It’s September 2018.

I’ve launched a newsletter which I’ll work on as I release more content. I plan to release snippets of my upcoming short novel, City of Kaiju, which will debut in a few months. I’m sending it to the editor in a few days, so I’m hard at work making sure my final story points are in and ready.

Also this month, Legends of Eifalia is back on and I plan to finish it by November. I have a better idea of where to go, so now it’s full steam ahead. I’ve found places to incorporate my new POV character, Malo, and plan to find location for Nalia’s POV, making it a total of three main POV characters. It’s been a while since I poked at this, so now, it’s time for some progress.

While we’re on the subject, City of Kaiju pre-orders are set to go live in October, so I’m hoping for a release around November or maybe later than that. I think by the end of the year is feasible, so be ready for that.

And finally, I hope to work on my episodic story featuring the two characters you see above. I have nothing else to add about it, but it’ll be an original tale, might not be inn related, but it’ll have a wonderful cast, a magical story, and tons of action. If you like action cartoons, you’ll love this story. I hope to give it the best love letter to my favorite medium, which is, of course, anime. Heavily inspired, but very much me, so be on the lookout for that.

I’ve made a Trello page so you can see my progress. The deadlines are not release dates. I’ll announce them when I’m ready, so keep an eye out for that.
That’s all for today. Take care, and remember, the inn is always open.
