Steve’s Update 5/19/2018

(This column is posted at and Steve’s Tumblr.  Find out more at my newsletter.)

Looks like I forgot an update last week.  Things are still a bit busy.  So let’s get to it!

So what have I done the last week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: I got the first set of pre-read feedback in and it looks like my second big pre-read feedback and my own final twists can be integrated in one go – so that starts this week.
  • Agile Creativity I got this blog-posts-turned book into one book, formatted it and have it out to people!  Let me know if you want to take a gander.
  • Blogging: Posted my thoughts on an Overwatch MMO (quite proud of those) and more details on the Avenoth solar system from A Bridge To The Quiet Planet – Magic and Technology
  • General Chores: Getting ready for Fanime!

What am I going to do this week?

The name of the game here is “focus.”  I also have a baby shower to go to and an event to run, so it might be a bit occupied.

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: Start the final editing run.  I have no idea how long it’ll take.  I also hope to get more character work back on the cover!
  • Agile Creativity: Send it out to a few more pre-readers.
  • Fanime: Gonna be busy there!

I also realized I have to get back to fleshing out the Nexus at Seventh Sanctum – got a bit rushed in various things (maybe I overdid it there and should have paced myself).

As a note, I’m going to try more “bookblogging” – trying out posting some blog posts out of a book idea to see how it works and if its worth fleshing out.  Look for more soon . . .
