The Month of Confusion

May. Maybe not. Who knows?

Man, this has been a strange one. I ducked out of an Imagicopter event to take care of personal business, but Imagicopter continued to insert itself at odd times. We've decided that, before the third birthday, we need to cull the herd, as it were, and review the active members. I have mixed feelings about this, as the idea behind Imagicopter was always to help authors and artists promote their work, but if we are the only ones doing so, without the author/artist participating, then the public gets the idea Imagicopter is a representing agency, and that is something we cannot afford. So, our ranks may be significantly reduced come June. The good thing about that, though, is that the remaining members will be the people who see their art as something they personally want to promote, and are serious about their work.

I have been spending a load of time writing and have sent a story to the Southern Haunts anthology for consideration. The submission for Dreams of Steam II is still in the works and I have been frantically trying to get it ready before the deadline at the end of the month. Not sure I'll make that one.

The High Kings novella is now available from Sam's Dot Publishing. Many thanks to Tyree Campbell, Mitch Bentley, and J. Alan Erwine for their support in presenting and promoting the book.

Expect some news about Angelkiller very soon. Deity, the last of the Thran novels triad, has moved to the front burner, with the second Angelkiller series novel close behind. I never thought you could break a sweat from just writing, but...

Anyway, I have another three novels, unrelated to previous revelations, in outline and ready to join the queue once Boathouse is done. Including a long threatened vampire novel. Hopefully, vampires won't have passed from vogue by the time I get around to them.

Look for me at Duckon 20! It should be a lot of fun. Oh, and Happy Towel Day! Remember the genius of Douglas Adams and thanks for all the fish!
