Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve been writing and writing and writing, but that’s not very exciting unless I have something to show for it, is it?
That’s right, I’ve been writing as a contributor on Twin Cities Geek, a Minneapolis-based magazine that covers all manner of fandom in the area. I’ve also joined the board of Minneapolis United Soccer for the City, because I believe pretty strongly that it’s about time I gave some of my time back to the world instead of spending all of it on video games and words.
But, I’m still writing. I’m actually nearing the completion of my next story, something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and is coming along very well. The first draft will require a fair amount of revision, but I don’t expect it to be a very arduous process.
So what happens after?
Well, honestly, I’d really like to be traditionally published. I tried it once and it didn’t work out that well for me, but I feel pretty good about my chances with this story. Famous last words, I suppose, but I really do have a good feeling about it. It’s an urban fantasy set in Seattle, starring a fun cast of characters investigating some kidnappings in the area. I’m not going to say much more about it right now.
And yes. The Humming Blade has a sequel, and I’ve actually written a lot of it. It’s on the backburner right now while I continue to chase publication, but fear not: it will be finished soon.
Until then, don’t forget to grab yourself a copy of The Humming Blade, and support your local soccer team!
