New Bikes, New Books

Fancy meeting you here, stranger!

This week we got some new folding bicycles. We’ve been thinking of getting some bike so we can take them out to some of the trails around the metro, as well as take them with us when we travel out of town possibly, for quite a while now. So the other day we took the plunge and bought these:

Wait, wait, that’s not it. Here is the actual image of it all folded up in our living room:

I’ve started my new book, which is still officially untitled at this point, even though I have a general idea what the title will be. This is the book with a trans main character, and also my first ever book writing from a dual point of view. I’m about two chapters in, and so far I’m really enjoying the dual point of view. Granted, it’s early to tell if writing dual POV is going to work out, but I’m hopeful.

The interesting thing with the dual point of view is that I can show a whole lot more than I could before, and it also allows me to easily skip over some of the more boring points. It allows a natural time break, and even somewhat helps when there is a lull. When things get slow I can just swap to the other character and everything is fresh again. It also allows me to explore their different attractions and how those develop. I’m really enjoying this. It’s pretty scary, being the first time I’ve tried this, but I’m doing okay with it. I think.

Beyond Freedom is now officially available on Amazon.

Everyone have a great weekend!
