July was not that long ago, but so much stuff has been crammed into the past three months! Went on my yearly gay camping trip, an event that continues to provide inspiration for a future book. Also went to Vegas for the second time. The great thing about traveling is that interesting, colorful people are around every corner, unwittingly fueling my imagination with character details.
The editor gave some wonderful feedback on Book 2's first two chapters, and I spent some time reworking some details. Additionally, I'll be reaching the 70k word mark this weekend. Beta readers are lined up for late this year, and time has been booked with the editor in February. I've got a deadline!
Tim Barber of Dissect Designs did an awesome job of creating the cover for The King's Sun. He recently interviewed me, and you can read the article over on his website. I talk about the 14 year journey of bringing the book to life, including what inspired the idea and my writing process. Check it out! There are other author interviews if you like to read up on some behind-the-scenes details.
