Many of my friends and fans have noticed that I'm not on line much anymore, and that I haven't discussed my writing like I usually do. Over the past four months, I have gone through some significant and life-altering events. Some of these events were of my own choosing, others I had no control over (like the death of my pet Woody and the near-death of my mother). After awhile, this perfect storm of stresses took its toll, and I rapidly reached the breaking point. One of the things that suffered during this time was the writing.
I am happy to note that most of these stresses have been resolved, and slowly but surely I'm getting back in the swing of things. This week I started the final re-write of The Walking Monster, finished the first draft of a short story from the zombie's point of view titled "I Am Zombie," and had a burst of inspiration for the next novel. I've been involved with Permuted Press in designing the cover art for Rotter World. I am also working on a new webpage, which is taking longer than anticipated since I am not the most computer savvy person in the world, and will soon post my reading of Rotter World from the HorrorFind weekend.
Thank you all for your patience and support. It's been my family (furry and human) and friends who have helped me through this tough patch. The best is yet to come.
