Space Hiraeth – Escapism Playlist for Winter Depression

Something about this time of year, the cold of winter after the holidays when the magic has worn off, brings me back to the Space playlist I made last year. Maybe it’s my attempt to stave off the seasonal depression, seeking a little wonder. I sink back into those songs about leaving, flying away to a distant, hopeful place through the cold of space, the darkness of endless nights, waiting to touch down on a better world.

I still haven’t found a story for this character, Sola, she represents a longing, a waiting period, sorrowful for what she’s left behind as she flies away.

Shadows Book 4: Nova’s Love Update!

The red-pen phase of editing is complete so I just need to incorporate edits into my main document which unfortunately was on my Shadows USB drive that got fried this past September. It was a major blow to my outlines and I can’t get to about 2 years of work. I have a service looking at it right now and it might be salvageable. I’ll know in a few weeks. It sucks to deal with but I’ve also got a lot on my plate right now, trying to save up for editing, animation software and another trip to the Netherlands. The book trailer is coming along nicely, though it’s still an ambitious, huge project. Drawing Sola again was a nice palate cleanser. As soon as the book trailer is done I’ll get to work on the cover of Book4, which I already have a clear plan for. The original cover I did in my teens is still a great concept and I’m just going to redraw that. I’ll do a dedicated blog post to the cover like I did for HRD when the time comes. Still aiming for a Christmas 2023 release.

THE SHADOWS is available on Kindle and Paperback!
