‘Ola, my friends!! Greetings to you from me here in slighly windy and chilly Philadelphia on this fine, beautiful Saturday! I’ve been slacking terribly for the last couple of months, which is all on me. I take full responsibility for my current laziness, and I’m going to do what I can to turn things around.
To start with, I’m giving an update about The Sons of Thor. First of all, the story is still in progress, much to my chagrin. My days are long, I’ve recently recovered from both a cold and a sinus infection, but I’m doing what I can to not let that deter me from reaching the goals I’ve set for myself. My Midwest work ethic is kicking in, and idling about is no longer becoming my style and fast. I’m ready to get out, get some work, get the writing done and find a place to live. I want to enjoy my days, even when they’re cold and even when I have my grumpy moments. I’ve got friends here who are supportive of me, who believe I’m going to make it and go very far in this city. It’s quite refreshing, and I truly love them for it. That’s why this long process of getting The Sons of Thor done is driving me nuts and why I’m grateful that I like to pick up pens and notebooks when and where I can. It’s going to be a pain to do all of that typing, but it’s also going to be worth it to get that story ready for critique and editing and for publication. I feel very good about this story. I feel good about Portal to Gaming and The King and Queen of Wands as well.
That said, I don’t know when precisely I will be publishing The Sons of Thor. It isn’t something I really want to say, but I know that I need to say it. I have a bit of a publishing model in mind for this year. I want to follow it as best I can. I do thank everyone for being patient. I know Portal to Gaming left off in a strange way. What’s going to happen next, and The Sons of Thor is definitely an answer to that question.
Second, The King and Queen of Wands is available on Smashwords. It isn’t in their premium catalog just yet – got a few hoops to jump through – but it is available for purchase at $2.99. Portal to Gaming will be following suit before too much longer.
Third, I hope to be able to at least attend Otakon in Baltimore this July. It’s probably going to take a lot of fancy footwork to get it done, but I have it slated as a goal for this year. It’s one part of promoting myself as an author and the works I’ve published.
In addition to the ebooks, I’ll be working towards publishing Portal to Gaming and The King and Queen of Wands in paperback, hard cover, and audio book formats. It’s going to be a slow process and a hectic one. I have more goals for publishing beyond what I’ve mentioned, but I’m keeping things simple for the moment. One step, one day at a time.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and weekend, my friends! I’ll be catching up with you again soon!
