Fifth Anniversary

Hello!

Friday, May 18th 2018 is our fifth anniversary!

I am so amazed that it has already been five years. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were meeting up to go to the zoo for our first date. Ah, wandering around in the zoo looking for an exhibit that I remembered but had been replaced since my last visit. I’m really surprised she put up with me!

I’m even more surprised that she has put up with me for this long. My wife is the most loving, supportive, and wonderful person of all time. Beautiful too!

Happy fifth anniversary, my love. I hope this amazing ride never ends.

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:

And here is the link to the actual store listing, showing a better image:

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!

Beyond Freedom Cover Reveal

Hello!

This week I just kind of planned out how I was going to handle the release of the next book, plus did some work finishing off the cover (Had cover image done by someone, but I add the text) and converted files so they’ll be ready to go onto Amazon. In short, it was a lot of work and still felt like I was accomplishing nothing.

Today we went out to a couple of thrift stores around, just because we enjoy treasure hunting. While we were out, we found an interesting looking little stuffed platypus, and a Venezuelan Snoopy that neither of us has ever seen before.

My wife is a huge Snoopy fan, so we’re always looking for Snoopy stuff, and she was born in Venezuela. This was really cool to find.

We also went to Taco Bell today, and we somehow accidentally wound up with extra Triple Layer Nachos. We didn’t really want to eat that much, but rather than throw them away we decided to eat them. So now I’m so stuffed I’m actually uncomfortable.

Yeah, I know: you don’t really care that I’m too stuffed.

So yes, Beyond Freedom will be coming out soon. And here is a tentative cover reveal:

I’m still, even this late in the game, open to some changes in that cover, so it isn’t set in stone. I’d say there is a 70/30 chance that is the final layout. We’ll see very soon.

Everyone have a good weekend, and I hope you’ll check back soon for more news on Beyond Freedom’s release.
