I continue to strive to thrive.
I've found that some of the same things just keep repeating and repeating. Things do seem to go in cycles, eh? But, they're not worth repeating.
I had had high hopes for my last book, Gray Locke: The Witch of Clover Hill. I would have liked to have had a board game to go along with the release, (it was in the process of happening, but it fell through).
I had also planned on releasing two songs to accompany the book's release. But that fell through as well. (It's a long story that I won't get into now.) But, I had recently shopped around for musicians to perform and record them. I do believe I have one group interested in performing one of the songs. However, the other song is still soundless.

One thing that has irked me these days are ... well, some people. Like, why wouldn't the local media, (Berkshire Eagle, North Adams Transcript, The Advocate, and iBerkshires), print the press release I sent them for my book?
Since the release of my second book, I've been at work on the third one. The story itself is finished. I'm just filling in the details. Then, afterward, I'll edit it down, and so forth.
The plan, after the third book, is to continue with a story that I actually wrote before the first book. That story will be the fourth book - a script. It is a children's musical. However, at this particular moment in time, its fate is uncertain ... very uncertain. There is no question or doubt in my mind of whether or not I can write it. It can be and will be written. The uncertainty is, when will it be written. The answer to that question depends on other people.
So, that's the gist of it all these days - in the life and times of one named Craig.
