My New Gig and New (Blog) Home (For Now)

Keeping up with the "Oftentimes Un-Updated" part of this blog, it's been awhile since I've been here. I'm still writing, working on a YA detective novel every morning and I hope to have a readable draft ready by the end of the school year.  Cross your fingers and sacrifice a goat for me if that's your religion.

The bigger news is that back in October I was named the Cincinnati Public Library's Writer-in-Residence for the year.  The position will give me the chance to share my writing knowledge with people in the city through podcasts, a blog, and writing workshops.  The middle of these, the blog, is where I'll be residing (mostly) until my term is over.
Actual evidence of me being named writer-in-residence.
Easily faked evidence of the award.
Here's the link.  I'm focusing my position on helping people write novels, covering as many aspects of the process as I can.  That will also be the focus of my workshops which will begin in February.  More info on those coming up on the CPL's website or on the link I posted above.

Happy New Year, everyone!
