As we continue through what is a truly unimaginable year I've been using the time at home to work on author-related stuff. My theory is that if I get a LOT done now, then once things open back up I'm going to do some heavy-duty traveling. What author stuff have I been doing? Read on!
Besides writing books, authors have tons of other details to deal with especially if they are indie publishers of their own works. Since I'm spending almost all of my time inside our apartment I've been working on adding more content to the website, posting some of my travel photos on Instagram, and generally just sorting out the business side of my career.
The Instagram posts have been a lot of fun mostly because I have at least THREE banker's boxes full of slides from my travels from 1996 onward. (Back in the day I was a very serious amateur photographer.) Those trips include India, Japan, England, Wales, Scotland, Taiwan, U.S. and Portugal. I've been scanning the slides, getting rid of the junky ones, and filing away the decent ones onto my computer. It's only fair to share them. I'm also sharing some of the photos that were from my digital camera. It's been astounding to see all the places I've been. So if you're interested in some far-flung locales check out my Instagram page. I'll post a new image every day.
Some of the new content on this website includes a gallery of demon illustrations courtesy of artist Mark Helwig. He said he had a blast creating these. I love them all but my favorite is the little Klepto-Fiend in the sippy cup. What a character.
Progress is being made on LOST SOULS, the next Demon Trappers book. I have a cover by the very talented Clarissa at Yocla Designs. I'm currently fixing some plot holes and then this will move into final production.
ALSO.... Happy Birthday Riley Blackthorne! Our famous trapper girl is certainly celebrating today.
That's the latest. Stay well. I'm looking forward to a year where we can all take a deep breath and relax.
P.S. For my U.S. readers -- please vote. Democracy works best when the voters hold their elected officials accountable.
