Happy Easter Everyone!
I'm spending the weekend at home with family, and doing some small writing projects to keep things moving forward during my Spring Break laid-back work-a-thon.
I took the staff of SmartPig out to dinner last night at the phenomenal local eatery, "Liquids and Solids"... we had a super time with the inspired cuisine and cocktails, talking about Tyler and Amazon's takeover of GoodReads and the continuing snow and wonderful dogs.
We worked yesterday and this morning to make some minor changes to the text of HBM... nothing major, a few typos and such, and one name change.
I've been working on various web-stuff: my website, my Amazon author page, my GoodReads author page, and my Shelfari author page...given recent events, it may be that all three of these will be smooshed together to some degree in the coming weeks and months, but I'll worry about that when it happens.
My content editor is working on an, as yet unnamed, novelette that explores the Tyler and Mickey dynamic hinted at in HBM.
I'm nearing completion of another short Tyler Cunningham piece that take place early next summer over the span of 240 nerve-wracking minutes on a Wednesday afternoon.
As soon as that short piece is completed, I'm hoping to get to work on another short piece that details one of the Tyler's first 'cases', and set seven years before HBM took place.
I've been in contact with a few more potential narrators for a possible HBM audiobook, but haven't heard the right voice yet.
I'm trying to set up a round-robin of author interviews and articles with other blogging indie-authors I've been meeting online, to spread the word about what we're writing, doing, thinking, etc.
That makes it sounds as though I've been tremendously busy, but I've also spent lots of the last week reading and cooking and walking the dogs and watching some Netflix.
I hope that you all have a good weekend, however you spend it...we might be about to start a Charleton Heston movie marathon...
