Raise your glasses, cans, bottles, cups, mugs, goblets, horns, or even an empty fist in the air to the vets out there protecting our rights and freedoms we tend to take for granted. Cheers to you all.
Still working on the goblin story, so BoA is tucked in the corner for now. I am awaiting word back from the editor before I can give some timeline regarding book 2's release.
Not much more to report at this time. Stay tuned for more ridiculousness to come.

As I'm sure you've noticed, there have been some revisions to the website. That's because the apparel store is up and running!
I'm not pleased that I have to go through Etsy (which is the only way Printify works) to make the apparel available for ordering, but that's my only option at this time. Maybe at a later date, I'll be able to utilize something better to make the bundles I originally had planned.
Side note: It's creeping on to four months that the Facebook page has been down. Like you'd expect, Facebook hasn't put in any effort into resolving my problem.
That's about it for now. Until next time, more ridiculousness to come.

Good news! The apparel store is up and running! I've been trying to get this project done for a long time now, but I haven't had the resources to do it. When I told my brother about my problems, he told me about print-on-demand services for apparel. After designing and ordering a bunch of samples, I think I have something up and running that will work. I'm not happy that I had to create an Etsy account, but I don't have many options at this time.
Go check out the store. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by. More ridiculousness to come.

Good news - I submitted Book 2 to the publisher! So far, my January 2020 release is still plausible.
I'm excited and nervous at the same time. There were so many problems (mostly on my end) with the first novel that I took my time with book 2. I wanted to make sure things went smoothly, and I'm hoping that the extra time and energy on the project will help the editors with their jobs.
What that means is the third book will need to be in pre-production. Book 3 will need to be rewritten to accommodate the changes in the cannon. It's a shame because the entire trilogy was almost completed before Melange accepted my novels. After talking with the editor, who has helped me immensely throughout this experience, I agreed to rewrite book 1, not thinking about the ripple it would cause down the entire trilogy. But even with the rewriting of the whole series, this has been a fun and interesting experience.
That's it for now. Until next time, thanks for stopping by. More ridiculousness to come,

I got some good news. I got a way to get the apparel concept off the ground. The idea revolves around print-on-demand. The clothing will be created when ordered so there won't be any need for storage. That way I don't have to drop a bunch of cash for clothing and store/ship them for orders.
The bad news is I was planning on making bundles with books and shirts and stuff. I can't do that with the print-on-demand like I'm looking to do now.
On Saturday, the sample hoodie I ordered came in. It doesn't look bad. I have some more design tweaks to do, but so far the concept is working out. Next, I will be ordering a sample T-shirt with the new design to see how that looks.
Until next time. More ridiculousness to come,
