OK, so… I’ve signed up for World Fantasy Con in Arlington VA this November. This is going to be a looooong stretch away from the dogs, since I’ll be hopping straight from DC to Long Beach for Bouchercon the following weekend. Also, I’ve signed up for Rainforest Writers Retreat next February on the assumption that my usual terrifying first quarter schedule won’t be happening next year due to a lack of deadlines. We’ll see…. If you want to keep up with my schedule, please check the Tour page here or the calendar tab on the blog.

I found a nice write up on the Greywalker series today at Book Series in Order. And while the books aren’t actually YA, the write up is very good. Thank you, anonymous writer!

Ack! The copyedit has landed and it’s due back in 2 weeks! Ack! All other projects–including the taxes–will be put on hold until this beast is off my desk (this CE seems to have trodden lightly on my prose, happily for me.) And it’s a good thing I finally got one particular project done, but 3 more are still hanging fire. I may be scarce for a while.

Most years I finish the required novel the first week of the new year, turn it in, and become an exhausted, brain-dead slug. This year, that didn’t happen. I finished the novel and was happy with it. I worked on the SF Thriller until the revision notes came in and then I revised the novel, walking away from what is now the longest book of the series feeling chipper and only the usual degree of day-end tired. I was going to go back to the SF Thriller, but got sidetracked by a couple of personal projects…

I’m experimenting with occasional series of guest blogs on My Own Personal Grey: Write Bites. These are little bites of observation, experience, advice, and anecdote about writing from selected published writers–including self-published writers because the experience of writing doesn’t begin and end at the publishing house door. So, because he asked, the first Write Bite comes from my friend, self-published writer and professional storyteller, M. Todd Gallowglas, author of the Halloween Jack tales among others.

Well. I’m done. The revision and read-through of REVENANT is complete and the file has been sent to my editor and agent. Now I go to work on short stories, taxes, unpacking the last of my boxes and playing with my dogs. Until the copyedit returns.
