Now to the insecurity ... expect I don't exactly have much to go on this month. I may be too busy to be worried! Woven is coming in two months and it looks like I'll be making a big local splash all next year. Take a look at my updated schedule to see what I mean. This doesn't include what my publisher may plan for us. This should be fun!
To my surprise, I was invited to review quite a few Advance Reader Copies this year. 10 to be exact. That's a new record. And while I enjoyed them, it's unlikely I will be able to do that many next year, so I included a review policy to my contact information. Time is limited and I need to write myself. But it never hurts to ask!
Even with all this going on, I'm entering this month on a note of gratitude. I'm finding myself and I'm continually reminded that by some miracle (or other astrophysical anomaly), I am blessed. I've said it before; it merits repeating: I wouldn't be where I am today without the support of the writing community. You gave me a place to find my voice, and took me in when I had no clue what I was doing. In some ways I still don't. That should take care of itself.
Thank you my friends, a quadrillion times over.
Now with the holidays upon us, I am taking a leave of absence from the bridge. I still have some 500 blogs to visit from the promise I made last month, so I will keep that up and make my report in January. I wish you well, warm and safe. See you again in 2015.
I'm David, and I'm going Into the Woods and home before dark!
