Well, it's been some time since I gave you an actual update on the state of affairs and I do feel kinda bad about being silent for so long. So here are a few explanations.
Some of you who follow my writing more closely will have noticed that updates there have died down to a trickle. The reasons for this are simple, if not exactly pleasant. I'm moving away from my little cozy home of eight years and back to my old place, which is both irritating and more time-consuming than I expected it to be. And the reason for that is that I'm spending most of my time now looking for a job that's actually paying my bills. Now, before you get all riled up, this is no farewell from writing! I'll be done with moving my stuff within the next seven days, and I've already found new employment, even though it's temporarily limited (keeping my fingers crossed). That means I'll be back to updating the story within the next week, too.
Suffice to say this year has been less than optimal. I had to permanently bury some long-lasting aspirations, lost a very important loved one and am now trying to find serious employment just about when the Eurozone is dipping back into a recession. Lucky me, I guess.
Another point of frustration that makes me feel exceedingly guilty is the lack of updates and results to report to my IndieGoGo backers. I know you've gotten your signed paperbacks and ebooks as well as the keychains of your choice. I also know I updated ten days ago that the maps were in print. And because nothing ever seems to work the way its advertised I haven't heard back from the printing company since then. I've repeatedly tried to contact them by email, to no avail. This is doubly frustrating. For one, it makes me feel like a cheat to people whose support I so greatly value. Secondly, I'm holding the print proof in my hands! It looks really good, is 80x60 centimeters and printed on thick, solid paper. Knowing the same ought to be on its way to some of you and for some reason it isn't makes me grind my teeth (at least my teeth are okay; had four teeth surgically removed without even the hint of a problem).
But I don't want to end this update on a bad note. The guys who are doing the excellent Timeshift audio play series have begun the preliminary steps for turning Wolf Hunt into an episodic audio play. I've already seen and signed off the first episode's script. It'd be great if they could get this going because there's great talent at work there and the production quality has improved by leaps and bounds since their first episode.
Well, that's it from me for now.
