Another quiet week, but I’m back to a regular writing schedule this weekend. Woo!
Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins: Audiobook recording in progress.
Action Figures – Issue Six: Power Play: In the editing process.
Action Figures – Live Free or Die: In the editing process.
Action Figures – Issue Seven: The Black End War: First draft in progress.
Action Figures – Issue Eight: The only movement here is that I think I have a decent subtitle. Unless something better strikes me, book eight will be known henceforth as Crawling from the Wreckage.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Blades of Glory: Rough plotting in progress

After chatting with a friend last week about murder mysteries, I remembered a spec script I wrote several years ago for a WWII-era murder mystery show (A Star-Spangled Murder) and took it out to see if it was still any good. It was, which was a pleasant surprise. If anyone happens to be in the market for a short, three-act show with interactive elements for a small cast, contact me.
Final thought for the week, inspired by posts I’ve seen on other writers’ various social media outlets: it doesn’t matter how many Facebook followers you have, it doesn’t matter how many Twitter followers you have, it doesn’t matter how many newsletters you send out each week, it doesn’t matter how many books you crank out, it doesn’t matter how many likes or shares or retweets you get. Success isn’t all about raw numbers. Stop worrying about quantity and focus on quality.
