I was mostly a stay-at-home dad this summer, which is why I surprised myself by being (relatively) super-productive on the fiction writing front. I should be thanking my wife and parents for their share of the childcare (Thanks!), and local coffee shops for use of their facilities. Also managed a lot of reading this summer, which was a nice change from the way things had been going during several previous summers.
If you weren’t already aware, I’m currently posting a monthly digest of fiction on my crowdfunding page (www.patreon.com/JonHakes). Each issue is available as a subscriber exclusive for a period of one month, after which I either release the issue publicly on Patreon, or hold it back while I submit the work to a traditional market. Come on over and be part of the experiment. If you dare… Bum-bum-BUMMMMMM!!! … Okay, inappropriate overtones of suspense…
I’m going to be releasing each of the nanofiction pieces from my Digest issues (starting with Issue #5). I will put them out on my Facebook page and Twitter account, and will also start archiving them on this site. If you see one drifting around in the Internet-sphere, feel free to share it with people.
I’ve also been making a lot of progress on other short stories, outside of the digest. I have a few out in submission now, and a few more that will hopefully be ready in the ever-popular not-too-distant future. More as it develops.
I promise to be back in less months than last time. Circumstances permitting.
