Alright so here’s another update since I apparently couldn’t be busy as heck.
Here’s a bit of honesty for you guys. A bit of midnight musings…
I struggle with considering my job as an author an actual job. In a sense. Continue reading My Struggle With Considering My Job A Job
If you follow me on Facebook you will have already known that both Dragons’ Myth books have been accepted into McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg! As shown above, the first book is now on the shelf! They are in the Prairie Writers section being sold for only $15*, or $13.50* as the Reader Reward price! *plus tax
This is a bit of a rambly post so bear with me!
The good news: As of yesterday, I’m done writing Emergent! Actually I think it was 3am this morning but anyway. I was aiming to be done by the end of July, so I’m ahead of schedule, which is great considering my laptop’s death caused some delays.
The bad news: After my laptop died, my desktop computer died too sometime after, which was about a week ago I believe. Luckily, I had been backing up my files every day so I didn’t lose any progress there. However, with no computer left, I figured Emergent’s publication would be delayed for who knew how long.
More good news: I have a Windows tablet. It sucked writing on it at first but after fiddling with it a bit, it’s definitely bearable, and that’s what I used to finish writing the third book.
More bad news: The tablet is quite old and slow, so I don’t think I’d be able to create the cover on it.
So, I’m feeling very antsy right now with not being able to work on the cover! Since I can’t work on that, I’m getting started on editing, but I’m very distracted since I keep wanting to work on the cover. I’m hoping to get my desktop fixed within a week. We’ll see if it works out that way. I also need to pick up something that I’ll be using for the main cover image. Won’t be able to do that until this weekend. If I can get my desktop fixed soon then Emergent should be out by beginning of September (have to account for the time it takes for proofs to get here and such). I’m so tempted to just do a random cover for now that the manufacturers supply just so I can order proofs already but I think that’d be a waste of money since I’d want to order more proofs when it’s got the official cover on it. Anywho, that’s all for now I think. I’ll probably not do another update on Emergent until it’s published just because I’m busy as heck.
Ciao for now!
I have openings for beta readers. Beta readers read through proofs (the books pre-publication), looking for errors (spelling, grammar, plot holes, etc.) and giving suggestions to help sentence structure and word flow. If you’re interested in becoming one, please read on for my guidelines. Continue reading Beta Reader Openings
To those who have been here since near the beginning, you’ll remember when I said goodbye to Instagram and Twitter. Well, I decided to reopen my accounts. I will be adding proper buttons where the Facebook one also is, but for now:
I’ll be mainly posting cute pictures of my cats and farm animals on Instagram, as well as nature photos, so if you like that kind of thing, follow me there.
I don’t think I’ll be using Twitter much so feel free to follow, but Facebook is still better for author-related stuff, with my site here being the best.
That’s all at the moment. Ciao for now!
Since the last update regarding books was way back in February, I figured it was time for another update! Continue reading A Delay With The Third Book
To anyone who has read any of my books, or to any who will in the future, please keep in mind that I’m always open to feedback, as long as it’s respectful of course! Whether you have something positive to say, or constructive criticism, I’m open to it and will happily listen.
This goes for finding any errors in my books as well, such as errors in spelling, grammar, etc.. Sometimes a few sneak past me and those helping me and make it into publication. If you come across an error, please contact me with the details, such as the book, page number, and paragraph.
I’m always looking to better my craft and getting feedback is one of the best ways to do that! Thank you in advance to any who help in either way.
Ciao for now!
To those who don’t remember or haven’t seen it yet, I posted about The Cat Express, my first ever Android game I developed and then published back in late 2018. So, the update is, that is hasn’t been on the Play Store for a couple months! It got taken down, and I just had to do a small thing to correct it so it could go back up, and I put it off for ages due to being caught up with other stuff. Anyway, it will be back on the Play Store hopefully next weekend, and after that I will continue doing regular updates to it to make it a better game. I will post an update here once it is back up and available for download!
Ciao for now!
UPDATE: As of the end of March, the game is back up on the Play Store.
What has happened to me?
My thoughts, so densely clouded.
My pain has gone, my heart is warm,
My sadness newly shrouded. Continue reading Minutes Become Days by Brian Reimer
