In many respects, self-employed life and quarantine life don't look very different. I was social distancing for a good month before stringent measures came into effect here, just writing code, blog posts, spreadsheets, etc. In terms of work style, not much has changed for me.
But of course everything has changed.
Will people still want cutting-edge Go software in the world after the pandemic? What about stories about badgers? If I even manage to survive, will any investors be left? I'll need someone to give me truckloads of money.
Stay safe everyone.

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 :(

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.
