Weekly Update – July 9, 2019

As regular blog readers might know, I am one of the featured authors at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire’s Local Authors Series for 2019.

One of, but certainly not the only one, and faire co-producer Eric Tetreault has shared with me the mostly full roster of this year’s authors — mostly, because there is one slot yet to be filled.

Here’s the lineup:


The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs: First draft in progress. I have Sunday all to myself so I am hoping to get a good chunk of the climax out of the way.

Well-Behaved W0men – Transition: Audiobook is in the recording process with my new narrator.

Well-Behaved Women – Endtimes: Fifth draft is finished and with my editor, now aiming for a late August/early September release.

Action Figures – Issue Nine: Hell Hath No Fury: First draft in progress.

Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins (audiobook): Review completed, final editing in progress.


  • The Connecticut Renaissance Faire – Saturday, October 5, Lebanon County Fairgrounds, Lebanon, CT: I’ll be back again to sell and sign books as part of CTRF’s Local Authors Series.

The New England Speculative Writers group has a new preview book for newsletter subscribers. Pick it up and read the opening chapters to Well-Behaved Women – Awakening and other stories.

If you’d like to make sure you don’t miss any news from me, remember that I have a weekly newsletter that features some of the stuff you see posted here plus new, newsletter-exclusive material. Click this link to sign up.

Another slowish week. It was a three-day weekend at Robin Hood’s Faire, but damn, was it a good weekend. Well, except for the fact it ended with a contact lens sliding up into my head and refusing to come out until I was halfway home. Good times.

Action Figures – Issue Seven: The Black End War: Second draft finished, third draft in process.

Action Figures – Issue Eight: Crawling from the Wreckage: Second draft finished.

Action Figures – Issue Nine: Rough plotting in progress.

I’d like to give a shout-out to my friend Allyssa Norton, who provided the art for a new children’s book, Momma, Buy Me a China Doll (First Steps in Music series) by author John M. Feierabend. Her work is truly beautiful and she’s already been tapped to provide the art for a second children’s book. Go check her stuff out! Now! Do it. Doooo iiiiiiit.
