Keeping Busy During Quarantine

Those straw-looking weed things? Yeah, those are tumble weeds. My apologies for it being so long since the last post. I promise to keep things more active on a weekly basis here.

For now, here are a few updates of some things I have in the works.

My NaNo draft was completed. Will I do NaNo again? probably not. But November is a bit far off, so who knows what will happen in 2020. The novella for that project did finish final edits in March, and “Once More, With Clarity” was submitted to a publisher.

My fantasy novel project, currently titled Chondrial wrapped up the rough draft stages this week. Hoping between now and the end of May while the country is still in lockdown to have that draft typed in so I can start sending out to beta readers soon. (I handwrite all my rough drafts)

I’ve started an urban fantasy book outline for a vampire hunter series, of which the first book is set in Vegas–tentatively called the Apollo Grant project for now until I get more than the first chapter composed and figure out a real book title.

Other projects in the pipeline include another short story submission for Writers of the Future v37 Q3 (still waiting on results for Q1, but judging I know has been on hold because of everything with COVID-19), a rewrite on a young adult fantasy series tentatively titled “Crystal and Ash”, and interactive all-ages story about a character called Frederick the Dinosaur.

Pay attention to that last project in the pipeline everyone. More details will be coming soon about how the interactive story project will work.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, and please look forward to the next update. A lot of great things are happening in 2020!
