Oh, dear. It's the end of May....YIKES!

Greetings from the depths of where ever the hell I've been residing. I thought I would fire off a quick May post since I am working on the blog anyway. As you all can tell, I've changed the background on it and fixed some minor cosmetic things that have bugged me since I did the clusterfck I caused in what I want to say February, so that's one less thing that annoys me. But there are more things I want to do with it, and I shall since I'm learning code to beef-up my resume and legitimize my coding knowledge.

All right, I am done talking nerdy to you. Website is still undergoing its transformation which is due to me loading everything to Gumroad and Smashwords. Once I have those books uploaded, the book page will go live and I will be ending my newsletter. Updates, news, and all that jazz will be distributed through my Gumroad page, blog, and website. You can sign up here to get updates from my Gumroad page. With Gumroad I have the option of making posts as well as sending out emails to followers when I do post, so it'll be like killing two birds with one stone. For those who are currently on the subscriber list for my newsletter, you will have to sign up for the Gumroad newsletter if you want to keep receiving updates. I'll send one final newsletter before shutting it down.

At some point, I will be starting a subscription service through Gumroad once all this is said and done. It's going to come in the form of a library, where those who sign up for it will have unlimited access to it. I'm still in the pre-planning phase of that, but that's where I'm headed next once the website is updated and everything is live on Gumroad.

I am editing the hell out of Fate Unseen. That's actually what I'm hopping back into once this post is finished. I'm getting closer to the first exciting incident, so I'm anxious to get there. Still a long book, but well worth it. I'm hoping once I get to the middle of it, I can start carving out some non-essential parts. As one of my beta readers pointed out, I'll cut out some of the banter, but none of the spiciness. Looking forward to getting down this first hill of the editing roller coaster because it has been a long time coming.

Still outlining the next Detective Miller book, but I think once I have finished editing Fate Unseen, I'm going to jump back into Adventures of Swift and get that edited. Looks like a year of editing for me. Fcking yikes! But I've been sitting on some of these project for quite some time as some of you know. My B.

I hope we're all enjoying the gradual descent into a post-covid life. While I am vaccinated, I'm still wearing my mask and staying as far as possible from people, but I'm going to make the most of this hot vaxxed summer. Isn't that what the kids are calling it?

Anyway, hope everyone enjoys the rest of May. Don't forget to sign up for the Gumroad newsletter and remember to review the indie and self-pubbed books you read. 

Until next time...
