Update

I thought, since I’ve been absent for a long time, that I’d give everyone an update as to what’s new and forthcoming in that wonderful, all-encompassing term “soon”, in the life of this writer.

A new short story is upcoming, soon, available on amazon and via Smashwords (and thus everywhere else that they push to). It’s called The Magical Tree, and I’ll let you know as soon as it hits.

I have another short story in the works, recently finished, going through the editing process. It’s untitled as yet, but it has zombies in it. The only way I could make it better would be to add bacon. Or put it in a pie. I digress.

The novel, also untitled (officially), is underway. You can check out some horribly first draft type stuff here, on my other blog. Working title is The Christopher Dickens Story. It’s about a third of the way done, and beware: the posts are not all in proper order and are hideously unedited.

I have some ideas banging around for a few other stories, but I’ll stick to editing and getting the previously mentioned 2 out first, and then knuckle down and finish those, solely for your enjoyment.

I also read some cool new books: Hyddenworld, and Wall of Days. I’ve reviewed them on goodreads, so find me, add me, read the reviews, then go out and buy the books and be cool like me. While we’re on the subject of “find me and add me”, I’m also on google+, so go add me to your circle, punk.

Finally, I discovered the wonder of kindlegraph, which you should check out too. I’ll sign it for you, if you want.

And that’s that! Enjoy the weekend folks, and remember that you can still grab Into the Rift for free while the Smashwords sale is on, until Sunday midnight. Link, if you haven’t worked it out yet, is here.

Cheers,
Brett

    Good luck! I just self-publsihed a middle grade novel (Elsbett & Robin Take On A-Nasty-Sia, https://www.createspace.com/3651515) and definitely understand how nerve-wracking it can be. You never know how much money to invest in it, etc…

      Congrats! Sounds like an interesting story. It’s definitely an experience, but mine has been fun so far. I trust that in the long run the effort (and money invested) will pay off. My plan is to start out small, and reinvest the money I make from self publishing to be used for the next book. I’ll let you know how that goes šŸ™‚ Good luck with your novel as well.

  2. Short story with zombies? I’m in! I can’t wait until “The Walking Dead” returns this fall. Can I convince you to add bacon and pie to the story? Bacon improves everything! Congrats on your productive summer!

      Will you be judging me if I said I’d never watched an episode of “The Walking Dead”? If so…then yeah, I love it and can’t wait either šŸ™‚ Thanks, although it’s been winter here in South Africa. I’m going to go find me an episode of “The Walking Dead” now, so I hope it’s good. Thanks for the comment.
