What’s New Wednesday: October

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any updates. I had a great time at YumaCon a couple weeks ago. I sold more books there than at any other convention. My bookmarks also sold very well. I still have two more conventions before the year is over. Later this month, I’ll be part of the vendor section of the Tucson TerrorFest. They tried this vendor convention part of the TerrorFest in 2019 and it was successful so they’re bringing it back. You can learn more details on their website about the film festival and the vendors. It’s happening on Oct 23 and 24 here in Tucson, AZ.

Also happening in Tucson, the TusCon Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Convention is doing it’s 48th year. That’s a long time. I will have a table at that convention as well. I’ll be selling bookmarks and copies of my short horror stories collection The Morbid Museum. I’ll have a couple other items as well. Come by and say hi. I hope to have my first full length novel finished by the middle of next year so I can have it for sale at all the conventions next year. Of course, if you’re unable to make it to either of these events, you can always purchase my works online. I hope you’re all doing well and I hope to see some of you at the next convention.

Coffee and Contemplation: Writing Updates

I wanted to take the time to give all my readers a quick update on some of my projects. In the fiction realm, since I’ve been writing some smaller pieces to post on this blog I’m behind on finishing my novel. No surprise there. I still have about 15 chapters to write but I keep getting more ideas for short stories to include on this blog. I want more content that doesn’t involve searching for holidays to talk about. It’ll happen eventually. The important thing is I’m still writing and don’t plan on quitting. I’ll find my groove at some point.

Moving on, in the poetry realm, I have two small books (or chapbooks) that are ready to go. One of them is complete and all I need to do is choose a publish date and start taking steps. The other has a Halloween theme. I want to find an artist for illustrations and publish around September or October 2021. We’ll see how things go. I haven’t written any new poetry since I completed these projects. I plan to focus more on specific themes for my collections. I think readers of poetry will find more enjoyment from smaller books with more focused ideas.

With the nonfiction posts on this blog, I hope to find other things to write about beyond quirky holidays. I plan to keep the Wacky Wednesday segment with holidays because it is a bit fun to learn about what foods are celebrated. But I want to expand the ideas I share on this blog. I haven’t put much thought into it for now, but something will spark my interest and new content will arise. Will you keep reading for that long? I hope so. As always, I’m open to suggestions. Leave a comment or shoot me a message. I’m curious to see how long I can keep this thing going.
