So, some of you may have noticed my absence ... and wondered, "hey, where is Matt, and what's up with the writing?"
Well, since about the start of May I embarked on a journey/adventure that is going to fill the next six years of my life. I enlisted in the U.S. Army and completed ~10 weeks of basic training.
It was quite a bit of fun, as well as quite challenging at times ... but I am happy with my decision. The good news is, I have reached a point where I have free time during the week and on the weekends ... and I am allowed to use my Surface Pro (my main writing device) so I am excited to say my writing and edits have resumed!
A novella should be coming out soon, hopefully within these next three or four weeks on Kindle, so standby for that. Just going through a final phase of editing and getting the cover art ready!
Thanks to everyone who supports my writing endeavors and reads my work! I am eager to get back to the craft. I hope y'all enjoy this upcoming novella as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I post on this blog rather sporadically as some of you may have noticed! As I balance out writing with "the day job" I will do my best to post more consistently.
I am also posting my latest novel "Traitor's Games" piece by piece on Wattpad. Revision 3 is almost finished but reader feedback is exceptionally valuable and wattpad offers a good way to get granular comments and polish improvements on the manuscript! See the link at the bottom of the site under my connect info for more ways to view content.
In the future I plan to have a set schedule for posting about other writing-related things, or topics in my interest field such as Table Top War Gaming and Video Games.
Thank you for your support and feedback!
