Sorry that I have been absent the past two months. Lots of reasons, mostly battling some mental blocks. Not writers block, but motivation issues, I could use taking some of my own advice there for sure. Mental health is so difficult to manage at times.
Anyway, I’m hoping to get the newsletter up and going soon, but something has caused me to not do it yet. The Original forums has been attacked by bots, I know due to repeat entries, added messages, not using anything close to a name in the name field, and such. I’ve added a drop down menu that you have to change, so I’m resetting the list so if you have signed up before please do so again. Of course, If you gave me your email in person via an event, then I still have your email and you do not have to resubmit.
Writing has slowed down, I’ve been doing some creative writing but nothing that could be published (more fun fan-fiction type stuff, nothing adult though, sheesh). I hope to pick up again soon with a few different ideas, mostly the title I’ve announced I’m working on already, and some Hytrae related stories and structure. I hopefully can get some more info out soon to everyone.
I do have plans of making my way to a con of some kind early next year. No decisions have been made on which one, and I am still looking around. If anyone has some suggestions please leave a comment down below. Doesn’t have to be a place to setup a booth or something at, just something related to the scifi/fantasy genre in some way. comic/game/anime doesn’t much matter to me, I haven’t been to a proper convention in several years and really need to get back into them.
I’m afraid that’s all the updates I have today, hopefully I can get my tail in gear and start the weekly blogs back up in some capacity.
Until next time, may God bless you and keep you.
I hope everyone is staying dry, towards the end of this summer. I haven’t made a blog post in a couple of weeks, and I am sorry about that. My prayers go out to any and all affected by the current hurricane affecting the eastern US states.
This month is a bit crazy, so lets go ahead and hop into it.
In just one week I will be setup at our local street fair in Peebles Ohio, Old Timers Days. If your from around the area, or passing through stop in and say hello! OTD runs from sept 12 – 15th this year, and as always they rumor it could be the last one. I will be selling my books, signing books, handing out new bookmarks & informational flyers about my books, and having a raffle opportunity to get the trilogy and a limited run tee-shirt. The shirt in the raffle is sized Adult XL, so be aware of that. This raffle will be the only way to get this shirt and I will be shipping to anywhere in the United States for the winner. The drawling will take place Monday, the 16th, and I will be sending the shirt, books, and such through the mail. The sign up at the event will have an address line just for this reason.
Why am I giving a shirt away? Well I’m glad you asked!
I will be starting a newsletter that will run once a month. It will contain highlights from the website, plans for upcoming events, book updates, and sneak peeks of upcoming titles. It might sound similar to the monthly updates here on the website and it kinda is. The newsletter however will be more details, and will be the distribution of future excerpts from future novels.
Edit: Removed hoping it would reduce spam bots.
I will be adding a new page to the home screen that will let you sign up for the newsletter.
As crazy as all this is, that’s not all.
At the bottom of this post I am showing off the new “logo” for The Sage of Hytrae Trilogy. I will be using this new logo on related merchandise which currently is just the tee shirts, bookmarks, and some bumper stickers that will also be at the OTD booth. I will be posting Pictures of all those things on here as I receive them this month.
Wow its a crazy month, on the back half of September I should be back to posting weekly blogs and using the monthly update to share news, of course the new newsletter will be starting in October.
Anyway, here is the artwork as promised:
Until next time, and remember Don’t feed the Jacobs!
I hope this post finds you in good health and spirits. I am planning on giving some updates on the second book in The Sage of Hytrae series soon. In planing with that, I thought some people might like to receive email’s when we have news being posted. So below is a form that you can fill out that will add you to my news mailing list. Feel free to add comments or special requests in the comment box. Thanks, and I hope you have a great week!
