AfterWords and 2018 Updates


AfterWords has been an absolute blast. This year, we've met 21 incredible authors and heard a slice of their stories. It doesn't get much more inspiring than that. We've met authors from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, UK, France and of course, all over the U.S. It has been an absolute thrill ride getting to know authors from all across this blue marble. Suffice it to say: I love AfterWords.

But I also love writing, and it's honestly been harder than I'd expected to do both. If we've known each other for any length of time, you know that I love setting unattainable goals and then emphatically not attaining them. It's a beautiful cycle of self-doubt and self-loathing.

So, I'm taking a bit of a break.


AfterWords will be on a bit of a hiatus through the summer, at least until August. I know, I know, there are a few of you who have submitted answers that will have to wait, and I'm sorry for that. You'll be first on the list come August, for sure! I'll plan on circling back around in July to get updates and all that.

Some News

So what's going on? I'll tell ya!

Next month, I'll be releasing Venison, both eBook and print. And I still need to get the final edit and formatting knocked out.

I would love to have the sequel to Frequency out in August, but I need to make some big headway on that in the next few weeks for it to happen.

I'm working with some friends on a really cool collection that I'm keeping somewhat under wraps, for now, called Red. That will release this fall, but we need to have the draft done in July.

I'm also working on Venison Season 2 and I've kinda been stuck writing that recently because the inspiration monster (zombie?) has visited. I'm really excited about it.

Finally, I'm working on a new website, because WordPress frankly hasn't been doing it for me. WP is a great tool, and I love it, but I'm finding it's not right for me at the moment. I hope to have that out in the next week or so.

Finally pt 2, I'm working on a semi-super-secret project with a group of friends, we'll be announcing that June 15th, so mark your calendars!

I just have too much going on. AfterWords is very dear to me, and it's not going away forever! Just for a little while.

Dan Alvarez and I will keep #AfterWordsMini chugging, however, each Monday at 6pm CST, so you can get your AfterWords fix thataway!

I look forward to connecting on the socials and knocking some really cool projects out this summer!
