August is one of those months I’d be happy to skip. ๐Ÿ˜… 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.

So! How did July go?

๐Ÿ’ I’m most thrilled that I wrote and published 6 episodes of Grimoire Society of Dark Acts in July! I’m absolutelyAugust 2021 Update 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!)
๐Ÿ’ I interviewed three fabulously talented women from speculative fiction small pressย Luna Press Publishing for Writers Showcase podcast.ย Watch on Facebook or on YouTube.
๐Ÿ’ I was thrilled to support Max Watson Books in her campaign to help end sex trafficking. Grab her bookย 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.ย Watch that special episode of Lurking for Legends, or check out my blog post.
๐Ÿ’ I edited a romantic comedy, a small-town romance, nonfiction resources, and a nonfiction book.
๐Ÿ’ I took more notes on my second nanopunk novella.ย Can’t wait to get writing on this again!
๐Ÿ’ 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.

And for August, here’s what’s coming.

๐Ÿ’ A LOT of editing work for me, which is great!
๐Ÿ’ 4 more episodes of Grimoire Society of Dark Actsโ€”one per week. So looking forward to this!
๐Ÿ’ I’ll be interviewed on the Lynda Sunshine Podcast (Women Action Takers).
๐Ÿ’ 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.
๐Ÿ’ 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. โค๏ธ๐Ÿถ
I hope your August looks like it’ll be a good one!
