Things are pretty hectic for me, and they look to stay that way for the foreseeable future. It’s both awesome and awful.
A quick summation of the last few months:
– In the Days launched on Amazon near the end of May. It has performed about as well as could be expected considering it’s my first work.
– I attended my very first Comic Con in Anaheim, and had a blast. Turns out I’m pretty darn great at selling comic books, especially if they’re the high quality books Rothic and Co produce.
– Clients have come and gone, and the freelance writing work has been a bit unstable. That is the way of things, but it’s always very unnerving for me. I prefer to have a much more reliable, predictable income, as I need my routines.
It has been a busy year so far, and things are only going to get busier.
Here’s what the next few months are going to look like for me:
The Hunter: Blade of the Destroyer is the new work in progress, and I’m working on it as quickly as I can. However, I’m going to go about this book a bit differently, including not rushing to finish it. If it doesn’t come out for a few more months, that’s just my way of doing my best to ensure that it is AWESOME when it finally does come out.
For my comics, the future is looking pretty bright. I hope to attend San Diego Comic Con with the Rothic crew, and I have officially been contracted as a writer. Here’s hoping we can get something published before the end of the year!
I have also been contacted by a number of other people interested in comic book/video scripts. No spoilers, but I will definitely keep you updated as things come out.
I’m going to invest more time into reaching out and finding new clients for my freelance writing services. I’d love to spend all of my time writing fiction, but it doesn’t quite pay the bills yet. As soon as it does, I’ll be able to make the transition properly, but for now I’m stuck with the ol’ schnoz on the grindstone.
All this to say, I’m going to fight to keep posting regularly to the blog, social media, and sending emails to friends and family. However, if I’m incommunicado, my sincerest apologies. It’s just tough to fit everything into 16-hour days.
