Snow Day

The entire state is shut down today, so I finished my March writing goals earlier than I thought I would. Plus I've reorganized my site, removing everything Forbidden Publications from it. Starting tomorrow I'll be starting the search for a new publisher. I think everyone who's supported me so far, and I really hope I have more out for people to read soon. Thanks!

I'm a little behind on my March word count due to the bad weather we've been having in North Dakota lately. Blizzards, flooding--it's a mess. But I have a few more days yet to reach my 30,000 word goal, so I'm still going for it.

Sad news for the e-publishing world

It was announced yesterday that as of March 30, 2009 Forbidden Publications will be shutting down. This came as a shock to most of its authors, but it is not due to financial difficulties. In my opinion, Forbidden was one of the best e-pubs out there and they were a pleasure to work with. I am sad to see them go. Rights for all three of my books will be reverting back to me and I'll be shopping Demon's Torment around to other publishers as soon as April rolls around. I will probably hold off on the other two until I've found a new home. For anyone that was thinking of buying Demon's Torment, make sure you do it before the 30th. Otherwise you will have to wait awhile. Demon's Torment will still be available in paperback format through Lulu.com.

For authors in my writing group, March is another month of novel writing fun. While some writers treat it like November and shoot for another 50,000 words, I like to take things easy. One month of insane writing is enough, so I'm only shooting for 30,000 words this month. At the moment I'm right on track, and of course it would be nice if I could get more than that. It would help me finish up the book I'm working on right now--but even 30,000 words will get me close enough to my goal to make me happy. Well I'd better get back to it. If I can keep up the pace I've achieved throughout the first few days of the month, I'll hit 50,000 without a problem, but I don't think I can keep it up.
