Gears are slowly moving forward again.
Posted by Chris
Just a quick site and project update. Site wise I’m thinking about switching up the layout and getting a newsletter actually going, right now the collection process is somewhat manual still, and I’ve been learning lots of coding at my day job so I might be able to automate all that sometime in the future so I can actually start the newsletter and keep up with it. Lack of ability to keep up with it is why it’s never started yet, and I do apologize for that.
Project wise my first update is: I’ve started seeking out interest for getting some new cover art for The Sage of Hytrae trilogy again. My artistic abilities are not great, and even trying to get AI to fancy up my “doodles” turns into spaghetti so finding an artist interested in doing some commission work seems to be the right call still. I’ve not settled on anyone yet, and am still looking around, my hope is to at minimum get one new cover art this year, if not all three.
The new series in Hytrae has been getting new writing done in it this year, just not as regularly as I’d like. I’ve been doing more depth building work in the background as well as writing chapters in the first book. I’m hoping the results will be richer stories, deeper characters (and locations), and marginally longer page counts for each book in the new series.
I know this is taking forever, I doubt this annoys anyone more than it annoys me. If I started blocking time off the way I did for the first trilogy I’d get it written quickly, but I’m trying to balance more in life these days than I was then. If I can find an artist to work with, that will help out the existing books get noticed, which in turn will put more pressure on me to finish the next projects. I work best under pressure and I’m only able to self apply pressure in short spurts. So while progress is happening it’s not as quick as I’d like. Hopefully the ball will get moving here soon and I’ll get you all a better update soon!
As always, may God bless you and keep you.
