If you’re stopping by this blog after a lengthy absence, you’re in good company. It has been a while since I’ve been by here, too. It turns out that writing both a new manuscript and frequent blog updates is pretty hard to do and, when forced to make a choice between the two, I have definitely opted for my novel. Over the last several months my laptop and I have been spending a lot of quality time together, and at this point I am happy to say that I have a manuscript that I am pretty proud of. It still needs to be polished, and I am working on getting trustworthy feedback and making revisions, but I am also starting to emerge from my “writing cave.” As I start to ramp up towards querying, I have been working on setting up a website for myself and giving the blog a better look.

I’ve been reading some tremendously exciting new books recently, and have found a few new authors that I’m really excited about. In the next few weeks I hope to put up posts about them, as I know I am always grateful for recommendations of new fantasy books to read. In the meantime, please poke around the website a bit! It is definitely still a work in progress, but it is great to have you here, and I’m excited about getting it fully up and running before too long. Take care!
