I still don’t have the cover art for the children’s book, or for the short story. And I am still working on Fire and Forge.
I had a bit of a hang-up, on the last chapter. I couldn’t quite see how the various deities understood the travel method Hephaestus worked into the cars. I got that sorted out, and so far have just under 10,000 words, with 28 planned chapters to go.
As for life issues…well, they’re still there. I’m dealing. It’s just slowing down the writing process quite a lot.
