To my handful of fans who are wondering when I'm going to continue with the story of Mark & Carl that I began in About Carl:
I'm having trouble getting motivated on the sequel, Loyal Opposition. I have the rest of it diagrammed and know what I want to do with the two characters, and I intended to continue their story while immersing them in the world of politics, which is a big interest of mine. However, I'm finding politics to be a very toxic and unpleasant subject right now (including here in Canada) and to be honest I'm just not feeling the enthusiasm to write on that theme at the moment. I will get back to this story at some point, but I have to put it on hold right now until I'm in a better frame of mind.
That being said, I'm planning to write a series of loosely-connected short stories set in the fictional Selkirk County of the About Carl series, about gay men living in rural Ontario (a subject close to my heart). I plan to start work on that very soon.
