Here is a copy of my newsletter I sent to the folks on my mailing list on December 14th. I still have another day in the month so hey, it still applies. Thought I'd share it here on my blog.
What in tarnation is this mailing list I speak of? Glad you asked! If you sign up, you'll get lovely email messages like the one you're about to read from time to time. It won't be often, it won't be spammy, but you will be the first kid on the block to find out about stuff like new books I wrote. Go for it!
Happy December, Everybody! Depending on how you're wired, you may A: Love this time of year, or B: Hate this time of year. I guess I'm in the middle somewhere. I just turned 40 last week so I've been busy shopping for a sports car, hitting the tanning beds, and dying my hair dark brown.
In the meantime, the thermometer hasn't gotten over 20 here in Wisconsin for well over a week, it's snowing, I've done zero Christmas shopping, and it's dark outside by 4:30. Humbug.
But I digress. You didn't join my mailing list (thanks, by the way) to hear me bitch about my old age and the weather. What have I been working on you ask?
I'm 36,000 words into the second edition of Windigo Soul. Considering the original only hit 34,000 words and I'm about 3/4 of the way through the original story, I should hit my minimum of 50,000 words with ease. I hope. I'm still not sure how the story is going to end but hey, why sweat little details like that? If you're not aware of my reason for re-writing Windigo Soul, I explained in a blog post this past summer why I chose to do so.
Speaking of blogs, my colleagues and I over at DeadPixel Publications have been working hard to provide fresh content on our site with a variety of topics. Recently we've talked about Patrick Swayze, why women are better writers, Hitler, sex demons, home brewing, and the ingredients in seasoned salt. In case you haven't noticed, there isn't much of a theme to the blog. I'd appreciate it if you'd stop by and check it out. With all that variety you're sure to find something interesting.
Well, I'll let you get back to your December. I just wanted to drop by and say hello. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all that jazz. Take care.
* Update from December 30th Robert
Windigo Soul is now up past 50,000 words and I'm hoping to wrap up the first draft this week! In the meantime, enjoy a sneak peak of the new cover.
