This year is off to an EXCELLENT start, if I do say so myself. I got lots of reading done. I got lots of editing done. I played a lot of video games. And I’m thrilled with my health progress. I know I said I wasn’t travelling anywhere, but I managed to sneak away to the beach and have a lovely 2 days with excellent friends. Not much other news to report, so let’s jump in!
- The final Steel Victory rewrite is completed, copy-edited, and submitted to my editor. This new edition of the text will also include a bonus short story (how Victory and Mikelos first met!) AND a brief history of the city of Limani. I can’t wait to share all of these goodies this summer!
- Beta-reading progress report: SO. CLOSE.
- As promised, there are new goodies over at the Worldbuilding section of my website! (Links below.)
- It’s time to jump back into book 6, Steel Justice! This month, I’ll be focusing on revisions based on the feedback I received from my fabulous beta readers.
- Review two super-secret projects! (Sometimes, I get to read books by my favorite authors before publication. I love this part of my job.)
- A new indie bookstore in Baltimore, Carpe Librum, is hosting me for an author brunch! I hope you’re able to stop by if you’re local to the Baltimore area. Details here.
- Attend my first con of 2020: Farpoint, also in the Baltimore area! Will I see you there?
- Two more updates to pages over at the Worldbuilding section!
