Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes yesterday
I really do appreciate it. I found out one of my favourite authors is continuing her trilogy that ended in 2008 (Cornelia Funke, her Inkworld series) so that had me freaking out all over the place. Then I found out another one of my favourite authors (Brom) already came out with a new book! Which, I immediately purchased. So it was a pretty good day as a whole.
On to the writing news!
I still haven't heard word on when my newest publication, Real Doll,
is coming out. But I am going to pre-warn all of my watchers interested in reading it: this is not a story for anyone under the age of 18. It deals with necrophilia. As most of my watchers know, I am not a fan of censoring my own writing and refuse to put up content labels. That is a personal choice of mine. That doesn't mean I will not dispense a content warning when one is validated. This publication will be available as a free PDF download to everyone (there will also be a physical version you can purchase and have shipped to your home). So read at your own discretion. I will not be held responsible for you reading this publication and then being upset about the content.
My first publication, Dryad
, came out October 21st. It is featured in a magazine that offers both physical and digital copies. So you have two options. If you're not too sure about purchasing the issue, you can read my blurb about Dryad
on my writer's blog: georgespisak.wordpress.com/201…
In regards to my writing blog: every Friday (usually around noon my time), I post a blog post. Usually about writing/being a writer. There will also be story blurbs, project updates (like my novel, the Underneath), and short stories published on the blog. DA will be getting the short stories that are posted on my blog. If the short story is written for a DA contest, then the story will be posted on DA first. If the story is part of a writing challenge found on another person's blog, then it'll be posted on my blog first. Either way, both DA and my blog will be getting the same free content uploaded. It's just a matter of timing.
Onto the big news!
I'm working on my first self-published project. I'm currently working with an illustrator to create a horror picture book for adults. I'll be writing a blog post about it in the coming weeks and will be linking that post on my DA page. I'm really excited about this project and I'm hoping it'll be successful! Wish me the best of luck!
I hope you're all having a wonderful week.
