Hello there, Blog and Happy New Year! This year has a lot in store for it and my head is already swimming...
First off, I need to announce that the Slimming is going very well. Since April of 2011, I have lost 20 pounds. It has been a long, sometimes difficult process, but I've got faith in myself that I can get down to my goal weight. This is the ultimate birthday present to myself since nobody, and I mean nobody, can do this for me. It feels very good.
Next, I need to say a huge thanks to everyone that has bought a copy of Haiku Horror Stories. I'm humbled beyond words. To celebrate, at the end of the month I will be giving away a free copy on my Facebook page. By the way, I have an official page on Facebook so go ahead and like it if you would.
My Sketchbook Project got mailed in a smidge late, so I hope it makes it into the collection and they digitize it. When it is available, I'll share the link here. In the meantime, I am putting my own scanned copy into the proper format for Kindle and soon after, Nook. It will be free-free-free! Mermaids, haikus, and silly drawings by little old me...all for you and all for free.
I've resubmitted The Witches in the Walls to a publisher and I'm really hoping they like my twist ending enough to publish it in their magazine. I've been living and breathing these characters for so long that they feel like my own family. Not that I would do to my own family what happens to them...never.
If that isn't enough, I'm still plodding along with the novel and working on collecting a dozen or so of my "I don't think there's a market for this type of story" stories and plopping them into a self-published work. I already have the cover art figured out (thanks to one of my cats) and have two possible titles to choose from.
Right, enough talk, it is time for action! May 2013 be an incredible adventure!!!
