As indicated in the title, I have Good News, and it's for Everyone!
After a year long struggle with trying to figure out how, exactly, the files for my hard-bound edition of "A Glimpse into Madness" managed to disappear from anyone's database, the files have been found! (Yay!)
And, after a year, it turns out they're the wrong files entirely (less yay).
On the plus side, I was able to correct them (semi-yay) and the hard-bound trade edition of "A Glimpse into Madness" will, in fact, be seeing the light of day in the next month or two. Possibly sooner (yay for real this time). And I should even have copies available while I'm in Whitby for the Bram Stoker International Film Festival (double yay).
Progress on Moribund continues, and I'm hopeful that it will be out in the first half of 2017. The ending is proving troublesome, because that's the nature of endings, but I'm hopeful that I'll have it completed and edited soon. Work continues.
In the next few months, I'll likely be looking for beta-readers for it. Beta-readers have the honor of reading a near-final copy of the book and giving it the outside-view–that is to say, they get to tell me where I was too wrapped up in the story to actually make sense. I'll be looking for a wide-range of people, so if you're interested, please email me: SeanWalter.Author@Gmail.com with the title line of "Beta-reader Application." Please include your name, any profiles you have in social media, any experience you have as a reader (yes, those stacks of off-the-wall novels next to your bed count), and if you're familiar with my past work.
As far as my personal life goes, I'm still living at my father's house, taking care of him after an accident left him with a mostly-broken left side in May. He's recovering slowly, but surely, and I'm incredibly happy with every iota of progress he's made. I sincerely appreciate all of the friends and fans of my work who have asked me about his condition over the last months, and for all offers of help. I'm stubborn, but appreciative of all of your efforts.
That about wraps it up on this end. I'm off to edit.
