Howdy! Ty, here, and I’ll get to the name change again in a moment, but…
It’s to absolutely no one’s surprise that I’ve been gone for like a year. I’d been goin’ too fast for too long, I think, and it finally caught up with me. So I had to take some time to recover from that. And as soon as I did get done recovering from that, I ended up movin’ to New York. So that’s what’s been goin’ on for the past roundabout 6 months.
I’m finally settled and ready to get things goin’ again.
I’m still tryin’ to figure everything out, for sure, but this is as good a starting point as any.
So let me re-introduce myself. My name is Titan, which is why I go by Ty now, and I’ll be writin’ under the pen name Titan H. C. for the remainder of my foreseeable career.
I’ll also be launchin’ the new release the new release of The Soul that I was workin’ on while I was gone. But details on that are yet to follow.
With that in mind, I’m gonna attempt to explain exactly why I decided to republish this story that I’d already published like 4 years ago.
The answer’s really quite simple, actually–it’s just that I was too young the first time that I did it. The current version of The Soul that’s available for purchase has a lot of really old ideas incorporated into it that just remained ingrained in the manuscript as I revised it over and over and over throughout the years. But it is a story that I began when I was like 14 years old, possibly younger.
Let’s just say it doesn’t stand the test of time.
Now that I’m an adult, I’m older and I’m wiser. And I intend on incorporatin’ all the original ideas that I wanted to pursue with this story but for some reason was too timid to include. So basically I’ve revamped The Soul from the ground up.
Now that I’m an adult, and I’m producin’ adult material, I know which messages I want to send with my fiction, and I know which ways that I wanna get those messages across. And so I need my debut novel to reflect those messages. Because this is also a launching pad for me, for a couple of different ideas.
Well, anyway, that’s enough for now. I have one request to make that if you are a writer–particularly if you’re black or your produce LGBTQ content–let’s talk down below because I would really love to connect with more writers. And this is the whole reason for the platform, anyway, right?
I look forward to seein’ what everyone has to say, and I’ll see y’all around again later. Bye!
