...it's because I'm writing.
There are basically no exceptions to that. When I'm trying to finish a book, I almost always lock myself in a room and hammer it out for a few weeks at a stretch. Especially when I'm writing it quickly, as I am with Soulsmith.
Good news is, the book is almost finished! I'm trying to get it done this week, so that it can be washed and waxed for its incoming September release!
As many of you have noticed, while I've been taking Soulsmith days off of social media, I haven't released a short story this month. It's true; I wanted to finish the book before I wrote a new short story, but it's taken about two weeks longer than I anticipated. Fortunately, I'd built that margin into my release estimate; otherwise I would have said August instead of September and I would have to prostrate myself before you as I pushed the release date back.
See? I'm learning.
So...short story before the end of the month, Soulsmith on time for September, and you're all awesome!
Thanks for reading!
