Jacksonville, FL, has been hot. First Tropical Storm Debbie tries to drown us, now it feels like summer is trying to bake us. We’ll reach a happy medium several months from now but will have to hang in there until then. Fall cannot get here fast enough.
What’s Been Happening
We’ve just wrapped the Trinity Gateways Newsletter, so I can now spend more time on other projects. Currently, I have a cover to design for Tricia Sparks as the artwork’s come in, and LJ Gastineau has sent me a few stories that I need to review for the anthology we’re putting together. Then, of course, is my own series work. I’ve had to scale back on my writing in order to get the newsletter out before the end of June but am pleased to say that I’m back on track as of this week. Descent Into Darkness: His Command has now broken 36,000 words and 110 pages in MS Word, making it the longest installment of the series thus far. It feels like it has about another 10,000 words left in it, maybe a little less than that. It’s due out in October but I hope to have to it finished by the beginning of August in order to get it edited by Tricia Sparks while I work with LJ Gastineau on finalizing the horror anthology, Shadows of the Mind.
It means that the busy trend of the last few months won’t be slowing down any time soon.
While all of this is going on we’re prepping for Ancient City Con, July 20-22, 2012. I’ve received my shipment of Descent Into Darkness, Volume 1: He Begins to sell at the Trinity Gateways table. Most of the promotional materials have come in at this point, and we’ve gotten almost all of the display components for the table setup. We’re excited about the con, seeing old friends, making new ones, and are looking forward to a good time.
Now For The Update
The rough Chapters 13 & 14 of Descent Into Darkness: His Command are now up for those of you who are interested. Happy reading and enjoy!
