I’ve been lying low for a while now, but I wanted to write a brief update for two reasons. One, to silence all these rumors that I’m either dead or hiding out in darkest Peru (I’m sure SOMEONE suspected either of those); and two, to give a brief explanation of how things have been going in the world of Lindsay Schopfer, Author-At-Large.
Unfortunately, there’s been some disappointments. I’ve had to cancel my book tour for 2018, and I’m not sure how soon the third Keltin Moore novel will be coming out. My mailing list has also been hit hard by the new GDPR law as everyone who has signed up in the past has to manually opt-in or be removed.
As a result of these difficulties, I’m taking the time to reevaluate a lot of what I was doing in my efforts to be a successful author. I’m not ready yet to share what may be changed, but I will say that I’m trying to find ways to promote myself that won’t burn me out or take too much time away from my family, teaching job, and writing. I’ll be making more announcements once I’m through researching, experimenting, and praying for guidance.
One experiment I can share now is something I’m trying out at the Brass Screw Confederacy next month. Reaching back to my days of writing and acting for the theater, I’m planning to do a short, one-man-show in character as Keltin Moore where I’ll be telling some never-before heard tales of his adventures. I have no idea if this will be a one-time-thing or if I’ll expand this idea in the future. For now, it’s simply exciting to try something new and blow the dust off some skills and talents I haven’t used in a long time.
I want to thank all of my friends and fans for your patience as I work to figure some things out. In the meantime, you can show support by reading and sharing my stories, subscribing to my mailing list (be sure to opt-in!), and checking out my Guild of Adventurers. Thanks again, and see you all soon.
