I can’t believe I haven’t posted a new blog all year. Well, I have given up on the Patreon experiment, so maybe I will be better at keeping things updated here.
We’ll see. Today, I am procrastinating when I should be working on The Elderly Earl’s Estate edits. It is being particularly obstinate…but on the other hand, I’ve just added a new character who may turn out to be extremely important along the way, and I have FINALLY found a good opening that even the boys like. 😉
I’ve also discovered my new favorite band Steam Powered Giraffe. If you do not know this band, remedy that situation. It is amazing to me how they seem to have put Phaeton’s soul into lyrical form. In particular, Brass Goggles, Automatonic Electronic Harmonics, and Electricity Is in My Soul seem to speak to me of my automaton. I’ve been obsessing for a week now. Newell threatened bodily harm if I didn’t play something else…
The cover is coming along better than the book. I’ve acquired permission for my images and put everything together to my satisfaction, so we are good to go there. I will save the reveal for next week so that I have something to post.
Now go listen to the Giraffe!
