Whoops, so, it’s been a busy couple of months and I haven’t updated much. So a couple of quick notes.
Genius Loci is doing well. We’re sorting out payments, getting rewards and art sorted and underway, and I’ve done all but the copy-edit. I’ll be sending off the manuscript to my local print shop in the next couple of days, since I do much better with physical copies for proofing. I’m also working on a backer update with all of this and more.
Other anthologies: the Exalted, Tropes, and unannounced tie-in anthologies are all in some form of movement, and I will hopefully have info soon.
Realmwalker Publishing Group: The main group will be at Omaha ComicCon, but author Dave Atwell and I will be at ConCarolinas. We’ve got a ton of other great stuff going on, so I look forward to lots of announcements.
Writing: Just turned over my first comic script! Galen Dara and I are collaborating on a weird, nasty little deviation on Beauty and the Beast for an anthology, and I’m looking at pitching some more. I’m also working on a couple of RPG projects that I hope to announce soon. The novel is still underway, and I’ve got a second one roughed out (two totally different projects, yay for self-challenges!).
Clients: I am booked solid, and will only be accepting consultation requests.

Home. Weather and energy willing, a couple of weeks of intense horse-training to get the boys ridable again, getting the ranch back into shape, the usual vaccinations, hoof care, dentistry, and vet-work for the herd, and rock-climbing with my best friend. Nice, relaxing time.
Will also be making a trip to the Bay Area, and a trip to the coast for a few days offline to write and recharge, so again, let me know ASAP if you want to be on my schedule.
