I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel on OTS #2 though admittedly I think it won’t be out until midsummer at the rate I’m going. But all is not lost. Good things are happening and I’ve actually sold some experimental fiction (in short format). I’m not sure when or how that will turn out but I’ll keep you all up on that as it progresses. My Neighbor Enslaved is also underway. I’m expecting a summer release there, too. It looks like the distribution through the online dealer is still a go. We’re working it out. 🙂   I also hit goal over the weekend (the goal is to sell 5000 books a month).  This writer is NOT complaining. Especially since NF sales were considerably down this month (they usually are).

In other news in addition to Rites of Belphagore I’m doing some work with planetary spirits this month. With this last Mercury retrograde giving birth to a book a sentence at a time was the best I could hope for. Not all retrogrades have this effect on my writing productivity, just some of them.  My FB Friend Rufus Opus gave me some pointers on Jupiter that I plan on looking into. 😉  Seriously – he writes good books! Grab a few.  I also have every intention of doing some Mercurial work to get my productivity back on track (I’ve got deadlines coming up fast).  This year has been forthright in teaching me process on my Path of Ptah.  I am hoping to be able to finally – truly and completely finish my Path of Ptah and become as manifested Ptah by the end of the year. Of course Ang reminded me that I will have to feed Ptah regularly to keep the manifestation alive. Basically – it can’t be forgotten.

Of course I’m getting ahead of myself (like usual).  I better get back to work. It’s a payroll week and some things will just have to wait.
