GLOOM AND DOOM IN SEATTLE? NOT TODAY

MukilteoLighthouseThe Seattle area may have a reputation for winters filled with nothing but endless rain, grey skies, and coffee, but I can tell you that’s not always the case (well, the coffee thing kinda is. I don’t know what constitutes the maximum level of caffeine one can safely consume per day, but I’m fairly certain I exceed it on a regular basis). This week has been filled with quite a few beautiful days that truly make me appreciate living in the Pacific Northwest. But on my ferry ride to work this week, as I sat there enjoying the sunny sky and shimmering blue water, the disturbing thought occurred to me that I’ve been failing miserably at my New Year’s resolution of updating my blog on a regular basis this year. I couldn’t have that, so I figured I’d better post an update today and let everyone know that I’m still alive and what I’ve been up to lately.

I’ve finished two new short stories and submitted them both to publishers. My newest Shadow’s Bane story has also been sent in, so hopefully I’ll get word on that one soon as well. I’ve been kicking around the idea of expanding that series into a full-length novel if I ever get the time, but I have too many other projects going on right now to be able to do it. Now, with my short story progress made, I’ve turned my attention back to finishing the novel I’m currently working on. I’ve made some really good progress on it, worked out most of the details for the next act, and I plan on putting all my free time into getting it finished. Then it’ll be on to the next one…

Well, that’s all to report at the moment. Stay tuned for more (hopefully sooner this time!).
