I had no intention of writing anything on the blog today, but here we are.
I don’t know why I haven’t been writing on here more often, it’s just something that I haven’t found interesting.
It’s not to say that I haven’t been writing, that’s been happening. It’s when I come to the keyboard to write a blog post that I feel bored.
I have a lot to say about things, but when I write on here it doesn’t feel the same as when I do my creative work.
So here goes, I have a few things out with various places as well as a two novella’s I’ll be editing and submitting in the near future. If those fall through in submissions I may publish them anyway.
I feel good about my short story collection and I’ve recently changed the price for the ebook to $2.99.
It hasn’t gained traction and I may go over it with another round of edits and republish it. I’ve also dropped off on publicity for it, and that may the biggest determiner for its lack of success.
On the reading front, I’m reading Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.
I have never read westerns, but my older brother had a lot of Louis L’Amour books in his room when we were growing up. He was loved the whole cowboy thing, but it was never my thing. It’s been a difficult book to get through. I haven’t been reading much outside my own genre and I know why I’ve struggled reading it.
On another front of reading, my wife and I recently read, Goddess of Filth by V. Castro. This was not a book I would have bought, but there was a lot of buzz around it in the horror community on Instagram as well as Twitter. It came in our Nightworms book package and it was phenomenal.
I don’t like leaving this blog sitting as I found a lot of people that need help through Transcendental Meditation. I continue to practice TM and will for the rest of my life.
The blog may still be here and I’m going to make a run at doing more with it, even if it is only once a week.
Have a pleasant rest of your week.
