and keep supporting small press and indie authors.
