JULY 2016 – Been a bit of a lull in the action of late, which is not such a bad thing. Lazy days of Summer have arrived and along with it a slow-down in productivity. Know it won’t last and the crisp reminder of the months to come will hit hard when the school year starts again. For now though, more trips to the beach (which have been few and far between for me this month I’m disappointed to report), afternoons lost reading a book, and time out on the water is where you’ll find a fellow such as myself.
Received some really good news from the store Books on the Square in Providence, RI that had graciously agreed to carry copies of my first book (The Adventures of August Winter and the Blackstone Academy). They wrote me to say that they had sold the copies in stock and that they wanted more for the coming season to have in the store. I was thrilled to hear this and will absolutely deliver more copies, likely this coming week if I have time. They are tremendously generous with authors and I’m so appreciative of them being the first store to carry my book!
Myself and my editor have taken a short vacation from work on the new book (though in truth it is very much still on my mind, guess you can only take a break from it to a certain extent). Will be back in action with it shortly, as the other big news for me is that I’ll be moving very shortly. Which has (as you might guess) eaten up a vast amount of my time lately in preparation and practice. Moving furniture, boxing stuff up, blah, blah, blah, haha. My desk is likely going to be the last thing that goes so that I can keep being creative.
Hope all of you have had a great Summer thus far and I’ll look forward to our next correspondence.
