July is at an end, but this last week has been interesting.
I spent part of it with Cirvel and learned more about his story. I’ve always known just enough to know that digging deeper would be painful. I wasn’t wrong.
I had to go back to Steigan — as if he doesn’t have enough issues of his own, but at least I’ve spent a lot of time with his traumas. But in going back and researching certain aspects of my story, I remember how big this story is. And it keeps growing.
I also have added two new stories to the list of those waiting to be told. The Rag Girl came to me a few weeks ago. I’m not sure why this story chose me. Probably because I always said I wouldn’t write a story like this. It came about from a piece of research I was doing for Stonecharmer and I read an interesting bit of information I had not thought about before. I knew it would come back to haunt me. There are just some things you cannot unsee. The other story that came to me is about an early developed android. I have no clue what this story is about, but it spit out nearly 800 words like it was cake on a platter to be devoured and now it’s in the hopper. I do hope something develops from these two starts, but maybe not until I have some other stories out of the way.
Bookkeeping took some of my time.
I put Let’s Make a Deal up and by the time this post publishes, it should be ready on many platforms.
Plus, the Books Gone Bad bundle has been released.
The print version of 1-800-CallLoki is coming soon — hopefully I’ll be able to get information about that out this week.
And I have finalized the cover for Dragons of Wellsdeep. I’m so excited and hope to have a cover reveal soon. Let’s hope I don’t get called off on so many adventures this week that I can get all these extra blog posts written which I’ve wanted to get done.
