HAPPY NEW YEAR to my internet family! How have you all been? I had a wonderful holiday, a restful New Year, and I’m ready to get back to work.
First up, let’s talk new year, new goals. My number one goal for 2018 is to get back to querying Keeper’s one. I’ll keep you updated on progress with that as the months go one. Secondly, Stealth, or The Color of Blood. I love this book. It’s probably the book I am most proud of. I want to get that to a query-able state in 2018 as well. You may now be thinking, what about actual writing? Is there time in there for that?
Here’s my plan. One chapter of a NEW book each month posted to patreon, along with continuing shorts from imPROMPTu and Channillo weekly. Also, I will be starting a new novel in April for Camp NaNoWriMo, no word on what that is yet, but I’m doing it.
Lastly, I am going to continue to focus on my mental health. I need to get well and to do that I am going to keep up with my ballet and making and selling my journals on Etsy. Both of those let me focus outside of myself as I do them and it helps clear my head.
Thank you for being patient with me while I was revitalizing myself this winter, I’ll never be able to repay you.
OH! One last thing. Patrons, your 5k work short story will be released in sections starting this week. I hope you enjoy it. It’s one of my all-time favorites.
I love you all,
I wanted to drop you a quick note to give you an update on what's been going on here. I'm taking a bit of a hiatus for writing. January is the busiest month of the year for my business with taxes, planning, and various renewals. I'll be back in February and I'll post a few shorts to tide you (patrons only) over until then.
Thanks for your continued support and I hope you had a wonderful holiday and new year season.
I'm excited to announce that Channillo has accepted my third series, Once Upon a Winter's Word!
This is a short story series all themed around Christmas, Hanukkah, the holidays, and most importantly- SNOW! I've been working on these stories for over a year now and I am tickled to be able to share them with you all. The series will premier on December first and release a new short story every day (think Advent).
I really hope you'll check out Channillo.com and some of the stories there, or consider joining my Patreon family as I will be posting them here for my $5+ Patrons as well!
Happy early holidays!
Today's the day! I have been working on this series for MONTHS now and I can't wait to share it with you. Long-Distance Love, or LDL, is available exclusively on Channillo.com currently.
Here's the blurb about the series, please help spread the word. (he he pun)
The format for this short series is postcard length excerpts mailed between Andrew, a business assistant to a wealthy friend, and Jenna, a linguistic anthropologist. As the two of them travel the world separately, they meet via a postcard happenstance. They then find that they enjoy each other's company and become long-distance pen pals, getting to know each other over many years.
I will be at Steamposium in Seattle this weekend! Last year, I attended this convention for research for a short story I was working on. That story is in the process of being published and I will be attending again this year because I had so much fun writing it and immersing myself in the culture!
If you're in the Seattle area and you want to join, here is more information. I believe there are still tickets available so stop by!
This week you get 1 giant vlog!
A lot has happened this week. I re-opened my Patreon, found 4theword.com, started posting for Long-Distance Love, AND had plenty of time to cuddle Cirilla!
