First of all, I swear, yesterday, I had a post about androids. But, unlike today (where I woke up at 1a.m. with that delicious writing bug), I was in too much of a hurry to fix the technological issues. Nothing was posting or showing up right. Weebly or WiFi, one of those W-motherfuckers wouldn't let me post. Well, to be fair, I did manage to post my draft, a process that usually aggravates me because it takes so long.
All I said was that androids were playing a bigger part in The Harvest, bigger than I had planned. In fact, I am writing the sequel in my head based on 147-Paul. I know, I know. I should focus on one project at a time.
Also, I added links to the document upload partly for you but partly for me, so I could navigate through the draft. I haven't had time to insert the *.html anchors, but I will. Maybe this morning.
I also reconnected with the editor, Adam Gottlieb, of my short story collection. I am going to see him at an event this Saturday (https://www.facebook.com/events/1646103892154118/?hc_location=ufi) and offer some bones for his amazing work. He thinks he will be done by Tuesday or Wednesday with part 1 of Down South where the Water is Warm, which I am self-publishing independently of part 2. Part 2 has all the fun stuff, horror and magical realism, but I think two books makes more sense. I also got this braniac idea for the second cover using the same image; that way I won't have to agonize over how to design another cover.
I also finally found an artist to do the cover of my long short story "La Bruja del Barrio Loco," which I need to revise a few more times. I have been researching that curandera genre some more.
OK, it is 3:19a.m. and The Harvest beckons.
Hug your android today. #Resist.
