The site is getting an overhaul (it’ll go live inside of a month, I expect) and I’m taking the opportunity to rethink the way we do things around here. A substantial post once or twice a week worked well for a year, but things have changed. For a start I’m actually working on books, and films, as well as quietly managing the Karma Collective. I want to continue to update regularly, and for you to know that if you check back here at regular intervals there’ll be stuff worth your reading – the trick, however, is going to be making that happening without draining the well. The work has to come first.
To that end I highly recommend you subscribe to the RSS feed. At the very least, for the time being, it’ll let you know when the site updates. I’m experimenting with the way I structure my time, and I’m hopeful that before long I’ll develop a groove and be able to reliably update here regularly. Whether that’s once a week the way it has been, or once a fortnight, or once a fortnight with scattered showers of things like Phonetap Phriday (another one will be along shortly) remains to be worked out.
Last week a few members of the Collective got together and traded stories across a table out back of a bar in Melbourne. Inside the Collective conversations are happening, job offers are being made, opinions and advice are being given and I’m chuffed with the way it’s shaping up.
Book-wise the middle-reader book (working title: Babylon) is 95% done. Falling is 95% done. I am begrudgingly realising that Fateless can be saved, quite possibly, with the exercise of a little discipline (but I’ve still got a ways to go before I walk back into that one), and I’ve got the makings of quasi-steampunk novel that’s beginning to agitate my waters. Continuing to develop a certain business with a certain friend, so that’s taking a little time as well.
Also, been sick. Those passing my window heard the sounds and assumed I was in there feeding a bulldog custard.
In the future there’ll be articles in which I go to Louisville for Lebowskifest, interview two guys making headway in a Cthulhu-inspired infiltration of Hollywood, and hopefully continue to provide stuff you can take home.
In the meantime, feel free to read the first two chapters of my novel The Music of Razors, or the first two chapters of Nicholas and the Chronoporter, and maybe even purchase a copy for yourself or someone you hold in high regard because – as always – my cat needs wine.
