This week has been beyond busy. Multiple long days for the day job and a reminder that working from home and having something due means that you pretty much are always working. So the blog is coming a couple of days late this week.
Anyway, I thought I’d use this time to do a quick round-up. This last month has been a little busy on the creative side as well.
The Echo Effect
Released at the end of September, but we’ll include it here since it was a couple of years in the making. I tried a strategy of releasing it for $0.99 and doing some paid promotion and now I really just need to sit down and see how successful it really was. Up until about a week ago I was still getting a good number of page reads, but those have finally petered out. Again, that could be as simple as me not really posting anything about the book in a couple of weeks.
While the Kickstarter funded right as the pandemic was hitting the US, Sean Hill has been diligently working on the pages and finished up the last one a few weeks ago which means the backers are beginning to get their shipments! I don’t have a copy just yet in my hands, but it’ll never get old to have that finished product to turn over, flip through, etc.
Tales from Vigilante City
I have a short story in this new anthology based on a more street-level superhero RPG. My story (“Anonymous”) was about a henchman deciding to get his one last score. I ordered a copy of the book to have for my shelf and it came late last week. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else wrote about.
Chat and Spin
Finally, I appeared on a UK radio show for a quick interview about my novels. I’ve never done a live interview like that, but it was a lot of fun. Afterward, they invited me to come back sometime in the new year, so I must have done something right!
