Greetings friends and readers, so good to have you back again. Thanks for stopping by. It’s been a busy week for me, working, writing, and so forth. The writing’s been rewarding though, I’m making real progress on the next Aeonith novel. This one’s going to turn out to be a big one, with lots of story that covers tons of ground, and includes more than five times as many characters as all three of the Lightbringer stories put together! Whew that’s alot of folks, but they’re all important to the story. This next story will introduce much more of the world of Aeonith, it’s people and its history. There’s still alot of work to do on it, so I don’t have any idea when it’ll be ready.

As per the title of this post, I’d like to offer a sincere thank you. One goes out to my readers of course, but the main recipients of this particular gratitude goes out to my family, my dear wife and children. As anyone who’s ever attempted to write a piece of fiction can attest, it requires time, more than anything else. And for a project as big as a novel, the writing will take a whole mess of it! George Martin, for instance, the writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, has taken an average of four years to write each of his novels. Lord of the Rings took Tolkien twelve years. Granted, these works are all far larger than anything I’ve yet attempted, but it gives you an idea of how long a novel can take. Add to that the problem trying to carry a full-time job to support a family, along with maintaining a domicile, and you can see where one’s time can become a valuable commodity. Now try adding two online college courses on top of that, and you’ve pretty well got my current life’s schedule. My wonderful wife and children have already generously sacrificed many hours to my writing that they could otherwise be spending with me, and I love and adore them for it. One day(soon I would hope, if I can finish my manuscript and sell it quickly) the writing will be supporting these wonderful people who spend their lives with me locked up writing stories, but for now I’m firmly divided between all these varying activities. I’d just like to give these three people who make my life complete an acknowledgement for the sacrifice they’re making. I love all three of them, and thank them all from the bottom of my heart.

Speaking of the writing, there’s a new picture on the website, as well as a new story on Tales of Aeonith! Be sure to jump on over and check them out!

Well, that’s it for now, until next time, Thanks for reading!!

See You in the Future,

J S Eaton
