So I glanced at my blog today, and realized that I hadn't posted anything since last November. Wow.
The reason might be obvious--the whole world's been cancelled.
Okay, not the whole world. But between Tucson Comic-Con and the holidays, I was mostly focused on family stuff, including helping Marcy deal with lingering issues from her accident last year (but she made it through Comic-Con like the truly courageous trooper that she is!). Then, we had a busy spring lined up, with a trip to Alberta, Canada, for a weekend session mostly for indigenous youth, the always amazing Tucson Festival of Books, LepreCon, and...
Well, you know. Pandemic. Whatcha gonna do?
Now, cons have been cancelled into the fall. Publishers are pushing back a lot of their book releases. Lots of bookstores haven't reopened yet, and those that have are implementing new safety measures. We're moving into a different world, and we're all trying to find our footing.
So there hasn't really been any news to report. I've been writing like mad--I've finished a big book, that I'm very proud of and hope to have news on it soonish. And I'm just about done with revisions for a BIG book--the biggest I've ever written, by a long shot. I'm hoping to be able to share news about that one soon, too.
There's also some comics stuff on the near horizon, so I'll be sharing that in the coming days or weeks at most.
We're staying safe, and hope that you are, too. Like most of the world, we're mourning those who've been lost to the pandemic--some of those losses have hit very close to home. And we're mourning the continuing tragedy of racism in all its forms. We hope that our fellow humans, black, brown, red, yellow, white, and every shade in between, can realize that we're all brothers and sisters, we all share this one Earth, and we have to take care of one another, and the planet.
More soon, I promise.
