I am not normally a reflective or sentimental person but ARSH 2019 has been quite the year. Foes and Rivals went live 366 days ago, so I can call that 2019-ish. After losing over two months when my copyeditor of five years ghosted me, Worlds Without End came out in October. “Crosses and Doublecrosses” has been ready since just after Thanksgiving but the H1B’s at Kindle think the cover is flawed (it’s my cover! Publish the tanjed thing!). My short story collection is effective ready to go, only lacking a cover and copyediting, which I shall have completed in January.
In meatspace, my eldest daughter went off to college for Aminal Science/Pre-vet and is thriving to the point she’s spending part of May and June of 2020 at a college on Hokkaido. I changed employers for more pay and – more importantly – more time off to write.
Time which I have been using to write [working title] “Crusade”; 33.5k words since late October and the city of Savannah is only now about to be attacked. I suck at war stories, it seems. This shall end up either being a very large, 3-part novel, or I’ll break it into three distinct books. I’ll know when they show me the scenes.
Thanks to all who follow along. God willing, I’ve so many more stories to tell in the time I have left. Happy New Year!
