August is one of those months I’d be happy to skip. It gets EXTRA hot, which I don’t appreciate. Let’s face it, it’s just in the way of the beautiful “-ember” months, with their cooler weather, vibrant leaves, and warmer, comfier clothes.
I’m most thrilled that I wrote and published 6 episodes of Grimoire Society of Dark Acts in July! I’m absolutely loving serial writing, and it’s such a refreshing change of pace for me. Historical fantasy is a genre I feel both comfortable with and excited about. I can definitely imagine writing historical fantasy a lot more! (Psst! Don’t forget you can read all of Grimoire Society of Dark Acts on my Patreon instead of Kindle Vella!)
I was thrilled to support Max Watson Books in her campaign to help end sex trafficking. Grab her book A Nickel and a Trinket, from which she’s donating 1/3 of the profits to Love146, a charity organization dedicated to helping children who are victims of trafficking. Watch that special episode of Lurking for Legends, or check out my blog post.
I edited a romantic comedy, a small-town romance, nonfiction resources, and a nonfiction book.
I took more notes on my second nanopunk novella. Can’t wait to get writing on this again!
I sent out my first redesigned newsletter, which felt really good. If you’re not already signed up, sign up here! It includes writing updates, Victorian findings, forgotten old movie recommendations, and an ambience of the month.
A LOT of editing work for me, which is great!
4 more episodes of Grimoire Society of Dark Acts—one per week. So looking forward to this!
I’ll be interviewed on the Lynda Sunshine Podcast (Women Action Takers).
Lurking for Legends every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, except for August 3 when Richard H. Stephens, Fantasy Author and I have one week off.
This month my dog starts a carefully researched homemade food diet to help resolve her seasonal allergy issues that are causing her problems resulting from inflammation. I can’t wait until she’s fully transitioned onto this.
