A School of Many Futures: The book is out. I’m treating this as soft launch (no big announcement) until I see a print copy to see if I missed anything. https://books2read.com/u/bMwlPX

“The Agile Writer’s Mindset”: I’m probably going to take a stab at outlining this in the next month or two.

The Way With Worlds series: I plan to return to writing in October. I might get to it early, but I have other things.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite: I had to put this on hold to finish the novel and because of a bunch of other irritating interruptions. Now it’s time to get serious on the remaining generators to finish this up – and apply all the lessons I’ve learned.

Finally, two awesome giveaways you can grab stuff from:

A School of Many Futures’s cover is done and the ebook is being formatted. It’s mostly ready, but I want to do some cleanup and make sure the copy is “clean” from the ODT. I’m 80% sure I’ll be launching it this week.

“The Agile Writer’s Mindset” is something I am not thinking about. I want to get the book out. More and more I think this might be fun to write by doing zoom meetings with some of my readers!

The Way With Worlds series is – yep – not something I think about until next week or so.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite is still chugging along. I cleaned up and reviewed the code, but have to make some design decisions on speed versus a more maintainable environment. The last three generators I held off on reveal both some useful code changes, but also some questions. In the end, I think I’m going for maintainable – which means creating some more generator options “behind the scenes” as it were. Long-term it’s worth it, but it means undoing some shortcuts.

Two giveaways are in progress!

A School of Many Futures is assembled! Now it’s one final spellcheck on the entire document just in case, some formatting tweaks, finishing the cover, and eBook formatting. My worry – ironically – is the cover, which is very experimental. I may do that last and accept that if it looks bad in print, I can switch it.

“The Agile Writer’s Mindset”: Hasn’t been on my mind as much for obvious reasons. I’m debating brainstorming WITH you folks on it . . .

The Way With Worlds series: Yeah, we know, not until November, covers coming whenever.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite: Three generators left, though it’s been a little hard right now with work and a very, very hard to find bug in the superhero name generator. Starting to kick around an idea – maybe I launch with most generators and just get the oddballs later? I also need to work out a rerouting system for the old generators.
