I wanted to put out an update to let people know what’s going on. If you follow me on social media, you probably already know about my run of bad luck! I haven’t had computer access for a while, so it was difficult to typing up anything more complicated than a status update.
Unfortunately, Anchorage, Alaska was hit by an earthquake last Friday– I was affected, but I’m fine aside from a messy apartment! There were no fatalities or major injuries, but lots of damage to infrastructure. Given the scale of the event, I’m really surprised and incredibly grateful. Things could have been so much worse!
As far as stories, art and narrations, I am going to wait until the semester ends before putting out more content, but I have a backlog of ideas and half-finished works I’ll be able to plow through when time permits.
Some good news: I’ve been published! Two of my stories have been included in the monster anthology Monstronomicon. (Book available in paperback and e-book on Amazon now!) Shiny, polished versions of “Pass It On” and “Another Reason to Quit Smoking” are included in the book. Profits from the book are being funneled towards funding a sizzle reel so the stories can be pitched as an anthology horror TV show.
There is also a Kickstarter campaign going right now, if you’re interested! (ending 12/31/2018). Different tiers have some really neat prizes, such as audiobooks and copies of the book. This is the first time I’ve been published, EVER, so this accomplishment has me smiling in spite of my circumstances.
Sometime in the next two weeks I plan on posting a creepy Christmas story, so keep an eye out for that! It’s already outlined, but I need to concentrate on my finals and group projects. I’ll be free for the semester in a week, then have a reduced workload for the spring semester (when I’ll GRADUATE!)
Things are looking up! Thank you everyone who has been showing so much love and support. I know that I’m very fortunate, even if it doesn’t feel like it sometimes!
