Well, I was! But my posts have been over at Kickstarter, under “updates” on my project page there. The blog is for backers only. Now that the fundraising campaign is over, I’ll be occasionally posting here, and also beginning to create a blog over at my book’s website.
Right now, I’m in the last 30-day stretch of my first manuscript deadline for Finding Fernanda! On October 1st, I’ll be handing in about 300 pages to my editor at Beacon Press. I’m terribly excited.
Meanwhile, for the month of August, I’ve been in Guatemala City reporting. During the past few weeks, my reporting partner Juan Carlos Llorca and I have tried to do daily reporter’s updates via video. We’re not very good at it, but I’m going to try to edit the clips into a bunch of somewhat-watchable clips. No promises, but they’re meant to end up on the website for Finding Fernanda once it’s fully up and running.
I’ve also learned how to cook pollo con loroco. Mmmmm.
