While this is definitely a blog, one I draw from my personal experience to write, I do try and keep my personal and public lives separate in this space. In fact, as an inveterate introvert, sharing anything on social media is a bit of an anathema to me. But this is my public face, so I probably owe it to the three people who read this a month to let you know what's going on.
I could write a full blog post about what's going on, but I figure the picture will probably save me a thousand words:
Only two days old and already needs a haircut.
Yep, that right there is my spawn, my little angelic monster whose only goal seems to be ensuring no one but him sleeps more than four hours a day (and never consecutively).
Now I should probably point out that I'm one of those that HATES baby pictures. I mean, seriously, what makes you think your kid is so special that you need to show off 27 pictures of him sleeping, and eating, and probably pooping? That interests NO ONE unless they are somehow related to said kid. Everyone else just sees these pictures as proof that the person proffering them has fallen into the cult of kid, where they think their experience of childbirth/ rearing is somehow unique even though we've basically been doing this as a species since... well, we became a species.
Which is the long way of me saying this is probably the only picture of my monster I'm ever going to show. Yeah, I'm taking dozen of pictures of him every day, but this the only one I'm going to foist on you folks. And the only reason I showed it is to explain to you why I'm going to take a bit longer to get back into my groove.
Because there's A LOT on the horizon. The Imbued Lockblade, book two in my Sol's Harvest series, comes out November 20th (to probably be drowned out here in the states by Thanksgiving), because I for some reason thought it would be a good idea to launch a book around the same time as having a kid. And I have something even bigger in the works that I hope will cause some waves. But until I can share all that with you, please know I'm working despite all the radio silence.
