Virus update. We’ve reached 45,347 known cases and 893 dead. This means since last week we’ve had 2,313 new cases and 91 deaths. This includes the totals from today.

Book news. I’m 8,885 words into May’s and Catherine’s fifth story for Crimson Rose. I have about two weeks left to reach my 20,000 goal. I have the cover for Kira’s LitRPG story which won’t be released until Feb/March. The editor sent me the suggestions for Isabella’s, Cassidy’s, and David’s werewolf story in Bastet’s Daughters and Alex’s & Christie’s second one for Dyalessia Games. I plan to release the werewolf story tonight. I’m working through Alex’s & Christie’s and I’ll republish it when done. I’m about thirty pages into it and have sixty to fix.

I’ve written 15,740ish words this year towards my 280,000ish goal.

The free short story where Felia meets Bastet is one I offer on my mailing list.

I’ve changed my YouTube videos this year. I decided to do these Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday starting in February. This will allow me to make longer ones. However, I’ve added TikTok. I’m enjoying them since they’re fifteen seconds or a minute. Making quick videos is fun!

Gaming news. Warcraft dailies/weeklies are ongoing. Dragon Quest. I’m going to play Medium this week when it comes out. It caught my interest when I saw the trailer. Resident Evil Village looks awesome, but it won’t come out until later this year.

Reading for the week. The cover images are posted on Pinterest.
