Wow. I must apologize as I’ve been away from this website for a really long time. However, I have been really busy with things that were really exciting.
For the most part, my time during the past 6 months has been focused on running for Ottawa City Council. Despite long odds, no money and few volunteers, we managed to put together an excellent showing in Capital Ward. Despite all of the long hours, I found that the experience was really worth it as I met some amazing people, campaigned on issues I cared about and worked hard to represent a community that has become my home. I’m not sure that I would ever do it again but it was well worth the experience!
Following the campaign, I was hoping to participate in National Novel Writing Month but I found that I was simply too exhausted. I have for the most part been working on my next project, The Canvasser, a comedy screenplay which I hope to film on a micro-budget next year. I’m also working on a couple of other screenplays (tis the season of screenplays), namely I, Virus and an unnamed project over the long term while trying to find time to edit my 2012 NaNoWriMo project, Other than I, and my children’s book, Ballad of the Four Princesses, into novella format. Over the next couple of months, I also need to update my website so that it’s less like a blog and more of a bookstore. I wish that I had more hours in the day.
Next year will be a big one for me as I hope to finally focus on the promotional aspect of my writing career and go ahead and starting making and meeting new fans. It’s going to be an exciting year and I hope that I will be able to keep all of your updated.
I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun writing as I have recently so I’ll see if I can keep up the momentum into 2015. Thanks again for all of your support.
Sorry everyone for the long time in between posts but I’ve been working on a lot of interesting things recently.
Aside from non-book related activities and travel, I’ve been working on editing the manuscript that I developed during the 2012 National Novel Writing Month – Other than I. My current plan is to finish another edit on it over the next few months before I submit it to an editor. Aside from that, I don’t have a lot of promotional events going on during the summer months and this project will take up most of my free time. In the meantime, I will have a number of Amazon promotions offering discounts on my previous novel: Evermore: Call of the Nocturne. If all goes well with Other than I, I should be able to start production on the next book in the Evermore series in November. The name is under wraps for now but I hope to have more news on this project soon.
Until then, please enjoy your summer … and buy my book if you haven’t already.
Great news for those of you who have not yet bought my debut novel, Evermore: Call of the Nocturne. Lulu, the site where I self-publish, is having a special sale where you can 40% of all of their print editions. I repeat … 40%!
All you have to do is go to the Lulu Bookstore, find my book, add it to your basket and then use the coupon code FALLSALE40 when you check out. It’s that simple.
So if you’ve been meaning to read it for a while, now’s your chance. You’ll have a great time and you’ll save money.
