For those of you who don’t know, June is an insane month for my family. We have nine birthdays, Father’s Day, and my wedding anniversary. During a normal June, I can still work through it and be productive. However, we added in a trip to the Oregon Coast at the end of the month to spread my mother’s ashes, which put me in a bit of a funk. The trip went well, but I needed a couple weeks to get my brain back into things.
That would be why there has been essentially no news from me here on the site, and why everything on my social media has been personal in nature. That changes today. I’m back and with some amazing news.
First, another one of my flash fiction stories has been accepted by Havok to be published on a Thursday in August. I don’t have the date yet, but when I do, I will let you know.
Also, this Friday, July 19, Bear’s Lullaby will finally be released. This is a project I have been sitting on since my daughter was born in 2010, when I composed the song. In 2011, I hired Shayne Hood through Elance (now Upwork) to draw pictures to go with the verses so I could put it into a bedtime book for my daughter.
Fast forward to this year. Faith in Concordia was a difficult project. Constructing a new world takes a lot of brainpower and time, and I gave myself some pretty crazy deadlines for publication during 2018. For that reason, I decided to take this year to really think through and write the next Concordia series. Meaning, there won’t be any big novel publications in 2019.
In April, The Talented Turtle was released. Now, Bear’s Lullaby is available for pre-order (for Kindle). It will be out for Kindle and paperback on Friday. At the end of the book, you will find sheet music for the melody. I really hope you guys like it.
Finally, Faith in Concordia Omnibus is being pushed out to October 18. I know, I know. Sad news, but there are two positives to this negative, so cheerio!
