If you are a friend of this blog, you know that I’ve been over at John Scalzi’s site, being all managerial and stuffs. I’ve also been swamped with the real life day jobbe, the night life narration job and the raising of three kids.
Here’s a brief update on everything:
Site Management for katebaker.net
1.) I’ve updated the front page of katebaker.net. Now complete with monsters. My friend Pete says they are dinosaurs. I’m going with a pure logic thing here. They are attacking people and eating them. Unless you subscribe to the whole Creationism thing, they are monsters. Because monsters can totally co-exist with humans. Dinosaurs can’t. So there. Nyah.
2.) I’ve also put a link up on the front page to the book in which I was recently published. Sybil’s Garage is a great read if I may say so myself. Help support Matt Kressel and the wonderful job he and his associate editors do every year.
3.) I’ve updated the narration page. Whew. I’ve read a lot this year so far. I can’t wait until I do the tally at the end of the year.
Kids & Dad
1.) William is in his second week of football. I couldn’t be more proud of him for sticking with the tough practices and I can’t wait to see him on the field.
2.) Lexie and Allie are getting ready for school. Lexie has received her 4th grade room assignment as has Allie for kindergarten. I promise I won’t cry on the first day of school.
3.) Dad continues to be in good health and we continue to celebrate it. He’s been out flying his remote control plane and hopes to add another to his collection.
1.) I will be doing a lot of traveling in the coming months. I have muliple meetings planned for the day jobbe. I’ll be in Boston, Vegas and probably Miami Beach again.
2.) Interspersed with that is the fun stuff.
- On August 28th, I will be traveling to NYC to be on The Hour of the Wolf with the awesome folks of Sybil’s Garage. I might even be able to read my story on air if time allows.
- On September 3rd, I will be traveling to DragonCon. I am participating in Stroll with the Stars, along with attending the Parsec Awards as a nominee, and will be getting up early on Sunday to partake in the Hugo Awards breakfast. It looks to be a very exciting weekend. Wish Clarkesworld Magazine and me luck.
- In November, I will be going camping again in Southeastern Oklahoma.
3.) I start college classes again next week. Mondays will be Digital Photography. Tuesdays will be Lit & Comp. Online course consists of Children’s Literature. Wish me luck with an already very busy schedule.
I will definitely update here more often. I have learned through my stint over on the Whatever, that writing in general helps with the craft of writing. If I am to get any more stories published, I’ll need all the practice I can get.
