Yesterday I completed another short story (plus edited and published, all under a pen  name though), finished Hungry Gods 3 (which moves on to the editing stage now), and began another 20k novella (also under a pen name). Although Hungry Gods is written, Apocalypse Witch 3 goes through editing first.

Just to point out how pathetic I was in February, after only 3 days in March I’ve already written more than I did last month. AND! I took one day off so far. Today’s goal is to work on Spilling Blood 12, edit on Apocalypse Witch 3, and put a little bit of time into my pen name writing.

Btw… I’m working on a Mac now. I haven’t made the transition fully, I still need Photoshop and MS Office before I’ve fully moved. So I’m still a PC AND Man guy, for the time being. Thank God for OneDrive and Google Drive. It makes it super easy to work between different machines. I also have a Windows PC/tablet for writing on the road, and being able to have files shared among all of the machines (without carrying out jump drives, SD cards, etc) is a blessing.

Thought I’d check in for the first of the month, since February was kinda’ wasted. Despite not getting much done in the way of word count, I still published a short story and a novella last month. Yesterday I hit the ground running, though I didn’t get to my much needed writing. The Time Travel novel is currently on hold. I’m not enjoying the story, so I’m taking a step back. I’m going to get some other projects wrapped up first. I’ve dropped it from the list.

Broken Things in One Book One School

 

Yesterday the Magic Valley High School in Twin Falls kicked off their One Book One School program. This is a program where both staff and students read the same book, 30 minutes a day, for several weeks. They are then holding two contests: an essay and a presentation.

What is particularly exciting (for me) is that they’ve chosen my novel Broken Things for the program. I delivered 200 signed copies to the school last Thursday, and I will also participate in a meet and greet later this month with all of the students.

I released Broken Things in 2013, and this is quite an honor to be chosen (they could have chosen from any of the classics or more widely known authors). A heartfelt special thanks to Ms. Miller for getting the book attention, the rest of the faculty for their support, and to the school and students. You all are awesome. 🙂
