Hello again, dear Readers. It’s been a few days. I made it through the first gate of the holiday season only slightly singed. Now I can keep my head down and my breath held for the second gate. Once we pass the New Year I’ll be able to relax again.
It’s a crisp, chilly morning. Well below freezing, so Miss B, despite her angst at the thought, will probably stay home when I go for a run. The last thing we need is her paws shredded on ice.
Let’s see–news! I have news.
* I won/finished NaNo this year with The Marked. The zero draft of that book is now DONE, DONE, DONE.
* tinyBATMAN has a full-time nurse now. I swear I’ll tell you how that happened, but not today.
* Agent Gemini releases TOMORROW! If you liked Cal and Trinity from Agent Zero, you’re in for a treat. Now, if you want to read an exclusive excerpt, be sure to sign up for my New Releases newsletter before tomorrow–the sign-up box is on the right-hand side of the very page you’re reading now.
* Speaking of excerpts, my Patreon page has been revamped, and I’m offering more options. You can sign up for excerpts of The Marked, Steelflower’s Song, and the third Gallow & Ragged book, Wasteland King. You can also sign up to hear me read sections of my books. I’m going to be a lot more active in offering stuff over at Patreon–bits of works in progress, things you won’t see anywhere else, things you’ll see even before my editors do. I’ll probably start v-logging questions submitted through the Contact Form, as well.
As for other news, well, the kids are marking time until winter break, I am shifting to revising Wasteland King and Rattlesnake Wind, in order to get both out the door before the New Year. I’m also blazing ahead on Steelflower’s Song. It will be good to write that book while it’s frosty outside, I think. And it’s also time for me to start working on Leva’s book–werewolves and genetic manipulation, oh my.
It feels good to be back in the saddle, even if my head is somewhat tender from pushing out The Marked. Which probably won’t sell to anyone, but I like the story, so there it is.
Time to get back to work.
