Fairly well, despite it all.
“Space B!tch” is with the final editor. I have a cover artist. We’re looking at a September-ish release for 2014.
I have submitted a few short stories.
I have been promoting “Trolley,” here and there, like at RavenCon and Balticon, with a brisk sales increase. Oddly enough, sales of my old “Punk Walrus Saga” book have been doing well as well, despite being out of print.
I’ll be hosting the Cosplay at Anime Mid Atlantic June 13-15, then taking a break in July for Camp NaNoWriMo. Then I’ll be back at Otakon, Intervention, and TCEP in August.
Boy, I sure can spell creatively… yeesh… but I progressed really nicely for one weekend. I won’t be able to do much next weekend, as I have Roller Derby bout recaps to do and then mother’s day. I don’t have a mother, but my wife is one, so we’re taking her out. The next weekend I will I hope to have the first alpha pass done by the first week of June.
Okay, I don’t want to be all arrogant and stuff, but I am really proud of some of what I wrote. Right now, it’s not the best book; it needs some work, but man… there are some parts I laughed out loud at. Some I cried a little. And some will never see the light of day like a hair clog in a shower drain.
“I wrote what…? Yee…”
I have managed to get a little under halfway of the actual first alpha before I do another pass of the second alpha. Once that’s fixed, onto Beta 1 and my editors, who will attack it with rock and scissors. I hope to have all those done by the end of the summer. Then negotiations with my publisher, and then a Christmas 2013 release I hope by Thanksgiving.
I *should* have some readings for Balticon. I don’t have a schedule yet, but I’ll post one when it becomes finalized.
