and it’s off!  

DEMON HUNTS is revised, spell-checked, and submitted. 8-ball, I never knew thee.

…of course, this is what being out from behind the 8-ball looks like:

- revisions on “Cairn Dancer”, which must be done by mid-next-week because
- my editor’s request for revisions on TRUTHSEEKER were “do you think maybe you can cut a third of the book and replace it with something else? *binkbink*?”
- and then I need to write the proposal for the sixth (SIXTH!) Walker Papers novel
- before writing WAYFINDER, the sequel to TRUTHSEEKER
- after which I have to write a Janx short story

Plus there are 3 manuscripts I need to read, and I need to put together a proposal for the 2nd Chance graphic novel, and the Mia thing, which someday I will think of a title for. Speaking of that last, I need to email Lanny. *emails*

Anyway, I have the weekend OFF. And so does Ted! We may go to Dublin tomorrow. Oot!

Yeah, but annoyingly, I kinda see her point...

I vote for replacing it with a haiku! :)

*laughs* That would surprise her. :)

Or perhaps some Mad Libs?

Congrats on the mass market releases. Once they make the decision to release them in mass market is there contractual agreement that all of the series will be reprinted in this format or is it contingent upon getting enough sold?

I frankly suspect it's contingent on the economy. The books have continued to do very well in trade, and I think more or less the only reason they're going to mass market now is because they finally decided economic straits were sufficient to to perhaps offer people a cheaper option.

In other words, I have *no idea* if the fourth book will be released in mass market next year before the fifth, but I pretty much doubt it, especially since they've got the fifth book scheduled for June, and intend to release the Negotiator trilogy in mass market in April.
