Hello, dust-collecting blog!

I really need to remember that I have this thing. I mean, how else will the webternets know what's going on with me?

Brief updates:

My "Cupcakes" novella, The Peculiar Quandary of Simon Canopus Artyle, did in fact go on sale over the summer. The response was fairly positive. A lot of folks said that they liked my whimsical departure from my more serious work, but that maybe my more serious stuff was more compelling, in the long run, which doesn't really surprise me.

It's been a good year otherwise. My name seems to be getting out there more and more, and whenever I do a book signing, I'm consistently flattered by the number of people who I don't know that go out of their way to find me and get me to sign their things. Knowing that there are even just a few people out there who read and like my books makes it all worth it.

I'm working on another project right now, too, but I can't say much about it at this time.

Wow, I hadn't realized it had been so long since I'd actually updated this thing. Let's see what I need to catch up on.

First off, response to The Seventh Chakra was quite positive! The book signing at Further Confusion 2010 was a very emotional and moving for me in a way that even the signing for Thousand Leaves wasn't. I think it was because, with Thousand Leaves, nobody really knew who I was; with The Seventh Chakra, I had a ton of people come up to me because they'd read my first book, and liked it enough that they wanted a second. I don't think I can overstate how that felt.

Another thing which has been in the works for a while, yet which has escaped reference here in this blog, is that I'm now also part of the team behind "Cupcakes," which is a brand of furry novellas that me and two other authors are putting together, as sort of a unique product line. My first entry into this should be coming out later in the summer, but I don't have a definite release date yet.

Also, my next upcoming novel (title still TBD) is hopefully going to be in the works soon. It's alive in my head somewhere, but I need to hammer out a lot more details before I take my fingers to the keyboard.

Pre-Release Review of "The Seventh Chakra"

I've got my first official review for The Seventh Chakra! It's over up on Weasel Wordsmith.

I'm actually really excited about this. Not only is the review very positive (which of course has me as waggy as anything), but for some reason, getting a pre-release review makes me feel more 'legit' or whatnot. Maybe it has to do with the industry I work in.

So yeah, go check it out!
