Change and Stuff
I don't like change. I'm a creature of habit and I like things to be familiar. Nu-Blogger makes me a little crazy, as does Firefox 12. Plus, when things update there are inevitably bugs and other issues to be fixed. No thank you. Anywho, that baby vent about change ties into why I've been so quiet on the blog lately. My old boss at my day job transferred to another store. So I got a temporary promotion to a full-time position--so temporary that it's been going on for the last five weeks, and there is no actual end in sight. Working full-time again has, in a way, been a godsend right now, with things so uncertain in the writing side of my life. But it's also been a drain on my time and energy, so my blog has been suffering. So has my social media time. And for all of that, I apologize. The good news is that I've finished a first draft of TEMPEST (MetaWars #3). I really had fun writing this book. It's from the POV of Ethan "Tempest" Swift, and he's one of my very favorite characters from the MetaWars series. You'll learn a few new things about him in CHANGELING (June 26) that I hope pique your interest in his story. TEMPEST and Metawars #4 will both be part of the newly revamped Pocket Star imprint, which is digital first content. Once I have release information beyond "in 2013" I'll let you know. Along the lines of other new things, the "Sekrit Project" is now on submission. Keep your fingers crossed for good things. This project is a closed trilogy, and it's something I'm very excited about. Oh yeah....GO SEE THE AVENGERS!!!! It was all kinds of awesome.
