Note: If you submitted any project requests, queries, or book reviews to ScribeCat.ca in the last month...the database had a bit of a hiccup after an update. I think I've responded to everyone—with my profuse apologies—but just in case I couldn't retrieve your data, please feel free to submit again or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. My apologies again for these technical difficulties.
I feel like "How are you?" is a loaded question lately, with good reason, of course. There's stress and strain on all systems and all I can hear is Scotty yelling, “I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain!” (Yes, I'm well aware that line was never actually said by the original USS Enterprise Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott.)
I hope everyone out there is doing relatively okay—relatively is the appropriate adverb, I think. If, under the circumstances, we're still relatively holding it together, I'll take that as a win.
My cat Alice is exceptionally content to have her humans at her beck and call twenty-four seven. I'm happy to oblige since, for my part, most of my corporate contracts are on indefinite hiatus due to Covid-19 but one big one is still trucking along, as well as individuals (my favourites, if I'm honest).
I certainly have some free time to scribble away. I'm still working on an anthology release this summer and a novel release at the end of the year (or maybe the start of 2021). I'm trying to think of the best way to present my journey in self-publishing so far. The journey itself has been stuttering in the last month but, like many of you I'm sure, I'm trying to find ways to carry on!
So, I hope, dear readers, you're doing relatively okay and keeping safe! 💖
