Quick update!

Hey guys!

So I’m sure many of you are caught up on the whole Universal Fancon fiasco, and yeah… it was a shitshow. I’d gotten the email along with the other Kickstarter backers around 1 P.M. Friday and had to break the news to my publisher (she was never notified). Thank God she hadn’t started to ship things out to the hotel or to me. My publisher was able to recoup the money she’d lost from her bank, but I don’t know if other vendors were able to do the same.

So now, we’ve got Anime North to look forward to! It’ll be my first trip to Toronto in many, many moons and I’ll have Memorial Day free to look around. So if you’ve got some suggestions on places I should check out, please hit me up and let me know.

I promise to get better with blogging this year. I’ve had so many real life events pop up that have deterred me concerning writing. But the year isn’t over yet and I’ve still got some writing goals to meet. I know it’s early but I’ve been thinking about NaNoWriMo—whether I plan to participate or not. It’ll depend on where I’m living. I’d planned to move this summer, but it may or may not be postponed until after this upcoming winter. So we’ll see—if I’m still in Baltimore and have time, I’ll do it. If I’m in the middle of another project (regardless of where I’m living), I’ll miss it this year.

Honestly in a way, I’m always doing NaNo, lol! Oh before I forget, I’ve found a podcast episode I’d forgotten I’d recorded. So as soon as I can edit it, I’ll post it. Good timing, as it’s an updated interview with Sharon, my publisher, while we were at a trade show and now, we’re about to head to another!

How do you continue on when your world changes in one night?

First, I apologize for the long ass delay. A couple of months ago, my best friend died. And then literally a day later, I was in the hospital with the flu. Needless to say, I’ve put pause on EVERYTHING and I’m just now starting to get back into the flow of things.

So…

Confusion

I had a podcast episode that I had planned to release today, but after careful consideration I’ve decided not to. It was nothing controversial– I couldn’t fix the audio. I’d recorded in a new environment and you can hear incessant background noise that I’d hoped my mic hadn’t picked up on.

But it did. And try as I did to isolate and tone the sounds down, it just muddled the audio that I did want you guys to hear. So I’ll re-record it with the interviewee at a time when she can fit me in again.

In the meantime, how is your week going so far? I’d actually gotten some writing down yesterday in the form of an outline for a kid’s picture I want to write. While that wasn’t my project this week, I wasn’t about to shut off the muse faucet after I’d been stuck for a while. Now let’s hope this transfers over when I go back to writing my novel this week!
