It has been a month since my last Journal entry. Doesn’t sound like a big deal until you consider that at this time last year I was making daily posts and destroying my relationship with some (many) members of my family.
So Josh, you ask, what the hell have you been doing this last month?
Well reader I have been making 3, count them 3, fucking revisions of “Shores of the Dead Book 1: The Rising” for J. Ellington Ashton Press. The process has been interesting in the best ways. At first I had to fight my urge to get mad at the notes I was getting. You have to remember folks that the last time I let somebody review and note my work (excluding Third Eye Games) was when I wrote Dead Reign and “Sold” it to Palladium Books. The experience was hell and I will never sugar coat it.
That is not me being a whiny bitch by the way it’s just the truth.
But the people at JEA (Catt, TL, Susan, and everyone else) have been amazing at holding my hand and making sure that I know that this is all polish and that I deserve to be where I am these days. I am lucky that I decided to submit to them and I am grateful that Stephanie made the offer.
Now other matters.
I am working on a Cthulhu Mythos story for an anthology. The great thing about this is that I was asked to submit to this book before they opened the submissions to the public. Anyone who knows my work knows how heavily I was influenced by Mr. Lovecraft.
I have decided that I am going to turn, actually am turning, “Summer Camp of the Dead” into a serialized story. The first episode will be released in September. Not sure which week it will start on but it will be on a weekly release schedule. After that I will be releasing another serialized series, “Welcome to West Lake” this is Mayberry RFD meets The Twilight Zone, or maybe it’s Eerie Indiana.
So that’s it for today kids. I’m busy, I’m happy, and I am tired!
Somebody send me a refreshing alcoholic beverage!!!
