Stone’s Throe now available!  

My pulp fiction novel, STONE’S THROE, is now available for general purchase direct from the publisher! It’ll be up on Amazon and other locations soon, I expect, and I’ll let people know when it is, but if you want it hot off the presses, you know where to go!

Oh! Oh! Oh! My former editor at Harlequin, Mary-Theresa Hussey, has launched a freelance editorial service, so if you’re in a position of looking for an editor, I can recommend her highly!

AND on that note, I have engaged her services for the editing of REDEEMER! I’m very excited about this, because I’ve, uh, worked with her on like 17 books, and I think she’s the perfect editor for that project! So *happy dance*! And actually that means I’ve got the whole production team lined up for that project, so all I have to do is, y’know. Write it. :)

Speaking of which, the goal is to start work on it in March. I’m within spitting distance of done with MAGIC & MANNERS (where ‘spitting distance’ means ‘god damn it this book is going to turn out to be 120K after all’), which will go through a quick revision process later this month and then go off to my other former editor who now runs an editorial service, and then I’ll be revising the hideously overdue 3rd book for my nephew. If all goes according to plan (which it won’t, because next week is a week off from school) those things will take the last two weeks of February, after which I’ll launch into REDEEMER.

My *plan* for that project is to go back through the synopsis and develop it to a much greater degree so that I have a really clean road map to follow. That’ll probably take a couple of weeks, but should make the actual writing a six to eight week project. My hope is to have a draft for Matrice by the middle of May, although that may be slightly too ambitious. I guess we’ll see. :)

Yay! All good things! *twirl*

I'm pretty sure I didn't buy into the Kickstarter where Stone's Throe was a perk, so planning on buying it soon as it's available on Amazon. Possibly travel reading material, if it comes out in time. Woooot. :)

You'd have your copy of it via the Kickstarter by now if you had, so you probably didn't. :) I'll post when I see it's up on amazon!

I arrived at my desk at work this morning to find a large box from Fort Wayne, IN on it. Looking inside I discovered, buried deep within the air bags, a book.

So yeah, the physical copies are arriving on the European side of the pond now.

(Also, that was a huge package for a book.)

One cannot protect pulp too carefully!
