Happy (belated) New Year! We’re back!
I hope you all had a good holiday season like I did, hopefully without the 1400 miles worth of interstate driving in snow storms. It was all worth it and we got to see many family members that we only really get to see once every other year. On the drive back, I was looking forward to getting back to the strip and really getting a handle on the schedule, as I think we can all agree 2013 was not a great year for me, schedule-wise. Then I and every member of my family got incredibly sick. My guess is that myself and my daughters had the Texas variant of the influenza (strangely, there is a Texas variant, a California variant, and H1N1) that is going around, while my wife has an upper respiratory infection and/or bronchitis. Fun times.
Right now, I plan for MeatShield to temporarily go to a weekly schedule. I hope to have it off this weekly schedule and back to a three times a week schedule by March. I also have good news; I have finished laying out the bulk of Book Two! Now all that needs to be done is the creation of the extras pages, including Becky’s dossier file and Pathfinder stats for all of the characters, among others. I hope to finally have this done by the end of the month. Cross your fingers for me! Right now, the working title of book 2 is “Against the Gravel Giants!”
