Whew. It's been a busy time. In addition to all the usual drains on my time and energy that I inevitably go on about in this space (blah blah day job blah blah family blah), most of you probably know the latest thing that's been tugging at the sleeve of my life.
My new webcomic, Cold Iron Badge, launched last week on Modern Tales. You can read it here!
I think the launch went well, and the response has been really positive so far. Thanks to everyone who has already shared your thoughts!
Cold Iron Badge is around three-quarters written, and with our planned weekly update schedule -- with a new short scene appearing every Monday, there's plenty of time for me to finish it without too much deadline pressure.
By the way, that means that the next installment will be up tomorrow, so please do check it out!
But there was also a lot of other prep work. Talking with Patrick about all sorts of details related to the launch, logos and promotional images and all kinds of other stuff. Doing an interview with Patrick and Modern Tales editor Shaenon Garrity.
So, I've got a new webcomic up and running. It's not hypothetical any more. People I don't know can read it whenever they want. And Greg and I have been talking about reviving the Xeno's Arrow website and doing more to promote that project -- with the long-term goal of creating new material. And a couple of months back, as I mentioned, I was published in Weird Tales.
So, I've been busy. But also...
I think I might be back.
Which not only means that I'm noticeably busier, but also leaves me with the question of what this blog is for, now.
That's something I need to think about. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.
