I recently purchased a new laptop that I will be able to use for my primary work computer. It's powerful enough to handle PaintTool SAI and has enough memory to hold all my large files.

Soon, I'll be able to pull my old hard drives out and get my work off those and onto this new system. Once that's done, I'm looking forward to getting back to work!

Things on the horizon: finish two book covers - one for myself and another for a client, start editing The Fall of the Cicadas - the much anticipated second book in the Seasonal Insanity series, and work more on the companion novel to Fragile Bones - Michael's story.

A lot of things are in the works over the next several months; I hope you're as excited about them as I am.

My new experimental serial, For Thy Peace, My Soul, has begun. Each "chapter" will be posted every Monday evening on Wattpad.

This story will run for 52 weeks, I've got 40 weeks available right now, although 50 have been written, (they're currently locked away on my dead desktop), I'm confident they'll be recovered before 40 weeks is up. For Thy Peace, My Soul is a diary type story told from the point of view of a sin-eater. It's a story of tragedy, horror, pain, and ultimately, love.

Exclusive to visitors of my site: starting this week; read half a week ahead on the Bonus Materials page.

I'm excited to be working on an experiment I hope to reveal in a few months. I'm working as diligently as the words will let me. An exclusive hint to website visitors - it will be a weekly serial spanning exactly one year. The experimental part, I'll hold close for the time being.

I've been challenged to write five short m/m romances this year! Can I do it? I'm giving it a good go. The first one is about 50% into the first draft. I hope to have it finished by the end of March. No title as yet, but I will keep all information current as things progress. Of course, five new titles means five new covers. I better work quickly!

The Fall of the Cicadas is on break again. It's a great story, but there's a lot of work to do before I can even think of publishing, so until something wiggles free, I can only push myself so hard on that project.

Check back often to get the latest on current projects, release dates, and new material.

Lots of things are in the works for 2013. The website overhaul not the least of them.

The Fall of the Cicadas is in first round edits. I hope for a Fall release. The next in the Seasonal Insanity series (working series title), The Winter of the Birds, first draft is 95% complete.

I also plan to continue working on the companion novel to Fragile Bones. Shattered Bones (working title) is Michael's story. It tells of his past and overlaps with Nathan's account. Following in its predecessor's footsteps, this is another unflinching trek downward into the darkness. With a story such as this, I'm not pushing the first draft, so don't expect a release date any time soon. I will, however, post excerpts on occasion.

More book covers are also coming down the pipe later this year.
