Steve’s Update 8/26/2018

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

Here’s my update.  As this week got INSANELY busy there’s not a lot.

So what have I done the last week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:  Still editing, and the book is going to be seriously improved.  My editor’s advice let me see how to fuse my influences better into a much, much richer story.  Unfortunately because things are busy and there’s a lot of tweaking I want to do, it might go into November.  I don’t plan to have it go after that.  I’ll make the call end of September.
  • Way With Worlds: Doing the Organizations book on the side – and already planning a sequel.  This is real relaxing – which I can use.  I have a lot more planned.
  • Other: I did some speaking at the Toy Expo in the Bay Area and it was AWESOME.  I am also pleased to report that A) It was really diverse on subjects and merch, B) Had some great panels, C) Old-school figures like Gil Gerard and Eric Estrada got respect from people – there were CHiP’s cosplayers half my age.

What am I going to do this week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: Still editing!  I want to get through at least 3 more chapters, and am considering putting them online for prereaders.
  • Way With Worlds: Writing!  More!
  • Other: I have no idea.  I’m still exhausted.
