& that’s a wrap  

Aaaaaaaaaand that’s a wrap: SHAMAN RISES went off to my editor yesterday afternoon, and now it’s all over but the revisions. I have one book left under contract and then I’m unemployed. :)

I vacillate between relief and panic on that topic, of course. It does rather help knowing that if push comes to shove, I expect I could run a Kickstarter (perhaps for the 3rd Inheritors’ Cycle book) to cover my bases for a while.

In the meantime, however, I do have a number of projects lined up–3 short stories owed to people, 2 more books for my nephew, the ElectriCity comic script–and that’s before I even start working on proposals for new series.

Very well done!

sniffles. I have a feeling I'll cry when I read Shaman Rises :).

But it is good that you have other projects in the pipeline. BTW, any news about Angles? ( I know you told me on twitter that you hadn't started the next round of revisions yet. But that was sometime 2012, or maybe 2011. And I really liked that book :) )

And Jumbletown. Pretty please tell me you are planning a proposal for Jumbletown?

Angles is being looked at by a YA agent. If he takes me on, I'll pitch Jumbletown his way and see if it sticks. :)

Yay! *crosses fingers that the agent will take Catie on*

Have you considered putting some of your Photos up for sale during your unemployment? They are some excellent work!

Thank you! And yes, I've frequently considered it, but I completely lack the discipline or knowledge to create a proper storefront, nevermind actually promote stuff... :)

Yay for finishing!
and you don't already have an agent? Or is it that your current agent doesn't handle YA? What is this Angles of which you speak?

My agent and I have parted ways. Angles is an upper-middle-grade/YA thing I wrote a long time ago that I haven't sold yet. :)

Ah. That's tough. But I can't imagine that you will have a tough time finding another one, since you are Teh Bomb.

(Another author friend of mine did this recently too.)
