Ah. Fall. Finally here. Sort of. I mean, it’s still ninety-something degrees out. But that’s okay. In a few months, I’ll be complaining how cold it is, how frozen solid my balls are, and how much I hate shoveling snow. I mean, if there’s a place where it feels like October in the upper Northeast twenty-four-seven three-sixty-five, sign me up.
It’s been relatively quiet on the blog front this past month as I’ve been finishing up a few projects. My 80s slasher novel that’s not really an 80s slasher novel is complete. Going through the editing stages now and I’ll probably be submitting it sometime during the next few months. I mentioned last month that I’m going to cross the line and seek traditional publication with this one, so fingers crossed. Just yesterday I completed the first draft of my “Giant Shark” novella. It clocked in at about 40k words, 10k of them coming in a span of two days. And damn did that feel good, in a painful sort of way. I’ll be working on it more early next year after SUNFALL: Season Three is published – which by the way, I should be starting the second draft within a week or two! With SS3, we’re still aiming for an early 2017 release, but nothing has been set in stone just yet.
I’ll be doing some appearances/signings this fall! Details to follow, but there’s some cool stuff going on, so if you live in the NJ area, watch this space or my Facebook page for updates. You won’t want to miss it.
Finally, I’ve continued with reading at an unbelievable pace. That TBR pile is starting to dwindle. The last two novels I read were Savages by Greg F. Gifune and Pay Up and Die by Chuck Buda. I highly recommend them both, but if you’re a fan of horror and superb writing, Gifune’s Savages is must-read material. Definitely a contender for my favorite novel of the year.
Well, that’s it. Short and sweet. Back to my tall glass of Sam Adam’s Octoberfest and my keyboard – I do believe I have some stories to tell.
