Hello 2019!

Welcome 2019! You beautiful year, you! So far, I am doing well. I got a new job to go with my other freelance writing job. It’s another freelance job and I have already submitted proposals to get the job. I haven’t gotten anything yet, but I have set up the payment method and took the tests to increase my chances. The payment method will take three days to approve and I am below average with my test results, but I passed. Meanwhile, I have also picked up walking again. I am trying to ease into by walking every Sunday. This month, it will be just once a week. Next month, I will start walking twice a week. I should me walking all week by July.

I am cutting back on some of the writer sites that I visit. A bad experience with one of them led me to this decision. Right now, I am hanging around the site, Romance Divas, and their chat room on Chatzy. They are a chill group. My one problem is that I wish that I could be sociable on these groups. Usually, I am working on my writing and not really focused. I might slowly post at the others again. It will depend on how I feel. I am still writing though. That’s not going to change. I just need to try and get a story edited and published. Meanwhile, I have so many ideas running through my head to expand the Wasteland Project. I will have to sit down and take the time to write them all out. Wish me luck and…

Brexit Sinks Further Into the Ocean

Well, it has happened.

Boris Johnson is gone! He has resigned this morning. Theresa May is screwed. It looks like Brexit might be canceled. I was told no, but it’s just getting worse by the day. I love England as much as I love Japan, but they and the rest of the UK didn’t think this through. They are like a little kid who told their parent that they were running away, but didn’t pack any food, water, clothes, money, or even plan out a destination. I am just over here shaking my head. Maybe they will cancel Brexit or get back into the EU in some way. Who knows?

Meanwhile, you can…

Moving to New Stage in the Game

I have decided to go a more traditional route with my publishing. I have been self-publishing with ebooks. But, now I want to go the traditional way of publishing with Steel Prison. I’ve had people edit it many times, including my mom. I sent it through Nano in 2009. The current of the manuscript count is 48,827 words and 109 pages long. I feel that it could be a bit longer. What I am looking for is a professional developmental editor. I have started my search and made a list comparing prices and their selling comments. In the past, I have used beta readers. But since this is going the traditional way, I decided to step it up and go professional. So far, I contacted an editor I follow on Google+, five editors on Linkin, and one of the writers from a writer chatroom that I frequent gave me a link to a bunch of editors. I haven’t checked the website yet, but I will do it tomorrow. I know that professional editing is not cheap and I don’t have that kind of money at the moment. So, I will make comparisons and come down to the most reasonable price that I can try and scrape together.

I also want to look for a literary agent as well. Ideally, I want to find one before Christmas. I have a website to start my search. I will start to look on Independence Day. Wish me luck, everyone. While I look for an editor and an agent, you can…

Dreamland

Title: Dreamland (Volume Two)

Summary: Now that Chikira has begun her battle with her Yume-no-Muso, she’s going to need all of the family support she can get. However, the problem mostly lies with her father, Jakuchu.

He is mostly at work so that he can pay for his daughter’s treatments. As a result, his marriage with Sana feels like walking on a tight-rope with his long periods of work-educed absences. Because of his daughter being bullied on her first day at her new school, Jakuchu might have to change how he does things. But first, he is going to have to come home. Starting with Chikira’s birthday.

Last Post of 2016 (Sort Of)

Well, the year is coming to an end.

Most people said that this year sucked, but it wasn’t too bad for me. I actually got a job and I still have it. I’m actually making money. (I still need to make more, but I can do it.) I kind need something new. I don’t really know what I am doing in 2017. In fact, I don’t know what’s going to happen in 2017.

Why is this sort of the lost post of 2016?

Because next week, I will begin the London part of my City Lounge project. I’m actually having fun with writing this project in this blog. There will be one more city to write about after I finish book one of London. I have so many ideas for that last city. But first, I have to go through London. Stick around for that next Monday. For now…

On her first day at a new school, she is harassed and shove into the classroom closet. After an episode of her yume-no-muso, Chikira’s teacher notices her condition and has her stay after class to talk.

Five Years Already?

March 11, 2011, an earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. Shortly after that, the country suffered from a nuclear melt down. It has been a long time, but the country is recovering nicely. I am happy that my favorite country can bounce back from tragedy. I am confident that they will have a strong future for years to come.

I haven’t checked on how Distorted Lullaby is doing. I will promote it again in another group this evening. Bride in Black is edited and waiting to be re-published. I wonder what I will edit next after that. I might finally be able to replace Pinky’s keyboard. (Pinky is my laptop.) I also got hooked onto a new show on HBO called Animals. I don’t know what to think about it, but I have to keep watching to try and figure it out. I’m also getting out my summer clothes this weekend. Yes, I am still job-hunting. -.- But, I will keep trying. For now…

What to Do Next?

Now that Sins of Women is finally published, what next? Oh yeah! Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked! That’s right, folks. Expect my short story collection, Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked to drop in September! Plus, there will be a couple more short stories waiting to come out as well. On top of that, I will be working on my annual project, LGBT Scream, in September. What is that, you ask? Every September since 2010, I collect LGBT-related stories, poems, lyrics, etc. and post it on a rainbow calendar.

The key goes like this:

Red: Yuri
Orange: Yaoi
Yellow: Bisexual
Green: Bisexual
Blue: Shounen-ai
Indigo: Transgender
Violet: Shoujo-ai

Whew! That’s going to be a lot in one month!
