So it’s been what, 6 months since I updated the blog? That’s sad. Dusty old posts, full of promise and hope, and then silence. Well I’ll change that now. Not sure who even reads these but here’s what’s new, what’s happening, and what my current plans are.

What’s new?

Well, not a lot. I’m still editing Blood of a Fallen God, though I’m close, very close to being done. I have a page of sections I’ve noted down that I want to improve. More emotion, better wording, clarification, and a small plot hole. I hope to have those changes made sooner rather than later. I’ll go into why later on.

What’s been happening outside that?

Well my day to day life has been busy, but good. Kids getting older, lots of trips to Disney (thanks to winning annual passes) trying to get into better shape, via the rowing machine. I bought one right before Christmas, and while someday I hate it, it’s been a great workout. And while I haven’t lost a ton of weight on it yet, it certainly does a good job toning things up. My biggest issue with exercise has always been me getting bored with whatever I’m doing. I’m working to stick with this, but we shall see. So far, so good at least.

What’s the current plans?

I’ve been giving a lot of time thinking on this. My goal with this book was always to try and get it published via Kindle scout. But since that program is gone (booooo!) I’ve been unsure what to do. Self publish again? Traditional publishing? I was torn. I think however I’m going to throw myself into the world of #pitmad. Pitch the book to agents, see if I can move this forward this way. I have no idea what exactly I’m doing, but I think that’s a good thing. Gotta grow someway, right?

I’m also going to try and be more active here, and on social media. I’ve always been so bad at marketing, but mostly because I always feel like I’m ‘bothering’ people. I’ve got to get over that. So, I’m going to try.

So that’s what’s new with me? What about you?
