And I scream at the top of my lungs, “What’s going on?!”
If you frequent my writing space, as in this website, you may be wondering what is going on? I haven’t posted an original story of my own in a while, and the last post I did was in September and was a guest post (Jennifer Word, in fact, and it is a good read so check it out).
Well, I haven’t given up writing, so quit counting your chickens before they hatch, Sally Pinkerton. No, I’ve just been working ‘offline’ or ‘behind-the-scenes’ more than I have on posting. Which is shameful, and I promise I’ll be posting something fresh soon.
What have I been doing, you ask?
- Building ‘spaces’ for my online novellas. I’ve started to build ‘subsites’ within my TFB domain. I am currently working on subsites for ‘The Agency’ (which I plan to rewrite what is currently written), ‘The Rolling Stone’ and others.
- Building a subsite for ‘Hardboil High’. I’m also building a subsite for ‘Hardboil High’. This subsite will over time become more and more expansive, when you consider the book series is 7 books long. It includes excerpts, news, downloads and so on.
- Working on a collaborative short novel. Alongside 4 other authors, I co-wrote a String-Along story (that’s what I like to call it). We worked in a rotation, with an writing 1 chapter per rotation. It was a great project, and the end result was a pretty solid crime novel titled ‘Fatal Flaws’. We’ve made it passed the editing stages, first formatting draft, and it is on me to design the book cover soon, and provide a final formatted manuscript. We plan to have it available for purchase online in both paperback and digital download on January 1, 2012. I will release more details on that as we near the publish date.
So, as you can see, I have been busy in the writing game, just not writing and posting much. Lame, I know. And then, to top it all off, I woke up this morning with the itch to take everything I have on the site, edit, format, and publish it all as one, massive anthology. My mind is always at work, even if my fingers aren’t.
I’m also now on Google+ with my Google Apps account, which makes me happy. I’ve been wanting this for some time now, but they only recently allowed Google Apps’ accounts on. Circle me here.
