It has been a while since I posted something on WordPress. That’s because I do NOT have the tech skills for this site. And that is my fault, not that of WordPress.
So, to update; the April 28th book launch went well. Not everyone who said they would attend did, but I expected that. I did two readings and they both were well received. Everyone in attendance had a good time. There were even some nice finger foods, and libations. AND, I sold a few books!
I still am. Selling a book here-and-there, I mean.
Also, and this is important, I have moved from the Barnhartvale area of Kamloops to the North Shore, which will allow me easier access to all the services that I now require as a senior, such as easier access to a physician, shopping malls with supermarkets, drug stores, optometrists, etc.
The move was difficult and exhausting, but at my age and with my health issues, not unexpected. Now, in the middle of June, I’m feeling as though I am making this suite my own, you know? I daresay over the next few months I will be doing some finessing in the ergonomics department to make daily life in my suite easier for me, but all the grunt work has been done, thank heaven/the universe/whatever.
This weekend I intend/hope to get back into “Weapon”, the sequel to “Thaumaturge”. I will scrutinize the Prologue and the eleven chapters I wrote for it before I became preoccupied/obsessed with self-editing for “Thaumaturge” for publication. When I’m happy with them, I will move on with the rest of the story, with new characters, and those already familiar because of “Thaumaturge”. I anticipate that Caritas will be edgier in the sequel because she now knows her enemy better (modern-day slavers), and these antagonists will be nastier because they are life-long, career criminals, not newbies to the life.
