Sometimes the words flow and life is good.
Other times, well, it’s like a tooth extraction gone horribly wrong.
This past week has been an interesting mesh of being both unable to write and yet still averaging almost 2,000 words per day. I’ve been focusing mostly on DAUGHTERS OF THE PRIDE, though I did work some on the sooper sekrit projeckt as well as a short story for the next anthology I’m in. Weird thing… I’m pretty good at coming up with book titles, but short stories? Ugh. Short story titles are the bane of my existence. It’s why I usually just go to an 80’s synthwave band and look up song titles. Far easier than being overly clever.
This coming Tuesday will be part two of my Recommended Series series… I really need to come up with a better name. I’ll be delving back into the world of Caine Riordan from Charles E. Gannon. It’s a fascinating series and quite frankly, even if you only read the first book you’ll feel like so much has gone on you’ll forget that this is only the start of the series. Anyway, more talk about this on Tuesday.
Other than the new short story, nothing new going on. GUNBOAT DIPLOMACY is still rocking it on Amazon, still hovering just around the #10,000 overall rank on Kindle. It has 44 reviews, and I’d like to hit 50 before I go to FantaSci next month. Not sure this is a reasonable expectation though. It’ll definitely be over 50 by the time Libertycon arrives.
Voting for the Bud Webster Award for Best Author in Virginia is wrapping up. Make sure you get your vote in for me and my novel, SONS OF THE LION, by Feb 29th. Chris Kennedy won it in the inaugural year, I’d like to win it the second year. Keep it in the CKP family, so to speak.
Okay, back to writing. Gotta maintain the flow.
