Judi Lundy died last night at 11:15 pm. According to her son, she went peacefully and without pain. She was Fan GOH at Concave 26, from March 4-6 this year, and I had a picture of her from that, which I wanted to post here. I can’t find it. She was a wonderful, caring person, and those of us who … Continue reading →

I finally received my author’s copies of TALYN. I have several copies I’m sending out; not sure how many I’ll have left when I’m done, but we’ll do something fun with them. No word on Judi, either last night or this morning. And I’m still doing taxes.
Taxes. Feh. Today was taxes, tomorrow will be taxes, and Wednesday might be too. As for Judi, the news is not good. She’s getting worse. I don’t think there’s much hope left at this point.
Heard from Jim about Judi. She has written a living will. She’s still hospitalized, and currently on comfort measure only (which is bad); the situation is grim. At this point, sending prayers for energy and comfort, and for her to be able to keep down food seem to be the best bets. Please keep her in your thoughts.
Eeyugh. I’ll spent today and will be off for the next few days, wallowing in the thrill-a-minute fun that is income tax prep. Following that, I look forward to a leap forward into the several writing projects I have waiting. Unfortunately, there is no deadline quite so total as that which comes due to the IRS. So. Later.
Got the series worldbuilding and proposal out the door yesterday; I’m really happy with it. Won’t know anything until the middle of next week at the earliest, because my editor is going to be out of town, but she acknowledged receipt and told me she’d take a look as soon as she could. That’s good enough. I’m pulling the next … Continue reading →
If you’re a female or know one who’s very dear to you… pass this along. They really make sense! We can now add to the list of victims the retired 77-yr.-old TCU professor from Ft. Worth whose body was found last week in Oklahoma–and the 11-yr.-old in Sarasota, FL. Because of these recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of … Continue reading →
Therefore, I have decided that you need a laugh, too. Link requires Flash, but it is clean, funny, wonderful, and worth any download wait. … Continue reading →
I’m getting a lot done, and what I’m getting is good. I’m excited about the stories that are popping up from the worldbuilding, I’m fascinated by the characters I’m meeting, and the quirks of the world are drawing me in and forward. Here’s the thing, though. If I sell this world and these stories, I’m unlikely to write them under … Continue reading →
