I keep telling myself, every month, that I’m going to have a calm month. Then God laughs and says, “Nah.” Best laid plans and all.
In fairness, I set myself up for a lot of this, and most of it is good busy not hustling to survive busy. I also have all sorts of exciting announcements to share with you.
Where my writing is right now.
I finished two major projects in March. The rough draft of Virus is done and in hibernation until May. It’s the first Station 86 book that’s an actual, you know, full-length book. So while it’s going to be at least November before you get to see it, it’s twenty episodes long. I know some tv shows that didn’t have twenty episodes in their last season. And, you won’t have to wait as long for Virus as, I don’t know, Tamora Pierce’s book about Numair that I’ve been waiting to read since I finished Battle Magic in two days! Yes, I know she has a different book coming out in October, but it’s not the same.
Anyway, that rant aside, I also finished the second draft of Missing Stitches. I did both of those in the same day, actually. It was really a pretty bomb day for me. Now that the second draft is done and I have to let it sit, I get to do something pretty fantastic.
Woven is a long series, but the first story is done in Missing Stitches. There will be more books about that cast of characters, but they need a rest for now. So, now I’m starting on a two book story. It’s still in the same universe, and it takes place after Missing Stitches. But it’s a whole new cast of characters. (By the way, if you haven’t gotten Broken Patterns yet, here’s your link.)
This, of course, means I’m rough drafting again this month, and probably next month too. I’m digging deeper into the people of Calistar and the stories they can tell. I’m having a lot of fun, is what I’m saying.
National Poetry month
B2B stands for Brains to Book. It’s an online con, and the first con I’ve ever attended! I’ll have an Author Spotlight booth in the Science Fiction series, if you want to stop by and see me. Here’s a link, and the awesome poster they put out for us Sci-Fi writers. I love that it’s an online con, which is nicer on my budget and calendar. Oh, and I have a really cool announcement for the con.
You Can’t Trust The AI is available for Pre-Sale now and will launch on April 7th, the first day of B2B Con!
I actually rushed the launch a little bit because I wanted to be ready for the con, but it is ready to go! Just like with Seeming, there is a special, not available online episode. Do you want to know what’s going on with Godfrey’s dad on Earth and get a teaser for Virus? Then you need to get this book, my friend. Here’s a link to the pre-sale page.
Oh, and then, of course, there’s Easter, two family birthdays and a ton of gardening to do. Probably also a ton of reading on my back porch to do, too. I’m excited to see the second quarter of the year start. How about you?
