A few things to know:
For a couple of years I was working “J-O-B-S” to pay the bills and give me some emotional energy for writing.
At the end of Summer 2018 I returned to my (emotionally demanding + weird hours required) profession.
Consequently, writing (incl. blogging) has sloooooowed down.
But it hasn’t stopped. (Go me!)
Right now I’m working on:
- The Blood Rain sequel, Blood Down the Bones
- A YA novella called Gaia Shrugged
- A second volume of short stories in the Fables series
In other news, my publisher, Filidh Publishing, advises that Blood Rain is no longer available on Amazon. Apparently this is because of recent US legislation that has had a chilling effect on what kind of books Internet bookstores feel comfortable offering. It’s easier for them to simply not carry certain titles than it is to fight the power.
Apparently the child trafficking theme in Blood Rain is a no-no. For the record, I’m against child trafficking. That should be pretty obvious to anyone who actually reads the book. That said, keyword searches for (what some think of as) objectionable content are not context-sensitive, so it would seem the fact that child trafficking is a theme is a problem, regardless of the frame placed on it by yours truly.
Trying to figure out work-arounds. *sigh*
