April 2023 Dispatch
March ended on a really rough week as we lost our doggo of seven and a half years. I haven’t been on social media much as I don’t really have a lot of useful things to say about it, but what I have been posting has been over on Instagram, where I always posted dog pics, and as a bonus you can see our gallery of pictures of him there as well. He was a huge part of our lives, and the best boy we could have hoped for. He is and will continue to be greatly missed.
I’ve kept working on the Patreon stories but have stalled on Wolftown 2 for that reason. I had a buffer for the Robin Hood fanfic so I was able to get that part up on time, and working has been a good distraction, so I’m splitting time between that and the next chapter of Ty the Knot, which will go up on the 10th (I’m hoping).
As we get back into a working pattern, we have some big plans for the year. My partners are going to help with some projects that I haven’t had the time or expertise to organize on my own, which is very exciting. I’ll have more on those as they come up, so keep an eye out.
Books: Nothing new on the audiobook front. Return From Divalia is available everywhere now. If you have read and liked it, writing a review is one of the most helpful things you can do for it, and it’s free! (It doesn’t have to be on Amazon, but that’s still where most people go for their books.)
Other upcoming releases:
The Price of Thorns: Scheduled for summer 2023 (AC). In a fantasy world where stories are woven into the fabric of magic and life, Nivvy the thief is hired by a mysterious woman, and this job will change his life in ways he could never have anticipated.
Squeak Thief: Complete but not scheduled yet, maybe late 2023. A rich mouse hires a fox thief to steal from his own family, but the job quickly spirals out of control.
In progress: Robin Hood fanfic and Ty Game sequel (on Patreon), Wolftown 2, untitled fantasy world project.
We finished The Last of Us and loved it. Great storytelling and acting all the way through.
It was so good that I looked up the showrunner and found that he also wrote and directed Chernobyl, so I’ve started watching that. It’s also great, and also fairly grim and devastating in parts. Jared Harris and Stellan Skarsgaard are terrific.
I watched CODA (Apple), last year’s Best Picture, and it was fantastic. Deserves all the awards. Made me cry toward the end.
