So … the late summer has been a bit of a rush.

In the last few weeks I have:

-had a project (Sorcerers) optioned for a television series by AMC

-was short-listed for the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award for Genre (for Pimp My Airship)

-The Usual Suspects came out in paperback

-had the Apex Magazine Kickstarter fund in a couple of hours, thus ensuring that I’m now an editor at Apex Magazine

-had my story “The Migration Suite: A Study in C Sharp Minor” picked up for a Year’s Best anthology

-done more (virtual) panels and readings than I can remember ever doing (not surprising since I rarely do panels or readings)

-won the Indiana Authors Award

Somewhere in there, I turned in my latest middle grade novel, Unfadeable (whose rewrites I thought might do me in) and wrote two short stories. I’m currently working on a new one as I bide my time waiting for the editorial notes for the first in my sf space opera series, Sweep of Stars.

All while I’m settling back into in-person teaching at my school (though I gave a talk to the parents of the school over the summer).

With that in mind, I really appreciate the support to my Patreon, which helps me continue to be active in the community. With that in mind, this month we look at:

-[AWESOME PICS]: with apparently a discussion on my writing workspace

-[AWESOME BLOG]: some thoughts on building a platform

-[AWESOME PIMPING]: a look at a WIP for a secret project

-[AWESOME COMMUNITY]: a look at being the resident Afrofuturist at the Kheprw Institute



As always, I appreciate your support of my Patreon. Words cannot express how encouraging it is, especially during these dark times. I really appreciate it…and each and every one of you. Thank you!

I launched a Patreon because some friends wanted a way to help support the work that I do in the community. If you would like to support it (and receive updates on the work that’s being done) please feel free to join. Thank you so much!
