Web Absent

Hey everyone, thanks for the patience (and the steadfast twitter support) over the past 4.5 months. I’d love to say that my disappearing act was due to fighting evil in some faraway galaxy, or perhaps finally deciphering the appeal of Stephenie Meyer, but I’m afraid it was much more mundane than that. Basically, I moved from one side of Canada to the other and stayed for some time in the middle of the middle of nowhere. Once there, I had no access to the Internet (no stable access, anyway). But now that I’m in the city, I have regular access once again.

What have I been up to in my web absence? Mostly looking for cover art and editing. I finished the 3rd draft of my latest novel and hope to have the rest finished by the summer. If I didn’t have to job hunt, I’d probably finish it much sooner, but the “man” says I need to work. Pfft…stupid bills and rent and food and clothing…like those are important. Imaginary people need my attention!

As for cover art—ugh—the search continues. Now that I’m living in a larger city, I hope to be able to find someone to take an interest in Gasher Creek (plus my new book).  

As for the rest of 2012, I’ll be working on a few projects: cover art, formatting for print versions of my novels, working on a new serial novel and also working on a weekly web series. Both the serial and web series are going to be experimental—they could either sink or swim. Hopefully people will like them. Then, in 2013, I’ll be working on another historical mystery. I thought I was finished with the 19th century, but it doesn’t seem to be finished with me. I have three concepts which take place around the late 1880’s.

Onward and upward, friends!
