State of The Trout: What I’m working on now, where I’ll be, and Wednesday Blogging

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey everybody! As you might have noticed from yesterday’s unusually optimistic post, I’m back! I’ve crawled out from under my overwhelming two release months in a row and the resultant stress-induced depression, I’ve taken a week off and now I’m ready to jump back into writing with both feet! The next Buffy recap will be here on Thursday, and then it’s Merlin Club on Friday and sweet baby potatoes and celery, it’s almost like I’m actually blogging again!

What am I working on? I’m glad I presumed that you would ask!

  • Playing Him, a New Adult novella
  • The Abysm of Time, the second book in my Wondrous Strange series.

I’ll be going places, too! I’ll be at the Chicago Spring Fling Book Signing  (Hoffman Estates, IL • April 26, 2014 • 9 – 10:30am). There are going to be a lot of great authors at this one, including my girl Bronwyn Green, so if you’re in the area, come check it out!

Next up, in an attempt to get back to more regular blogging, I’m joining a bunch of really fabulous authors in a wednesday blog ring. Every week, we’ll be posting on the same topic. This week is “A Day in The Life,” and I thought it would be a great way to introduce another new feature, Trout Nation TV! I’ll be posting videos on an irregular basis, to keep things low maintenance.

Here’s the inaugural episode of Trout Nation TV, and my first wednesday blogging entry:

Check out what these writers do every day:

    Awesome idea! Will watch after the school run!

    I feel like I haven’t read your blog in forever, I never get the updates anymore! Sad times 🙁

    The peppy music really makes the video. The intro was creepy, though. Dolls…. *shudders*

  4. Did you notice that in the intro there is a definite glint in John Denver’s eye!?!? I *knew* that doll was watching me the last time I was there…

    You know- it’s really nice to see an actual writer’s day. As an aspiring writer, I think I’m on the right track!

    I echo the others about being an aspiring author interested in a glimpse into a working writer’s life! Or I suppose I should say, I’m a “pre-published” writer. 😉

    Also – I just wanted to add that I read “Such Sweet Sorrow” and loved it. Hamlet meets Romeo & Juliet? Yes, please! I’m looking forward to the next installment.
