Moar Progress

For the fans of my Steampunk serial, The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe: episode 9 is edited, and the cover art is in process. Look for it on Kindle sometime this weekend or early next week.

One of my goals is to have the first 12 episodes out and a hard copy full season omnibus available by the time LibertyCon rolls around.

For those of you eagerly awaiting the next Waves of Darkness title, Hunting the Dragon: I typed up chapters 3, 4, and 5 on my phone and have uploaded them to my desktop. Going to start chapter 6 today.

I am considering starting a Patreon page. I need to talk to others I know who’ve had them for a few years to find out what effect it could have on my taxes first. I was one of the ones who still managed to get one this year. I’d like to keep it that way.

I saw Lydia Sherrer is still on the list of attending authors for LibertyCon. A few, including the original Literary GoH for this year, Patricia Briggs, have had to cancel since the convention was forced to change dates and venues. I hope Lydia is still able to attend. I have book shopping to do and also look forward to visiting with her. Perhaps she’ll even bring her little Dread Pirate in Training along.

Hmm, since Liberty doesn’t have a replacement for Ms. Briggs yet, maybe I’ll hint to Brandy and Rich to see if Sherrilyn Kenyon is available. Haven’t had a chance to see her in person since a book signing she did in Orlando back in 2005 or 2006. I wasn’t able to attend the last Chattacon she was a guest at back in 2010.

Diving Into the TBR Pile

If you are a serious book lover, you have a TBR (To Be Read) pile or piles. Some may even be electronic. While I know my own is not as impressive as others, it is slowly engulfing the floor surrounding my bookshelf and getting hard to keep segregated from my Already Read stacks.

A couple of weeks before ConNooga, my writing flow wasn’t. I took that as a cue to dive into my TBR pile. I came up with one that’s been in the pile for a few years (though not as long as some others); Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

15767586

I finished it two days before the con. It is NOT a small book, but it is well worth the time it took to read and the effort it took to lug around. (You could bash someone’s brains in with this book. The only book I’ve seen that was larger and heavier than Styxx or it’s predecessor, Acheron – other than some family Bibles – is the Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, which weighs around 20 pounds or more.)

Serendipitously, I came across a song on my drive to the convention which was co-written by Billy Joel and Cyndi Lauper that fit some of the themes from these companion books Sherri graced us with. Even though the song was written/released in 1986, I’d never heard it before. (Let’s hear it for Sirius!)

 

Enjoy!
