I am extremely disappointed that I can’t see my friends, meet new people, and network at WisCon this weekend. Because of an unexpected change in the publishing schedule for my upcoming Aletheia novella, I’m doing everything I can to finish it earlier so I can chip in. We have a hard deadline of June 1st, which is also the reason why I haven’t been able to work on The Violet War that much the past, few weeks. I hope everyone is doing well and I hope to see you at another conference soon.
Just to give you a feel for my writing workload these next, few days here’s a glimpse:

In other news, I’ve promoted my recent blog post about the potential of a content ratings for books on some industry newsgroups and some forums. I’d still like to do a proper write-up, but I was surprised by the strength of the responses it received. The comments here on my blog don’t really reflect the range of feedback; some folk responded vehemently, citing censorship and the broken systems that are currently out there. Others agreed that it was a problem with marketing and recommended types of content ratings as an alternative. Either way, it appears to be a cause for concern and I hope that you’ve had the chance to offer your thoughts since this is definitely not a “new” or “fresh” topic for discussion.
The good news is that it just started pouring rain here, perfect for writing in the zone.
