I've been a bit of a creative funk lately.

I've got Cutie Pi up for pre-order so I guess I'm all in.

We lost a couple of posts because of the server move, but I found Cutie Pi, plus a couple of other things I didn't know about, and you told me that I could only find Another Damn Shifter Book 2 because another writer wrote Book 1. Now we're up to date again! :D

I finally finished my Pi Day story and uploaded the manuscript and made the paperback.

Is that Cutie Pi? I pre-ordered the Kindle edition before, but I don't see a paperback option.

I'm still waiting for Amazon to approve it. Seems like they're all sleeping in this weekend.

Kind of a tragic story of the writing experience.

Wow, that's awful. And that's a couple of big name writers who exploited him. Kudos to this guy for releasing this video and owning up to his own behavior. I hope it makes an impression on somebody out there.

I'm honestly surprised Amazon didn't throw a fit because I used the symbol for pi instead of "Pi" on the cover.

It's been 5 months now since I submitted Murder the World to Baen. But I have no idea whether the epidemic has slowed things down there or not.

You'd think publishers, of all people, would adapt easily to working from home.
