A General Update

Cthulhu's Car Park

In what I would probably describe as a fit of insanity, I decided to bite the bullet at the beginning of
July and set up to publish a story I'd just started by September.  I was tired of waiting, tired of perfecting, and tired of my current project, so I hopped on Amazon and well...

Okay, so in another bout of insanity, I decided that I was going to cut my deadline even shorter, and shoot for August 20th, Lovecraft's birthday.

Currently, I am finishing up the first draft of the manuscript.  In the next few weeks, I'm going to edit it, get some feedback and then format and finish up the paperback cover design.  I'm doing almost all of it, aside from the illustrations, which my husband is doing.

Yeah, there's a good chance I'm crazy.

But, anyway, Cthulhu's Car Park, available for pre-order on Amazon right the heck now.  Tentative release date is now August 20th, but it's going to read September 6th ('cause I'm not totally, totally nuts yet).  It'll also be available to read for free through the Kindle Unlimited program.


Some authors like to post videos on Youtube, talking about books and writing but that didn't really feel like my kind of thing, so instead, I've begun streaming my writing live on Twitch.

I don't have a solid schedule right now, since it's summer vacation, but I try to get on every weekday between 9 and 11 in the morning, with some nighttime and weekend streams thrown in occasionally.  I usually announce these on my Twitter account.

Patreon and Ko-fi

As you may have noticed on my sidebar, I've started a Ko-fi account.  It's pretty much an online tip-jar, in case you enjoy these blog posts, or anything else I happen to be doing.  Obviously, tips are never required, but always welcome.  I would love to be able to afford a better cover for my book, or professional paperback formatting, or hey, even to turn my Netflix account back on for a month.  If you feel like you want to contribute, please feel free to click that link at any time.

I've also seriously revamped my Patreon account, offering better reward tiers including suggesting books for me to review, a monthly short story, or getting help with your own writing projects.  Once I have more books out, I'll offer a few, more reader-oriented rewards.  Feel free to check it out and offer recommendations as to what you'd like to see me offer.  It's always a work in progress.
