7 Minutes Without a Crossroads

Sometimes climbing gets tiring, folks.


Lately, I have neglected posting on this blog (As usual, I suppose) and in the next 7 minutes I want to explain a bit of how things are changing in my life.


First, I have an increased anti-depressant dose, as prescribed by doctor. It’s been a week, and energy levels are up already. I am pleased with those results, and they’re getting me back to the page more often.


Second, I am still hard at work on Well Country. I had to push the pre-orders I had up back by about a month each because of the slowness I’d been enduring before the increase in my prescription.


Third, I am in love with writing again. Hell, I may even be attracted to ACTUALLY reading books once more. I didn’t expect that to happen at all, but with a little of the energy I’m currently overflowing, I picked up my copy of “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell” yesterday. It’s a traveling book I picked up at a convention several years ago and left untouched until yesterday.


I wouldn’t say I regret all my low-energy days, months, years…but I wish I had tried to get this kind of increased help sooner. So, I’m climbing again. I’m off the landing and moving up the staircase.


I’m typing fiction, non-fiction, and role-playing game material a bunch all through the last week. I’m seeing the world with more child-like wonder than I have in some time. While this post is not a PSA for anti-depressants (Everyone will have their own solutions to lethargy) I do intend this as a reminder to all you readers and myself not to leave yourself in lurch. Don’t give up, people.


I thought for years that I couldn’t get better. Much as before I got my CPAP machine, I thought that was the best things could feel. Well, I’m pleased to report I was wrong.


There is the timer. Stay safe and thanks for reading.

My first ebook is on sale!

Yes, I finally decided to bite the bullet, and I think its for the better as I didn’t really know what more I could do for this particular story. ‘Trash’, is it’s name, and its the first of my series Age of Ascension… and yes if you noticed a contrast in the book title and the series title that was intentional.

Here is the link to the amazon page in case you want to buy it :
http://www.amazon.com/Trash-Age-of-Ascension-ebook/dp/B009M9EF0Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349523502&sr=8-1&keywords=tim+niederriter

This post isn’t enitrely a shill for my book though, because I’ve been very worried about my reception that I’m getting more and more nervous by the minute. I just hope people aren’t going to say ‘eh its okay’ and leave it at that. Its my first effort to publish myself, and I hope people like it, though I have no illusion that lots of people will read it. I’m just rambling now.

Wish me luck, or check out the book. And if you like it, a review is extra extra credit.

Thanks for your time.
