Hold your mail!

I'm changing my PO Box! The old one is officially closed. I'll post my new address once that's all set up. So, if you were wanting to send me letters or books to sign, please hold onto them! My PO box mail will not forward! Stay tuned for the new address. More news:

  • As usual, whenever I release anything, I get a lot of questions about Boy. Boy is still in the works, though I've had to put it on hold for other projects. Death & Elsie is something to keep you all entertained for a while as I work on those other projects, which, at the moment, include another novel. But I'm reallyreallyreally going to try to put Boy out before 2012 is a distant memory! Cross my heart!
  • About that other novel: the one I'm currently working on is not a sequel to Skary Childrin and the Carousel of Sorrow, but I think it's something you'll all like if you liked Carousel. I can't say much about it right now, but I'll continue to make posts now and then about the process.
  • By the way, I get a lot of questions about an audiobook of Carousel. I'm not aware of any plans for an audiobook right now. The excerpts I posted were just a little something for the people who weren't able to attend the readings I did when the book first came out. If it ever does come up, however, I'll be sure to announce it. If my daydreams came true, Tim Jones would get to do the honors.
  • Death & Elsie Part 2 is called An Elephant's Memory and should, cross my fingers, be ready by this weekend. Part 3 will be out soon after.

The Latest

Since I've been away, here are some updates on, well, everything: Death & Elsie's been a little delayed due to computer problems on my part and illness/busy schedule for the narrator. I'll be in New York in a couple of weeks, but I'll be able to catch up on things soon. Boy is still on the slate for later this year. I've also just gotten my film invitation from DeviantArt, so I'll be able to upload videos to DA with a quickness! So, how are you all? Stop by Facebook or G+ and chat for a bit.

Happy new year!

Goodness gracious! It's 2012 already! And I have such things planned for this year. Boy will absolutely be out, hopefully earlier rather than later. I'm working on a new book. There will be new illustrations up on the site soon. I'm working on all sorts of things, really. I can't believe this is my seventh? Eighth? year of working on Skary! Let's make this the best one yet, eh?

You like it! You really like it!

As of this post, there are over 9,000 fans on my Facebook page, almost 25,000 YouTube subscribers, 2200+ Twitter followers, and 200-some folks have me in their Google+ circle. Let's not get started on the messages in my inbox right now. ;-) I'm not bragging - okay, I'm totally bragging, but I'm also saying thank you to all of you for following along, and for interacting with each other and me! You all continue to make it worth it. Here's a look at what's on my project list right now:


Progress Report Time

And now for your regular update of Things Katy Is Working On:

  1. Boy
  2. My second novel
  3. Finishing up "Don't Go Near the Old Ash Tree" (a minute-long short I attempted to finish all in one night about a week ago and obviously didn't succeed)
  4. Eating a taco (75% complete)
  5. *drumroll* plans for next month's 31 Days of Halloween.

Maybe I'll stick a live video chat in there somewhere if you're good and eat all your vegetables. Sound good?

Oh heavens!

I've gone and turned 30 some time in the night. The 10-year-old in my head is greatly displeased. The 70-year-old in my head says, "Pipe down, whippersnapper!" But the artist in my head promises that this year will be filled with all the illustrated blood and written guts you can shake a stick at. Growing up is for somebody else to do, I say. ;) Coming soon: all of your recent fan art (it's wonderful!), some new illustrations, a calendar for 2011, and more prints.

Coming later: a cartoon called Boy, and a novel about some Skary Childrin.
