Congrats to my Bro & News

My brother Steve is getting married in Montana this weekend so I'll be running up there today, be good to hang with family I haven't seen in awhile and I'll even drop by one of my old haunts (Chapter One Books and leave a couple signed copies)

Its nice to take a break every now and again, let the well refill and pick up something new for a future project.

Just submitted a short scary piece to Papercut Books for a Call of Lovecraft anthology-I'll let you know if they bite. And I am very nearly done with my new extra scenes for Blood of Our Fathers to turn over to my editor.

I have also begun work on a collaborative project that is pretty exciting, can't wait to dive into some of these new characters I have come up with=John Ten-Bears, I am basing him on Will Sampson and Shyla Kane, who while a modern day character--I have named her in tribute to Solomon Kane. I need to keep the rest of the details close to the vest for a little longer, but this is gonna be good.

Yes this makes for likely 5 or 6 current working projects-I need to prioritize and organize better.

So its a pretty good first half of July for me.

Have a great trip. Should be fun. :)

And good luck on the anthology piece. That would be cool.

Way to keep busy. For me, having multiple projects helps keep the creativity flowing since I can move to another if I ever get annoyed at one....still, there comes a time to focus on a single work and buckle down.

Sounds like you're accomplishing much. Good for you. I keep getting interrupted, but I AM reading Heroes of the Fallen and I like it very much. Glad you're taking some copies to Montana. Enjoy your weekend!

David! Have fun! What part of Montana are you going to?

Charles Gramlich said...

I like being busy myself, but right now I've got way too many projects I want to do for the time I have available to do them. Congrats on the exciting developments, though.

1. Did you submit to the werewolf anthology?

2. If so, did you ever get so much as a confirmation email?
