Fear not, I’m still alive and kickin!
Like always, things got hectic in a hurry for me at the tail end of the year between school and working retail, never mind finding time to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. Editing and revision is just about done with Book One, Echoes of Light, and things are finishing up with the cover for it. I’ll probably have to delay the release of it to March, but I guarantee that the light is at the end of the tunnel.
Book Two, meanwhile, is finally starting to come along. I’m quite a bit behind from my original plans, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that you just need to go with the flow when it comes to your writing. A novel is finished when its finished; not according to some rigid schedule.
I’d say I’m about halfway done with it. I recently wrote what was perhaps my favorite chapter so far in the trilogy, which included a giant monster battle like something out of a Godzilla movie!
I’ve also stayed busy with my work for Sabres Hockey Central. It’s been a tough season for the team so far, but I’ve still been able to come up with what have been among my best feature editorials in all my time covering hockey. I have three new pieces listed in the “Articles” section (which needs a bit of a revamp), which can also be found below –
I’m going to try to be a lot more active with this from here on out now, especially with the impending release of Echoes of Light. I’m hoping to rework the layout and design of the blog, and definitely start posting more regularly. More excerpts from my books are on the way, and once Echoes of Light is out, I’d love to keep readers updated on the progress of the series, as well as do occasional write-ups on the world that the stories take place in.
Not much longer until then!
