It’s been a while since the last update. The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Although I’ve been at the center of it, this sure doesn’t feel like the peaceful eye of the storm.
The major update here is that I’ve been developing some short fiction for Trese Brothers Games, the first of which drops this weekend. No Legacy Between The Stars was a ton of fun to write. Helping to flesh out the universe Trese Brothers have built around their Star Traders game continues to be a blast, and I’m really looking forward to more.
Enough of the mushy stuff – the story goes up (how can something drop upwards?) on Google Play, iBooks, and Amazon. It’ll go for 99 cents, and believe you me there’s definitely not-quite-a-dollar’s worth of entertainment in there. I fought against charging the extra cent just so I could make that promise.
I’ll post the various links on Monday, after I splatter them all over social media like the cry for attention and validation that they definitely aren’t.
In other news:
Over the last year, I’ve started working a day job. Despite those boastful claims of working for myself written in a flurry of self-congratulation and optimism, that is not always how these things work out. Projects fizzle, money dries up, and bills still need to be paid.
However, I was lucky enough to find a great place to work instead of a soul-sucking Sarlacc pit of corporate greed. Last year I went to work for O2E Brands via their flagship company 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and decided to stick around. Now I’m doing some blogging for them in addition to the other stuff they pay me for. There are already some articles up on their blogs, which I’ll start linking to in the future – and again, more to come.
That’s about it for the news, but how about some cryptic hints?
- I’m expanding and refining my entry for the 3-Day Novel Contest 2014 into a novel for release late 2015/early 2016.
- The first draft of my upcoming book of short stories is almost finished, with the completed book releasing early/mid 2016 or earlier.
- I’ll be spending more time on screenwriting, maybe some short films with a few local Toronto filmmakers in the near future.
- I’m moving back to Toronto.
- I don’t understand the concept of crypticism.
