It's been a while since I posted an update so here it is:
I'm still working on Distorted Perception. I received notes back from my editor so I'm in the process of applying those changes and making my final edits.
I've recently found a new love in writing shorter fiction so I've been trying my hand at short stories and flash fiction. I've entered a few contests so far and am working on a couple different stories for upcoming contests. The feedback I've received so far on my entries from fellow writers has been invaluable and I've gotten great insight as to where my strengths and weaknesses as a writer are. I'm trying to apply what I've learned to current works in progress as well as those that I'm just starting.
NaNoWriMo is just around the corner (in November) so I've also been working on planning the novel (tentatively titled The Puppet Hunter) that I will begin at that point.
As usual, I have 8,000 projects going at once and haven't managed to finish a single one yet. But that will change in the very near future. Things are looking up and I'm excited about what is coming in the next few months.
Happy wording, fellow writers. And as always, a big thank you to everyone else for your continued support.
