I’ve been neglectful of my blogging duties the last week or so since I’ve been trying to make sure I get my writing done. So far that seems to be going well. I took a few days off, but now I’m back at it. The third book is at just about 30k words, so that makes me happy. Just 10k more and I’ll have an actual novel. I still would like to have it done by the end of the year, even if I don’t release it then. I still shake my head in disbelief at the fact that I’m writing my THIRD book. Three years ago I would have laughed at the idea of writing one, much less three.
In a couple months I will also be attending my first convention as a writer. I’m gonna be at Arisia 2013 in January for the whole weekend. I won’t be at the dealers table or anything but i will be shmoozing with the crowd and hopefully throwing the best party there. I’m tentatively calling it After the Storm the Party! If you don’t know what Arisia is and live in the Boston/new England area you can check it out here http://2013.arisia.org/ . I’ve been to quite a few of these convention in the past during my stint in a Rocky Horror Picture Show cast and they’re a lot of fun! There also tends to be a lot of people interested in the post apocalyptic kind of stuff I write in attendance so I’m hoping it will get my name out there a bit. If you’re interested tickets run around $50 for the whole weekend until December, then I think they go up a bit. Read the rest of this entry
