Thank you for always keeping these threads and the camaraderie of the authors here running, @Eiwynn!
My book, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE, actually comes out on July 6th, but this month is a very exciting time as we lead up to launch day! I will be running a month-long giveaway campaign for preorder sales starting on June 6th; I’ll be posting more info about that later! And I will be busy with interviews, podcasts, and author panel events to help promote the book as we approach its release.
My goal this month is primarily to handle all that and gear up to WHABH’s launch gracefully. Due to COVID, I’m not sure if we’ll be able to hold an in-person book launch party at the bookstore we had planned, something that’s always been a dream of mine. Maybe for the next book! But if that doesn’t happen, I’ll be throwing a party for myself and friends and family to celebrate.
My other goal is to tackle Patreon stuff, as usual–a short story, Q&A, update blogs, and an update to the alpha build will all be in the cards. My stretch goal is to finally finish Chapter 6 of the alpha build! The chapter’s been a beast to wrangle–it seems every chapter gets longer and more complicated–but if I can finally finish it this month, I will be very happy. Shepherds is close to 600,000 words now, if it hasn’t already reached that threshold. Idk how tf @Havenstone and the author of Choice of the Cat did it… I can’t even run randomtest on the whole game anymore because it causes my computer to crash! I’m 60% done with the game, so… probably 400,000 more words to go…
jk I hope
I hope everyone has a great June and takes some time to enjoy the summer, we deserve it!
