I’ve been a little sporadic lately, but for once it’s because I’m so busy rather than unmotivated. Throughout September I’ve been to so many author events and reading so many incredible stories, it’s hard to keep up with reviews and posts, but I am hoping to change that this coming weekend and get some good stuff queued up since I have a ton of reviews to get to.
Now let’s get to the updates, shall we?
Yesterday I got my first package from House of Anansi Press to review some recent releases and I am so unbelievably excited about that and will be doing something of a late night unboxing after yet another event I will be attending tonight. This is the first time I’ve received physical copies from publishers in exchange for reviews and I am so excited!
Next up in news is that I have started a Patreon with a new serial project! If you follow me on Twitter, you may already know what it’s all about, but if you don’t I’ll be doing a separate post within in the next day or two when I update it with the next chapter, but if you want to check out my latest project right now you can find everything you need to know at Patreon.com.
Finally is something a little more substantial. I’ve decided to move out of Toronto and back to my home town where I will be going back to school for library studies. All I have ever wanted to do is write, but if there is one thing I’ve learned it’s that not everyone in the writing community is fortunate enough to support themselves on their art alone and it’s time I found something I genuinely love to do. And that’s library work. The move itself will be a rather significant adjustment as my hometown has never been a very positive place in my mind, but it will be worth it for the sake of my own health to get out of the city for a bit while I focus on getting the life I want.
The move won’t really effect any of my online presence other than I may not attend as many events as I have this month, but I can live with that. My PO Box will remain the same until otherwise stated as well so no worries there. I’m honestly just looking forward to the chance to get my life together the way I want to and am lucky for the chance to be able to do that.
Stay tuned for some upcoming event posts as well as reviews of some truly incredible (and Canadian!) books.
