So I succeeded in scaring myself by showing the first people what the next book is about. Publishing is actually terrifying for me, I get extreme stage fright and can only really do it when I think no one is reading anyway. But it’s started and what is done can’t be undone so that helps me stop waffling. A couple chapters are out for any patrons who want to see them and a couple more are out to my amazing epistemic community. There will be a lot more to the epistemic community in the upcoming month.
Besides that, I have also been heeding my friend’s admonition to take my own work seriously and I had the most wonderful luck in getting a brilliant designer to do the covers.
