Hello, hello! I can't believe it's February already. January continues the string of odd months with no sense of real time. I'm falling into a bit of a routine with it, though, including weekly Zoom meetings and socially distanced walks when the rain stops, and writing so much. I do at least have that going for me. Lots of writing is getting done, and I have lots to share!
My new story is coming along really well, so I'll be posting the first chapter this month! I'm very excited to share it. Here's the summary:
Ivy, Jason, and Gray were inseparable when they were younger, eager to cause trouble and investigate their tiny town of River Road and the strange forest that surrounded it. They were afraid of nothing, thought they would always be together... until a tragedy five years ago, when Gray disappeared into thin air. Ivy and Jason moved on and grew apart, his disappearance hanging over them.
Now Gray has reappeared as suddenly as he vanished, with new scars and no memory of what happened to him, forcing the three of them back together to try to solve the mystery of what happened- and what is lurking in the forest.
The first chapter is coming on Friday the 12th! You can read it here.
Editing is coming along on schedule! I'm feeling a little less optimistic about finishing it by the end of this year- I have to edit a chapter a week to stay on schedule, including the ones that need to be rewritten from scratch- but so far that's still my plan. I don't have anything to share quite yet, but I hope to have a piece posted on here or on Patreon soon. Stay tuned!
I've discovered that I really like writing flash fiction- which was an odd thing to discover because the other thing I like to write is 100k+ novels- so I've written several of those this month. They all have a sci-fi or fantasy or supernatural twist (because it's me) and I have ideas for a bunch more. Some of them are submitted to contests, and some of them I'm going to be posting on my Patreon here. The first one is going to be posted this Friday- a story about sirens!
That's all for right now! For updates on what's coming, what I'm reading, and more, follow me on Instagram and Twitter, and if you have anything you want to read on here drop me a comment!
