Hey everybody,

I know I’ve been neglecting this website for some time now, but I definitely have been writing and hope to have a few new posts up starting in the next week.

Mostly things have been dead around here because for the last year and a half I’ve taken up a career in museums, specifically in collections management taking care of the 95% of the artworks and artifacts that a museum holds in storage when they’re not on view to the public. It’s a very rewarding line of work but it’s exhausting, and I’ve had very little time or energy to devote to my writing.

What I have been able to do is conceive of and begin writing my next book project, a moral philosophy book entitled Virtuous Vices: Defending the Seven Deadly Sins, which makes the claim that the seven most historically denegrated and decried of human urges are not all the evil they appear to be and takes them each in turn finding their higher, more enlightened humanistic value.  A few of the essays will be shared here on this website, and the rest will be available as they are written to the patrons who subscribe to my new page over on Patreon before the book comes out early next year.

I’m hoping that Patreon will be a way of facilitating my writing, and I hope if you’ve enjoyed my work so far you’ll consider supporting me this way.  There are reward tiers for contributions of $5, $10, and $25/month, and they include ebooks, physical books, and discount codes, plus access to Patron-only polls, giveaways, and updates.  The money I raise will go a long way toward enabling not only my current and future book projects, but also the essays I contribute here.

But Not Forgotten is not abandoned, just on hold for the moment because of the enormous amount of research that it requires.  I hope I’ll be able to get back to it soon.
