a pile o’ seals on the Oregon Coast, circa 2006
Got two of my novels updated and out the door this month. Got a very nice personal rejection from DAW back in May on a book that I will probably sub to Elusive Blue Fiction. Still doing that final pass on a third novel that I want to submit. I’m still a little conflicted on where to send this last one though. It’s romantic suspense (about a natural disaster) and I’ve always had a hard time deciding where to send this one.
It looks like Ron Collins and I are going to embark on a nostalgic Novel Dare in the fall. Yay! Can’t wait! I haven’t written a novel in a long while and writing that first draft in a month is a blast! I love that deep immersion in a world and that feeling of intensity from writing it in a concentrated block of time. Doing a novel dare is a lot of fun with a partner, so I’m excited about this one. Now, I need to come up with some ideas to pursue. : P
Getting the final touches completed on a couple of long works (both novelettes!) that Elusive Blue Fiction will be e-publishing next month. These two stories are some of my longest works. One is traditional/high fantasy, called The Needlewoman and the other novelette is a historical mystery called A Dark Gloaming Blue. I’ll post covers here as soon as Elusive Blue Fiction has them available.
Okay, back to work for me.
