It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and I figured I’d fill all y’all in on what’s been going on.
I spent a week up in Everett, WA two weeks ago, giving some training to a couple commands at the Naval Station there. Then last week, I flew to Japan for an exercise at the base in Yokosuka. Flew back on Saturday, and boy are my arms tired. Yuck, Yuck. 🙂 Anyway, the travel was all for work, but it was also fun. I like traveling, even when it’s to places I’ve been a dozen times or more (like Yokosuka). There’s always something new and cool to see and do…and I get per diem. 🙂 That certainly helps.
Yesterday, my wife and I ran the Spring Sprint Triathlon, which takes place in Mission Bay here in San Diego. We ran it together last year as well because it fell on our anniversary. I managed to trim a minute from last year’s time overall, so not a bad showing.
And then today was our wedding anniversary. 🙂 Though we didn’t do much today – yesterday was our real celebration day. But still, it’s cool. Seven years. Wow. It feels like fifteen. 😛 Just kidding, of course. 🙂 It’s been lots of fun so far. Challenging at time, but then what isn’t that’s worthwhile, right? We’re looking forward to lots more good years ahead. The more the better, right? 🙂
So that’s all cool. But there have been some goings-on in the writing world to tell y’all about as well:
First, and the most fun, a relatively new book review blog, The Good, The Bad, & The Bizarre, wrote a very nice review of The Pericles Conspiracy the other day. It appears they liked the book quite a bit, which tells me they are people of impeccable good taste. So all y’all ought to go over and read, not just the review of my book, but their other offerings as well.
And then, if you haven’t done so already, now would be a great time to pick up The Pericles Conspiracy. Because of goings-on #2: I decided to do an experiment in price pulsing, so for the next week, the book’s discounted to $0.99. Just to see what happens when that happens. 🙂 Spread the word, eh?
Ok. Goings-on #3. Nick Mortise, the guy who read How NOT To Rescue A Damsel In Distress, has finished his audio renditions of my other three Larian Elesir stories. I’ll be reviewing them over the next day or so, and then they should go on sale on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes within a couple weeks after that. So stay tuned.
Lastly, the cover art for Tollard’s Peak, Glimmer Vale Chronicles #3 is just about ready, and I got the first set of comments back from my first readers. At this point, I anticipate a mid-June release. More to follow, including the cover reveal as soon as the last few action items for the cover are done and the bill paid. So stay tuned for that as well.
So that’s it. As you can see, a fair amount’s been happening while I’ve been silent. Now that I’m back home and back in a normal routine, I’ll get back to posting chapters of The Pericles Conspiracy more regularly. Until then, have fun, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.
Yeah, yeah, I know. That doesn’t leave out very much.
You’ll just have to use your imagination.
