Self-publishing and the avoidance of cooties

As many of you already know, I’ve recently finished my final draft of Chosen, the first volume of an LGBT fantasy series I’ve been working on since I was a wee gel of fifteen. And while considering agents and publishers as of late, I’ve found myself rather seriously thinking about… Self-publishing. I know, I know. But hear me out. Now, I know that self-publishing sometimes … Continue reading Self-publishing and the avoidance of cooties

Art!

I’m pleased to announce that the first round of Chosen artwork has arrived! And…okay, most of it is my own and thus is imbued with a certain lack of what one might call “artistic talent,” but meh, details. So, yes! ART! (Or whatever we’re calling it.) First up, we have a pencil sketch of Silas Phelps, the sweet-faced bully whose hobbies are being rich, coming … Continue reading Art!

So, yes, as for the reasons behind my lengthy hiatus, I have no excuses except that Chicago has been experiencing an unusual stretch of gorgeous weather, and thus I’ve been somewhat distracted by strange feelings of optimism and delusions that the world may not be such an awful place after … Continue reading Sunshine does strange things to the human mind.

Red Lobster > Gay People?

Forgive me, WordPress, for I have sinned. It’s been three weeks since my last blog post. In my defense, I’ve been using my time away from you to write!  (And to watch videos on Hulu and add to my gif collection. But mostly to write.) For the past few weeks, I’ve been hard at work on Chosen, which some may remember as my Gay Fantasy Epic … Continue reading Red Lobster > Gay People?
