Today I’m feeling kind of odd. Not bad, not great, just… like another piece of my life is changing. Today I woke up, got my daughter off to school, and as I sit here checking my emails, looking for another job something just felt weird to me.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s ever felt this way. But it really didn’t hit me until I went about my daily ritual of checking my favorite webcomic. Last year, it was announced that Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire was going to end. I was prepared for it, I am braced for it, but it didn’t really hit me until today… In just over 2 weeks, something that I’ve enjoyed for TEN YEARS will be over. I’m not knocking Mookie, Dominic’s writer and creator. I understand completely, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
But there have been a few other things around me that have been changing. One of those things is my writing… or I should say story lines. For a while, I was going to link a new story into the High Council universe, but after looking at it yesterday, I’ve decided against it. So I had to revamp that entire line. Dragon’s Awakening has now been reissued in print. The only change for the e-book is the cover. I updated the cover art for the Kindle, I’ll do the Nook later today. I’ve tried to continue with Demon’s Tango. I probably will, but it’s coming slowly. I would rather wait and put out something good, than something that would make you want to hate me.
Maxwell Investigations is also starting to make another turn. It started out as something fun for Tia and I to do. With Precarious Possessions and Dangerous Dalliances the series gets pretty dark. Now that Auspicious Affairs is on the plate, parts of me want to steer it back to light and fun, while other parts of me want to make it darker and more action based as well. And this isn’t even including the fact that more characters are peeking in and they want their time to shine as well.
So, this is where I’m at for the moment. I don’t know what the future holds for any of my series. I’ll keep you all posted about what I’m working on, but until then we all just have to sit back and watch change happen.
