It’s been awhile since my last post. Thankfully, I am back. I took a short writing hiatus with the arrival of my mini me. But now that things are getting back into a routine, I am back to writing. I look forward to see how being a mother may change my writing (hoping to add a new perspective without losing the horror/dark literary touch). I’m also excited to share all my favorite books with my daughter and hope that books are as big a part of her life as they are for both her mother and father.
I do have an exciting upcoming publication. My story Toxoplasmosis was picked up. It is the first publication where the editors have asked me to keep it a secret until they have notified all other authors of their decision. All I can say now is that it will be available through Kindle and print. Pretty exciting stuff. Official announcement coming soon.
I’m also still playing with getting my novel published (that’s right, I wrote a book). Originally I was shopping for agents but now I am looking into smaller independent publishing groups. After all, not looking to make it rich, just want the work published.
Other than that, I am back to writing and attempting to time manage as much as possible. If I can crank out a few hundred words while the baby sleeps, progress has been made.
Maternity has been great for catching up on reading. The lastest book I finished was BIRD BOX by Josh Malerman (soon to be a major motion picture later this fall staring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich). If you haven’t read it, check it out. I’m interested to see what they are going to do with the film as the true horror lies in what you cannot see – obviously difficult to show on film.
That’s it for now.
As always, thank you for reading my work.
