Monday: Stressful plus expensive, with an unwanted 400-mile round trip one-day drive thrown in just to make things even more of a pain in the keester. Today, with problem solved, and day open for writing and family: Priceless. For what it’s worth. Saw the comments on the snippet, and realized that a snippet would be the perfect thing to post … Continue reading →
I’m not going to give too much set up here. My young heroes have made a life-or-death deal with the nightling Kai-lord, and have realized he doesn’t intend to keep his end of it.

I ended up ditching the initial language I developed for … Continue reading →
I was going to be more here. But I’ve been working on the printed copy of RUBY KEY since Wednesday, and haven’t been by the computer. It’s going well, I’m falling in love with the characters and the story again, and everything is smoothing out and shaping up nicely. I’ll be back to the computer on Monday.

Deadline 1: Got the GREEN MAGIC proposal off to Robin a couple days ago, heard back from her yesterday with revision requests (very small—overall, she was excited about the proposal), made the revisions over a couple of hours yesterday and resent the complete package, and that will go off to the editor, possibly today.
