Guess what I did?
Rather, guess what I didn’t do…I didn’t announce that Nocturna 5: Sacrifice was available for pre-order. I also didn’t announce that it became available last month. Oh, I threw out a weak announcement on Facebook. But I didn’t Twit it. Or Tweeter it. Whatever. I have an Instagram. I know I do because I get notifications from it. I just don’t use it. I’m an old dog that hates new tricks and can barely stand most social media so you’d think I’d take better care of this blog. I mean, there are a handful of you in the same boat as I am. You’d rather get poked in the eye with a sharp stick than hang out online. So you follow my website or subscribe and then…I drop the ball. Hey, you should be used to me letting you down by now so why am I hashing over it now, right?
Okay, so yeah. Nocturna 5 is out!
Also, I am working on Nocturna 6 and the plans are to wrap up this story with it so I can pay more attention to some other projects I have in the fire. I’m actually getting a little excited about Nick’s storyline. It’s the ‘Ain’t No Saint; Nick’ I mentioned in the previous blog post. I’m hoping it becomes sort of a Die Hard meets Hallmark Christmas Movie kind of story, but we know how characters take on a life of their own and take over the whole dadgum thing. Remember when I made Tufo a ‘bit’ character in Monster Squad and he nearly took over the whole thing? Yeah. Well, in all fairness, Mark is kind of like that, so…I had it coming.
Anyway, I felt guilty for not announcing N5 and realized I hadn’t updated my Works page in like…forever. So I got that done as well.
For those who are curious, I actually have a few chapters into Bridger 3. I keep thinking that I got off on the wrong foot with it and I’ve gone back to change it numerous times, but every time I read it, it just FEELS right. So, I guess we’ll just have to see where that story ends up going, too. Who knows? Maybe if Nick takes off, I might put him and Bridger in the same room and they’ll either team up or kill each other.
Now wouldn’t that be something…
So, there ya go. You’re updated now. I know I always say I’ll try to do better in the future, but obviously I totally suck at it, so…cross your fingers and we’ll both HOPE that I can keep this thing updated in the future.
Good luck, God bless, and here’s wishing you all of the love, luck and bacon that you can handle!
