Apparently I decided that during the period I promised to produce a lengthy work of art was also the time to undertake many life-changing endeavors, including graduating from college, starting a family, making an interstate move, selling a house, and beginning a challenging new career (because, sadly, writing does not pay the bills yet–hey, buy my book!).
With the excuses out of the way, things are starting to settle down (again) and I’ve made some progress. For some reason, I’ve always had this compulsive desire to write fiction, so I’m not going to give it up merely because it might be easier to (it wouldn’t), or even if it never turns into financial success. And really, the feedback on Shadows has been so positive that I’d have to be a real jerk not to continue the series.
So my goal is to have sequel done and published by the end of the year, of course, the sooner the better. There will also be an audiobook version at some point, though I’m still mulling my options on that front. So yes, I’m still alive and there is still writing going on.
That being said, it did take me two hours to compose this post because I’m taking care of the baby, so life and all that.
