Apologizes for not giving an update in so long. The last company I was employed with turned into a real mess, with many people quitting (eventually even myself.) This turned my schedule into a disaster. I had to adjust to working at different times, morning or night. I am now working on getting my schedule normalized so that I can better focus on my creativity. I did recently write a short story called “The Scarlet Renegade”, which I hope to publish with a major fiction magazine. The first draft for my next novel is two thirds complete. I also look forward to sharing more of my visual art as well.
Sorry I haven't been updating lately. I started working on a new novel, reaching chapter 9 in the rough draft, then my working schedule started changing all around. Once it normalizes I can get can back to regular posting habits. My new book is a more literary work than I've shared previously, and I may seek a small publisher or local agent for representation with this one. I will update you as it progresses.
I am thinking of resuming my work on my Sam Steele project. Several people here had supported me in that endeavor and I feel bad that I strayed from it. There are still a few more books I need to read through, notes to take and time spent thinking on what I want it to be before I start writing it. But I feel we all need to remember who Sam Steele was and the good he represented.
Sorry I haven't been updating much lately on my writing. I'm in a period of working through what I want to do going forward. I stopped working on my Sam Steele project after the research was two thirds complete. I may get back to it, or it may be postponed. The world of self-publishing is grossly oversaturated and it's been hard gaining ground. I'll let you all know when I've decided what I want to do going forward.
In light of recent coordinated efforts by Amazon, Google and Apple to remove a great many people whose opinions they don't want heard (and entire platforms like Parler) I will no longer to be doing business with Amazon. I will be removing all my books from Amazon shortly and will begin to consider alternatives for self-publishing.
