An Update...

Things are still completely crazy in my neck of the woods. The documentary I'm working on for KUED (called "Normal, UT") is supposed to be done this week. That means that pretty much all of my available time is being sunk into that. But that doesn't mean there aren't other things going on. First: A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination is just about out. Kickstarter backers have received PDF copies of the book, the proofs from the printer are arriving tomorrow, and all of the other backer rewards are completed. It's going to be great. At this point, you can pre-order it on the Silence in the Library website, or you can enter to win a copy from Goodreads: Goodreads Book Giveaway A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination by Bryan Young Giveaway ends April 16, 2014. See the giveaway details at Goodreads.

Writing prompts....

I've been swamped lately. The PBS documentary, the two books, another documentary, and just... everything. It's kept me buried under water. I'm still keeping my writing routine, though. And I'm averaging 400-500 words a day on my book and another 1000 words a day in other writing (my various columns, pieces for magazines, etc.) I have a few short stories due as well, and I'm editing a pair of anthologies, too. Add to all of that the passing of Aaron Allston , and I'm not sure how I'm still going. About the only social media type stuff I've been able to make time for is my Instagram, Tumblr , and Twitter , where I've been dropping pretty frequent writing prompts to get people thinking. Here are a couple of recent examples. Until I'm out from under the weight of everything I'm up to, feel free to follow my  Instagram,   Tumblr , and  Twitter , to keep up with stuff like this.
