I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story on the WoW RP forum. This week’s update takes the characters through the Ultraxion and Blackhorn encounters in Dragon Soul.
Some of you have emailed me to ask if I plan to revise Part IV and to make the whole thing available on various ebook sites. I am considering it. If I do, it will have to be for free because I really do not want Blizzard’s legal department coming after me. I will probably ask a friend of mine to do some covers and a few illustrations for the books if I do decide to go that direction.
For now, I have work to be about so I’d best get back to it.
I’ve not forgotten about this place and I’ve not forgotten about my novel. I’ve been working on it and just have gotten so busy with other things that I’ve not found time to update this site.
Quick overview: Midnight of Lanar’ya is nearing completion of the first draft. I will be releasing a new edition of Twilight of Lanar’ya to correct a few formatting errors and typos that some of you have spotted (and thanks for those!) I imagine that there will probably be up to three revisions of Midnight of Lanar’ya before I publish it. I’m also planning to do a few things different with releasing it to take care of some of the problems I had with the release of Twilight of Lanar’ya.
And now, I’m going to get back to work on writing. The more time I spend on that, the sooner you’ll have the book in hand.

Life has gotten almost back to normal for me now. I’m working my way through Midnight of Lanar’ya and, once it’s published (I’m tentatively eyeing a Q4 2012 release) and the next book is underway, I’ll have more free time to dedicate to my next major undertaking. As always, keep an eye on my author site for the latest news there.
For now, I’m going to play a little WoW on my US account and then get some more math homework done before settling in for a long writing session. I’m going to have my vision checked tomorrow and get some glasses so that I’m not frickin’ blind by 11 pm anymore.

Life has been absolutely insane for me lately. Added together with the fact that I’m 1) teaching myself higher mathematics because I’ve half-decided to pursue a degree in Physics in my spare time, 2) I’m working on Midnight of Lanar’ya, 3) my eyesight is getting worse (appointment for glasses this Friday!) so that, after about 10:30 pm, I’m functionally blind, and 4) I’ve been forced to deal with irrational, overly-emotional crazy women last week and it’s probably down to sheer luck and laziness that I haven’t nuked the world from orbit. Just to be sure, you know?
My new job is going well, though. My bosses and I are getting used to each other and I’m finding it very enjoyable to be raising my company’s profile via social media and blogging. I’m also learning new things every day about an area of life I had little interest in before now (getting paid to be interested in something is quite an encouragement to develop said interest toute de suite) as well as blogging about things that interested me anyway. It’s win-win. I’d love to get back into the industry I was in, though, but I’m not too fussed about it at the moment.
Some people have asked me what happened with going to law school. I’ll give you a quick answer that I’ll expound upon later. Short answer: it’s too expensive and too many lawyers can’t find work in law at the moment due to the economy sucking a big egg. So, I’ve decided to stay in the market working and save up my money for a degree in science (provided I can master the math). Later in life, if I decide I want to get a law degree and I have sufficient money to do so without having to choose between eating and school, then sure, I might get one then. Not to become a lawyer but simply because law, like physics, is something I’ve always been somewhat interested in.
And now, I’m going to sleep while I can still see well enough to get back to my room.
