It's been a while since I've written an update. The pandemic put the brakes on a lot of things last year, and we still haven't recovered. Conventions were and still are cancelled, and the manuscript I submitted in 2019 (Final Assembly
) is still under consideration. Yes, that's good news, as rejections generally come much more quickly. It's not a yes, but it's a definite maybe. In the mean time, I finished the direct sequel to that one, and a tangent sequel as well. I am currently putting the final touches on another book in the same universe, but eight hundred years before the book I submitted.
I'm still working from home, which is nice in a way. The commute is fabulous. The dress code is nonexistent. But the wait times on tech support and answers from colleagues can be frustrating. Also, I now have co-workers I've been working with for months, and have no idea what they look like.
I recently posted the original short story, Red Ice
. It's been modified and used at the first chapter in the new book. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll post the finished version.
Speaking of which, I'll be looking for more beta readers soon. Let me know if you want to be one.
There is so much else I could talk about, but it dives into politics pretty quickly. One thing I would love to avoid is bringing that division here. I am trying to tell stories set far beyond today's mess. I don't want to argue the rights and wrongs of Octavian's takeover of the Roman government. Too many harsh feelings on all sides. And don't get me started on Marc Anthony!
If you are reading this, I hope you are doing well. I hope everyone has a better 2021 than 2020.
