Happy to announce that the second draft of my first ever anthology, A Looking In View, is coming along better than I expected.
Publishing date is May 3rd, so I better get my ass in gear if I want it to be ready to roll for pre-sale on Amazon.
I still have no editor, so again, the painstaking job of finding every error and ironing out the stories the best I can will be done solely by me. I'm not bitching. This is my dream. It's my density...I mean...my destiny, as George McFly would say. Luckily, I have a sharp beta reader on my side.
Meanwhile, I'm putting together a blurb for the back cover so the wonderful and always amazing Michelle Arzu can create incredible artwork for the book.
Between that, working full time, and being a father and a husband, my time will be limited. I still have to find time to set up a huge sale for Autumn Dark, my latest novel. And it will all be worth it.
One story polished, twelve more to go.
Listening to: Classic Rock playlist on Spotify. I only listen to classical music while I write first drafts. It is only until I'm rewriting when I can listen to music with lyrics. Right now Cream is playing. Before that, Deep Purple.
Watching: Oh my God have you seen Split? I loved it. It was the first time I ever clapped and gasped out loud after a movie. I was also the only one doing so. Many people find the movie offensive to people with psychology disorders. I can respect that. I can also respect that it's also only a movie. I'm happy to see M. Night getting back into the swing of things.
Reading: I just finished a great crime thriller by author George Stratford called A Fine Line. I will be starting Chills by Mary SanGiovanni tonight and I couldn't be happier about it. I've been looking forward to reading her for quite some time.
Take care, dream big, and never quit.
