There's no excuses. I quit.
That's what it boils down to. I quit doing something I love for other things I love. That's why I haven't released a book since 2018 or updated this website since 2019. It's pathetic, but that's what happened. I quit being an author in every way possible. So.....now what?
Well, first there's IMAGINARIUM BOOK FESTIVAL. I started planning this back in 2018 with my friend/fellow author Nadege Richards, and after battling our way through three cancellations due to this stupid ass pandemic, we finally hosted the first one in 2021. Mind you, it was virtual, but that didn't make it any less awesome. It was actually fantastic and I'm quite proud to say I'm one of the co-founders of this dope ass festival.
Right now, we are in the midst of planning for 2022 and it's going well! We have some really talented authors lined up and the festival should be a lot of fun. I'm not going to reveal all the things we are planning but starting in the early fall leading up to the festival (which is scheduled for May 21, 2022) we have lots of promotional activities planned and they'll be engaging for everyone I think. I'm planning something special in particular for our YouTube channel so I'm pretty excited about that.
Now for author shit. I don't really know what to say about it. I want to get back to it, but on the flip side, I almost feel like I'm in deniable that that part of my life is over. Maybe my being an author was only for a season and that season is over. But then again, I refuse to accept or use this excuse. I've left so much unfinished and it's driving me crazy.
So WTF am I gonna do about it, you ask?
I have no fucking clue.
But when I figure it out, I'll post it right here. Until then, look forward to posts about Imaginarium and other random shit that's happening in my life. That's the best I can do for now.
