New Year? New Plans

by on Dec.31, 2016, under General

Hey everyone, this is a periodic update, with much better news than last time. I have a new home, new job, and hopefully, we should be aiming for a Spring release of Witch Hunt! It’s longer than I would have liked coming, but it’s about nearly done and ready to be put into a level of post-production soon. There should be a pretty cover coming in February or so, hopefully, even!

News Update: Not as Happy as I’d Like It To Be

by on Aug.25, 2016, under General

Hey folks,

I love you all, so I should probably give you a much-needed update. Book 3 is nearly done. It’s going to be called Witch Hunt. I’ve really enjoyed writing it. There’s just a few problems going on right now, that are preventing me from getting the last bits of it done.

The first problem is that I lost my job in April, due to the business I worked at having to move to another city and downsize due to losing their lease. I’ve been out of work for four months now, and as of this moment I don’t have any way to pay for a new cover, an editor, or any of the things I would need to make this book as good as I believe a finished project needs to be for me to sell it.

The second is that I’m presently in a pretty bad place. I don’t have a permanent place to live, and there are problems that are cropping from that like mental health that are keeping Witch Hunt from being finished completely to a point where, even if I had the resources, I could get it completed into the level of material I would want you guys to read.

If everything shook out right, I would be able to say that this book would be out in fall, and I would have a side novel, a shapeshifter project, that I would be able to release as a new standalone in the winter. However, as it stands, I can’t say for sure when I would be able to release either of them. Right now, I need a permanent day job and a new place to live, and unfortunately neither market has been kind to me in that regard.

I’ll try to keep a more detailed progression of things from now on, and be more attentive to this space. I’m sorry for the relative radio silence on my part.

Regards,

Justen.
