Steve’s Update 9/26/2021

So I hope you’re doing well – allergies hit me hard so a little behind. But a lot is going on.

A School of Many Futures is out – and expect an update to the eBook shortly that fixes a few errors. The print book is formatted (which took a bit longer due to some unexpected challenges), so I’m going to try to queue up a draft copy tomorrow! The hard part is done so if all goes well with the cover, I can try and relax.

“The Agile Writer’s Mindset” is now on my mind, and will probably be a bingewrite, but as noted I’m thinking of doing a Zoom with some of you to discuss it. Plus it’s a chance to socialize!

The Way With Worlds series is going to be returned to in October, as noted. As soon as I get a breather (soon?) I’ll outline the Man-Made Disasters book. I wondered if I should call it that (Created Disasters, maybe?) but it seems good enough.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite is back at it and I sorted out an IRRITATING problem that was all due to casting cases of data. That was it. So now I have to sort out one more option and I’ll have done all but two of the generators – and honestly, I may just leave those two oddballs out for now and get to solidifying the site.

And now, giveaways!

Steve’s Update 9/20/2021

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.

“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:

Two giveaways are in progress!

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.
