As I'm sure most readers of this blog realize, my long-anticipated sequel, The Weller: Fear of the Dark, has been in the works for a while. Depression, for-hire work, and side projects that didn't pan out have all contributed to the wait. Well, I'm hoping that the wait will soon be over. This year, I'm going to take part in National Novel Writing Month in an effort to spur myself into action and get my butt in gear on this book.
It won't be easy, because I'm an agonizingly slow writer, but I'm hoping that at the very least I'll be able to crank out a sizable chunk of the book before the deadline. Since I don't have any more conventions, signings, plays, etc lined up for the rest of the year, it's certainly doable. At the very least, I'm going to try, damn it. I owe it to you all.
Feel free to follow my progress here, or become my supporter on Patreon for the privilege of reading the book before anybody else. I also post concept art, notebook scans, and other exclusive behind-the-scenes material there.
And don't worry, what you see at the top of this post is not the final cover. It's just a placeholder until I get proper cover art commissioned. Your Patreon contributions will help fund that.
In the meantime, if you haven't already, check out the previous installments in the Weller series, The Weller and the short story The Weller: Night of the Cicada.
Well, back to work. Wish me luck, friends!
