Hello! I am still alive!
It has been an embarrassingly long time since I updated the website. Literal years have passed. Eight seasons. A pandemic -- still going! Two school years, 300 students come and gone. Far too much to update on every little thing. My apologies if you've been coming here expecting news and updates -- I plan to be more mindful of putting such things here in the future.
For now, I can update you on plans for the future. Book 2 of Rag and Bone is moving forward, in the publisher's hands as I type this. I think I can reveal the title here: Skate the Seeker. I am less comfortable giving a timeline, but I hope to have it out and available to you all by the end of the year.
(This is a hope, not a promise. Do not, as they say, @ me.)
As I get more information, I will pass it along. At the very least, I hereby promise to at least post some sort of update here once a month. For now, I work on a side-project -- I don't want to say much about it, as I have no idea if or when it will ever get finished, but it's what I've been working on while I wait for Seeker to get back to me.
Once book 2 gets finalized, I'll table this project to work on book 3. So long as we don't have a world-crushing catastrophe hit again, I don't expect the time between books to be as long next time. Talk to you again soon (or at least next month).
Write your story!
