Work Update

It’s been a little while since I posted one of these (or has it?), so I thought I’d give everybody a quick rundown on what’s going on up in Nate’s brainpan.

By Monday, I’ll have finished the first draft of Tower Four. I can’t let this one sit that long before rewriting, though, because an editor actually wants to take a look at it.  Man, that’s such a difference from a year ago, when I’d finish something and have to ask myself “What now?”

To buy me some time, however, I’ll be working on two short stories.  I should be able to bust them out in a week, but we’ll see.  One of them will be the first story featuring a rather interessting character I’ve been working on, kind of Aurora, Indiana’s own white trash version of Constantine.

So once those are done, I finish up Tower Four, then it’s time for A Family Matter‘s final polish.  This chain of events should take me to September 1st, at which point I’ll starting working on Something Awful at full speed.

Of course, that’s subject to change.  I realize that I really do need to get more short stories out there.  There are still too many editors who don’t have the slightest clue who I am, let alone the people who don’t know who I am.

As an aside, I have two comics pitches that should be going out to established companies soon.  Of course, the odds of selling either are slim, but trying’s still fun as hell.
