Hello all, I hope you’re well.
In today’s post, I’ll be addressing, primarily the blog, my personal situation and announcing a timeframe set for Mr. Fatal’s Greatest Hits.
You may have noticed that I made a slight change to the update title. This was to match the picture. I have no shame in this confession.
I won’t pad too much on this post so let’s just jump right into it.
New Stuff, Coming Soon!
- Character Analysis: This will be experimental for this blog. I want to dissect fictional characters and see what makes them tick and why we are so drawn to them. This is something I do on my YouTube channel as well so I’ll be fluctuating this type of content between the two
- Short Story Analysis: Same deal with fictional characters, I want to see what draws us to various short stories and/or talk about some of the meanings behind them and so forth
- Poetry: If you’ve followed me from my various social media platforms, you’ll know that I have a poetry book published. A little odd considering all of my other work is horror. Anyway, I still write poems when I can’t really think of anything for my fiction or if I have a certain line in my head that I really like. I would like to share some of these poems with you guys, to have even more content for the blog.
I’ve got some really loopy stuff in mind for stories that will be coming down the road. What will you be getting? Well, I’ve been watching a lot of B-horror movies and would like to start experimenting with this story type in writing. I believe the intellectuals call it ‘bizarro’ fiction.
I’ll be honest, I have no stories finished at this time, but am working on one right now that is a real treat for the nostalgic kind from the 80’s and 90’s.
I currently have a handful of novel reviews written up and have been doctoring them. In all honesty, novel reviews are much more difficult than film or video game reviews because there is just so much ground to cover with them. I know I said I would try and review every book that I have read in the month of June, but that’s proving to be a bit more than what I had bargained for. I plan to publish at least four more novel reviews before my read-a-thon ends and I’ve got some pretty good stories to talk about here.
Next, are film reviews. I did have a few written but haven’t had the chance to edit them, considering I’ve been focusing on the novel reviews. However, I will be posting a few more somewhere down the road in the near future. So, if you enjoy my film reviews more, fear not.
Video game reviews, on the other hand, will no longer be posted on this blog. I have a second blog dedicated to gaming. Reviews, collecting, news, highlights, and collaborations related to the gaming community will be going here. The blog’s name is Game Quest and my goal is to fuse one of my favorite hobbies with my passion for writing to talk about things that would otherwise be out of place on this blog. I won’t be focusing as much on the horror genre and the community; I also won’t talk about my writing on Game Quest as much as this blog. So, if you enjoyed the video game reviews I have published on this blog or if you like gaming as a whole, I urge you to go follow Game Quest at: gamequesting.wordpress.com . Oh, and if you have a strong passion for gaming like I do and would love to collaborate with a group of like-minded people, please let me know, I’m currently looking for a bunch of contributors to help out with that blog.
Mr. Fatal’s Greatest Hits
Got a few more image teasers ready to go to share all over my social media. The manuscript’s first half is going through its second phase of editing right now, which is pretty cool.
I would really like to share one more story before the novel is released, but I’ll have to decide which one that will be.
Anyway, Mr. Fatal’s Greatest Hits will probably be released in fall of this year or, at the very latest, early 2020.
Time to get personal here and my apologies for doing so.
I recently started a new job that involves working overnights. I’ve been spending the past week and a half trying to change my sleeping schedule. I haven’t had to work for a few months now, considering my writing had sustained me. Unfortunately, I must return to having a day– night– job and adjusting my body to the new schedule has taken a lot out on me. On top of that, I’ve got a lot of family stuff going on and a vacation coming up pretty soon. Why am I telling you this, humble reader? Because the content on my blog will not be as regular as I’d like it to be. This is only temporary, mainly until my body can adjust to the new schedule. No, I’m certainly not going hungry or about to be homeless, I’ve just made bigger financial commitments than what my writing income can handle; commitments that are going to better the lives of my future family and my own.
I won’t go on much longer. My apologies if it sounded like I was venting, especially since I stated that I didn’t want to do that with this blog. Don’t worry, personal life updates will be very far and few between, they will not become a regular thing on this blog.
Well, that’s all for today’s update post. Got a lot of great stuff coming to you guys soon and we’re on the verge of getting a massive overhaul on this blog!
As always, thank you guys for reading this blog and supporting me in the ways that you do. You guys are frikin’ awesome.
See you guys again soon.
