Guess Who's Back? Back Again? Bryce Is Back. Tell a Friend.

It's been a while, hasn't it? Apologies, life has a way of growing selfish and demanding one's full attention. But that's okay, things are calming down. And in this calm, I present to you..

Ta-Da!

I am published once again! And this time through a legit publisher, not just me going through Createspace. Which is still legit, but it's not... I don't know. It's just nice to have my name under a publishing house's label. After the whole crazy journey this novel has gone through, it felt incredible to hold it in my hands again. And the new design is absolutely incredible.

So what else is new?
I dunno.

Anyone who has worked in the Capital City's neighboring college town can tell you that when you work there in the summer, you're going to face some financial strain. So I took the liberty of getting a second job so that when the time came I would still be up shit creek, but I would have a paddle. It hasn't been fun. Working six to seven days a week to just have enough money to pay your bills and eat while the more privileged in our society struggle to understand that level of exhaustion when you say you need a break is...

Difficult


But there have been some wonderful moments. The hippy and I have settled into our new home, a beautiful house with three bedrooms and a lawn big enough to attract some attention when I forget to mow it. I've found a job in my degree field (Communications) that allows me to put these skills to use. I call myself a Bakery Administrative Assistant, but if it's easier you may call me a secretary. 


You wish. ;)

I've also been writing comic book reviews for The Outhouse. It's been a wonderful experience and I look forward to continuing to write reviews for them, in exchange for a little bit of money and a lot of free comic books to read. You will find me in their list of staff profiles. Just look for Jacob Sailor, which if you didn't already know, is the rest of my rather long name.


Still a thing.

Jon and I still fuck around with the podcast, and have been outlining a story for the much, much delayed second season. I'll take some blame for it. Two jobs, a writing gig and an internship make it difficult to record a podcast. Oh, yes, speaking of...


I'm basically Peggy Olson.

I've written copy for several flavors of hot sauce from Tongue Huggers, a delicious brand of hot sauce that my brother keeps bugging me to share with him. You can learn about them here.


And that's about it for now. I just wrapped up a thirteen day stretch of work, which occurred fresh off the heels of one day off to separate it from the sixteen day stretch that proceeded it. I'm tired. I'm ready for this weekend. The hippy and I have both days off and will be spending the time together at a wedding and watching Trigun, which both of us are watching now for the first time.


Better late than never.

And so with that, I leave you now, Reader. Trigun and season two of Narcos ain't gonna watch themselves, ya know?
