August was a difficult month that saw very little time for writing. The beginning of the month started off slowly with mixing administrative duties along with squeaking in a few hours here and there to get some writing done.
At the time, I hadn’t had it in my head of the things I needed to do later in the month. I was working on my next release, which is a story in my greater Hadrian Empire works, but I was also working on this website and several formatting details for my kindle books.
And then, I received an email. An event I’ve exhibited at yearly for the past 8 or 9 years had been canceled, but an online version was set to go on the last weekend of August. I had known this was coming, but with everything going on, I’d forgotten about everything I needed to do to prepare for it. And it was a lot.
For my other work, I craft things, and sadly I’d neglected my online store. It took two weeks of fourteen-hour workdays to make, photograph, and list everything I made to not only prepare for the event but also to update my store. It was a huge undertaking, and I didn’t have any extra time to write through all of it, which means I’ve not been able to work on my next release.
However, over the weekend (admittedly double-timing the event), I worked on a few short projects. The first was the speculative article on Mary Ann Nichols and was followed by two more biographies on characters in Cavern of the Writhing Floor. They will be the final post-release additions to the story. The first will be a biography on the Old Soldier, one of the antagonists to Kelsie Copper. The second will be the story behind Queen Aterkarina and the Burrowing Queen Slug.
Since these are finished, I can say that the Old Solider Biography will be released on September 5th, and the Queen Aterkarina Biography will be released on October 3rd.
