Status Update

It's been a while since I posted an update, so I thought I would drop back in. Unfortunately, I haven't kept up the pace from earlier in the year, and am sitting at 56k words in HoH. The good news is that is still further along. The bad news is that I likely won't finish the draft this year unless something significantly changes about my situation. I love writing and really want to put out some more books, but it is very difficult, especially when it is not your primary occupation. I have a lot of respect for the people who are able to make/find time to bring their stories to life. For me, writing has always been more "hobby" than "job," as I have a solid day job that provides for myself and my family. That has to come first. The good thing about writing is that, long after I've retired from my day job, I should still be able to write. I have no intention of giving it up, and will finish these stories, even if I have to have a George RR Martin-esque amount of time between each one.

Anyway, thanks to anyone still lurking around here. It means a lot. And there are a lot of you who have encouraged me either in person or online and I appreciate it. As I said, not stopping. Just moving more slowly than I'd like.

HoH Update

So, wanted to drop a quick update. I've been dutifully writing whenever I get the chance, and am right around 30k words written for the first draft of Hymn of Home. I'm shooting to have things wrapped up somewhere around 100k words, so I'm on pace to have the draft written this year. I'd like to improve my pace so I can get it actually released, but we shall see. Time is always at a premium. At least I'm chipping away at it, right?

Back on the Job

So it took me almost a year, but I finally got around to updating the print cover for Melody of the Fates. It is now live via Createspace. I had a lot going on last year, so not a lot got done writing-wise, but my goal this year is to get another book out! I'm hard at work writing the next installment of the Symphony of Two Keys. It will be called Hymn of Home. Here's a look at the new MotF print cover as well as a sneak peek at the HoH cover. You can see how I've come up with a theme to continue with this series. Anyway, if you're still hanging around, thanks and hope you enjoy!
