Well, I have good news – I finished the first draft of Romance with Advantage and it’s off to several people to have it beta read and edited down. I’m really trying to grab on to this momentum to carry me on through the final set of edits for Valentina’s Feast. I really needed something like this to buoy my spirits. It feels nice to see all this work start to come to fruition. Between this and my current binge listening to these guys – life feels kinda good again.
I’m looking ahead to the next project: Agonizing Alibi Day. It’s the next book in Lucky Evan’s Life series. With this one, we get to see the inner workings of Evan’s company Tyche Solutions. I like writing Evan because he’s positive and the whole series is a comedy, which is a switch up from the normal and serious material I normally write. After that, I should get Calamitous Christmas Party finished and then work on the big literary work Gaze Unaverted, Staring Blankly Ahead. I’m just trying to keep my line-up for work in my head so I can go from one project to another.
Speaking of projects – I just saw the Marvel phase 4 trailer! I Cannot Wait! I’m shaky about a couple things (The Eternals) and eager for a couple (Black Widow, Spider-Man) and really, really curious about others (Black Panther?). The only thing I’m still anxious about is the Mobius film coming from Sony. It’s going to be easy to fall into the anti-hero tropes with The Living Vampire, but I’m hoping they’re going to give it the horror flavor it deserves. Also hopes it makes the transition over to the MCU.
The other outstanding news is that I got my haircut. The last time that happened, I didn’t have to wear a mask…and let me tell you – it feels good. I also look much younger, which never hurts.
That’s all for now – re-cutting Valentina’s Feast, waiting for news on Romance with Advantage and it looks like I might hit my August deadline! Hope y’all have a good day!
