Okay, so I promised myself I wouldn’t answer call for submissions so that I would have time to finally finish writing my occult novel Guardian of the Garden City. As a result, I’ve only been submitted stuff for four calls for submissions. Oy. But I’m finally finishing off the last call for submission (a novella about an Egypt-inspired fantasy realm), and then I can finally finish Guardian. Well, once I also finish rereading The Obscene Bird of Night by Jose Donoso, since that’s necessary background material for my book. But maybe, just maybe, if nothing else major distracts me for the next half year or so, I’ll actually have Guardian of the Garden City done. Man, that would feel so awesome. So, world, please don’t throw anything my way until it’s done.
