Well, as the title says, it's been a while. So many other things going on. And as they say, every minute spent on writing blog posts is a minute not working on actual writing. But with my first full-length novel at the editor's, being beaten up by a professional, I find myself with a little free time. Yes, I could be working hardcore on the novella I am finishing up, "The Fountain", or start working on the next book, The Hum, but I am enjoying a couple of days without any writing responsibilities.
Once Blood, Smoke and Ashes returns from the editor for a final go through, I am going to be spending a lot of late nights polishing that up, so there will be little time available for these mundane but necessary tasks, like: setting up advertising dates for February and March (done), putting together a new Darkest Days Publishing site (done, at www.darkestdayspublishing.com), writing up an intro page, an acknowledgment page, an end note (working on it), putting together a new biography (done), putting together the basic eBook document (need to start), putting together the basic print version document (need to start, not looking forward to that) and updating this blog site (still doing). And those are just the tasks I can think of off the top of my head.
At least I can now cross 'writing my first blog post in over half a year' off the list. It isn't exciting, but it is done.
Anyway, I'm going to put something up for the Coffinhop in the next day or two. As soon as I figure out what I am doing.
Keep your eyes peeled for that. And I will be posting information, including firm release date and cover image, for Blood, Smoke and Ashes as it becomes available. But for now, you can click here to be brought to the book's official page over at Darkest Days Publishing.
Thanks for your time.
