Just when things don’t seem to make any sense…

Creativity is a blessed gift, and it has the power to deliver messages far and wide in an irrevocable way. While the world seems to both fall apart and come together, let us not forget the gifts we have been given. We have the time now to communicate honestly, so let us do that.

How’s that for a bit of preamble, huh? I’m gearing up to self publish Sliver of Light, which is taking the form of a multi-volume series. No Smashwords this time, I will be publishing exclusively to Amazon, but I will be releasing samples and links to my Patreon where I will be sharing some of the process of cover art design. So… why the change?

Let’s just say that some guidance I’ve received on the matter has helped me to decide that for this series, self publishing would be the best way to get it out to the world. Does that reflect on the quality? That’s for you to decide, but I can assure you my very best effort is going into its production. That’s one of the reasons I want there to be a physical edition option available.

Nothing I’ve written before has felt as tangible as this world and the people in it. This wasn’t one of my spur of the moment murder mysteries, but something much deeper. It is a manifestation of true inspiration the likes of which I have not known before. I have learned so much, and in some ways had to face myself in order to brave the events contained therein. It’s a good sign when the story you’re writing makes you dig deep in order to see it to fruition.

Over the next month I’ll be posting character teasers, and… well, we’ll see. I have a story that could easily introduce you to one of the novel’s formative characters, so I’ll likely post that as well. I know there are only a few of you following this blog, but I won’t make any assumptions about the interest level in this work other than it exists.

On that note, I appreciate your patience as I’ve been attending to my life, which is why this blog has been so quiet. No excuses! When there’s activity, I post, otherwise, not. When I’m not posting here, you’ll find me on Twitter, Patreon and even Discord. On a side note, man does Windows 10 need Discord integration or what?

I think that’s enough rambling for one post. As always, comments will be open for a while, but if you’re really in earnest, catch me on Twitter ~ @hastypixels ~ okay?

Ta for now!
