a good week…..

There are a number of reasons why this is a good week, most of which are personal and therefore not fodder for my blog, but one of them is professional–

–and I still can’t talk about it in any depth, because part of it involves a non-disclosure agreement that I just signed. However, what I can say is that an editor e-mailed me out of the blue to ask if I was interested in a tie-in gig, I was, in fact, interested in the gig, we e-mailed back and forth about various things, and now it looks like I’m doing the thing.

I look forward to being able to talk about it at some point in the future. For now, though, it’s just nice to have been approached for a project like this. There have been many times over the past few years where I was genuinely concerned about getting tie-in work, as that’s really what pays the bills, more than the original stuff. (The latter may change if someone decides to pay me large sums of money to develop some of the original stuff into a TV show or movie or game or something, but that hasn’t happened yet, and I’m not exactly holding my breath, as blue isn’t my color.) I’ve only really had three tie-in projects over the past few years, one of which wound up not going anywhere after more than two years of work (though I did get compensated for the work I did), the other two of which were a single Alien novel and some Star Trek Adventures stuff.

In this shit year in particular, it’s very easy to fall into despairing tendencies and think that everything sucks. So this was very very very very very happy-making.
