Greetings, wary travelers. I know it’s supposed to be weary travelers, but this is Unsafe Haven. Wary is appropriate.
I have a hodge-podge post for you today.
National Novel Writing Month is over…for the vast majority of writers. In December, I’m trying to keep the words flowing. Meaning I will still be fairly scarce on the forums and Twitter and my favorite blogs. Feel free to email me if you need me.
I did not live up to my promise to release a fantasy or urban fantasy story in November, mostly because I was so busy writing that it was suddenly the end of the month, and I hadn’t commissioned a cover. I’ll try to remedy that in December and figure out where to slip in the extra release so that I don’t miss the intended release date for the collection I’m planning for February of 2012.
Fair warning: the pen name project is still growing like Cartman’s Trapper Keeper, so that has to be my priority for awhile. To further complicate matters, I’m launching a small press months (if not years) earlier than I had intended. There’s just way too much interest to let it wait.
My approach to Unsafe Haven is also going to change a bit. When it comes right down to it, I’m not blogging here to sell you books. I’m here to have some fun and chat about my projects and maybe share some snippets and post Youtube videos of my favorite new music or anything else I think is cool. So, basically, Unsafe Haven has just become my living room. Not my social platform. Not a branding tool. But a place for people to come visit me and have a decaf Americano and find out if I’m listening to or reading anything good and what cool Norse myth I’m currently toying with for the norn series.
I’m also open to suggestions. This is an "exploring my blog identity" period.
Today I shall end with a gritty garage rock song that never should have been allowed on a Twilight soundtrack. They used something like four or five seconds of it in the train wreck called New Moon. Waste of a good song.
