I’m so excited, tonight’s the night! The new season of American Horror Story starts!! I have to be up at 5 for work so I might not make it to the end but I sure am going to try! It’s my only consolation to summer ending. So not ready for the green to go.
Last winter in Toronto was pretty brutal. It was the coldest winter I can remember. There were some days when it got down to -40F and below once the wind chill was factored in. Just before Christmas there was a huge ice storm that took out power to a huge chunk of the city, including my apartment. We didn’t have power, heat, or hot water for four days (other people went a lot longer, so I was fortunate). For the first few days but by Christmas Eve-Eve it was getting pretty cold. The animals and I piled under the blankets that night to sleep because it was down in the 30s (F) inside. I woke up on Christmas Eve morning to my next door neighbours’ generator. Did I mention I live in an apartment building? Yeah. My place reeked of gas. I had to open the windows even though it was minus God knows outside. But then the power went back on. My kitten freaked out. She hadn’t seen light in four days, couldn’t figure out what devil magic was going on. Anyways, yes, winter, not for me.
There’s going to be a bit of a delay on the release of Lost Days. I finished the first draft and while it wasn’t terrible, it just didn’t feel right, so I’m doing a much more time consuming second draft than normal. Typically during the second draft I only make changes that smooth out the story but this time the changes are much more comprehensive, but they will get done.
Dark Prophet is coming along slowly but surely and I have also started work on a smaller project, called Lydian, which I have been dabbling with for some time. Lydian is a vampire story (all authors have to dabble in vampires apparently), or rather a series of short stories that put together form a much longer, larger story. I have no idea when Lydian will be read for publication though as The Order series still remains my primary focus.
Anywho, back to work!
