I feel like it’s been awhile since I did a life update. I usually just try to fit stuff like this into my normal posts, or just post a brain dump on Mondays. But I had so much stuff I wanted to talk about with you this month, and so much going on this month that I wanted to get you guys updated right away. Not only because I’m so excited about everything going on this month, but because some of it involves awesome goodies for you!
It amazes me that the shortest month of the year is packed with the biggest projects for me. You’d think it would be a longer month. Of course, it could be because I have be obsessed with getting shit done in January.
To start with, here’s what I’m working on this month.
If you’ve gotten your hands on Broken Patterns and loved it, you’ll be thrilled to know that I’m making huge progress on Missing Stitches. That’s book three, if you’re wondering. I probably won’t finish the second draft until next month, but progress is being made.
I’m starting on the rough draft of Station 86, Book Three. Actually, by the time you read this I might be working on it right now. If you’re super curious, I’ll probably post on Twitter and Facebook when I start.
But before I do that…
I am going to have to write around some pretty big things, though. This Friday, the third, I am doing my very first book signing! If you’re local, come meet me at Cumming Coffee Shop on Main Street from 3:30 to 5:00. If you can’t come in person, please feel free to send me love on social media.
This reading is so important to me. Not only because it’s my first one ever, but because it’s a childhood dream coming to life. I used to sit in that shop, scribbling stories into composition notebooks and dreaming about being a famous writer who did books signings.
If you are local but can’t make the Cummings signing, don’t fear. I’m scheduling signings at Book Nook, Saxonburg Coffee and the local library. For dates, keep your eyes on my Facebook page. They’ll probably show up there before anywhere else.
I’m involved in the Solstice Blog Tour!
I’m sure you noticed this, because we’re a couple weeks in already. But some of the other Solstice authors and I are doing a blog tour. I was the blogger of week one, if you saw me around. We’ll be keeping this rolling all month.
You already know about this one, but in case you forgot…
You Can’t Trust The AI starts on Wednesday, February 15th!
Just like with Seeming, I’ll post an episode a week, every week. There will be a total of eight episodes, running until April. If you didn’t get a chance to read Seeming while it was live, never fear. You can get it on Amazon.
Finally, a special gift for you.
You should all know by now that I do have a free collection of short stories available for you. It’s called Days and Other Stories, and you can get it for free by clicking right here.
But I think it was lonely.
So, I’m going to be launching a new collection on February 9th! It’s a whole horror collection, which I’ve never done before. It’s called Spook. Stay tuned on launch day for links to get your totally free copy.
So that’s my super crazy, super exciting February! What are you doing this month that you’re excited about?
