Well, 2020 continues to be a kick in gut, and let’s leave it at that. There’s nothing to do but keep pushing forward.
Steampunk Novel. Yet another month of no typing. Didn’t even muse on the poor old thing that much.
Shared-World Novella. Nothing new. I will start getting back to this as I wrap a couple other things up.
The Satellite Dish. I did a red-pen review of this and made my edits. Next I’ll drop the text into my e-book template and get this online. This has reminded me I need to update the links in all my self-published ebooks.
Untitled Short Story. I’ve started taking notes and otherwise simmering ideas for a short story for a small-press anthology planned for 2021. I’m betting the world will still exist then. How’s that for optimism?
Ko-Fi and Patreon. Two more free-to-read book reviews from my archives are up on Ko-fi: The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men who Risked All for the Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II by Gregory A. Freeman on my site and We’ll Always Have Paris: Stories by Ray Bradbury on the Generations Geek page. I uploaded another exclusive sound clip onto the Generations Geek Patreon, and posted the annotations for my Star Trek short story “Full Circle” on my Patreon.
Editing/Work for Hire. I completed a copyedit for Baen, the posthumous Jerry Pournelle novel Mamelukes. Finally, finally, I turned in the last few pieces for a forthcoming Star Trek Adventures role-playing supplement, which I was woefully late on. Now I’m diving back into my next Baen gig.
