Hello Readers and Web Crawlers,
First, let me apologize for my extended absence. I’ve had some rather big life events come up in ’13 and ’14 that took a good majority of my time, namely having a baby and changing jobs. Combine that with the fact that, between October and February, I have no less than four holidays and four birthdays to attend to, and I think you can see where this is headed.
Things are going well. The new job is working out great, and it’s allowed me to quit my second part-time work, leaving me more room for family, fun, and of course writing.
Speaking of, I know I’ve been promising you the release of Solaea for some time now, but regretfully I’m going to have to renege on that promise. I just don’t feel that the work is ready to see the light of day yet. It’s got too much dragging it down at this point, and needs far too much TLC before I can consider it publishable. I’m at the point where I may be looking at cutting 90% of the work and redoing it from scratch. I can’t say for sure. Keep in mind: this is a work with a very rich mythology, it’s the first book I ever wrote, and it comes with 16+ years of baggage. Never fear, I have not and will not give up on the project. I’m determined to see it birthed to the world. Now is just not the right time, and other works have grabbed my present attention.
Which brings me to my next point. I’ve started on a new project, something which is in many ways outside of my comfort zone (a good thing, since it’s challenging me to be better than ever). I’m very excited about this one, and it’s coming along nicely. Expect to see and hear more as we get deeper into 2014.
I should also mention that I’ve cleaned up Caeli and updated the copies online, so if you head over to Smashwords or Kindle you can grab a copy that represents the work at its best. At 99 cents, it’s still a great deal.
Please feel free to reach out to me, and take care. Thanks for reading.
