My failure to blog regularly is a direct result of my new profession: a stay-at-home dad. I was spending my days trying to catch up with writing and various other things while my wife was still on maternity leave. Now that I’m alone with our lovely but intensely demanding baby (soon to be toddler), I find that things are becoming more routine and I’m able to allocate more time to my work, this site, and my Goodreads blog.

I’ve deleted previous entries, including the very last one, in order to start fresh. I have a few updates.
The release of the Songs of the Satyr anthology, which includes one of my short stories, has been pushed forward indefinitely. It is seeking a new publisher and gaining momentum along the way. I will post updates as I receive them. You can also follow Aaron J French on Facebook, as he is the editor.
My own short story collection has also been held up, but for good reason: I’m going to flesh out the novella in that collection into a full-length young adult novel. It is going to be an interesting journey, finding out what form the story will take, and I will try and record my progress here if I can find the time to blog regularly, which is my intention.
I’ve been blogging on Goodreads.com about the books/stories/graphic novels I’ve been reading, along with other tidbits, somewhat frequently. I have been neglecting Facebook often, but I find it a very tiresome network. For any publication news I will post there and Twitter, otherwise there won’t be much activity for the time to come.
There is more news on the way, as the mist clears (and here I mean the very exhaustive duties of raising a baby) and new events come into focus.
In the meantime, I’ve read two issues of Diabolique magazine and have been very impressed by the articles and quality of writing. http://diaboliquemagazine.com/
More news to come…
