Wit, def. (noun) – The keen perception and cleverly apt expression of those connections between ideas that awaken amusement and pleasure.
I think I’ve found it. My wit’s end. The end of my wit. The keen perception is iffy, cleverly apt expression is so so. I think amusement and pleasure are in serious jeopardy. They are actually shot to shit.
Wit (idiom) – At one’s wit’s end, at the end of one’s ideas or mental resources; perplexed.
Yeah – that’s more like it. Mental resources are very low and I am highly perplexed.
You may (or may not – shame on you) have noticed that I have not blogged in months. I have found that life, work and writing enabled me to keep a fairly robust blog going. Life, work and this process of self publishing… not so much. For these last months I have been immersed in setting up accounts, art, designing and re-designing covers, fonts, styles, articles of incorporation, tax documents, ISBNs, formatting, .pdfs, Mobi, blow me. Not to complain but IT FUCKING SUCKS. I can’t remember the last time I wrote something longer than 140 characters. I have actually come to rely on Twitter as a writing exercise because I am not writing. <— That is the saddest sentence I have ever written.
Here is the good news… If all goes well, even if all goes badly, Circling The Shadows will be available on Amazon Kindle and paperback on May 1. There is a tiny chance the paperback will lag a few days behind. If you are wondering, the idea of a big fancy launch with actual marketing, was just too much for me this go round. The irony is I am professionally in Marketing. Oh well. Forever Falling, book two in the Sunshine and Moonlight series, is ready to move into the editorial process. It will release with some larger fanfare, perhaps, on August 1.
My blogsite got a bit of a face lift. I added a page for Novels. You can read about Circling The Shadows here. I’ll add the Amazon links soon.

I understand your “saddest sentence” completely. Coming from a different genre, I have also relied on twit many times for similar reasons. Very best wishes for May 1.
Thanks for the twitter validation. I needed it!

Yes. Exactly that.
