I've not travelled for a few years now, but I'm making plans. I'm hopeful for 2022.
I've been learning two new languages: Latvian and Russian. I hope to travel through some of the former Soviet Republics, from the Baltic States to the Caucasus.
It's hard to find language learning materials for Latvian—so my language learning has been slower. For Russian, it's much easier to find language learning materials, but I'm not sure the language itself is easier.
I'm still at the level of learning new vocabulary and practising pronunciation. Speaking will come later.
Blue Prometheus, the first novel in the Blue Prometheus trilogy is now on sale, reduced from $3.99 to $0.99 for the next 10 days!
I recently read something that Carl Jung wrote. "Nature is aristocratic." A small comment, but it made me think of the fantasy habit of creating medieval settings where aristocracy plays an important role. Perhaps this reflects an unconscious need for structure and hierarchy amongst many fantasy writers and readers.
Orange Storm—my upcoming urban fantasy novel—is back from my proofreader. Reviewing the proofread now, and then on to formatting the novel.
Reduced from $3.99 to $0.99 for six days only. Available at all major online bookstores! A good opportunity to buy the first book in the Blue Prometheus Series at a reduced price.
I plan to release my next novel early next year. I had hoped to release it this year, and some readers like it as it is, but I won't release it until I feel it's ready. Not perfectionism, I just want it to be as good as it can be. But I don't want polishing a novel to stop me writing a new one, so I'm participating in NaNoWriMo again this year. 12,000 words into that so far. You can follow my progress on FB.
