Yeah, I’m still here.
I’ve been doing reruns because I haven’t felt much like writing lately. Got some of that boring real life personal stuff that I’m wrestling with.
But things are happening. I have a story in an upcoming historical horror collection, Sins Of The Past. It’s scheduled for release on Halloween and I’ll be reading my story at an event at a local bookstore. The story is called “We Pass From View” and I’m really proud of it, I got a chance to use my obsession with schlock cinema and mix in some Book Of Lost Doors references.
Reading my story in front of other people, however, isn’t something that I am even remotely comfortable with. Maybe nobody will show up.
I’ve been working on Eisenstrasse. It’s turning out to be a really powerful story. My co-author and I are working really well together, pushing each other to break new ground. I think this one could really go places.
Still don’t know what the hell I’m doing with Tsarina. It’s getting to the point where if I am going to submit it as a short story to the collection for which it was originally conceived I am going to have to cut it down and find some kind of ending for it. I’ll try to do that over the weekend.
Gingerbread Wolves is on hold right now. I know what I want to do with it, I just don’t want to do it just yet. I still need a bit of a break from James & Catskinner’s world. Not too long a break–I’m confident that I’ll have it out by next summer.
But I’m still here, and I’m still working.
