Burned Out, But Still Going Strong: My March Writing Update

I’m happy March is almost over. This month was too much. And that’s not to say it was all bad – there was lots of good stuff going on. But there was just too much of everything. Looking back at my calendar, there were only 4 days in the entire month where I did not have some sort of plan/meeting/work goal/hangout/etc. But out of those 4 days, at least 2 of them ended up getting filled with spontaneous last minute plans.

I need a nap.

But the most exciting and rewarding plan of the month was the publication of Coping Mechanism and Other Disturbing Stories. I originally planned to send this collection out into the world last year but had to take an unexpected hiatus from publishing. It pained me to put this book on hold because some of my favourite short stories I’ve ever written are in this collection. Thank you so much to everyone who supported me throughout the long, drawn out publication of these stories. And thank you to everyone who’s bought a copy of the book already! If you like it (or even if you don’t) please leave leave a review on Goodreads or your favourite eBook retailer’s website.

Coping Mechanism isn’t the only project I’ve been working on this past month. In fact, I’m ready to publish my next story! However, the release date for that one won’t be until the end of June. Make sure to sign up to my newsletter by April 1st because – and this is no joke – I will be sharing the cover art of the upcoming “Cold Cuts and Cigarettes”. And in my May newsletter (yes, I’m planning that far ahead), there will be a chance to snag a FREE advance copy!

But wait, there’s more!

If you’re a regular visitor to my website, you’ve probably noticed that Farm to Table has been listed as “coming soon” for… well, too long. I have done so many edits and re-writes on that project, but I finally got it all the way to the beta reading stage last summer. And then I put it on hold. I adore the story and the creepy community I’ve created, but something has been missing that I could never quite put my finger on.

Starting last month, I shifted gears and started brainstorming how I could elevate it. I’ve been reading fiction, and now non-fiction, books to research different styles and facts that I can use to get Farm to Table to where I want it. If you’ve had a peek and my Goodreads profile, you may have some guesses as to what those books are. After I finish my research, I’m going to dive back in to the re-writes before sending the novella back out to beta readers. So if you want a chance at being one of those beta readers, keep an eye on my newsletter for updates.

So stay tuned for updates! There will be plenty of creepy reads to come.

Happy reading!
