I am giving up on traditional publishing for now. The process had been draining. The dream is still there, but I am not convinced that it is something I need to pursue. I don’t like the process and I want to retain control of my work. Self-publishing offers that opportunity. I am willing to invest in some current manuscripts and risk that they will be absolute failures. I have confidence that they will be successful and I will keep writing and growing regardless.

February 2022

I have another new book written for another series for a younger audience. I will also need an artist for this

I have reworked the background of the Grobug series and I feel confident about pushing the series forward. My wife did advise me to add at least one more book to the series which sent me into a tailspin. I have since gotten my bearings straight. The plan is to push off Grobug 2 for now, so I can write Grobug 4 or is it 0? It may become the first in the series. Grobug 2 would get pushed back to February, Grobug 3 to March. Would I be able to find an artist for 4 books to publish them by the end of April? I am not sure.

A friend is working on art for MTM, my breastfeeding book. That book is standalone and can be launched on its own. When? I am not sure. Early 2022 is the hope. I need to make a plan for it.

Look here for updates on the status of my books.

Stick around for my analysis, art and writings as I work on these bigger projects.

I am planning to keep “writing in public,” so you can get a sneak-peek at the Grobug series and more.

I made a rig to record drawing sessions.

I plan to get back to regular, consistent analysis soon.

Why is there a cost to Tarou’s power? Why does Tarou have these rules? Who set them for him and the rest of the Donbrothers? Is Sonoi’s power or the Beastial part of the cost of Tarou’s power?
