Something Like Hail – Delayed!

In Comics, Something Like Hail, Something Like Series by Jay Bell

I recently announced that Something Like Hail would be released on September 6th. I thought I could manage that, and maybe I still could, but I would have to rush things. I don’t like rushing things. That’s when mistakes happen. My personal life is pretty hectic at the moment. We took in two strays; one a bird who has since been reunited with its owner, the other a cat who was in critical condition and who we are slowly nursing back to health. On top of that, my German in-laws have come to the United States for the first time ever. I’ve already ignored them for most of the week so I could work. I could do so until they leave, but they’re in their seventies and unlikely to make such a long trip again. Plus there’s the upcoming movie screening in Austin (tickets here) and another in Chicago (tickets here) both of which I’ll be attending. What it all really boils down to is needing to choose between my family and my career. Not that I’ll be taking a full vacation. I’ll still be adding weekly installments to Blank Slate, the ongoing story on Patreon, and the Something Like Summer comic will continue marching on. I’ll be finishing up work on Something Like Hail too, getting it ready for a September 20th release, but at a slower pace that allows me to leave the house for a few hours each day. I love my work. It keeps me going. I don’t want to step away from it, but there needs to be balance. I’m sure you see where I’m coming from. In the meantime, I hope the ongoing projects I’m working on will keep you entertained. There’s always my back catalog of books to peruse, or those of other authors you might want to try. And the comic! I’m so into that right now. It’s free! Give it a read! I’ll be back soon enough with the new book. Thank you for your patience and understanding. For now, I’m pleased to present the final cover design for Hail, although we might tweak the color when we get the print version in hand. We’re trying to make this book white, without it being eye-glaringly bright. I think it’s out of site. Am I right?
