State of the Things, October 2013

Whoa. I haven’t done a State of the Things since February. Stuff has happened since then, which you’ve probably figured out.

So, where am I at?

The Fire Children is done, done, done. I’ve had amazing, helpful feedback, and am now in the nail-biting phase with it.

Since the last State of the Things, I’ve done some freelance RPG writing. If you like Trail of Cthulhu, my adventure for the forthcoming Mythos Expeditions anthology is up for playtesting now.

Keep your fingers crossed that a couple of other games I’ve written for will be coming out soon. Linkery when I have it!

YA Scream Queens just launched, and I’m on the roster with a bunch of other neat writerly types. Go check it out!

On to the active projects list, then!

  • Ghost Town: This wasn’t on the list last time because Night Owls was still out on submission. Here it is, making its debut on the list of stuff I’m writing, woooo! It’s book two in the series, and well, I don’t want to say much more about it because spoilers.
  • Adrift: On the list post-Ghost Town. Looking like I’ll get started on it after the first of the year. When not playing video games until my eyes bleed the week between Christmas and New Year’s, I’ll finally be reading Nine Princes in Amber and Master and Commander as prep.

I’d like to set aside more time for some short fiction as well. This list hasn’t changed much since the last time:

  • “Wolves”
  • “The Reunion Tour of Billy James and the Flamethrowers, or How Billy Got the Band Back Together”
  • “The Desert in Fimbulwinter”

I wouldn’t be surprised if any of those three decide they’d like to be something longer. Seems to happen with me a lot — both Gid and The Fire Children were only supposed to run 5,000 words or so. I’ll worry about it when I get there.

Stuff! Things! And now back to writing. Because I’m totally not cat-vacuuming by blogging. Nope.
