Hey pones!

Another monthly update, let's talk about what's coming.

Only one change coming this month--a new story! I think it's probably more of what we might be seeing from me in the next short while--monthly stories. I think it's a happy medium between the incredible time commitments required for a weekly endeavor, that I just don't have as much now that I'm working full time.

That's why I'll be introducing a new monthly story this week, focusing on a familiar face, maybe seen a little differently than you expect. If you like bugs, I think you'll enjoy this one, even if it takes a little while to tell.

Oh, and I guess I should probably mention since I didn't say so anywhere else. Survived the Kidney Stones. Survived a few, anyway. Two more still stuck in my organs, but they seem to be sitting tight for the moment. Who doesn't mind living with a little Russian Roulette? Didn't get as much writing done as I would've liked, since I was mostly in bed wishing I was dead. But now I'm back on my feet, or... at my keyboard.

Lots of stories moving towards their ending now. Hand of the Ancients has only a few months left, though it isn't done yet. Forerunner's Child wraps up this month. When it's done, I'll transition to integrating the edits we made during the revision process--then getting a cover figured out for a real, honest-to-goodness publication. This story was a spontaneous passion project, but I'm more than proud of where it ended up. Enough that I already started working on another one in the same world, along with a few short stories.

But that's not pony, so I won't linger on it for too long. I do plan on talking about my own work in these blogs, even if it wanders a few steps away from MLP--but with a returning mix of why I know most of you are here. There's probably another new story coming next month, but I don't want to hold anyone's breath yet. More pony this time. Stay tuned!

This is the year I make the transition to publishing books on the regular. I've got a nice pile of them ready to go here, either finished or in the editing phase. But so long as there are still a few pony stories left to tell, I'll hang around to tell them. Thanks for joining me for the ride.

The real limit right now is getting covers I can be proud of. As for hardcovers of pony works, I'm still searching for a Luna is a Harsh Mistress 2 cover that satisfies. I'll keep you up to date on that.

Oh, and there's a minific this month! Hasn't been one of those in a minute.

Thanks for sticking with me through this wild journey. Your support means the world to me, that I get to keep playing in this world I love.

If you're working full time now, I'm guessing you graduated? Congratulations on that, even if they're late. I hope the remaining kidney stones pass without too much trouble.
