So, what have I been up to?
Mostly nothing. Still relaxing, planning, and doing some good ol' ruminating on the books and stories I'm planning to work on in the next couple years. Pretty sure I know exactly how to start FM7 now, also came to a rather important realization on how FM9 should end once we get that far in the series. These are tiny epiphanies, but very important to the process and ones that are very hard to have when you're focused 110% on a project, and a good reason why taking a break can be the best thing you can do before diving in.
That said, I have been keeping busy with "busy" work. I've made covers for the two novellas meant to release this year, as well as a new cover for FM5.5 in the same style. Did a cover and formated King Henry Box Set One, which will be coming out in March. Basically FM1 to FM3 sold together at a lower price, so nothing you fans will need, but a good deal for newbies. I've finally formated print on demand versions for the series as well and have two of the six covers finished. Expect them soonish. I hope! A more concrete soonish than ever before at least!
I did another round on the net looking for a professional cover artist and did find one I like this time, will look into it more when I get some money from FM6's sales.
Other than that...video games, movies, TV shows.
Been sick for the last couple weeks. YAY asthma + respiratory virus!
Am planning to start in on the novellas and Gush in Feb, so hopefully those status updates start moving!
