The end of Greystone approaches and the start of a brand new project. It’s been a crazy month filled with broken furnaces and hot water tanks but plenty of writing in the mix as well.
Pathways in the Dark is available for pre-order!
It might not seem like much needed doing on that front but there is a ton of formatting and proofing to be done when getting a book to press. Very happy with the results so far and I hope you feel the same when the print and digital versions hit the shelves on February 20th!
A Circle of Shadows
The climactic finale to Greystone’s first major arc is coming together. I have a five page document of areas I need to work on. Hammering out details on character motivations or thoughts on how better to stage a scene. The spine of the novel is set. I’ve read through it three times this month so far and enjoy the hell out of it each time.
(Not my typical reaction if you know me…)
New beginnings and many endings to come with this book. You’ll hear more about it in a few weeks as I button up the self-editing phase.
Not much in the way this month with editing taking over. I have created a Winter Reading List that I posted earlier this week if you’d like to join me in the fun!
I have, however, tried to catch up on some viewing over the holiday break.
Supergirl Season One – I am a big fan of everything Kryptonian, in case Loren’s wardrobe wasn’t a big enough clue to that. I was worried about the stylistic changes for the show but absolutely enjoyed the arc over the course of the inaugural season of the show. Yes, the romantic interludes were tiresome but the inclusion of so many great background characters made it fun. Looking forward to the next one.
Fuller House Season Three (Part 2) – Yes. I am still watching this show. Many question my sanity but I find the lives of the Tanners/Fullers to be a nice change of pace from most programs in my queue. The deviations from the main characters bother me (a lot) but I feel like the show gets stronger with each season.
Spider-Man: Homecoming – I have been reading the adventures of Peter Parker for going on 25 years. During that time there have been plenty of ups and downs. The Sony films have been on the lower side of things for the most part. (Spider-Man 2 is still one of the best super-hero films of all time so I have to give them that one…) After two disappointing installments, this new iteration of the character was such a breath of fresh air.
While some of the Sony tropes remained (Hey look, no mask! or How about we throw a giant American flag in the background for no particular reason?) I think the helping hand of Marvel Studios kept the webhead grounded and interesting. And Michael Keaton was great. Can’t go wrong with Keaton in the villain role.
Hopefully some books will be read for the next one folks. Until then, stay warm!
