I hope that you’re all doing well, and whether you’re in the states and celebrate Thanksgiving now or not, I hope that you’re having a lovely time. Thanksgiving has a lot of very complicated feelings for a lot of people. It has some unpleasant aspects to its roots, to say the least.
My hope is that if you spend time with your loved ones, or if you take advantage of the sales, you do well.
My own plans, well, that’s between me and me, but at least some of it is going to involve reading, writing, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of my author copies for The Memory Remains.
In case you missed it, the third novel in the Silver Girl series has been released. It’s an important one for me, because it was the first that way back in the day didn’t come from any roleplay that was then turned into prose, and now it’s important for the way it is the first time that we have some real time to stop, slow down, and explore some of the realities of Sarah LaSilvas’s experiences.
Also, since the books take forever to link between ebook and paperback… if it still isn’t updated, this link will function for the paperback. The image above will work for the ebook, or this link in a pinch.
I know most people prefer to have these stories digitally, but for me, having this series in a physical form has been… incredibly important. It’s kept me motivated during times when it’s been incredibly hard to work through chunky bits of old writing, or write up new stories so everything keeps going in the meantime.
After this last chunk of Holiday is over, the only thing that remains before the end of the year of special note is the Winter holiday season.
Both this holiday, and the next bunch are all ones that are big, family, romantic partner, etc, holidays. That can be rough for a lot of people.
Please take care of yourself during this time. Self care is important, and it can be as simple as taking a moment to breathe, finding a way to get some exercise during the bad weather, or enjoying some harmless nostalgia to try to keep your mood up during rough times.
It sucks to feel lonely, or inadequate, or unloved during times where the whole world is going on about how important companionship, love, and family are. I don’t have any great words to say to many everything better, but as someone who has been in a rough patch a lot of the year, I wanna toss you as much of my support as I can… and recommend a couple of great, free stories you can get over on the EMCSA, or MCStories.com.
Doctor D has the amazing Blood on Parchment which recently wrapped up. It is astounding. Please give it a read, and give her your feedback. She writes such amazing prose, but never gets nearly enough response for it. She deserves it. The language she shapes is just… astounding.
Extracts from the Westriver Gazette is really amazing. It’s by an author I think you should all try to be aware of, Hypnotic Harlequin. This piece is rally inventive, fun, and I got a lot out of it. I hope that you will, too.
I think that’s all I have for you this week! I wanted to make sure to get The Memory Remains out before December. Back in January I made a point of saying in a lot of places that The Memory Remains would be out this year… and I didn’t want it to be December. November isn’t MUCH better, especially missing Silver Girl’s 14th anniversary, but it’s not quite as bad.
Until next time, take care of yourselves, and each other.
Thanks for stopping by.
