First. The first Open Thread seems to have been successful. I’ll be posting one on Fridays from now on.

Second. I’m afraid I’ll be posting less frequently until the end of the year.

I will finish writing my new book by Dec 31st if it kills me. Although I’m not abandoning you, my beloved readers.

    Does this mean we’re gonna get more adventures of the badass orc sergeant?

    Didn’t you write a zombie book?

      Yes.
      .
      And it sold like hotcakes.
      .
      Two year old hotcakes.
      .
      It was a “learning experience.”

        I bought it…I really liked it, and it was REALLY spookily prescient about Michigan politics.

        I hope you dust off the sequel plans. It definitely was left at a cliffhanger.

    I’m kind of hoping it’s a sequel to the football zombie book.

    Good!

    Less good.
    “I will finish writing my new book by Dec 31st if it kills me.”
    Writing a book: still more lethal than COVID.
    “Although I’m not abandoning you, my beloved readers.”
    And we’re back to good.

      When I put it this way it doesn’t sound so good anymore.

        what could be bad about a Zombie Cataline?

          The sales.
          .

          Zombie fans are passionate and they will turn out for a zombie book BUT it has to meet the tropes of that genre or they aren’t interested.
          .
          I didn’t do that, so the sales were crap. And since I can’t re-engineer that universe to meet those tropes, any further books in that series would continue to have sales at the bottom of the sales charts.
          .
          I liked that universe but it’s never going to pay.

    Sorry to hear that.

    It needed marketing to the Ringo crowd.

      When I tried marketing my book to them, all that those dipshits ever did was tell me how great Black Tide Rising was, instead of giving my book a shot.
