Just letting people know I'm still here. And still writing.
Things have been a bit busy, with work and life and cancer in the family and all the horrible shit that goes along with that. I've been writing where I can, and have made some progress. The next chapter in the Life of Riley series is underway and is currently titled Stand in Stone Circles. There's also been progress on Borderlines, although that's slow going. I know where I want to go with the story and how it's going to end, it's just that writing two completely different styles of books requires different mindsets for each, and switching from one to another sometimes doesn't come easily.
And I keep thinking 'I'll just polish this chapter up then post it', and that chapter becomes another and then another and next thing I know another month has gone by. And I've still got to work on the epub and cover art for Lies in Red Leaves. And, yes, I have looked at some of the AI options popping up out there, and can safely say they won't be replacing artists yet. They can make pretty pictures, but getting a specific image rendered out the way the artist imagines it, that they can't do. Yet. Could be handy for layout and viz work though.
But I will get something posted. Soon. Just have to get this chapter finished...
