Anything Can Happen On Halloween

Haven't blogged in a while. Been busy getting my yearly short story quota out; should be some decent news coming from that department within the next few weeks. Now Ive moved onto my super-secret-awesome project that Ive been working on for forever now; an epic fantasy that's been growing, evolving, and nagging to be written for the past 20 years or so. The actual writing of it began somewhere in 2004 with huge gaps in between to work on other projects and real jobs but the end for being done with the first installment is nigh. Part of the reason its taken me this long is for one: its huge; 2 distractions as mentioned above, and three: I want the work to be as perfect as possible before I shove the mountain of pages in front of an editor. The last thing I want this to be is a flop, especially after twenty years of effort, both mental and physical.
All told, we're lookin at around 8 books in total to complete the story. That's not an arbitrary guess; Ive outlined the entire story and it will take at least 8, though not more than ten--hopefully. But it all starts with Book 1 which--barring holidays, natural disasters (a hurricane and an earthquake in New England in the same month? WTF?) and any other work-related distractions--will be done and sent in by the end of the year; from there, its up to the editor gods.

And to update on The Forvian Sphere, which was supposed to be out this month:it prob wont be out till mid-December now due to an editorial backup over at Spore Press. Ill keep you posted.

In the meantime, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Ill be in South Lowell tonight 6-8 making my rounds; Ill be the one dressed as a shadow so you might not be able to see me; just crow like a rooster and Ill find ya if you're in the neighborhood; (just don't howl like a werewolf, there'll be too much of that going around already).

Here's a little vid to mark the occasion; it used to be a fav of mine as a kid, now...well...here it is:
