I mentioned previously that I hoped life could resume something like normality in early March. I’m extremely grateful that so far, that does seem to be the case. It’s going to take me a little time to get everything moving again, since so many different projects all stalled from lack of attention–and not only writing projects. But I’m feeling optimistic! So optimistic that I’ve begun to release the first chapter of the new Moonblood adventure, as of this past Friday. That may not have been the wisest plan while the adventure itself is still incomplete, but at this point,
This is going to be a busy year for releases. I just took a look at the current list of projects that are finished or in sufficiently late stages that I can be reasonably sure they will be soon. This is a highly tentative schedule. I haven’t yet decided whether to space them out at every second month or every third – chronic depression makes me wary of how long I can continue this kind of pace, and I’d like to have them spaced out. On the other hand, the satisfaction of actually releasing something once it’s finished is a

The info on the Smashwords website as far as dealing with this leads into paperwork and fees that made it equally pointless – why spend more than I expect to make in order to have people pay for my books? I don’t expect to earn much. That actually isn’t a main motivation for me, something I’ve discussed elsewhere. Essentially, I
So… yeah. I’ve been madly and obsessively working on a heavy-duty edit of BlackWolf roughly since my previous blog post. First a detailed comb-through by myself and repairs on all the things I flagged, then reading it aloud to my patient Jackie and repairs on all the things we noticed that way. It’s now reached the point where anything else I try to do myself will be more harm than good, so I’ve sent it off to my wonderful test readers. Based on their feedback, I’ll make whatever further changes are needed, and I’ll release it this summer – in
