I’m gonna blame it on 2020. After all, the year has given us:
- Massive and ongoing protests
- ZOMBIE hurricanes
- Meth Gators
- Murder Hornets
- Record-setting wildfires
- Political chaos and upheaval
- Covid 19 (200,000+ dead)
- Economic woes and potential ruin
- 130 degree temps in Death Valley
- 300,000 “recycled and reused” condoms in Vietnam
Or to offer escape, which is certainly something we all need right now.
So, what am I working on right now? I wild yarn in which Shakespeare fakes his own death, sails to the Jamestown colony and runs into some truly horrific troubles, as in monsters. Why not? When life gets ridiculous, the ridiculous get ridiculouser. Yeah, that’s a word. Now. I hope this story will be out in the summer of 2021. After that, I’m onto a steampunk about a man who is mysteriously turned into a goat, and then a horror novel about a man possessed by the spirit of a slavery-era serial killer.
Plus, you know, there’s my day job. And you?
