Interlude: Busy Week

Stand by for more excuses and whining.

Nah, nothing much going on for the moment. Very busy at work, no chance to write more Creepy and Hatboy right now, and still waiting for my stupid editors’ drafts (the drafts are stupid, not the editors).

Apparently there was a delay with the shipping, so CreateSpace has very kindly promised to refund me my postage expenses and send me a new shipment. This is an improvement on previous failures, which they usually replaced but didn’t refund me for.

It’s still annoying that I’ve lost a week and a half of March-April which should have been spent handing my copies over to editors and waiting for feedback. This whole thing is going to delay the release of The First Feast, which is irritating but oh well. I’ll still throw a party in early May, hopefully the editorial work will be done by then.

Otherwise I’m going to have to bounce the whole thing to June, and I don’t want to do that.

Some tight months ahead. My lanttumies Vuta and I took Wump and Toop car shopping yesterday, and we have settled on a car that’s going to set me back €200 a month for the next 5 years. Pretty damn reasonable for the quality of car, but it’s going to tighten the budget up a bit. I guess I’m really going to have to stop making foolish purchases instead of just talking about stopping making foolish purchases.

Still, more about that later. I’m not picking the new car up until Friday. In the meantime, here’s a teaser.

Guess which brand we’re buying!

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
