“Where the Hell Have You Been, Dave?”

If anyone’s looking at this blog anymore, you might have noticed that I haven’t updated it in around two years. I haven’t published anything new in all this time, and I haven’t announced any further writing projects after the Jump 225 trilogy — the last installment of which (Geosynchron) came out in February of 2010.

The main answer about where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing can be answered with a single photo:

Abby and Benjamin, September 2011

These are my kids, and basically I’ve been spending all of the spare time I used to spend writing raising these two. Can you blame me?

Have I completely abandoned my writing career? Am I working on anything new? No and yes. I’ve been toying with three or four different projects in the past few years, but have yet to really commit to any one of them. The latest project I’m excited about is a novel with a working title of The Island of Shakespeares. Once the kids are off in school, I intend to jump back in to the writing with more vim and vigor, and at that point I’ll entertain the idea of blogging again.

In the meantime, I do still post updates fairly regularly in three different venues: Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. Follow me there, or friend me, or whatever.

And if you’re starving for some of my fiction, read Jump 225 again. I’d like to think it can withstand the scrutiny of multiple readings. In fact, I think it’ll be better the second or third time around. (Then again, I’m biased.)

    Don’t put in balance the children over a book.

    I completely understand, and am glad you are able to devote time to your kids, but just know that there are loyal readers out there, just drooling for some more of your work. We can be patient. I even got my future son-in-law into you. I lent him my copy of Infoquake and the next thing I know he’s ordered the other two off Amazon! Just keep us posted as much as you can? ;-)

    I usually don’t read books twice – but since your picture and post brought me to tears I think I am going to break my rule. I am starving for your writing and the world you created in Jump 225, I miss it so much!

    Thanks for that, Teressa. (And the rest of you as well.) :-)
