Writing Late

I was up until 4:30 AM working on the final bits for The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Superheroes and Villains, Illustrated (which I’m working on with Yair Herrera for IDW and Alpha). I ran the spellchecker, sent off the files, and collapsed into bed for a couple hours before I had to get up to get the kids ready for school.

It’s been a bit quiet around the website lately. I’ve been scrambling to keep up with my many projects, and the sale and purchase of a house, along with the attached move, sucked up just about every spare moment I had. To clue you in as to how busy that is, I still haven’t posted my Gen Con 2007 report yet.

Not that I’m whining for myself. I’m having fun and doing good work. I’m in a wonderful new place, and I’m enjoying every moment I can with my wife and kids. My only real stress point is finding a wide balance point for it all, and that’s a good problem to have.

I have one more deadline to beat before the end of the year. It’s for an extended piece of serial fiction to be released for free on the web, but that’s all I can say about it at the moment. I’ll let you know the moment it goes live.

After that, it’s the New Year, with several projects already lined up. These include, at the least, work on two large computer game projects, plus my twelfth mass-market novel, the contracts for which I’m looking over today. I have a few more personal projects I’m hoping to carve out some time for, but as always they have to compete with paying work and my family for my attention.

In the meantime, I hope to post a bit more regularly here. Just as soon as I get a few hours more sleep.
