I know school has already started for some, and will start soon for others. I admit I'm kind of glad I don't have to worry about that this year. It's the first time in seven years that I haven't, and I admit, it's kind of nice. But for those who do have to worry about it, be it as a teacher or student, I wish you luck.
I know I should apologize for not being overly communicative the last few months. It's been one hectic thing after another as we tried to move into our new semi-permanent home. (Hoping to stay put for a couple good years, but we'll see what happens.) And I'm only now just unearthing everything after the final stage of our move. It's been a crazy month but I hope to get back into the swing of things here soon.
Current projects include trying to get everything good to go. (I do need to get a new computer desk after the other one didn't make the move. Yeah, it's in pieces in a dumpster somewhere.) And I still need to rearrange my new workspace, but I hope to start my Fiction Writing for the Average Joe series in the next month or two. I'll post links when that becomes available, but, in the meantime, if you have anything you'd like me to cover, by all means, comment or send me a message!
Also in the works, a 3-in-1 version of the Tarragon Trilogy, which will have, fingers crossed, new material in the back matter, mainly illustrations, potentially some short stories, and a few other possible surprises, so keep an eye open for that. I'm also hoping to make more public appearances here in the next year but we'll see how that goes.
All in all, it's been an eventful month and I'm sure the rest of the year will be no exception. Here's hoping it goes well for everyone!
So I've been thinking of turning my Tarragon series into audio books. If I did that, who would be interested? Would you prefer a certain type of voice? How would you feel if I were the one to read them?
Also, how would you feel about a new cover for The Unknown Elf? I think it might be time to update that one as well, and add a bit more to the appendix area of the book.
And while we're on the topic of potential changes and so forth, what kinds of things would you like to see from me in the future? Don't be shy. By all means, please let me know. Do you want more Tarragon? More Bob the Dinosaur? More with the elves at the North Pole? Or something completely different?
I wonder how many of you are interested in reading fan fiction. I don't give my fan fiction stories the same treatment as I do my original works so they're kind of rough, but I've been writing a lot involving Big Hero 6 lately, mixing them up with other fandoms. Who would be interesting in giving them a read over? After all, fan fiction is just as amazing, viable, and current as anything else I write.
Hey all. I know it's been a while since I last updated. Things are super crazy over here! I'm in the middle of trying to move from one place to another, on top of working on several other different projects that I hope to be able to tell you more about in the next few months.
But, for those who are avid readers and want to beat the heat, I did want to let you know that my books are currently on sale on Smashwords during their July Summer Sale.
I was thinking, pretty recently actually, and wondering, now that Tarragon: Dragon Bane has been out for a few months, how many of you, who've read it, would be interested in more backstory for characters like Walter, Tyler, and maybe Margo and James Porter?
I most especially am interested to know if anyone would like to hear more about Walter Watkins and his history leading up to, and maybe going past, when he first met Tyler.
If there are any other characters you'd like to have a better idea of their history, etc, by all means, feel free to comment and let me know. I'm currently looking into expanding all the backstories of any of the characters you guys want to hear more about.
Also, for those who liked my Bob the Littlest Dinosaur book, I just thought I'd share that I am working on a sequel, Bob and the Color Fairy. Fingers crossed, I'll be releasing that late this fall, early winter.
