Things are Significantly Better

Sun Feb 15, 2015, 8:37 PM
Hey guys.

Wow. I can't believe it's been a full year since I updated here. Sorry bout that.
The last year was rough. But the year before it was far rougher. This year, I've made a lot of improvements. I've finally gotten back on my feet, mostly.
I'm still not making art much. My wrists have a condition called De Quervain's Syndrome. It makes a lot of pain in my wrists that is worse with holding a pencil. But I can type at least.

So I'm not going to get long-winded, but here's a few highlights:

1. I have solved several of my severe health issues.
2. I have come to terms with my gender identity. (Yay!)
3. I'm happy to announce that I've taken up writing and am 1/3 of the way through my first novel, writing at a super fast pace.
4. I'm preparing to move to Portland, OR some time later this year.
5. I do at least still sketch sometimes, and I'm working on photomanipulating my book cover. 
6. Gay marriage has finally been legalized in my home state, and my partner of 14 years said yes. :)

So there's a lot of positive notes!
I'm expecting to publish my first novel within the next few months. It'll be the first book in an Urban Fantasy series with a snarky lesbian MC. 
I have a website here: DarksbaneBooks.com where my wife and I will be presenting our books together. Please sign up for my mailing list if you'd like updates on when our books are published!
My wife's series will be a Space Opera with several LGBTQIA characters as well. (And let me tell you, it's based on the best story we've ever come up with.)
You can get updates from both of us if you join the mailing list on my site. :)

Also, I'm currently looking for beta readers! If you'd take interest in reading our stuff for free, helping us make it better, receiving credits and thanks, and/or just being a part of our creation process, and have time to commit to the project, please check out my forum post for full details: forum.deviantart.com/community…

That's all for now, I suppose. 
My life has pretty much turned upside down in the past couple of years. I'm hoping it keeps turning. 
I miss you guys. Thanks to everyone who stuck with me through my really dark places. I'm hoping that the darkness stays at bay. I'm really enjoying being a whole person again.

Yay awesome thank you! :) I am excited :)
Just please message me when it's up so I make sure to notice. I get very distracted sometimes and if I don't get a note I may forget. I'm very busy with RL right now because I lost my home and am looking for a new one.

Im really sorry and hope you find a good place to be in, I also had a time where I was pretty much homeless last year and me and my mom had to find one soon so i could go to school, thankfully my family got back together and we moved back to my step dads and sisters :) You find something soon, good luck

Oh thank you. Yes we'll be fine as soon as I get a place for us.
I'm just saying, my DA use is sporadic because of all that's going on, so please be sure to note me when you're done with it. ^^

Yeah well things got crazy for us. Those bad storms trashed our house. We had two trees through our roof. So we're now staying with my sister for the time being... And looking to move to Birmingham area or maybe somewhere else entirely because we have to find a place. :/ So yeah... things got crazy for us too.

Oh no! I am so sorry! That is crazy!!!!! I hope everything goes well for you guys! I hope that it starts to look up! Have you found any work in birmingham?

ArshnessDreaming Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I don't need to find work in Birmingham. I'm still a freelance illustrator and so it doesn't really change based on where I go. The main thing is finding a house which is crazy right now. The market is horrible.
I hope to keep in touch anyway. Still wanted to get to know you better!
