With springtime just around the corner, I've been working hard on upgrading the sites and getting ready for my next big project. SPOILERS: it's Go-related!
If you play Go, you're going to love it, and if you don't play Go yet, maybe it'll convince you to give it a try.
In April, I'll be exhibiting at the Spring Geequinox again, and I'll likely have something to show you by then, as well as a few more suprises.
EDIT: Geequinox is unlikely to happen but the title ended up being pretty accurate.

Didn't do a ton over the winter, although I did spend January bringing a dormant project nearly to completion. In the next month or so, I should be putting out a new free game in the same style as Diamond Find.
I also figured out what my major project will be for this year, and it's a departure from my usual. It's still going to be a comedy, but it'll draw more upon real technical knowledge than my regular cyber-fantasies. More updates later.
I'll also have a new version of wolfOS, my proprietary convention-table operating system. If you didn't see its debut at Hal-Con, it granted coupon codes to whoever could hack into its secure datavault. Maybe this year it'll have a bigger screen? I haven't done up a realistic budget yet.

I'm sure winter has been hard on all of us here in the Maritimes. Between the biting cold & the hours of darkness, I wouldn't blame anyone for losing the motivation to write.
On that subject, I haven't been doing a ton of that this winter, but nevertheless, I'm going to be selling the books I've previously written at this year's Spring Geequinox. Why don't you drop on by? It's the weekend of April 22nd, and on the Sunday I'll be running a panel on Go.
I am still planning to have Volume 2 of Snapback done for Hal-Con this fall, though. If you haven't read Volume 1, the eBook is only $0.99. Or half-price if you also buy Ghostcrime! A whole dollar is pretty steep, I know.

Happy spring, everyone! Geequinox was great, and I was really pleased that a few people stopped when they saw I was selling books. Even moreso that no one said, "I hate books! I hate reading!". That's right, person-at-Hal-Con; I'll never forget you.
Sort-of-chilling jokes aside, I sold a bunch of copies, and the people who bought them seemed like the type who'd enjoy them. Hopefully they're also the type to leave reviews on Goodreads. I've got international markets to enter here.
Since the convention, I've been doing some seasonal cleaning in preparation for the coming months. There'll be a few new releases, including the second edition of Ghostcrime and the long-awaited Snapback serial novel. Better set aside some time in your digital calendar for reading, because, if nothing else, it's a good habit to get into.

I'm mostly a recluse, but occasionally I try to get out and interact with my readership. And while meeting all three of them is pretty overwhelming, it's also very rewarding.
So come down to Spring Geequinox 2016 at the Halifax Forum on April 23rd and 24th and say 'Hi', and if you buy a copy of Ghostcrime, I completely understand.
Each copy comes with a free gift! The remaining first editions won't last long.
