Another month is gone, and so I figure it's about time for a quick update on what's going on in my world lately.
First, it is now November, which means NaNoWriMo is officially underway. I'll be working on my coming of age novel, tentatively titled What Sleeps Beneath. After the first session last night, I'm already over 3k words in, so it's off to a fantabulous start. For the record, the progress meter is showing a completion based on the projected final word count, and not the 50k expected for NaNoWriMo. If you want my progress on that, check out my profile under JohnDQuick on the official NaNoWriMo site.
Also, my upcoming short story collection Three Shots and a Chaser is still available for pre-order at only $0.99 for the rest of this month. Once it releases on December 1, the price goes up to $1.99, so make sure to use the links on the right side of this page and grab your copy early!
Additionally, there's some exciting things afoot for Consequences, things I can't really discuss yet. I'll just say there's still more to come from it, and leave it at that. Feel free to grab a copy if you haven't already; the links are conveniently provided for you on the right side of the page.
I did end up having to take a two-week break from the writing thing around the beginning of October while I dealt with a pretty rough case of bronchitis. I am happy to say I'm mostly recovered from that now, at least to the point I'm past the utter exhaustion that seemed to accompany it. It's been a little rough getting back into the swing of things, but it's finally starting to click again, so there should be much more to come from me in the months ahead.
Also, there's some things I'm starting to put together for next year, both related to the impending release of The Journal of Jeremy Todd and in just building my brand. I'm beginning to find my voice, so keep watching for the launch of a newsletter (probably monthly, though I'm still planning this), and possibly something a little more... let's say "vocal". Obviously I'll give more details as they arise.
That's pretty much all I've got. Keep watching for more reviews as I start to get caught up on my backlog, and hopefully I'll have some other things posted on here, some things that have been gestating in my brain for a while now, soon.
Keep watching, and thanks for all the support!
